All of the puppies (adults, but always puppies in our eyes), get along famously.

She finds great satisfaction helping animals that are in need of medical care. She aims to treat every animal as her own when am nursing them at the clinic. She wants everyone to know that your pets will be talked to and patted at every opportunity and possibly given snuggles (if they are up for it!).


  

Ellie

Ellie is a Border Collie Cross owned by Dr Kylie. She is very food orientated, and is the reason the food bin is locked down! She is very smart and loves her clicker training. She enjoys showing off her tricks at Kindy talks with Kylie, and really, to anyone that is holding food.


Jimmy

Jimmy is a Cattle Dog owned by Dr Kylie. He loves attention of any sort, and will happily sit with/on you and hold hands for hours!


Tipsy

Tipsy is a 3-legged amputee owned by Dr Kylie. She was rescued as a kitten. Tipsy loves to put herself all on display and pancake upside down! She may be quiet, but she is always close by Kylie and the kids! She loves running around with her soulmate, Turvy.


Turvy

Master Turvy is owned by Dr Kylie, and proudly takes the position of problem child in the fur-family! Kylie fostered Turvy for a long weekend, and he never left! He craves attention so much he loses his voice crying/looking for Kylie! Turvy has had a congenital diaphragmatic hernia repaired by Dr Erica, and pulled through like a trooper! He shares his day sleeping on all the kids beds, but loves to sleep on Kylie's chest the most. His loud purr keeps her awake. He loves to keep Tipsy on her toes but wouldn't be without his playmate.


Hamish

Hamish is a Domestic Short Hair that Dr Erica adopted as a 10-week-old kitten from an abandoned litter — she hadn't even had her first shift when she decided to take him! He is very vocal and loves to chat and snuggle. Hamish is too clever for his own good — he has learned to open doors if they have handles! He is the resident hunter/sock thief, but sometimes mixes it up with small toys too.

Hamish is the cheeky older brother to Rory -- he kicks him off the best beds and steals his food, but does love him. Dr Erica frequently finds them snuggling together, playing together and grooming each other.


Rory

Dr Erica adopted Rory when he was 8 week olds, from another abandoned litter! He isn't much of a cuddler unless it's cold, but loves to slink around your legs and enjoys pats. He smooches very aggressively when it's dinner time!

Rory takes his yoga very seriously -- he stretches multiple times a day, he's the stretchiest cat Dr Erica has ever seen! Sometimes he will put his front feet on your slippers, or the egg-carton-toy on the floor, then stretch forwards, and he will go sliding down the hallway! (Known as the Stretchy-Slides in our house)

Rory also enjoys a good chat, especially if you're unloading the dishwasher! The sound of the dishes and cutlery being put away makes for a very intense discussion! (Known as Dishwasher Chats)

Rory is usually the instigator of play time, but he tries to be sneaky about it, he will sit innocently next to Hamish and then will bite Hamish's foot! Then there is a lot of chasing and wrestling; they both love it!


August

August is owned by Nurse Kristy. August was a rescue dog. He has many nicknames including The Lamb, because he thinks he is still 10kgs and love to sit on the couch with mum and dad.


Kimball

Kimball is owned by Nurse Kristy. She is also known as The Cho. She has a big brother and a spotty sister. Spotty and Kimball like playing games early in the morning to wake everyone up........really early!!! 


Lottie

I'm Lottie (The Spot), the latest edition to Nurse Kristy's family. I'm really lucky. I am a rescue dog from way up north. I have a great home now with a big, big brother and cool sister. I like to nibble on their ears and paws.


Rusty

Rusty is owned by Nurse Tiffany, and always wants to play! He could spend his whole day swimming in the pool. He is obsessed with water!


Diesel

Diesel is owned by Nurse Tiffany. He is a Bull Mastiff Cross. He is a gentle giant, who thinks he's a small lap dog. Diesel enjoys lots of cuddles on the lounge. 


Missy

Missy is owned by Nurse Tiffany, and is a Domestic Short Hair. She was a stray kitten brought into the clinic that Tiffany took home for a long weekend, and she never left. Her favourite hobby ..  sleeping!


Sunny

Sunny is an Indian Ringneck Parrot owned by Nurse Madeline. He does anything for attention and loves a head scratch almost as much as he loves stealing your food.


Daria

Daria is a sweet, old girl owned by Nurse Madeline. She is a fancy rat who has been through it all. Daria loves cuddling up in a warm blanket with her favorite snack (peas).


Pebbles

Pebbles is a Labrador cross who is owned by Nurse Madeline. She's a super clever girl who knows a lot of tricks but always steal other dogs toys at the beach. 


Smoosh

Smoosh is owned by Nurse Isabella. She is the Queen of the castle and all of her humans are dirty little rascals (in her eyes). She yells for her food and won't stop until she gets it. And if the bowl is found empty again, she definitely won't let you forget it.
