"I do love a scrag fight ," says little Essie, aka Vladimir Putin. As Dad was giving my 16 yr old sister Romy Bom her medication in a ball I wanted that ball too. Being half blind and full of bad business I went for it, and Rom Bom, the gentlest of all decided to defend her meatball. As you do.
And so I have had a trip to the vet. Yep. Proudly showed off my face to everyone in the waiting room who sat looking in horror.
"OMG, was she attacked?"
"No, " I said, jiggling the little monster on my knee in her pale pink blankie, with her pale pink harness, and leash, with blood oozing from her eyelid, "she started it."
Their mouths make a big OOOOOOOOHHHH, and subtly shift away from us - the brawlers.
Vet Dylan has discovered a tear in the bottom eye lid - and it will require stitches tomorrow. Smugs is beside herself. Blood AND a scar. It matches the puncture she has on her stomach from when she took on the head prefect Clementine last week, and had blood dripping from underneath. Another trip to the vet, antibiotics and pain relief - she is hoping this also leaves a scar. How COOL, she says.
I've told Vlad - cut it out. Leave her alone. Don't do it. Get away Smug Bug, Essie, NOOOOOOO - and she pretty much listens but her inner cactus has a pretty loud voice and sometimes she just can't hear me. Smugs is beside herself that she has a WOUND she can show everyone.
I try to dress her in pink. I try to make her a lady. But honest to God, I think she is one of those grumpy old Gladys ladies - with an osti frock and sensible walkers and a large handbag for belting people. ...
Poor little girl, the biter would've gotten a pop on the nose!
God bless her 💋❤️
Poor Baby she is absolutely one of a kind.
Ohhh smugs, you savage lass!
Sorry . It's a funny story. Poor little girl. Hope is is a little better soon.
I shouldn't laugh, but the mental picture is so vivid. The thought of that little lady, pretty in pink, proudly displaying her war wounds, is so funny 😂 Essie, listen to Mama next time and put the cactus pants away 🌵😂 Besides, you have more than enough of your own meds without stealing from your sister 🙄 The score: Romy 1 Essie 0 Puppy hugs to all involved in this debarcle ❤ Kae, have a wine or three tonight 🍷🍷🍷
Sounds like two mini foxies I had. They were sisters. One was the perpetrator of fights but she was the one who always ended up at the vets. Her sister was slow to anger but when she got angry her sister hid 😂
Poor Darling ❤️❤️
Aaww the little Brawler 😂 Kae you have a way with words! Hope Essie recovers and here's hoping she put her cactus pants away so she doesn't need to get any more cuts and stitches 🌵
Bless her I hope to be a feisty old dog one day too !!!!
Oh dear hope she makes a quick recovery
you go girl feel better soon precious ❤️
Poor little darling.
Oh dear ❤️
A little old girl with attitude 😩 hope she doesn’t get into any more brawls💞
Oh dear what's next on the list of warrior wounds .🤣🤣💞💞
Aw, poor, sweet girl!
Omg I LOVE this story, they're highly entertaining!!!
Bless the little terror. Get well soon 💖🐾
Poor possum. Just one of those little misunderstandings and glad she didn't lose the eye. All the best little one xxx
Dakota is a five month old rescue kitty at Balwyn Veterinary Surgery
I met her today and she is absolutely beautiful. She's such a calm, cool collected kitten.
No bouncing off the walls and climbing the curtains for her! She's way too demure for that! She'd prefer to pose for the paparazzi, or put her paw up to stop that camera when it's not aimed at her best side 🤣😎
Dakota's sibling was just adopted and now she's waiiting, waiting, waiting every so patiently for her turn. But being the good girl she is, she's taking it all in her stride.
Seriously though, this girl is divine - all enquiries to Balwyn Veterinary Surgery ...
Coco for short.

Stunning markings. I am sure she will be gone in a flash.....

The absolutely brilliant news is, Rosie has vision!!!!!
She's on a plethora of post cataract surgery meds and drops, multiple times a day, and had a little set back with some of her tissue sticking to her pupil. She had to have an anti-coagulant injection in her eye under sedation, which thank goodness, solved the problem.... phew!
Her reactions to her other foster friends is absolutely priceless, she is constantly looking at them, sniffing them and looking at them again, totally intrigued with them. It's a beautiful thing to watch.
She still has a long way to go with the healing, it is just early days, but she is in the best of hands with foster mum Ruth xx ...
Just beautiful news.
