    Dangers for dogs?

    Hello lovelies. We're looking at trying to move over at some point in 2013. However, one thing that worries me a little is whether my dog will be safe. I can only bring one of them over, so will bring the clingy one as my boy will be content without me and staying with my mum, but I know she would pine horribly and I can't put her through that. Basically I'm a bit worried about things like snakes and cane toads; how do others cope with this? I mean, if I let her out in the garden and she does her Schnauzer thing and is typically nosy, what if she disturbs something and gets hurt? Should I just let her out on lead at night when I can't supervise fully? Would love your input, the one thing worrying me most is this! I want my girlie to be safe.

    Dangers to dogs in Australia

    Me and my partner are really wanting to move to Queensland in the next couple of years, one of my major worries is that my pet Staffordshire Bull Terrier, Brie, might get herself into some teouble with the local insects. Does anyone know how to avoid dogs coming into contact with poisonous wildlife? Or where the best places to live, away from snakes and these types of insects will be. Obviously I realise I cannot get away from these creatures completely, and I myself am not bothered by them, but I cannot help but worry about what will happen to Brie as she is a very curious animal. Thanks! Rach:cute:

    The Dangers of Drink

    In the news this morning:swoon: "A man is lucky to be alive after climbing into a crocodile enclosure at a wildlife park in Broome in the far north of Western Australia last night. Police say the man climbed the fence of the wildlife park and tried to jump on the back of a five-metre male saltwater crocodile after being thrown out of a local tavern for being drunk. Sergeant Roger Haynes says the 36-year-old was bitten on the leg before managing to escape. "For some reason he's made a decision to climb the fence into the crocodile park, where an almost five-metre male crocodile was living," he said. "He appears to have wanted to touch that crocodile and sit on its back, and the crocodile has taken offence to that and bitten him on the right leg. "He's absolutely lucky to be alive, this is a large male saltwater crocodile, who aren't renowned for letting people escape once they've got hold of them." The owner of the park, environmentalist Malcolm Douglas, says the crocodile named Fatso is one of his largest reptiles and could crush a man in one bite. But he says last night's cooler weather made Fatso more lethargic than usual. "Once the temperature drops down their reflexes slow down because they are cold-blooded," he said. "The fact that it was a cool night is probably what saved his life." The man is undergoing surgery for severe lacerations to his leg at the Broome Regional Hospital. Police say Mr Douglas does not want to press charges."

    Dangers of the 457 visa

    Hi, I just wanted to write a small post and maybe let some people know what can sometimes happen when coming over on a 457 visa. We have been on one for a little over 2 years and are only (fingers crossed) about to put in for our perm visa. We have been treated extremely unfair by my husbands employer. He have my hubby a huge paycut and said we had to agree else he wouldn't do a perm visa. They are abusive to him at work and for 2 years he has put up with it, so we can get PR. It's extremely stressful and it has mentally and physically taken its toll on both of us. I was diagnosed with epilepsy last Nov and I know the stress of this has made my condition worse. Our sponsor is constantly threatning us. It is not a nice situation to be in. My advice to anyone would be: If there is anyway you can avoid this visa. DO SO AT ALL COSTS. It's not worth the emotional upset it can cause if you get an unscrupulous employer. I understand for some it's the only way, which it was in our case, but honestly if I knew now the upset and problems we would have had, I would not have come. We love Australia and that reason alone has made us keep plodding on. We are thank God nearly there, but it has been a hard road, and one I would never encourage anyone to take if it can be avoided. We now have an immigration lawyer on standy who will be suing my husbands company once we have PR, to help us recover all the lost earnings. Living in OZ is wonderful, but the 457 can be a risly venture. I think it needs major changes made to it, to make it not so risky. On an upnote, we love it here and feel this is our home. Good luck to anyone on the move over :-)
  5. We are in the process of getting the dogs sorted for their big adventure, and wondered if any one can give me honest answers as to the dangers they may face, once arriving in S/A, (snakes, spiders, heat etc). The heat doesn't seem a problem for them as they are sun worshippers! But the youngest one is very nosey, poking around!! We couldn't bare any thing happening to them once we arrive! The kids would be heart broken either way, If we left them behind in the uk or something bad happens once There, We are looking at living in rural property if this helps,
