Foster parents, Janice and Stu have discovered 14 yo Sally doesn't know what a bed is. So they are teaching her with positive reinforcement such as treats to enjoy on her bedding.
This is what Janice wrote below...
"We are trying to make the blanket or bed a "happy" place so Sally feels more comfortable on it than sleeping on the hard floor (hence all the dog beds in the background 😂). Holding her treat like a regal queen. Have I said what a good girl Miss Sally is ?? "
Go Sally. We've got your back honey. ...
She is gorgeous.
Martina Mje look at this sweetie.
Pretty sad not knowing a soft bed😪🐾
Sweet Sally 🥰 You'll love your comfy bed in no time 💓
It’s great she’s loved but how sad she doesn’t know what a bed is
thankyou for your furbaby heart, she is beautiful💟
Bless you ,14 and not knowing what a bed is so happy for her that her twilight years will know love and comfort...
Thanks for caring so much for this little babies comfort.
She is precious 💖
Miss Sally is adorable. She is a happy baby.😍
It must be hard getting a dog who has never had a comfy bed to use a bed. Thanks Janice & Stu for caring for Miss Sally.
Blessings to Janice and Stu for caring for this gorgeous baby. Once Sally knows the feeling of real comfort, she won't want to give it up. Lots of love xoxoxo
You are so kind...The fur baby is gorgeous
Aw...I love you Miss Sally. 🐾💕🐾💕
Ohh darling Sally your so cute 🥰
Oh sweet girl...you are discovering the way life should ALWAYS have been. And now, it always will be. xoxoxoxo
Sad isn’t it. Years ago we bought a German Spitz ( one size up from a Pom) from breeders because her puppies turned out with a ‘ broad nose’ even when bred with a different male that went against the breed ‘standard’ . At least she was desexed when we got her at about 3 years old. It wasn’t that she was mistreated but she lived in kennels . It took her ages to sit on the couch besides us & she NEVER would sleep on our bed even though she was welcome to. But we bought her a nice warm bed and it was at the foot of our bed facing the door. She liked the idea of guarding her humans. She lived until she was 15 and she was a ‘steel blue’ Colour & her name was Skye !
Oh darling Sally, try to relax and trust these wonderful people that are making you life more comfortable❤
It is even harder to get a dog who lived in a concrete cage to get used to walking on indoor surfaces. She took a while to get used to lino and still won't walk on tiles. These are the lucky dogs being given a chance to be part of a family. So many never know that love. Patience understanding and love work wonders. Sally has this in abundance, lucky her 💕💕👏🤩
Lemon tree, very pretty......
So glad to see you looking so good baby girl. All you need is Trini Lopez to sing Lemon Tree.
Enjoy the sun Stella under your lemon tree
So adorable lovely photo lucky little dog 🥰❤️
Very Pretty 😍

Dear sweet baby 💖💖💖
Ooh how gorgeous💕
Bless him! 🥰🐶
He will heat her and they really seem to know times as well such a gorgeous boy
Dogs are the best people🥰
What a dear soul 💗
What a darling
Awww Wilbur 🥰 What a sweet boy you are 🤗
That is adorable, he must be trying to smell her return 🥰
How beautiful is this ❤
This is the kind of love the world needs 🥰
bless his little heart 💕
What a beautiful boy, that just melts my heart ❤️🐾
What a beautiful and touching photo. 😍
Our old girl Misty used to do that. She had both eyes removed, but loved going in the car and "looking" up and down the road ♥️
Oh! baby so glad you are enjoying life.
Lovely, he certainly is magic 🐶

Last week we were contacted by a Vet Clinic regarding a client of theirs. A tragedy had happened to the family of which we can't even imagine.
They had welcomed a Golden Retriever x Poodle puppy into their home, and it turns out she has a possible ectopic urethra. This means the urethra doesn't quite connect into the bladder properly - leaving the puppy with a certain level of urine leakage, or at worst full blown incontinence.
Having searched for answers for their 5 month old puppy and checked with some specialists the cost for the surgery alone is around $6000. And it has a 70% success rate.
Distressed the family who have already been through more than anyone should turned to their vet - who told them about the kind of work we do. Feeling they were unable to provide what was required for her with her needs - they were prepared to surrender "Maud' to us.
Last week a few of us discussed the case of Maud and we knew - none of us are set up for a puppy. Particularly a large puppy, timid and in need of socialization. We almost said no, until I was chatting with the girls from New Beginnings Animal Rescue who said they could take her on to foster - but couldn't help financially. We felt we could do the financial side and rehoming - and so - two Rescues became one. For the life of a puppy who just needed a chance.
Two days ago Maud came into care until the girls at NBAR could collect her which was today. A joint effort saw her at our lovely Vet Dylan's clinic and she had a check over, some bloods taken, and we have devised a treatment plan to help Maud.
On 5 February - Maud will be going to the Specialists at Advanced Vet Care - for a consult. If she does indeed have an ectopic urethra we will be going ahead and doing surgery so she will have the chance in life not to be incontinent. All because the lovely girls at NBAR are helping us.
We are SO grateful to have such lovely friends in the animal welfare world who go above and beyond for those they take in. Together holding hands, we will work 50/50 in trying to care for Maud, raise funds, get her to specialists visits, monitor her health and treatments, and help her recovery - then find her a home.
We hope you approve of us working side by side, and taking on a rather larger golden hued maltese 🙂 and making a difference for a not so little puppy - to have a brilliant, kind and loved life.
Meet Maud below. x ...
You guys rock !
Beautiful Maud. Good luck for a wonderful outcome xx

