Scotty is a very energetic and playful 2-year-old smooth collie with a gorgeous temperament. Scottie went to his new home on 27 October 2002. Update: Scottie and his mum have just moved to a new house with a huge backyard, and go to regular obedience training. "His new doggiemate is Spencer a 5yo border collie. Scottie's new yard is huge with lots of grass. His main challenge at the moment is learning the difference between lawn and garden! Scottie's doing great he's learning new commands, at the moment we are practicing the sit, drop, stay, wait, spin - and have just started the heel. I think we are at level 2 really but we will stay in level 1 until he settles around the other dogs (gets a little excited on Sundays). Hoping to join the flyball or agility class in March."

Larry (now Oscar) is a an eight-year old Maltese who was adopted on 20 October. "I live in a house with another dog called Lily who is pretty nice for a girl dog, and three cats. Cats are cats, and these three have given me some hard times I can tell you. However they are now firmly under control and believe me they know who is the boss. (Lily lets me pretend to be the boss now and again just to confuse them.) I have short hair and a really blokey studded collar with a red lead, which does wonders for my image. I get lots of walks around the neighbourhood and sometimes we go to the lake and I run and run. I am looking forward to summer when I can paddle and play on the sand. The food is pretty good - lots of it, and I even let the cats share my bowl if they insist. I get to sleep on the bed, and if it is cold I get under the doona! Absolute heaven. I am happy happy happy."

Ned is a desexed male Rotti x Kelpie who was rehomed on 5 October. "Our family is complete again. We wanted a large dog who would bond with our daughter and be protective of her whilst she was out riding on her horse. Ned has fitted the bill perfectly. He loves to be with people and preferably outside enjoying fresh air and exercise. We all walk to school in the morning and then Ned and I continue on for a couple more kilometres, before returning to my home office where he spends the day happily lazing around until 3pm and then on to the horse paddocks. Ned will start obedience training in earnest next week to ensure that he is an excellent doggie citizen. Our family looks forward to many years with Ned and will always be grateful to Sarah for permitting us to adopt him."
