|Princess Maddison - The face of downtown doggy
Maddy was a gorgeous puppy....
||Ruby Donnelly makeover
Donnelly loves her baby Ruby and why wouldn't she! What a gorgeous face
Katie says.."Ruby is 5 months old on the
26th of June (she was born on Australia Day).
She is a purebred chihuahua, but she's
not very tiny. She's a bit over 2 kg and will probably get a bit bigger.
Her mum (Pheobe) was quite big but her Dad (Cloud) was tiny with a
beautiful caramel and cream long coat. He was a show dog but fell off
the podium and lost some teeth, so the owner sold him to my breeder and
he has become her stud dog.
sleeps on our bed most nights and cuddles against our tummy or back, or
curls up against my arm with her head on my shoulder. She's better than a
teddy bear and loves to wake us up with kisses.
We live in Port Headland in North-West WA, so
the weather here is very hot; however, when we started getting "winter"
weather, we noticed that Ruby would shiver (especially in the mornings) and
didn't like being outside at all and would run back inside after we put her
out to go to the toilet. She is an inside dog, but she usually loves to
explore, play and sun herself outside, so I realised that I would have to
get her something to keep her warm. She doesn't have much hair at all on her
tummy and chest, so I want something to keep her a bit warm, that's not too
thick and structured, but soft and comfortable that she can wear inside and
out, that allows her room to move (because she's very active), that I can
easily wash - basically something practical, but a bit cute too! "
doggies loved the bed. At first they sniffed it a lot, but
then they hopped in and played. I cant get them out of it now.
They were snuggled up in it this morning because it was so cold.
Your right it is huge, but they love rolling around and jumping in
it so I think it's the right size for them.
heaps for your help! Biunca
GUYS ARE REAL CUTE!
Jasper... A REAL DOG ABOUT TOWN!
He is a 1 year old Maltese who
lives in Brisbane, with his mum, Amanda.
"Since the day I got Jasper he has been the best companion I could ask
for. Apart from being the cutest dog I have ever seen, he has such a
wonderful personality. He is quite happy to snuggle with me when I take a
nap, but loves to play with his toys at other times. This little guy will
play from morning to night! He has so much energy it is quite amazing.
He is also intelligent and is doing advanced
obedience classes at the moment, with the aim of doing Flyball to satisfy
his ball obsession.
Jasper lives with 3 other dogs and definitely
lives up to the name 'Prince' on his downtown doggy shirt. Even though he
is the smallest dog in the household he is the boss and is so spoilt .
Jasper is definitely a fashionable dog and will willingly wear bows in his
hair and the designer shirts he has. I think he knows how good he looks.
I can't imagine my life without this little guy, he is definitely my best
Misty is wearing her princess t-shirt and she
looks so gorgeous. Sarah says, "Our little princess Misty doesn't like
having her photo taken. "
We were very impressed with Misty (even with
her eyes closed) and loved
to see her strutting her stuff in her downtown doggy gear.
She is really quite a character.
She takes Canine couture to a whole new sophisticated level!
Simba's mum Barbara says...Simba
is now 7 months old, full of energy and cuteness. He is very bright and so
needs all the stimulation we can give him. He's extremely good in his Dog
Obedience class and our aim is to eventually teach
him Fly Ball since running and fetching is already a game he loves. We
have bells attached to our front door and he rings these (loudly!!!) when
he wants to go outside.
Here Simba is showing off his new downtown
doggy donut bed! Simba is bred by Z toy poodles. If you are thinking of
buying a toy poodle go to this website and see the champions they have
Downtown Doggy was so impressed with Ztoys we
are waiting for a teacup poodle to be the new face of Downtown Doggy. We
will keep you posted!
Mr Bean and Pixie

jackets.These guys are so cute! Mr Bean is 2 years and Pixie is 1year old.