How brilliant is that . Bless your work Rescued with Love xx
Amazing!! What wonderful news 💜
What wonderful news. Onward and upward from here sweet girl
She won't know herself now
Wow! Yay for Rosie! Thank you RWL. 🐾💕🐾💕
Such good news.💖🐶
CONGRATULATIONS to everyone involved. A beautifully heartwarming outcome.💛💛💛
Brilliant news, thank you Ruth and RWL❤️
What a lovely little girl.
That is the best news I’ve had all day. Go Rosie and thank you to all the RWL team.💕💕
Fantastic news , must sem like a whole new world to her . Sight and plenty of love 💕💕💕💕
So wonderful to hear
Goeie nuus. So n pragtige hondjie. Sterkte Rosie
Absolutely, brilliant Rosie you are so lucky! A big thankyou to everyone who has helped to make this happen xxx👌♥️
That is wonderful... best news🙏🙏🙏
Wonderful news,so happy for her xxx 🐾💖🐾
Little Mindy met Gem at Irene's yesterday and was quite content to share a bed 🤣Look how little she is!! 😍
She's been at the vet today getting things checked out. Bloods and a urine test. We have a grade 5 heart murmur, a little mammary lump and a very snotty and snuffly nose. We'll find out more when tests come back and sort out a plan for her then xx
She is just the teenist, tiniest, cutest, tottery little bub xx ...
Miss Mindy Moo you look gorgeous.
They’re both absolutely beautiful
Gem looks about the age of my chocolate Lab 14&1/2. Such gentle giants🐾🐾💕💕
Two delicious beauties xx
Gem just leaves enough room for such a tiny fur babe ❤🐾💕🐾💕🐾💕🐾💕
Thanks Irene. Xxx
Oh she is just tiny and gorgeous
How lovely are those 2 darlings 💕🐾🐾
Both gorgeous girls💖💖
Gorgeous little pooches
Ohhh that face ❤️❤️❤️
So special I would so like her for my forever friend
So adorable! Sharing the bed is caring. Both furbabies are so precious!🙏🐾💙
Due to his skin condition, and some thick matting, new boy spender has had a nudie cut! 😂 But he's still pretty cute.
It will make treating his skin easier, let it breath and we know, with foster Mumma Ruth's care (she works magic on our skin issue dogs) it won't be long until he is all healed, and his skin and fur is feeling and looking a million dollars.
He's just had a vet visit with Dr Dylan who says he is the loveliest boy.
He's had a check all over. He has infected ears either still or again, lots of thickened skin, which is healing, but he's had a skin scrape to check for any nasties. He's had a tear test as his tear production is zero and he has sore gunky little eyes.
He has a funny little cowboy gait, but Dr Dylan isn't too concerned as he gets around just fine and doesn't show any signs of discomfort he'll check things out further when he's under anesthetic for his dental.
He's had a blood test (as we do with all our new bubs) so we can make sure there's no obvious issues showing up, and we have a baseline for them), especially before they go under anesthetic.
So he's on antibiotics for ears and skin, 2 lots of eye meds for his dry eyes and when we get his blood results back, if he has the all clear he'll be booked in for a dental.
He has settled in beautifully and is just the sweetest, sweetest little man xx ...
Awwww sweet Babie
Oh my.... reminds me of my little dude that passed a long time ago... little cowboy gait indeed!
Awe bless bubba boy Spender . You are so Gorgeous xxx
He’s the sweetest boy reminds me of my girl Brandi that has just passed
Angela Testa brown eyed Billie.... what a delightful edition he could be🤔😳😬
Bless Spencer 🐕💋🐕
best wishes little man <3
He is still gorgeous.
Ohhh.. my heart! What a little darling! 💞😍
Why do people take these poor little creatures on and leave them to literally rot , and the vile despicable breeders need to be Made accountable
What's going on with those front legs
It will grow back, and he probably feels a lot better now. 🙂
Looking handsome ❤️🐾
Pobrecito. Que sr recupere pronto

The Journey - Part 5
The boys are back in town 🎵
There was a table set and ready for them back at Irene's place, scones, jam, cream, crackers, coffee.
These two blokes are just the greatest. We seriously are surrounded by such kind and generous people! They enjoyed seeing all your messages, although they didn't think they'd done anything that special, but we know they did!
They happily, came to the rescue, when we hit a huge roadblock, dropping everything, flying up to Queensland, 3 days on the road driving back, pandering to every need of the bubs in their care.
