May I present........



I am so excited.  As some of you are aware, I have a son with special needs and at the very beginning I spent months in and out of hospital.  It sucked....big time.  I have never written about it here and never will but lets just say, that this farm chick nearly went insane cooped up in a hospital bed. 

Fast Forward 14 odd years....it's time to give a bit back.   We still have some pathology tests to do but it's looking good.  We have been given the opportunity to visit our local hospital for 1 1/2 ish hours per week.  Layla will be providing the wonderful benefits of pet therapy, spending time with patients and offerering a chat, a floppy ear to listen and a paw to shake. This is going to be soooooo much fun!!

SPECIAL THANKS go to....... 

Vanda and her band of Volunteers at Delta Society Geelong for all there help and hard work.

Kylie Johnstone (and family) of Mannaview Labradors for breeding the best Labradors on the PLANET!!!  (I even think she may have some delicious puppies available at the moment.) 

If you would like to donate to Delta Society or Sponsor Layla and myself in the "Red Bandanna Club" Click HERE.

Thanks again to everyone involved.  Woof! xx