When I spotted the cutest puppy
in the litter at the Saturday market we had had no intention
of adding to the canine population resident in our rainforest retreat. He was
only 4 weeks old but having to be being sold as his human family were camping
out and the pups were in danger from hawks. His mum was a Chihuahua/fox terrier
cross and his dad a mini foxie. He was born on born on Anzac Day so a true
At the time we still had Susie
dog - a Chihuahua/foxie cross, aged 14 years and starting
show her age. Her sister Penny had died in
December 1998 and we had decided not to have another
dog once Susie died. Looking at the litter of four darling pups the male pup
clamoured to get into our arms. The pleading puppy eyes sent a message of
"please take me home" and we fell in love with the little fluff ball. Mr. Beau
Bean had won our hearts and landed in doggy paradise.
antics have been a boon as he has given us many a laugh. Susie dog also
enjoyed him and had a lot more life in her and played with him when she felt
like getting active. She died aged 15 in her sleep.
at six months almost went to doggy heaven! Just a few days after having his
testicles summarily removed and while still recovering and feeling sore and
sorry a nine and a half
attacked him. The snake bit him on the left side and coiled around him so only
tail and nose were
visible. Luckily this occurred on the back verandah under a light.
Hearing a petrified scream we all ran outside. I grabbed the snake's head and
we all uncoiled the snake body off Mr.
Bean. The python would
not let go so we had to pry the teeth apart. The teeth are very sharp and
reversed to lock on like fishhooks. We then took a bleeding hysterical dog
inside and treated his wounds and shock. Luckily he has lived to tell the tale
though he was a nervous pooch for many months.
"Danny" is so gorgeous
Brenda Mogensen bought her baby "Danny", a
little Pet Pocket to carry him around.
"When Danny Boy first saw the
bag he played around with it and dragged it all over the place having
heaps of fun.
I let him do that for a while
to get him use to it. Then I enticed him with his favourite dried food and
placed it inside the bag that I left on the floor spreading the opening
for him to get in. Of course he went straight in and stayed in finishing
his favourite food. Everytime I placed a bit of food in the bag I said, "walkies".
What I do now is just put the bag on the floor and say "walkies" and in
he goes....still put food in until he get used to me saying "walkies". We
go for walks and Danny has no trouble with people. In fact he wants to
jump out to greet them. I have to watch him carefully as he is very quick.
I use the clasp and lock that on his collar. Danny is a
french word meaning"
little story about the Papillon.......Papillon is a French name which
means 'butterfly'. They got the name because of their interesting,
beautiful butterfly-like ears which stand straight up like the
widespread wings of a butterfly. Their early ancestors were owned by
famous people like Marie Antoinette and Madame de Pompadour. Some of Papillon
ancestors were very good ratters, but they prefer to be a house pet and
a lap dog. They have a fine silky coat comes in white with various
colored markings and it is very easy to maintain. An ideal pet for those
who do not have the time or energy to go on long walks or jog with their
dog. They get enough exercise indoors. When fully grown they grown
between 9 - 11 inches tall.
Danny loves the pouch and going for afternoon walks
and everyone was very impressed!
baby "Max" is a fantastic Shih Tzu. This guy looks
like a little doll. He is so cute. Tosca and Squirt give him the thumbs up!
Max is a 12 week old Shih Tzu and an absolute
dynamo. He was born from Australian champion parents and is sure to follow
in their pawprints, although he thinks he may well be suited to something
more befitting, in the entertainment industry. Perhaps with his good looks
and charm he could be a star of stage and screen.
He's a real ham and likes nothing more than
to be centre stage. He is adored by everyone that he meets and at the
moment is learning how to "high 5" his fans (he can't sign autographs
He is just like a little pocket rocket (thankfully
he tires quickly)" says Joanne. "He loves his new pocket and sits very quietly
taking in all the sights. We were at a horseshow all weekend so I think he was
rather pleased to be out of the way of those nasty hooves! And I was happy not
to have to worry about him getting squashed." LOL
Bella transformed into a Downtown Doggy, complete
with a couture wardrobe!
Sorry about the images, we will
try and bring you some better ones when her mum takes them. She is really tiny
and hard to fit, but still gorgeous.
This is Bella, a pure breed miniature foxy. She
was born on 20th of April 2004 in Warracknbeal. Her breeder is Lyle Cook. She
is 1kg in weight and is growing fast. Her mother Racheal is quite big so she
may grow a lot ( hopefully not).
She has the most loving nature and loves lots and
lots of kisses. She loves the camera and loves dressing up. She has a brother
Reilly which is a tabby cat. She loves chasing him around the house and even
though he is 3 times her size that doesn't matter she will still stand her
The first few nights she slept in my bed and
cuddled up to me. But I got woken up to her because she had fallen out of bed
and couldn't get back up!
I built a little stool so that Bella could get up
on the couch and she loves it! She gets up there all the time and watches TV
with me! She really loves her new clothes, and looks adorable. Says Kate.
