Travel Mat


Made something a little special for Odie Sanchez today. 
Odie hates sitting on the ground unless he has something comfy under his fluffy butt. 

This little mat rolls up so you can take it anywhere. It’s also rad for when you don’t want dog hair on your car seat cover. 

Get one for your pooch for $20.




Sausage Scarf

adventures of S&S, SHOP

Somebody tell the weatherman it’s Autumn already.. While on the Gold Coast it’s still a balmy 30 degrees each day we are hoping that one day soon it will be time to pull out the winter woollies. 

The S&S ‘woof pack’ are testing the Sausage Scarf tonight and I think they like it! 

Here’s our newest recruit Petal Sausage making her modelling debut. 

What do you think?

There will be a limited release of these bad boys in the coming weeks. Knitted with love locally.

We would love to know what you think. Leave a comment below. 

Introducing Petal

They say three’s a crowd so is four a party?

It was the 24th of June, just your average day at AWLQ when one of the rehoming attendants at the Gold Coast centre grabbed and ushered me in the rehoming pens. “You have to see this Dachshund” said Lani. It’s common knowledge that i’m a sucker for a sausage but was completely awe struck when I met Petal.

Petal was surrendered as she suffered severe separation anxiety and her owners worked a lot. They gave her up in the hope she would find a home with other pets to keep her company.

Is the Gold Coast Fur Real?

Mumma Lilah

I spent some time with Mumma Lilah the Labrador and her puppies today. Lilah gave birth late last week after being abandoned by her owners and has been through quite a lot while having to protect and keep her babies safe. Despite her hectic ordeal she is such a sweet girl and loves attention. We wanted to find her a foster home that was quiet and relaxing so she can care for her babies in peace. Check out our video below.

Spring has definitely sprung and we are beginining to see a high number of mummys and babies – If you have a pet that isn’t desexed please don’t add to the stress of shelters. Desex your pet!

NBN NEWS helps promote foster puppies

Today I caught up with NBN news to talk about the importance of desexing your pet. As the weather heats up shelters are inundated with with litters of kittens and puppies from unplanned pregnancies.
Australia has one of the highest rates of pet ownership in the world. Four out of five Australians have owned a pet and almost two-thirds of Australian households currently own pets. Despite these figures, around 23 cats and dogs die every hour of every day in pounds and shelters nationwide. Due to the ongoing problem of pet overpopulation, these healthy, loving animals are being killed because there are not enough homes available. Desexing helps put a stop to this statistic.


Keeping warm with Hans Sausage

Hans here,

You know as the weather cools down I like to make little burrows in mums bed and snooze the day away. But today I got dragged to the office to keep the breadwinner company so I insisted on wearing something fabulous!

I scored this beauty from the AWLQ Op Shop today and boy does it keep me toasty.. So to all those chilly dogs out there I say visit an op shop and keep your wiener warm! There are so many bargains to be found!

Love and licks

When I met Victoria at the AWLQ Ipswich Rehoming Centre she was curled into a ball, shaking and matted.
Her toenails were so long they had curled around her foot, her fur stained green from going to the toilet and not being cleaned. She had flea nests near her mouth that were impossible to scratch because her fur had grown and twisted which pulled her skin as she scratched.
She had been left and neglected for we will never know how long… When we bathed and began to clip her she laid in our laps letting out big sighs. Little by little though she came back to life. When the last knot had been removed she took her first pain free steps.
