Saying Goodbye to Stella

Seeing Stella off to her new home on Saturday was very hard. As much as I was confident her new home was a good one and that I’d found her a really suitable place, I really didn’t want to see her go. Stella was one of those dogs who just make their place in your […]


Round Up

Things have been a bit hectic lately – so apologies for no new posts for a while! So just to catch-up with things at SAFAR HQ. Stella and Monty were desexed on Tuesday (sorry about Cup Day kids!). Stella has taken a bit of time to recover from her surgery, but looks much happier now […]

A cool spring morning and a game with friends.

I'm wet and I'm stinky

Four Weeks of Stella

Stella has been with Agreeable Friends for a whole month now! Think about what happens when you take one very scared, very anxious young blue heeler and give her lots of exercise, friends to play with, a calm routine and a consistent human. What you get is a very cheeky, mischievous, teenage working dog. So […]


Stella Day Twenty-five

So, Stella has been with me for over three weeks now and she’s such a happy, loving, well-behaved, cheeky, dog social, cat safe companion. She’s still very timid in strange situations, but at home she’s really confident. Stella’s social skills with other dogs are excellent and she just loves a game. She’ll play chasy with […]

Rolling, rolling, rolling.

I"m coming!

Stella Day Eighteen

There was an early frost this morning, which always seems to give the dogs an extra burst of energy. Stella and Marcus played chasey around the paddock until they wore themselves out. Now she’s a happy dog, Stella is showing off her puppy side – she’s still a young dog and she just loves to […]


Stella Day Seventeen

Stella must have been an archeologist in her past life, she’s got a real talent for digging up old bones; the older the better apparently. She’s loving having canine company and plays happily with the other dogs – she’s actually got really nice dog-to-dog manners and she’s very even tempered, so even when the play […]

Nothing like a pile-on!

Stella and the bone

Stella Day Sixteen

I think Stella and Marcus were tired after their nearly-all-day romp yesterday and today’s morning walk was a quiet affair. Stella found herself a very big, very old bone which the foxes must have dragged into the paddock, and settled down for a good chew. Later on it was sun/rain/hail, rinse/lather/repeat, so Stella got a […]


Stella’s Day Fifteen

Stella just loves other dogs – she’s super playful and loves, loves, loves a game of chasy or a wrestle. Turns out she’s very dog social and gets on with pretty much everyone. She and Marcus are currently sound asleep, having played themselves to a standstill this afternoon.  Now that she’s happier and more confident […]

Time for a rest.

You called me?

Two weeks of Stella

Day 14 for Stella, the official end of her quarantine period with us.  Looking back at the two weeks she’s been with SAFAR its hard to believe she’s the same dog I picked up from Helen in Bendigo late Friday night two weeks ago. That dog was terrified of me, snapped at me when I […]