As you know I am all about transparency. So this is one of the scariest posts I'm going to write - because I know there will be people who are going to object, or be down right angry - I hope not. But it's an unknown. So here goes.
A few years ago I needed to step back. I was exhausted in every possible way. RWL was on the brink of closing - and it was only that our lovely Netta took over that RWL survived. Taking on the running of RWL at the time was a big ask. We had gone from a small grassroots rescue group to a fully functioning Charity - and that was because of the changes Netta and the new Committee had brought in at the time. We stepped up and forward. And survived.
But it was on one condition. I did not want Netta working 24/7 like I had done and burning out, because it is a brutal job, not for the faint hearted - it was not a fair ask to do so for free.
We told you then Netta was being paid part time - and you wholeheartedly agreed it was okay. We breathed out - and continued our work in a better, more organized, more professional way.
Netta these past few years has found Rescue is indeed 24/7. She was having days off mid week, but on those days off, emergencies happened, Shelters contacted her, and the life force of RWL continued despite trying to have some down time, she had none.
We discussed the issue - Netta had no time off per se, and you cannot do rescue at the level we do - like that. It fatigues you in a way that is all encompassing - and is no life, I know. And so I offered to work the 2 days Netta had off - so she could rest, away from the coal face, and catch up on life uninterrupted.
The question was should I be paid like Netta, or not. I am doing the same work, keeping the Charity running, Netta is in for the long haul, as am I, and now with the days off - we can manage to keep ourselves healthier in our mind and bodies by having time away from the stress that is rescue. And someone will ALWAYS be there to run RWL - because it is like a hospital - it runs every minute of every day.
And so the answer is yes. I will be paid a small part time wage and it has been agreed to by the Committee and the Foster carers.
Now. If any of you disagree or are unhappy, please let me know. You can email me personally at firstname.lastname@example.org and tell me.
I feel awkward and I don't want any of you upset. But I would rather put myself out there and be transparent to you than hide it and not tell anyone - because RWL means that much to me. It's integrity means that much to me. And your support means more than a great deal. And although RWL has moved from a tiny 2 lady Rescue in the suburbs to a fairly strong advocate over the past 15 years, I want to make sure all the changes we have made, and the growing, and keeping up has been purely for RWL to thrive.
And I think having two people watching RWL every single day of the week, is better than having one, who is exhausted with no days off, and eventually having to close RWL due to burn out.
So there it is RWL supporters.
I hope you can find it in your hearts to understand the choice made.
Kae x ...
Absolutely! Long overdue I believe. xxxooo
Please pay yourself. There is not enough money for all the things you do. Xx
Of course you should be paid. And if anyone has any objection they should spend a day doing what you do and I'm sure they'd change their minds super fast!
Great work where would these beautiful animals be with out you
Of course you should be paid! Thank you for all that you both do, I’m sure your sacrifices are huge💕
A fantastic solution. Thank goodness we have Netta & Kae on the side of those who need it most. God bless you both!!
Yes you should be paid. Great work all of you❤️❤️❤️
Yes you should. 🌸
Absolutely you should be paid it’s great work you do .
You all do an amazing job, never feel like you shouldn't be reimbursed for your time. It's definitely ok 💕
You absolutely deserve to be paid for the 2 days. All the best xxx
Yes. Absolutely !!!!
You are all walking saints....and yes of course you and nett shld be compensated.
Absolutely you should
Thank you for doing a great job! Glad you are looking after yourself
You do a marvelous job,you should be paid Kae.xx
Oh Kae, why shouldn't you be paid, there's a lot more to it than just rescuing these babies. We need this wonderful group to keep functioning, it's a very wise choice to share the responsibilities, and get paid, thumbs up 😀😀
Absolutely, yes, yes, yes!!!!!
Go for it. What you do is more than just rescue. I just can’t imagine how you can deal with such heartbreaking situations and frankly thank god you do. You deserve it.
Its people like you that work tirelessly to ensure your beloved dogs that no one else want are given to the rest of us to ensure they find their forever home full of love...I wouldn't have been blessed to find our 'Sparkles' -a true little sweetheart...❤❤
Absolutely yes, you should be paid for the amazing job you and Nett do.
Totally agree nobody should work 24 / 7 especially in this line of work.
Of course you need to be paid! It’s probably not enough for either of you, IT’S A BIG JOB! You all do a fabulous job ❤️

