After losing our 6 year old staffyxridgeback at start of April I didn't hink I'd be ready for another dog till next year at eraliest.

This is Poppy, a staffyxsharpei that was at the RSPCA. We went and saw her and promptly adopted her. :)

7 months old, was found wandering the streets and taken to RSPCA by the police.

People always wonder how they'll move on after the passing of their best friend, and always think that it'll take a while, but I actually think adopting a new pet helps.  You're not replacing, and not moving on.  But I really think it actually helps to have that new friend to look after, and for the company.  Someone else who is totally relying on you.

This.

We lost 2 dogs within a year. They were 17 & 16. Thought we could never do it again, but Clover has been the best tonic for the loss. We'll never forget the others, and she hasn't replaced them. I think having a totally different personality has just meant that we have a new best friend, and will still always remember the previous.

My God it'll be hard when she eventually leaves us though.

This is Muzzy.

He lives in a little long narrow pool in a steep rocky section of a stream I fly-fish in.  Most of his mates died in August in the drought.  I went there one day and there were dead Murray Cod floating everywhere as the O2 level fell too low - which must have been very low for a resilient native species like Muzzies.  Sad day, it will take years for this stream to recover to it's former glory.

Then in Feb, the creek flooded.  Why Muzzy didn't swim downstream in the high flow to a larger pool is beyond me, but he chose to stay in this hidey hole in the rock face - it is only about 7m long & 1-2m wide with a deep slot at the top end.  Can't be much food washed in there, but he is way to smart to eat my flies - just follows them, then stops & looks at me as if to say "not this dickhead again".

EAT HIM!!!!!!! He's mocking you.

Cut your tongue out!

How this this poor little guy survives is beyond me.  Most cod live in nice big deep holes with lots of cover & food.  Hope he breeds as has superior genetics, but unlikely in his tiny batch-pad.

Apparently poodle hair will grow like ours, unendingly (well, for some of us still ;);) ) and need trimming and grooming every 4 to 6 weeks.
