With all of NSW and most of Queensland experiencing the worst drought in history - the situation is dire -
the community as a whole is making awesome efforts to help the farmers and country towns to keep going......
donations of hay and other stock feed, and donations of groceries etc have been fantastic.
The above shows where donations can be made where ALL the funds and goods will get to where they're needed.
Remember though the businesses in the small country towns are battling also. Farmers have no cash to spend in their towns.
No cash/no sales means businesses are also going broke. When making your donations, consider buying
from the country towns, spend a weekend there, stay in a motel or hotel or B & B, buy your petrol and items for donations there.

Freddie's mum, Judy, writes.......
"Freddie had an amazing year last year (actually 18 months because the timing of the awards was changed last year).
He was Top Dog in Regular (agility) and Touch n Go (agility without jumps) and got
places in all the other 5 events NADAC run. He was also Top Yorkshire Terrier
worldwide (well USA, Canada and Aus) in NADAc in all events. So proud of my little man."
And we at Yetholme are so proud of both of them!!! Freddie is going on for 11 years young.

The Dog Meat Trade
As barbaric and horrific as it sounds, some groups of the population
in Australia do consume dog and cat meat.
Please consider signing the petition to the Australian Prime Minister
making it illegal to do so.
CHINESE NEW YEAR - YEAR OF THE DOG
I bet there won't be many dogs celebrating in China!!!!
The Winter Olympics are over in PyeongChang, South Korea -- away from the cameras' view, dogs and cats were be brutally slaughtered for meat. There was a plus side, however, as many of the Olympians saw for themselves, firsthand, the horrors that go on behind the scenes and were instrumental in rescuing many dogs, or arranging for their rescue. But now is the time to keep the momentum going, and finally end the horrific dog and cat meat trade for good.
S. Korea is the only country in the world with large-scale, commercial dog meat farms. The animals live in deplorable conditions, and at slaughter are often hung, electrocuted and beaten just because people believe the torture makes the meat taste better.
S. Korea's current leader, President Moon Jae-In, has compassion for animals and has even adopted a dog rescued from the meat trade, named Tory. Furthermore, activists throughout S. Korea are calling for an end to dog and cat meat, which is not only horrifically cruel, but tarnishes their international reputation. Most S. Koreans are against dog meat, and want the cruelty to end.
Please don't turn away. Speak up against this horrendous cruelty. Visit my 'Stop the Cruelty' page.
Please take a moment to visit Soi Dog website.
They really are making a difference.

Proposed animal cruelty laws threaten the future of ethical dog breeding and ownership, Dogs NSW says
Dogs NSW, the peak body for all purebred dogs in New South Wales, is raising serious concerns over the proposed anti-puppy farm legislation, saying it is threatening the future of ethical dog breeding and ownership.
The proposed Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (Breeding Dogs and Cats) Standards 2017 (under the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Regulation 2012) is meant to control puppy farms, defined by the RSPCA as ‘intensive dog breeding facilities that are operated under inadequate conditions that fail to meet the dogs' behavioural, social and/or physiological needs'1.
But the right to breed, show and love animals is in question, says Brian Crump, spokesperson for Dogs NSW, adding that the proposed regulations also do not address cruelty to animals and fail to adequately address puppy farming on that scale.
“Dogs NSW rejects the proposed changes by the Department of Primary Industries (DPI) to the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (POCTA) as these regulations treat all dog and cat breeders as commercial entities, breeding for profit,” says Mr Crump. “Smaller, purebred hobby breeders will be unable to meet the exhaustive ‘commercial’ requirements proposed in the new Standards. Consequently, the public will have nowhere else to buy a health-tested, purebred puppy. No-one else will be breeding except the big puppy farms!”
Dogs NSW is a globally-recognised peak body that promotes breeding, showing, trialling, obedience and other canine-related activities, and the ownership of temperamentally and physically sound purebred dogs - registered with the Australian
National Kennel Council (ANKC) – in NSW. Credit
Dogs NSW has 10,000 members, also including breeders who supply puppies to NSW Police, Assistance Dogs Australia, Guide Dogs NSW/ACT and other organisations, as well as breed Pets as Therapy dogs and working dogs for the farming/agriculture industry.
Dogs NSW sets high health and welfare standards
Dogs NSW members already abide by a comprehensive and enforceable Code of Ethics that sets far higher and more appropriate standards for the health and welfare of dogs than that outlined in the proposal, says Mr Crump.
Dogs NSW is developing an extensive submission for the DPI by the Dec 22nd deadline. Dogs NSW’s submission controls puppy farming and allows dedicated hobbyists to continue breeding, explains Mr Crump.
Dogs NSW is concerned, however, about the DPI’s handling of stakeholder consultations, as the post-submission process has not been made clear and the discussion paper will not be made public until further notice, he adds.
“We ask the Minister for Primary Industry, Hon. Niall Mark Blair, MLC to ensure a fair process of consultation for all stakeholders,” says Mr Crump.
During a recent interview on 2GB’s The Ray Hadley Morning Show, Mr Blair said the legislation is about “making sure we get it right, have better animal welfare outcomes and not hurt people doing the right thing.”2
Dogs NSW urges members and all dog lovers to contact their local member of Parliament and raise their concerns about the profound impact these Standards will have on the future of purebred dogs in NSW.

New life....ever a miracle!
It is tragic to hear of so
many beautiful dogs being surrendered to local pounds and shelters, some as old
as 17 or as young as a couple of months.
The shelters are overflowing and dogs are being made available at very low prices
to try and clear space for the next influx of poor
souls crying out for a forever home.
Bearing in mind that 'a puppy/dog is for life', could your
family find space and love in its heart for one of the needy dogs?
Always keep your dog's microchip details updated
so that in the event of it being lost or
stolen, there is more chance of it being reunited with its family.

Caveat Emptor - Buyer Beware
When searching for your yorkie, please do your homework carefully, especially before
parting with any money. If you are offered a yorkie that seems too good to be true in dollar terms,
you can bet your life that it is. There are various scams doing the rounds at the moment. For further
information, you are welcome to contact me via my Contact page.
Futher to the above warning, I received a disturbing phone call recently from a lady in Western Australia. She had paid out
a considerable sum of money for a puppy, went to the airport to collect it......and it never arrived. A scam.
Disgusting! How can people do this kind of thing? The lady's children were bitterly disappointed, needless to say.
If anyone trying to buy a puppy is asked to pay by Western Union, be VERY careful.
And our yorkies are not just pretty faces, either....

ChaCha has inspired quite a few yorkies and their
