Pema has passed

Pema is dead.  Tick.  Treated fortnightly. Hair clipped. Vet didn't think it was a tick, admitted he didn't do a thorough search and gave her a shot because she'd had cruciate ligament surgery (a year ago) and sent us back to the house we had rented for our holiday. Vet had 5 dogs in for ticks at the time and seemed to ignore the fact that Pema has been working cattle in a paddock for 6 months even though she'd had knee surgery.

Bad tick season because of wet and vegetation.  Next day she could not walk at all.  Back to vet where nurse found tick in 5 minutes in feathers on a front leg.  Pema crashed about 15 hours into treatment.  Can't recommend South Grafton vet.  Pema was sent on her way in a beautiful wild river in full flood.

I sit and watch you from my window,
Giving yourself away,
You've been working hard all day

I see the ground catch at your feet,
I see the sweet signs of defeat,
Like you're beaten but you feel no pain

And then you turn to me instinctively,
Checking if you're alone,
Like a reflex from my guilty mind

I fall away into the background,
Like a shadow on the wall,
To leave you with your peace of mind

I watch from my window up high,
All alone in this room,
So many people go the same way,
I think it's time that I changed my view

I got nothing got left to lose,
Well you're the part of my memories
That I never wanna live without

Back in Oz with dog, cows, poultry, horses, cats & pigs.

I have returned to Oz and am happily reunited with Pema.  We've traded daily work with political animals for a daily life with farm animals.  Back to a life of primary production instead of methane fueled political lobbying.
Barking Mad Equity for Pet Owners needs a new top dog as my health puts severe restrictions on my travelling. We can still help out with renting-with-pets, and pets-in-strata and some council issued infringement notices in NSW, VIC and QLD.

Guard Dog off Duty

Eedra, proprietor of Barking Mad Equity for Pet Owners, has had to go away due to prolonged and unrelenting threats to her health, accommodation and livelihood by the man (and his agents) who defrauded her of property, superannuation and business back in 2004. At least Pema can laugh about it - don't we love our dogs' lives!

Therefore, the lobbying work of Barking Mad is suspended.  Individual cases for members will be reassigned as required. Court cases will be postponed as required.

Pema is now in a temporary home and doing great work with people - still.  Soon, she wll be reunited with me!

Eedra hopes to be able to return - when the legal system gets an injection of justice, when thugs work both ways or when an advocate comes along with enough guts and authority to say ENOUGH!  Or when karma reaches the white-collar criminal.

Check out past issues of the Bite for information on work Barking Mad has done.  And yes, we're still going Warringah for the Ultra Vires case.
