Comment | Selective school students are 'tired of being told we are undeserving'



2018-04-16T08:32:57+0000

It's time to stop questioning why great opportunities exist for a select few, writes North Sydney Girls High School student Yan Zhai.

Students at the state's selective schools feel their choices and achievements are being put down.

So from now on every time a player drops a ball and gets a toe to it they can say they were attempting a drop kick therefore not a knock on- nice #gamechanger

#Diesel #Mastiff #BFG #Giant #FriendlyBoy #Pawsonality #GiveaDogaHome

Hiya folks,
Just big ol' Diesel here...trying to catch your attention so you don't forget about me :-(.

I'm almost 7-years-old and I'm a male Mastiff X.

I'm a big doggo with even BIGGER dreams. I hope to one day (very soon) have a home to call my own. A dog bed set up in the comfiest part of the house, and a tag around my neck that has my new hoomans details on it...ah, the dream of being owned by someone who loves you...so good, right!?

I'm a gentle giant. I'm a marshmallow inside and enjoy the simple things in life. An old romance movie by candlelight and good quality time with my hoomans.

I don't really enjoy being left on my own for extended periods of time. I sometimes bark, so it may be best to leave me inside when you go out for longer periods of time.

I don't really enjoy the company of felines. They meow a lot and they have weird sandpaper-like-tongues which freaks me out! Plus, they're pretty fun to chase which apparently isn't a good thing!?

I've had basic training, but you can never have too much training and there's still plenty of stuff I want to learn...like how to greet dogs in a respectful way. When I first came to the Refuge I was pretty good with other dogs, but now I'm really unsure :( I need to gain back some of my confidence before I'm introduced to dogs again.

Now, one last thing to chat about is kids; I'm thinking kids over about 10-years-old would be best. I'm a big boy (as we've already established) and It's safest for me to be homed with bigger kids :-).

Oh and one very last thing, I promise! I LOVE belly rubs. I will fall to the floor and expose my belly so that you can give me a belly rub! It's so good <3

Anyway, please come and adopt me. I'm sick of being homeless and depressed :-(.

Love, Diesel xo

Refs tried so hard to help the dra gones

1st try for the dragons was a good play for the ref. Cameras didnt show a ball on the ground at all. So video ref had to go with on field decision. Ive seen better angles in other games. 2nd try for dragons was 50/50. Refs couldnt stop warriors tonight

Please man kiwi ref at a kiwi game bring on next week

Ben Marchant Matthew Williams how do you like them apples!!!

Alexander S. Luke who got the 3 votes?

Daniel Martin Cameron Vazzoler Tom Atkins how good

Best game they have played for years ,anyone want to buy Johnson and free up a few million

Does this mean we're going to stop hearing how the nsw team should be the dragons squad 1-17? 😂

Sad but congrats Warriors

SHAUN WHO?????

Did you tip NZ? Patrick Fakiye

Just face it the two best teams in the comp played a great game. Could of gone either way but thse two teams are gold the eels they are rocks

Scott Hannan are they the real deal this season!?!

Aaron O'Dea Kalem Marsh couldn’t have happened to a better team

Michelle Laing you was right the warriors won ..... could of won that free pizza

Darren Looks like the bubble has burst, Wanna pay up now??

Dylan Waldron broncos lose to knights, broncos then beat warriors, warriors then beat dragons.. you might have been on to something last night haha

That’s one of Isaac Lukes 3-4 good games per year.

Stuart Donaldson the dragons lost the game.

Craig Barton, time for a profile pic update.

Gavin Warner up the mighty warriors !!!

Isaac was awesome great game big fella

#Snoopy #AmericanStaffy #Mastiff #SnoopDogg #Pawsonality #GiveaDogaHome

Yo, my name is Snoopy AKA, Snoop D.O-double-G Snoop Dogg
I'm a 1-and-a-half-year-old male American Staffy X Mastiff.

As Snoop Doggy Dogg once said in one of his most famous songs:
Uh! I'm a nice dude, with some nice dreams...

Well, I AM a nice dude and I DO have nice dreams...so if the shoe fits...

Anyway, enough of that. I'm here to help you get to know Snoopy.
I'm a lovable, affectionate and nutty boy! I love playtimes and friggin' LOVE playing with my frisbee! I just need to learn that eating the frisbee is not part of the game...hehe!

I have some basic manners, but I could probably do with learning some more manners, especially when it comes to meeting other doggs. I get waaaay too excited and will bark at them! Apparently other doggs don't like that?? Weird, huh!? I think I need professional help...lol!

Apart from loving frisbee, I also love rolling around in sand and splashing in water...I'm a fun-loving dude, so what did you expect?

I'm looking for humans who are active and want me to be a part of their fun lives. Everything humans do is interesting to me! I want to be there with you every step of the way....so, don't shut me out and leave me outside...I want to be where the pawty is...inside with you!

So, as you can probably tell, I'm a little bit cheeky sometimes and I think this may be too much for small kids. Teenagers would be pawfect for me though!

