Jack is not a dangerous dog!

Hi My dog Jack is a lovely big boofhead who has stood in front of snakes and barked and chased off foxes to save chickens. He is not a big scarey aggressive dog who attacks people. He loves children. He loves the old neighbours next door. From being a baby I have made him take treats from my mouth so he learned early on to be gentle taking treats, as I didn't want his big mouth snatching treats from little hands. Note if he was a big bitey dog he would try attack/ bite snakes or foxes - but his

Allow WA Citizens To Return Home From Interstate

We live in strange times. We live in a time where our television, our mobiles and laptops are littered with news of a potentially deadly virus, how we've officially entered a recession, and how the future is about as bright as Donald Trump speaking about climate change. However, in my opinion, even stranger still is the fact that one 'Australian' State is denying some of it's own residents entry. Whether to be with family, loved ones, hell it could be to see their dog for all I care. The reason
