HEALTH ALERT: Outbreaks of one of the most dangerous dog diseases have occurred across the country. And worst of all, it’s targeting our most vulnerable pets. Here’s all you need to know about Parvovirus and where it’s striking…
Parvovirus attacks the digestive system of dogs and if left untreated, will tragically kill 80% of those dogs that contract it. Signs including extreme lethargy, vomiting and severe, often bloody diarrhoea. Young, unvaccinated puppies are often most at risk with 158 cases currently recorded across the country.
The AVA (Australian Veterinary Association) is advising the current extreme hot spots to be: - Wagga Wagga, NSW - Tamworth, NSW - Mildura, Vic - Armadale, WA - Northampton, WA
If you’re worried, please check your dog’s vaccination status. Proper and current vaccinations are incredibly effective at preventing the virus. Please stay safe out there guys...

Need a bra... I own no bras. I went to Target to buy one, the one I want is $29? Fuck no.. Maybe next week I'm too broke for that. Goes upstairs and proceeds to collect $179 with of shit for the kids without batting an eye lid. There is something very wrong with this bra-less picture 👊🏼 Con
"I sit here at McDonalds, drinking a sprite. Okay, it's my third sprite. And the lady in the corner...waits. She's been here since before I got here. In walks a man with a small boy, maybe 3 years old if that. 'You were supposed to be here an Hour ago.' she says , slightly upset. 'Well I'm here and here he is.' The man turns to walk out the door. She says, 'Hey do you have a couple dollars so I can get a cheeseburger? All I have is enough for his happy meal.' He looks around to see if anyone is watching. 'Screw you, Starve.' He says and walks out the door. She just shakes her head and walks to the counter with the boy. She orders a happy meal for the boy. The teen at the counter tells her her card left a balance of 37 cents. She and the boy walk to her car where she digs and finds the change. She and the boy sit down with the happy meal, and she sets up his food and his tiny drink cup. She asks him if mommy can have a fry, to which he feeds her the one he just took a bite off of.(I kinda chuckled to myself.) I walk to the soda machine and refill my cup, Powerade this time. And the teen from the counter is refiling the napkins. I hand him my debit card. And tell him to give her 2 doubles and a large fry and a large drink on me. I tell him not to tell her its from me. I wrote a note on a napkin with my sharpie I use at work. "Keep your head up and always push forward. You CAN. You WILL. :)" He brings me my debit card. Then walks back to the counter and takes the tray of food to her. He says 'This was bought for you.' 'By who?' 'I'm not supposed to say, but it wasn't me.' He says and walks back to the counter. She reads the note on the napkin as tears start to roll down her cheeks. She fills the drink cup and starts to eat. The child trades her a chicken nugget, for a bite of the burger.(I chuckle again.) After they both finish their meal, they start to leave. They walk passed me sitting here and I smile at the boy and look at her and she whispers "thank you" I whisper back "for what?" She smiles. I wink. I look down at the boy and I say have a good day :) Life is hard. Always be willing to make someones life a little easier. Little things make a big impact. For any single parent stuck in a similar place... Keep your head up and always push forward. You CAN. You WILL."
It's international breast feeding week. Which is just rad. Breasts are beautiful, Babies are beautiful, And nothing beats a baby with a full tummy.
Breast feeding mums deserve all the praise in the world, they are glorious selfless super beings.
And do you know who what other glorious, selfless super beings deserve all the praise in the world?
Formula feeding mums.
I started full time formula feeding the twins at around 5 months and guess what? It's no joy ride either.
In fact, in some ways it's harder then breast feeding. Making milk, cleaning bottles. That's not fun.
But I was able to pass on some work load to Bill and my mum and pretty much anyone who walked into my house and that made the world of difference.
It took me 4 babies to learn that I wasn't getting any medals for making life hard for myself. Boy do I know that now. I owe the majority of my mental health and happiness to my shortcuts.
Formula feeding is not giving up on breastfeeding. Just as much as breastfeeding is not giving up on formula.
There is no right or wrong. There is simply the way of the Queen.
I hope that all the breastfeeding posts make breastfeeding mums feel special, because you are. But I really hope that they don't make formula feeding mums feel any less special. Because we are all pretty fucking special is you ask me.
And anyone who soldiers on through the trials and tribulations of feeding a baby should be celebrated this week and every week.