So, if you want to turn your life from lonely to absolutely AWESOME, come and visit me at 30 Lemnos St, Shenton Park.

From your new friend,

Snoopy

#AdoptionUpdate #George #Kelpie #BorderCollie #HappilyEverAfter

Look how far George has come in just a few short months!
Don and Bev adopted George (previously known as Liam) from us back in January this year.

George has gone to live in the picturesque winery region and seems to be loving life, which is so great to see!

Don and Bev have really put in the hard yards in terms of meeting George's requirements. He is super energetic and they have gone above and beyond to make sure he gets plenty of exercise each day.

Dogs like George can go stir crazy without proper daily physical exercise, so it's so great to hear they are embracing his energetic breed and loving their walks together.

A big thank you to Don and Bev for being such great 'hoomans' for George.

Here's their update:
________________________________________

Hi Dogs' Refuge Home and Sharon the trainer,

Thanks for your assistance in helping us select Liam. We always try and work on the basis that it is best if the dog selects us.

Liam (likely a Kelpie - Border Collie cross) has now been with us for a few months. He is now “George” as I could not bond with a “Liam”

He was quite content to ride home with us but wanted to stand between the seats so he could see out. He is now content to sit quietly in the back when we go for a ride. He knows his car and is always ready to go for a ride.

Initially George was very quiet and shy. His lampshade protector (cone of shame) did not assist him in exploring his new surroundings. Never the less, he is a very friendly dog, wanting human contact. He did not eat very much when he first arrived home, was not fond of dog food but would eat it with chicken bits etc. George has a controlled diet and has filled out a bit. He was very slender when we got him.

I took him for walks every 2 hours for a couple of days. He never wet or dirtied indoors and eventually we all agreed on a regular schedule of walks. He figured out how to climb stairs with his lampshade on, and slept on the floor in the bedroom.
After a week, we removed his lampshade and he got around much better.

George remains a very quiet dog. Initially he sat quietly at the door when he wanted to go outside. Then he figured out that if he barked at the door we would take him out. He also figured out that if he brings me my shoes, I will take him out - he's a smart boy! It took 2 days for him to train me!

We are now on a schedule of 3 or more walks a day totalling more than 5 km/day. He walks well on a leash. George reacts to some dogs in a defensive manner, but is getting better. Originally he walked around quietly with his tail down, now he walks around with his tail up. He is reserved with most people initially. He has marked his territory and is quite pleased with himself. He has learned the neighbourhood and knows how to find his way home when we are both out on walks - he navigates our walks now! I suspect that George’s previous family owned an older Toyo Landcruiser as he always pays special attention when he hears one.

George makes a good impression on the people he meets. He enjoys snuggling up to Bev when we watch TV.

Training George is a bit of a challenge as he seems to have been trained not to accept food from your hand. He likes a ball, but other toys are of little interest to him. After a month he is starting to play with his Rag-bone. We have not found any treat that he especially likes. We are working on enthusiastic praise phrases for his obedience. While out walking, he is more relaxed as he has more personal space.

George has a very good recall. He understands whistle signals, encouragement, and hand signals to come. George has quickly understood hand signals. Pointing gets an immediate response. He also acknowledges hand signals to cast in the indicated direction.

He is shy around water. I feel confident that he will eventually be at ease in the pool. Right now he enjoys splashing in a shallow pool of water backwashed from our swimming pool.

In summary, George is fitting in well and seems to be enjoying being part of the family.

Don and Bev

Yay happy stories are the best, pls someone adopt poor Charlie over the weekend he needs a home

Lovely story you sound like the perfect owners for him,he has well and truly landed on his feet.😍

My kelpie x border collie from shenton is so similar to this in so many ways, except he has always loved water and food treats! He is nearly 11yrs old now according to their age estimate when I got him and has been a wonderful companion to me and a great introduction to dog ownership to my partner

Oh how sweet. Great times ahead for you all ❤

He has a history- I wonder if he’ll ever overcome it. Lucky for him he has a wonderful new family

Looking so wonderful!!!

well done all of you!

#Charlie #BullArab #INeedaHomePlease #ASKaboutME
#PleaseShare

Hello,

Me, Charlie...again.

I'm a 3-year-old male Bull Arab X in need of a forever home.

I've had to come into the Refuge today because my awesome foster carers have gone on holidays. I hate this place...it SUCKS.
I am so stressed :-(. I just want to go back to my foster home or at least have a glimmer of hope that there is someone out there that is pawfect for me.

I'm constantly watching my back because I just don't know what to expect here. The hoomans are great, love them! But, the other dogs...not so much.

The hooman I am looking for is loving, kind, lives a quiet life, doesn't have a strange fascination with going to dog parks or beaches, will let me spend lots of time inside (especially if you have to go to work) and will LOVE me for exactly who I am...a BIG, friendly giant.

I may not be pawfect, but I am filled with unconditional love and just want someone to love me back.

I love toys so much. I have a huge collection of toys and I consider myself to be pretty lucky - my foster carers have really spoilt me :-D.

I truly am a one in a million pooch, and I know I will make someone very happy...especially with my couch cuddles.