Our beautiful Tibbie girl Molly is having a much needed dental today. She is also having a tiny little lump removed from her eyelid and we decided to do some X-rays on her hip area as she has some stiffness there, and she might need some pain relief to help her. Molly will be up for adoption soon in the Brisbane Region. So stay tuned and we will keep you posted. Thanks to the lovely Lynne for helping us! ...
She's so scrumptious

Little Sally went to the big park today. Foster mum Janice got very emotional watching her explore the park with so much excitement and enthusiasm. She wanted to run and sniff everything. To think that she has missed out on this for so long. She is such a beautiful girl in every way. Love this little sweetheart ❤ ...
She would've loved every second 💟🐾
Just so lovely ❤❤

Awww that face! 💕
Sometimes, the first day in a new place can be a little overwhelming for some of the bubs who come to us. Some don’t skip a beat, they just slot right in no trouble at all, while others, like Sally, pace and pant. You see Sally’s world was very small before she came to us. Perhaps sometime in the past it had been different, but for quite some time, her world has been just her owner and cats, the inside of her home, and that was it. Sally sadly never went outside – not even to toilet it seems, and so, on arrival at her foster home, in a new big strange world and new people, she paced and she paced.
With time to settle in, gentle reassurances, space, kindness, foster dad Stu sitting himself on the floor with her, foster mum Janice giving her the best and most tempting meals ever, skip forward a few days and Sally is a happy girl. She’s feeling so comfortable she’s happy to help herself to treats from the cupboard! She’s loving little walks outside, lapping up pats and snoozing peacefully – although at this stage she won’t sleep on a bed but is slowly getting used to a snuggly blanket under her.
A big thank you to Janice and Stu for the extra special care they’re showing Sally and helping her to adjust.
Sally is just the sweetest soul who’ll be looking for a home of her own very soon xx ...

Hi I’m Elvis, I’m a 6 year old chihuahua and I weigh in at a tiny 2.5 kilos of pure love. Like all chihuahuas I’m full of personality and love to be with you. The more cuddles I can get the happier I am.
I’m great with cats and other small dogs. I get jealous of other males but get along great with the ladies. I’d be perfectly happy as an only dog so I can get all the attention as let’s face it, it’s all about me. I like to be where you are and love to go in the car but due to arthritis in my front legs I can’t go for walks but a pram ride would be fabulous and guess what, I come with a doggie pram!
Unfortunately, due to my tiny size I’m not suitable for a home with very young children or an apartment as sometimes I yell when I can’t see you.
Whoever adopts me is going to be loved like only a chihuahua can.

Gees such a young dog to have arthritis poor love. We had a pram for our dearly beloved Pip and she was able to go everywhere with us. She loved it 😘
My baby girl who passed away 2 years ago today, at 14 1/2 years old. She was my life. I'm still devastated and too scared to love another 😪 Elvis is just gorgeous and I hope he goes to the best home possible 🙏
Where are you located Elvis?
What a sweet face. ❤️
Little darling! I am the happy owner of a little rescue cross chihuahua/corgi and she is the sweetest little doggie I have ever owned in a long lifetime! She is my sunshine every day and my 'pillow pal' every night!!!!
Such a cutie

Last night we said goodbye to Cherry Pie.
Affectionately known to her mum Ruth, as her Benjamin Button, because she seemed younger the longer she spent with her.
She came to RWL in 2018 as a 16+ year old with mammary tumours - needing the entire chains and lymph nodes removed.
Tricking us into thinking her time with us was limited, foster mum Ruth took her on as her own, as a RWL foundation dog.
Cherry spent 3 years with her mumma Ruth growing younger by the day, but over the past weeks, Cherry's sugar levels were continually dipping low. She had a CT scan on Wednesday which confirmed an Insulinoma - which is a tumour on the pancreas that causes it to produce too much insulin.
Last night she was rushed to emergency, her little body was now gobbling up sugar faster than it could be given and nothing further could be done.
She passed, wrapped in love, in her mumma Ruth's arms.
Our thoughts and love to Ruth we thank you for the love you gave this special girl.
Vale Cherry Pie. ...
Rest in Peace Cherry Pie 🕊🍒🐾 I had a miniature poodle named Cherry when I was a child 🍒❤️
Doesn't matter how old they are, the loss is just as great.. 😢 RIP Cherry Pie 💔
What an angel xxx
Vale little one x
So sorry for your loss!
Rest in peace sweetheart
R.i.p cherry pie
R.I.P. little Cherry Pie. You were loved and will be missed and always remembered with love..
Thank you Ruth and RWL.
Rip sweetie in heaven cherry pie
Sending love and best wishes to Ruth, it’s so sad when we lose a fur baby. Thank you for giving her more time💞
Bless her. Thanks Ruth for giving her a wonderful life
So sad and glad she was loved!
What a cute little girl. Hugs to Mama Ruth for taking in this dear soul.
Comforting to know that she passed being loved so much RIP little soul 💞
I remember cherry pie RIP now😢. Hugs to Ruth xx
Samantha has a home 😁
A lovely home!!!
Her new mum Vicki tells us they're having a wonderful time together. Sam apparently just loves the beach and runs up and down, exploring the cuttlefish (just in case they are edible - luckily they are not). She was initially surprised by the whole concept of waves. They are loving each others company and enjoying multiple walks a day together.
Thank you to Foster Mum Joanna, for the perfect care and the looooong drive to get our girl into her beautiful home xx ...
Happy furever home beautiful Samantha 💓 🐶
Someone is in love with her very own Mummy ... 💖💖💖💖
Congratulations. Adoptions are just the best! 💜💜💜💜🐾🐾🐾🐾

