Update on Jake

I'd always been a cat person, grew up with them, presently have two and was never a dog person. But I always liked Greyhounds, never dreamed you could actually own one. They are special, so special that even Bart Simpson got one way back in Episode ONE, Santa's little Helper. They are sleek and fast, very much like a Cheetah yet don't try and eat you when you attempt to put a leash on them and get them back in the car

Strange Bedfellows!

A couple of weeks ago this young seagull was discovered in the local park with a horribly broken leg. It had been in torrential rain and was very weak and cold. As I have had some experience with bird care over the years, it came my way.

At a vet visit, it was decided that an amputation was the only way of perhaps saving the gull as its chances were nil as things were, but gulls happily live with one leg, as we have all witnessed at the beach, it was worth trying.

Update on Frank

Frank came into GAP as a non-chaser just after his first birthday and found his new home less than two weeks later. He now lives in Auckland with the Grice family. Nancy writes:

Frank has been part of our family for nearly two years now.  I still clearly remember the day he was collected from the Manukau stadium.  It was certainly love at first sight on my part!

Let Sleeping Hounds Lie...

Some dogs whimper or bark in their sleep, while some will sleep perfectly still. And some dogs may choose to sleep in a certain place 

in the home and only in that place, while other dogs can sleep almost anywhere. Sleeping styles can be unique to different breeds or even individual dogs.

Certain breeds sleep more than others, which can be troubling to some pet owners with more than one breed of dog. You may wonder why your golden retriever sleeps 12-14 hours per day while your greyhound snoozes for 18 hours plus.