Spencer has gone off to foster mum Ruth's who will get straight onto sorting his skin out. He truly is Mr personality. Once we have him sorted out medically, there will be people queuing up for this little darling man.
Foster mum Jo is picking up Mindy in the morning. She gets to spend one more night with her new best buddy (and servant) Wayne and I'm sure will have Irene pandering to her every whim as well 🤣
Thank you does not seem anywhere near enough, neither does a bottle of scotch, but there is one waiting for each of them xx ...
👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼Well done and. THANK YOU 🙏🏽
Wonderful guys. Enjoy your down time now and thank you for 👍👍🐾

I thought it was time to update your on our Dalai Dog - our best boy, Wix.
After the horror of sickness and we almost lost him, Wix has been a star. Now diabetic we deal with his insulin shots twice a day - and we are happy as clams. Because he is worth it.
Everyone who meets this boy cannot believe his gentleness, his old world manner, like he is an old soul - who has been here before and has come to be of comfort to us - and give us love. We are, besotted with Wix.
Is it possible to be too in love or too smitten with this little man? We say no!
He brings us joy every day - happy and cheerful, gentle and kind - he is the best of friends and family.
Go Wix. ...
I did insulin shots on my little pom for ten years, he lived to be almost 20 and had the very best life.
Thanks for the update, he is a beautiful boy and you are all fabulous for giving him the best life.
Such a sweetie.xx
No it never is too much to be in Love and Smitten with any animal, all they ever want from us is Love, and they give back tenfold. Wix you are precious glad your Diabetes is under control. Stay well darling boy.
Love little Wix 🐾💖
sun positively wonderful news ! Go Wix <3 and your team of helpers too <3
He's a handsome boy and has a loving home and family xo
Gorgeous little soul 🥰 Love you little man xxxxx
He is the image of my little man❤️
Love Wix. He’s a darling. Bless him. ❤️❤️
I have an almost nine year old, big dog that came to me 6 years ago, her owner died, and she was to be here till a home was found for her. I kept her. Now she is diabetic, and blind. But she is my girl, and I take care of her.
I can't believe you posted. I was sitting here wondering why I hadn't seen any post about Wix. I was worried and now I am thrilled to see his beautiful face. So glad he is getting on well. God bless you for caring so very very much. Keep up the good work. 💝💝💝
Ty for the update. What a sweet boy.🌺💙🐾🥰
What an Angel 😇.
Sweet boy...here with diabetic solidarity! 👍👍👍
I believe you can never be too smitten with a precious fur baby or be in love too much ... this little guy would steal anyone’s heart he is adorable ! Enjoy every minute with little Wix 💙
Wonderful news about dear Wix.
So happy this sweet man is well again and happy ìn the love of the Norman family❤
Wishing you a good happy home 🏡 soon
He is my favourite and love the updates. Thankyou for the love he is given. Xx
The Journey - Part 4
Having stayed in Young over night, "the boys" and the bubs stopped in Dubbo about an hour ago, and are on the last leg home. They should be close to or past the border by now. A few more hours and they can open a red! They deserve it.
It's a mammoth and beautiful thing they have one for two little ones that really needed us.
The boys tell me Spencer is a real character, a happy joyful boy. We have our experienced skin problem foster carer, Ruth ready for him when he arrives. He's totally into the routine of getting into the car, snoozing til his next adventure spot, loving sniffing around and exploring, then back into the car off to sleep again.
They did "try" putting the "Princess" Mindy (was Bindy) in the back seat today again, but she was having none of that, thank you very much! And so her royal highness is back riding shotgun. She's a tottery old dear, but she knows shat she wants and she knows when she's in the presence of a couple of softies, who will do what she demands 🤣🤣
See you soon boys with your precious cargo. We love you xx ...
What a great adventure! Thanks once again boys for bringing these little babies back.💜xx
Beautiful story thanks for sharing
Thankyou to two wonderful gentleman, they are keepers don't let these two get away. lol.
Thank you, beautiful people! 💖😇
Thanks for the update.
Hearts of gold ... you are lucky women xx
Great work all.
That’s beautiful. What legends these 2 guys are 👍
Safe travels. Thanks for the update.
