Such a handsome chap.

He is 'Snug as a bug in a rug'. Xo

I’m tempted to get one for Winnie but she’s such a Houdini it wouldn’t be on more than 5 minutes.

Looks very comfy & lovely colour.

How much are they?

Dr Sophie, one of our local vets rang me today to share the results of Snowy’s blood tests.

They’re not good. At all.

Sadly, Snowy is in final stage renal failure. Other markers are also exceptionally high - meaning he is not a candidate for dialysis.

His heart issues alone preclude him from successful surgery.

Tomorrow, we along with Laurence, his carer and our vets will give him his wings.

At 16, there is no doubt that Snowy has lived a full life. He is one of those dogs whose spirit reaches out and touches you from the moment you meet him. A special soul.

And though his time with us has been brief - he’s touched not only us - but the people who support and care about what we do. He will be remembered!

And over the last few days - he’s made some new friends and found comfort in being near his big foster brother - Eddie - himself adopted - and adored.

Please take a little moment at about 11am tomorrow to wish Snowy - Godspeed - as he leaves his tired old body behind to frolic freely - where all those we have loved and lost - are waiting and watching for the time we are all reunited.

And ..... just because it looks like they’re all having such jolly fun - Bird vs Dogs. Oscar actually enjoys this game and runs up and down the fence line getting the dogs to chase him! And he didn’t go to a new home - so he’s still with us! #hopespringseternal🐶 #hopespringsgang🐕 #hopespringsholidays#farmstayholidays🚜 #thebird🦃 #notanemubutascloseas🦃 #oscar🦃 ... See MoreSee Less

Exercise for both of them.

You know what that means ? Oscar Big Bird 🐦 is meant to stay !

Conversation must have been interesting because this was Eddie’s reaction. He wants to play with the emu too 😂

That's beautiful

How gorgeous love the little poodles enthusiasm

Surprised and delighted

https://m.youtube.com/watch?feature=youtu.be&v=MjVPR2DQye4Recently we were surprised when Destination Happiness (a lifestyle television show on Channel 9) came out to visit and film a segment for Happy Pets at Hope Springs.

We were even more surprised when Petstock presented us with a cheque for $15,000 for our Pay it Paw-ward Program – helping us to “Keep pets and people together”.

We are very grateful for Pet-Stocks support of local communities and small charities making a direct difference to the wellbeing of their local community. Click here to see the segment.
