Disgusting - but true - hors’doeuvres for dogs. Fossicking for possum poo - apparently it’s very sweet and very appealing - perhaps like fruchocs or chocolate bullets? #hopespringseternal🐶 #hopespringsgang🐕 #hopespringsholidays⛱ #farmstayholidays🚜 #doggydelicacies🐿 ... See MoreSee Less

Omg didn't know that lol

We had blood tests done on Kinako yesterday because our vet was concerned about excessive drinking and weeing and evidence of mammary tumours down both mammary chains.

This often happens in female dogs that have had lots of puppies and and/or remain undesexed. Pyometra is another life threatening and key health risk for undesexed female dogs.

Fortunately, the blood test results were good and there are no major identified issues.

Kinako does now need to have a complex surgery to remove both mammary chains and desex her and we’ll do a scale and polish on her teefies 🦷 at the same time. It’s a big surgery and a big recovery.

She has a follow up appointment in a week and we will book her in for surgery following that - all being well.

#payitpawward🐾💰 will cover the cost of her surgery - not doing it is just not an option (particularly after seeing the result of doing nothing with Casey) in recent times.

Sending lots of love and prayers for a speedy recovery ❤❤🙏🙏🙏

Wish I could give her big squishy cuddles, she's so precious <3

Praying for you little girl sending lots of love and healing your way 🙏🏻💖💖😍

Fellow fur families will relate to this - I think it is hilarious 😆

Furniture Stuff donated a hall table for us to raffle/auction to raise funds for our rescue.

Laurence of #laurenceslodge🐕🐈 was the winning bidder and took delivery of the table on Sunday (I kept forgetting to take it to her).

She put it together - and was debating what to display on it.

Well - wonder no longer - the family have taken the decision out of her hands!

First The Divinity himself (Sir Monty) christened it and then the lesser Royals were allowed to avail themselves of the latest vantage point to purr-view the neighbourhood.

The table has been subject to catification!

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.