They both deserve a bottle of red each,great bloke's,rest well when you get back with your 8 legged cargo.:)
These two angels were certainly....Rescued with Love ❤❤❤
The generosity of these gentlemen could not be measured with words. They are wonderful. Thank you👏👍❤️
Always brings tears to my eyes after seeing all you do for these dear little pets that need so much love! Thankyou all for what you do! 💖👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏
Well done to the boys bringing those 2 dear little fur babies " home "❤
Not all heroes 🦸♂️ wear capes x
Ty so much! They are precious!🐾🥰
Thanks for update beautiful little souls and beautiful big people
Two great guys.... going the distance!! 🐾❤️🌹❤️
Love following the story💕
We're currently in further discussion with vets and specialists in regards to Mork's leg. It looks like the lump is growing and we may have to make some decisions sooner rather than later. We want to get things right for him.
He's a tricky little case, we thought we might have had some wriggle room to watch and wait, but with it looking like it may already be growing, we don't think we have that much wriggle room now. We'll update you when we know some more.
In the meantime this very special, gentle boy is just loving his life.
After trying out every chair in the holiday cottage....
"This chair is too big
This chair is too small"
He found one that's .... Ah just right"
- Morkilocks xx ...
Hope the news isn't so bad. Sending hugs. Xx
Sebding healing players and hugs and kisses to you 🙏🙏🙏🙏😘😘😘😊😊😊😊
Good wishes coming his way, all animals deserve to be happy even if they have started out with the wrong people.
Praying for Mork. Glad he found a chair.
More you little Goldilocks. Sorry that your leg is such a bother.

The Journey - part 3.
The boys left Narrabri this morning, 250ks down and another 250 to 300 to go today, stopping in at Young. All had a good night sleep! Spencer stayed with Peter, and the Pocket Princess Bindy, stayed with Wayne (she's got a soft spot for Wayne).
The cabins were just perfect for the pooches. Little enclosed decks made it safe when opening doors, but tiny Bindy had a problem, her little wobbly legs so tiny, they would fall between the cracks in the decking, so no outside deck time for her, but that's ok, she didn't need to be out there.
Little Spencer is quite the happy little scallywag. He's got his soft bed in the car, curls up and snoozes til the next pit stop. He loves his walks and sniffs and is enjoying his road trippin' with the boys.
Little Miss Muffet Bindy, wants to be held! She rides shotgun on a lap, harnessed in of course. She lets them know she wants them to keep patting her until she goes off to sleep, so they do of course 🤣She has them wrapped around her little paw.
They boys are quite pleased with themselves, takeaway for breakfast lunch and dinner and no wives to tell them otherwise. Quote from Peter: "What?... potatoes are vegetables....!?".
Thank you gentlemen, we love your work xx ...
Yes we do 💖
So sweet, thank you again for going above and beyond for these little possums <3
Amazing, what would be the best way to donate towards the costs of this trip? Thank you for all your hard work, you're all incredible <3
What a great couple of guys. Thank you for helping them ❤️
That is just wonderful, and sounds like such a fun trip! Thank-you, Wayne and Peter.

The JOURNEY - Part 1.
When he was found blind, tottering slowly, pus dripping from both ears, and missing a lot of fur he was picked up by the Ambulance of RSPCA Qld.
Along with another little 15 year old 2.6kg little lady - these two dogs were destined to be RWL babies.
I immediately rang Jetpets and to my horror found out we were unable to carry one of them. Why?
Both Virgin Airlines and Qantas have embargoed bracychephalic breeds after the death of three dogs in one month during the heat. The list on both airlines also includes 'maltese'.
This is a whole other story and while we have never considered malts a 'braccy' breed - we were now facing a serious issue.
With the lovely ladies from New Beginnings sorted with Boof - we had the choice of putting our two little dogs onto dog transport or transporting ourselves.
And so two husbands decided they would do it. Netta's husband Peter and Irene's husband Wayne flew to Brisbane this morning, and hired a car.
They then drove to Wacol to collect "Spencer" and "Bindy".
They are currently around Toowoomba I think as I type this.
The boys have another four or five hours drive before they make it to the caravan park where they are staying overnight and have a 24 vet on call about 1 minute away should they need it.
If anyone every doubted the belief and seriousness of what we do, and how important it is to us to help animals I hope they read this. It is not a fly by night thing for any of us in RWL. We work HARD. And our families and partners work HARD.
The little ones are fine with Peter and Wayne (aka Thelma and Louise) and all I can think is - if you allow us to take animals in need like this - simply and without issue - we will do the rest.
We believe in what we do.
We will update you as the guys go - with photos along the way. We hope you will enjoy seeing how much we truly do mean to make a difference. ...
Poor babies xx
Neither of them look like they are brachyish?