Please pick up your telephone tomorrow after 11am and call 9381 8166 to enquire about me...

Love always,

Charlie

#Puppies #Cuties #Friendly #MustLoveDogs

*** EXPRESSIONS OF INTEREST ***

*PLEASE READ THE WHOLE POST BEFORE ENQUIRING*

WOW! We've had quite a few litters of pups come into the Refuge as of late and we now have some of those pups ready to find their new homes.

Pictured below is Leo, just one of the pups that is looking for his forever home. Leo is a Staffy X Mastiff.

The pups we will have available are all medium to large breeds and we are now taking expressions of interest.

So, Please come in and have a chat to us!

These little bundles of joy will need to go to homes with committed owners. They MUST go to puppy classes to make sure they start off on the right paw and are socialised in a controlled environment. It's also important that they learn polite meet and greets with adult dogs too.

While these pups are settling in, they will need lots of attention so it's best they go to a home where someone can be home with them in the beginning so they can slowly get used to their new routine.

These puppies will be suitable for younger kids providing that parents understand that puppies are demanding for time and require lots of training. Children will also need to understand that they must be gentle with them.

Please come in and complete an adoption questionnaire to be considered for one of our puppies.

*** BEFORE ENQUIRING, PLEASE CONSIDER THE BELOW ***
🐕 Are you ready to care for a dog for it's whole life?
Dogs can live up to the age of 15+, and while puppies are irresistibly cute, they are a long-term commitment.

🐕 Can you financially support your dog for the entirety of it's life?
There are many costs involved with pet ownership. The outright adoption fee is the first thing, however, you will need to be prepared to pay for ongoing costs like food, worming, health checks, vet bills, training, toys and bedding for the life of your dog.

🐕 Do you have time for your new puppy?
Puppies and dogs are very demanding of your time, they require time for exercise, socialisation, grooming, feeding, reward-based training, play time and providing company and attention.

🐕 Is your house and backyard suitable for a puppy?
Having a suitable home for a puppy is very important. If you're renting, you will need approval from your landlord before adopting an animal and you'll also need to consider what will happen if you have to move house. Your house size and yard size will need to be sufficient for the breed of dog that you're interested in and you will need to have secure fencing.

🐕 Will a puppy fit into your lifestyle and priorities?
Puppies need your attention on a daily basis, so you will need to consider things like working hours, whether you take holidays, and how busy your social life is before deciding to get a puppy.

*PLEASE NOTE:
You will need to come in to complete an adoption questionnaire to be considered for one of these puppies or future litters of puppies.

✳️ ✳️ We also have other litters of puppies coming in shortly, so please come in and fill out an adoption questionnaire to be considered.

Hi, I'm Ted.
Kinda like a teddy, but I have way more pawsonality!

I'm a 2-year-old male Bull Arab X.

I would describe myself as 90% good boy, 5% Spaz, 80% good-looking and 100% terrible at maths!

As you can probably tell, I'm here to find a home! Not just any home...a forever home. I don't want no tempawrary home, yo. I want a long-lasting one where I'm loved every day for the rest of my life.

I have a few little quirks...but it makes me who I am. I like to meet new people slowly, so just give me some encouragement and let me come to you slowly - chanting "Go Teddy, it's your birthday" definitely helps. Also, treats help too! The way to my heart is obviously through my pie-hole. Please note: don't actually feed me pies, cause I think there's onion in some, and even though I like to live on the edge, this is a little too close to the edge for my likey!

So, you can probably tell by now, I'm Mr Pawsonality. I will have you laughing in no time. I'm actually pretty excited to meet other dogs, but sometimes I bark at them when I get too excited and they just give me this "What the heck are you bangin' on about, you fog-horn-leg-horn" look. Just remember, slow and steady wins the race...

As much as kids can be fun, I don't think I'm about that life anymore. Kids CAN be fun, but they can also be super dooper annoying too. I just want to chill, and there they are running around the place yelling and screaming...not sure I can cope with that. I need to find my zen, yo.

Look, I know you hoomans gotta make a dollar. So, Im totes okay with you working full-time as long as you meet my requirements listed below in section 9a of the "Awesome Dog Ownership Manual" :

--- Section 9a. - Hooman Full-time Workers ---

- Make time for Teddy when you ARE home, no matter how tired you are

- Before you leave the house in the morning tell Ted "I love you, Ted. I will be home at 6.00pm. You be a good boy and I will see you when I get home"

- Give Ted lots of cuddles

- Leave Ted with brain toys

- Give Ted delicious, quality nom-noms (food)

- Make sure Ted's bed is 'fluffed' just right so he can catch some ZzzZ's during the day

- Leave T.V. on so Ted can watch Ellen DeGeneres

- Sing Ted lullabye's before he goes to sleep at night

- Read Ted a bedtime story each night

- Make sure Ted gets his physical exercise each day

- Love Ted for eternity

So, that's it my friends! If you think I could be the canine for you, please come and see me at 30 Lemnos St, Shenton Park, between the hours of 11am - 3pm!

Paws Truly,

Ted