The secret is that most of the time doing what is best for you and doing what is best for your baby are the exact same thing. 💗👑🙏🏼
“I actually attack the concept of happiness. I don’t mind people being happy – but the idea that everything we do is part of the pursuit of happiness seems to me a really dangerous idea and has led to a contemporary disease in Western society, which is fear of sadness. It’s a really odd thing that we’re now seeing people saying 'write down 3 things that made you happy today before you go to sleep', and 'cheer up' and 'happiness is our birthright' and so on. We’re kind of teaching our kids that happiness is the default position – it’s rubbish. Wholeness is what we ought to be striving for and part of that is sadness, disappointment, frustration, failure; all of those things which make us who we are. Happiness and victory and fulfillment are nice little things that also happen to us, but they don’t teach us much. Everyone says we grow through pain and then as soon as they experience pain they say 'Quick! Move on! Cheer up!'. I’d like just for a year to have a moratorium on the word 'happiness' and to replace it with the word 'wholeness'. Ask yourself 'is this contributing to my wholeness?' and if you’re having a bad day, it is.” – Hugh Mackay
A young woman has learnt the hard way not to disobey her dad, after he used an excavator to DESTROY his daughter's luxury car after he caught it being driven by a boy he did not approve of! Do you think this is a fair punishment? #9Today
"Which leads to this: earlier this week, a woman posted a lengthy diatribe to Facebook calling out a man who had engaged in threatening behaviour on public transport. The woman described him harassing three fellow female passengers, pressing into their personal space and insisting they give him high fives. After intervening, she took a photograph of the man and shared it alongside her Facebook post. It was quickly reposted by numerous people, including myself.
Shortly afterwards, unqualified rebuttals started appearing claiming this man had an intellectual disability. This was soon framed as him being autistic, with numerous people (who were not there) deciding this meant his behaviour was harmless and it was the nasty feminazis who were really at fault. Abusive comments (including the belief that she should have been raped and murdered by Adrian Bayley) were then hurled at the woman who wrote the original post. In deeply unsurprising news, she was also besieged with 'dick pics' - because of course, the best way to prove that gendered harassment of women doesn't exist is to send unsolicited photographs of your penis alongside violent commentary.
Since then, the story has appeared on a handful of particularly vitriolic and paranoid men's rights websites with the spurious claim of autism continually repeated. This is despite the fact none of these sites can actually provide the man's name or indeed testimony from anyone other than untested 'witnesses' (who've done nothing to prove they were there). The Daily Telegraph's Tim Blair eagerly jumped in with a piece, offering up the bulk of his evidence in the form of a link to a fact-free blog post on the pustular website, Age of Shitlords - and yes, that is a name men seeking to be taken seriously are legitimately going by.
And so now, the kinds of men who abhor 'social justice warriors' and fervently defend their right to use words like 'retard' - indeed, the kinds of men who support Donald Trump, a walking clusterfuck of offence who not only admits to sexually assaulting women but is on camera mocking a disabled journalist - are suddenly leaping on the opportunity to discredit women's experiences once again by pretending they suddenly care about the disabled community. Of course, none of them seem able to correctly define autism, with phrases like "mentally handicapped" and "mental illness" being used as catch-alls. But what does that matter when there are bitches to roast for being oversensitive attention seekers?
Facts evidently matter very little. It doesn't matter that the family member I spoke with confirmed this man wasn't on the spectrum. It apparently doesn't matter that he has appeared almost twenty times in the Magistrates Court in the last year. It doesn't matter that he was only targeting women and that a high five forced on us by the strange, erratic men we've not only been told to be wary of but have prior experience in being made uncomfortable by might just feel a bit more threatening than it would to the men who are invariably not targeted by this kind of behaviour regularly."
This is for all the MRA-turn-neurologists who diagnose spectrum placement based on articles in the Daily Mail and literal Internet shitrags. That thing women do, when they post men's photographs online? It isn't revenge porn. It isn't designed to humiliate and dehumanise ordinary blokes in order to get back at them for some perceived slight. It's done because women are sick of dealing with this shit and, at every turn, being told they're overreacting or demonising male behaviour. The only option left to many of us is to engage in the Hollaback method of warning each other to keep an eye out.
And if you don't think the deck is stacked against us, think on this: There was a significant number of men squawking about how Laura should have 'done the right thing' and reported the incident to the authorities. But what happens when we do? Well, here are two examples. A few months ago, I shared a post directly from the Victoria Police page looking for a man suspected of flashing women in a Melbourne park. He was photographed by a female jogger who reported him to the police. Despite the fact even the police considered this legitimate enough to seek further information on, my post was quickly filled with angry men insisting this woman had gone too far. That we couldn't be sure she was telling the truth. That she might be getting revenge on him. And - my favourite - that she was just doing it for attention.
And then there was the share last night. A flight attendant on Alaskan Airlines objected to the rude and sexist way a passenger spoke to her during the safety demonstration. She alerted her colleagues and, presumably, someone with authority in the airline. The passenger was escorted from the plane. A post describing this incident has since been inundated with people - mainly men - blasting her and other women for being too sensitive and not knowing how to 'take a joke'.
And there it is. That sickening feeling again that women are just expected to smile and play nice, to let the boys have their fun and to never ever call them on it or fight back because to do so is to execute the most vile and hateful of misandries.
Get fucked. Leave women alone. Stop trying to get us to play along with your bullshit and stop crying foul when we block your attempts to just keep getting away with it. Own your fucking shit and grow the fuck up.
A warning now about a new smart phone craze sweeping Perth. Pokemon Go is a game targetted at kids, sending them on a virtual-reality treasure hunt. But today Perth police issued a warning amid fears predators will use the game to target victims.
