Hello, my name is Dixie and this is my story………
A very long time ago (in 2001), sometime after I was born, a young family came to my kennel in Moe Victoria and took me home. This was a bit of a surprise as I had been specially bred for my facial markings and was going to be a show dog, but my teeth weren’t quite right for a show dog. There were two young boys to play with me and we were going to have lots of fun growing up together. They were very noisy and active which suited me as I am a Fox Terrier and just love to run and play like them. One day I went to the Vet and came home later very sore and sorry for myself. I had stitches on my belly and wasn't allowed to lick myself in the area.
I would just like to acknowledge and thank you for the following:
1. Your staff member Katie for being so helpful and responsive. She went beyond her duty and found out that my second dog was registered on another registry and gave me their number to check with them….I have also had similar excellent service from CAR in the past when I have needed to update my details.
2. The new email sent on the anniversary of pet registration with CAR that reminds people to ensure their records are accurate – what a good idea and it reminds everyone to ensure that their details are up to date - what a good idea – so thankyou for that as generally it is like a “set and forget” thing.
I have made a donation to your organisation and included a photo of Reggie.
On Christmas 2006 we got our little British Short Hair kitten, Rocket. She was an indoor cat and loved running up and down the hallway at lightning speed. She was loved by all but, as she got older, she developed a very nasty habit of peeing in my Dad's shoes!! This was an obvious sign Rocket and my Dad did not get on. Four years later, in 2010, we reluctantly moved Rocket outside because my Dad was tired of buying new shoes. Since she had been an indoor cat her whole life she totally hated this new situation! So after one week she ran away. She was gone for two and half years!