Tis I, Vlad.
As you know I am a sassy gal. These days Mum watches over me as I am a little more frail than I used to be. I don't bite any more (took me around 14 years to stop that) now that I am fully blind, and I forget where I am and walk into walls and corners. I don't like the poached chicken Mum cooks daily so I pig out on dry stuff (that was today, tomorrow I will change my mind)
I like to pee on mum's new rug and blame it on Tix. She caught me this morning and told me off, but I just kept walking to the water bowl and tipped it over. (Sorry, NOT sorry!)
Before Mum's breakfast she gave me my meds and threw me in the bath. Tix my sister pooed inside and I walked all through it. Hey - SHE rolled in it! It was caked on the tiles and Mum hadn't had her coffee I thought her head would explode! HAHAHAHA!
No - she stayed calm, fed Wix, gave him his insulin and cleaned up the floor while he ate and WHOA - lifted me into warm soapy water! What the heck! Is that abuse? I ask you! She cleaned my face and told me to behave and I sat in the bath and plotted my revenge.
Next thing you know I'm in a towel being fluffed and puffed - that is NOT what Vlad does Mum! Vlad is tough! She also closed the side gate so I could not get in the dirt and scuff (my favourite past time) so I got her back. See that pic she posted? That is the best I would give her. Yes. I was NOT having it. Not at all......
Tonight I ate dinner and faffed around everyone's dinner bowls, I like to wander and RAH! (that's my bark) RAH, then go outside and RAH some more just to get up the neighbour's grill.
Mum picks me up and tells me to hush - but I give her one more to go on with. While I am no longer a cactus, I still rule with some importance.
Don't you forget that. Or I will pee on your carpet! ...
Prayers to u sweet one!💟🐾🙏
Mum is a saint
Hilarious god love her ❤

Awwww, good luck honey...you'll be someone's Teddy Bear! 😉😍😊
Late Tuesday afternoon I got a call from my lovely Ranger friend. We have worked together for phew, over a decade now and lots of little ones have come via her to RWL - and had a chance at a new life. 🙂
It was a bit of a doozy she said. A woman who was a hoarder had passed away in her house, and her two cats (they are safe and back in a shelter) and her dog were in the house with her. There is no other family - and this little 14 yo dog would be in the pound by that night.
I quickly rang Netta and she agreed whatever we could do and so I rang our lovely vet staff and said there was a little dog - could she come and overnight until we sorted things out. Of course they said. (how good was that???)
We had to wait for the coroner to arrive at the property - the police were there, and my friend picked up "Sally" and drove her to the clinic - who had closed but were waiting for her.
Sally was given fresh food, water and a comfy bed and settled down quietly for the night.
Not knowing Sally's personality, other than she was a cutie - we decided to try her with some dogs the next morning at the clinic. She seems okay (this is the one thing we can not negotiate on they have to be dog friendly) so lovely Janice and Stu have put their hands up to foster Sally.
We ran bloods, did a C5 Vaccination, heartworm test and she has a bit of a skin issue (flea dermatitis) and she has a couple of lumps to be removed (she was chewing on them).
Our lovely vet Dylan rang today and Sally's bloods are good so we are going ahead with her dental (her teeth are black) and she is just coming around now which is good to hear.
Sally will go home later today with some Meloxicam for her arthritis in her back legs, and antibiotics (for her dental) and flea and worm treatment. We are, so very grateful to our Ranger friend for the care she gives at the coal face to people like this deceased owner. Life is very hard for many - and we feel so sad that this kind of thing still happens - and people fall through the cracks of our society. Hopefully she will know somehow we are going to care for her beloved Sally, and that she will be looked after for life.
We will update you on little Sally in the coming days. x ...
