First and foremost, I need to thank @melissahickey18 for allowing me to steal her guns and claim them as my own for this photo [ok she didn't give me permission, and I've kind of been stalking her since meeting her a few weeks ago because I'm totes in love with her... but we will let that slide for now]. Secondly, my girl @abbgilmore kicked off her AFL career tonight and I'm TOTALLY JEALOUS. Despite my body not being QUITE READY [aka: no where near ready] to take on the demands of playing footy, I'm genuinely starting to consider having a kick. I've had two teams approach me to play... something that actually makes me LOL because I never ever thought it's something I'd do and that clubs would actually WANT me to play, BUT something that makes me a teeny bit excited too? Eeeeek. Do I, or don't I? My dad will be cheering, my hubby is pumped at the idea, my physio just probably dropped dead, my manager is probably going into cardiac arrest - and I'm kind of somewhere in between them all 😂 Huge credit to the @aflwomens for inspiring not only young girls around our country - but middle-aged-torn-fanny mumma's like myself - to give the game a go.

Have you adopted a ‘bully’ type breed? You may remember Lucy, the Bull Arab cross who was badly beaten and left for dead. Well, despite all of her negative experiences in life, she surely is the positive light! This is from her mum Debbie…
“Our girl is perfect and she is a Bull Arab. We first saw our girl on the TV, she had been beaten and dumped in the bush like rubbish. Beaten so badly they didn't think she'd survive the night. All I could do was cry and it was that very moment that we decided she would be the perfect girl for our family.”
“Our boy Max is a Catahoula cross, he was adopted from Wacol and this is where the three of us first met Lucy. We wished so hard that Lucy would choose us to be her forever family. Lucy and Max played as if they had known each other for ever, she nibbled our skin and bounced around happily, from that moment we knew she has chosen her new family.”
“Lucy was around 10 months old when we adopted her, she had a lot of scars and little vision in one eye but she was perfect in every way.”
“Our girl is a Bull Arab, she had been abused by a human, she had been through so much and had no reason to trust humans again. She is gentle, she is trusting, she has never shown any signs of aggression to anyone at all. Lucy is perfect in every way and she is one of the most beautiful family members that we could ask for.”
“We adopted an abused 10 months old Bull Arab that means everything to our family and I would protect her with my life. There is no need to adopt a puppy, older dogs are already trained and will show you unconditional love. Lucy is such a gorgeous, well mannered, funny family member who gets on well with everyone she meets and she is a Bull Arab.”
