2 sleeps, 2 sleeps! Until Santa comes that is. I hope your Christmas is shaping up to be a splendid one! If you’re looking for a way to help others at this time of year consider dropping off some goodies to your local dog shelter. They’ll go to help out adorable characters like the lovely Randle who is looking for a home…
Randle is a 10 year old Maltese X Poodle. When Randle came to Doggie Rescue just over a year ago, he would not go to any human. We think was caught by the rangers on a pole which is a very frightening experience. Since then he has learnt to trust the people he knows but will need time to trust his new family. He has put on condition and has now reached his optimum weight- he loves his food! A beautiful gentle boy, ready for a family with lots of patience and understanding. Randle is non-shedding and also cat friendly. (Randle’s Details: Gender: Male, Breed: Maltese X Poodle, Age: 10 years)
If you think you can offer Randle a loving home please contact Monika’s Doggie Rescue or for further details email Monika@doggierescue.com or call on 02 9486 3133.

Have you thought of playing Santa for needy animals in your area?
Today I’d like to introduce you to a very special Friday Fluffy. Meet Gracie. Monika’s Doggie Rescue recently rescued her from the pound where she had been abandoned, and her rescuers quickly realised that she is going blind. Gracie’s vision is absolutely minimal now, and although dogs are very lucky to make it to Doggie Rescue, a shelter is no place for a blind dog. I have it on good authority that Gracie is an absolute sweetheart and she has won the whole shelter over. But Gracie needs a special home and they would love to find her a a place to call her own before Christmas. So I’m putting the call out Pretty Fluffies, do you know of anyone who has space in their homes and hearts for this special little girl?
Gracie is a gentle loyal girl. It is hard to understand why she has been left at the pound. Gracie has manners, is social with other dogs and very affectionate with people. She can cope being left alone for longer periods and has great stamina for those lovely long strolls along the beach. She weighs 15.4kg. Gracie’s vision is not good. The eye specialist said she has retinal degeneration, a congenital problem with Cattle dogs. She comes desexed, C5 vaccinated, heartworm free and microchipped. (Gracie’s Details: Gender: Female, Breed: Cattle Dog, Age: 8 years)
If you think you can offer Gracie a loving home please contact Monika’s Doggie Rescue or for further details email Monika@doggierescue.com

Happy Weekend Pretty Fluffies xo
Wow! What a wonderful week. I have to say I’ve been overwhelmed by the response to our Christmas Giveaway. It’s been great reading through all your comments and learning all the different ways people get enjoyment out of Pretty Fluffy – it just goes to show dogs are truly fabulous additions to our lives. And talking about fabulous additions, here’s a beautiful senior who would make the perfect companion for someone out there. Could it be you? Meet Curly:
Curly is a lovely, older gentleman looking to see out his senior years as a constant comfort to his own special human. If you’re looking for a sensible companion during the day, an exercise buddy who’s happy to take things at a leisurely pace, Curly is your perfect match. He may have some grey whiskers, but also has whole lot of love left to give! (Curly’s Details: Gender: Male, Breed: Pomeranian, Age: 7 years)
If you think you can offer Curly a loving home please contact the Sydney Dogs & Cats Home for more details.
Now I don’t want to alarm anyone but did you realise that there are only 6 weeks left in 2011? That’s right, only 6 weeks! For that very reason I’m keen to make this weekend count, and look forward to checking off a few more items on my 12 Before 2012 List.
But enough about me…What are the things you’d like to achieve before the end of the year? Is it mastering that recipe…planting that garden…or spending more time with your friends/family/partner? I encourage you to take some time out this weekend and think about what makes you happy, and how you can use the remaining 6 weeks of 2011 to bring that happiness in. And speaking of things that bring happiness, meet Jimmy:
Jimmy is social with other dogs and has an active nature. Jimmy walks well on lead and is well mannered. He would prefer a home with no small children. He has a lovely fluffy coat that needs brushing and he weighs 15.6kg. Jimmy is nervous of tradie looking men and is not suitable with cats or rabbits, being a working breed. He comes desexed, C5 vaccinated, heartworm free and microchipped. (Jimmy’s Details: Gender: Male, Breed: Spaniel X Sheltie, Age: 4 years)
If you think you can offer Jimmy a loving home please contact Monika’s Doggie Rescue or for further details email Monika@doggierescue.com
I’d like to welcome Monika’s Doggie Rescue joining our Friday Fluffy fun here today on Pretty Fluffy. For many years Monika Biernacki and a group of volunteers have been rescuing dogs from death row and successfully re-homing them with permanent and loving owners. And right now it’s never been easier to help by simply purchasing their 2012 Calander. It features so many gorgeous faces of past rescues and all proceeds go towards securing fur-ever homes for even more dogs in need. (And just quietly – at $15, it’s a bargain stocking stuffer!) For more info and to purchase head to Monika’s Doggie Rescue.