You people are amazing with what you do for these babies in need xx
You guys are amazing
You are all truly amazing and so kind to do what you do for animals in need. Bless each and every one at RWL xoxo
Absolutely legendary effort xxx
You guys are awesome thank you 💕
Safe travels 💕
Beautiful people do wonderful things! Thanks "Thelma and Louise" we wish you a safe and happy trip home with your precious cargo.....💕💘💖 (stay away from cliffs)
Michelle Murray remind you on anything? That road trip was fun. Wonder how gorgeous George is going
How wonderful Peter and Wayne are. Poor little dogs. They really don’t know that they have landed squarely on their paws and life is getting better and better. Crazy that Maltese are on the airlines list. Crazy world we live in. Looking forward to updates.
Thank you for all the wonderful work you do and the wonderful people who help. You are Angel's in disguise. Those poor babies. Help is on the way to happier days. Xx
You people are just wonderful, thank you.❤️💕
This heartwarming post made me cry. You guys a angels here on earth x
Thanks for all you do for these beautiful babies !
Your network are all saints . Everyone of you are truly saints .
Healing prayers little doggies!
What a beautiful gesture you guys are legends👏
Safe travels what absolute beautiful souls you all are. Thank you for saving our most vulnerable seniors through no fault of their own ❤️
Above and beyond...thank you💜

When I think of the people I have met - who have adopted special needs, or elderly palliative dogs - my heart feels like it does a flip flop. These people reassure me that there is good in the world, that I am no alone in thinking this can be a joy to care for an older bub - and above all, it is right. That one word. That it is RIGHT.
Carmela and Kiri adopted Vinnie (was Horatio) from us and had him a short time before he passed. Not only did they give him a divine life, and passing, they came back and adopted Patti, (was April) an elderly girl with a heart condition and a love of life.
People like Carmela and Kiri amaze and humble me. They are what makes our work relevant.
Chatting back and forth with Carmela these last few days Patti had been very ill. And then the news came that they had said their goodbyes and allowed Patti to pass with dignity and respect. Heartbroken and grieving - Carmela, still thinking of others - offered me Patti's unused heart medication which I will now use for Essie.
When we find people like Carmela and Kiri - and even in their grief, are thinking of others - it makes me feel incredibly humbled to have them in our lives. Horatio and Patti was the luckiest of bubs. And a candle is now lit for them, and their Mums, who have taken on the hard yards and done it so beautifully.
Carmela and Kiri we wish you great gentleness and kindness, love and blessings on your loss of your darling girl. Vale Patti. You were so loved. ...
Bless you all x 💞🐶😄
Thank you Carmila and Kiri for looking after Patti and Horotio so well. I am sad that you lost them but you gave them a wonderful life while they were with you. Fly high beautiful babies.
There are people in this torn world who are just special These ladies are two of them. Bless their hearts for affording these two fur babies a chance to know contentment and love. My sincere condolences for your loss RIP Patti now over the rainbow 🌈💔
Sweet girl - heartbreaking. Thank you to her mums for being so generous of hearts. Cx 🙏🌈😥💔
How wonderful to give elderly Patti and Horacio such a wonderful end to their lives. Eyes are leaking.
Carmela and Kiri, there is a very special place for you when it is your time. Hopefully not for some time yet, there are still a few oldies out there 👣👣
That photo says it all. Bless you Carmela and Kiri 💖💖
This is another reason I love you all ♥️
What beautiful people you are xx
Oh so sorry ..you all are the best
Gentle hugs and kisses...💝
My thoughts & love are sent to Carmela & Kiri today as they grieve for Patti. What lovely thoughts of donating Patti's heart medication to you, thank-you. 🌹🌹🌹🙏🙏😘❤🐾❤🐾❤
Such a happy face.
There still good people out there...condolences ❤❤
Just wanted to let you know. The beautiful Rosie has had surgery on one eye today. Her anesthetic experience was managed, but turbulent and so it was decided to only do the one eye at this stage.
The good news is, that her right eye cataract removal went really well, and we're hopeful, oh so hopeful that this alone will help her see!
Her left eye, on the scans shows a line across the lens, which means it may be split, it's still operable, and recommended as she has a higher risk of glaucoma. Because it's a bigger job, and if we're going to have her under anesthetic that long, we'll need an anesthesia specialist.
For now we are very happy, and hopeful our beautiful girl may regain some of her sight. Please send all your positive, healing thoughts.
Thank you, thank you, thank you for making this possible.
My wee yorkie had one eye done and can see amazing we didn't want to out her through it again x
Hope you can see now baby girl
