    Carbon Monoxide... The Silent Killer - Ken Wilson

    Carbon Monoxide... The Silent Killer - Ken Wilson

    Are you one of the many families, couples and singles currently enjoying a more mobile lifestyle?

    Congratulations – we love it it too – and like you we’re constantly learning – for example do you have a carbon monoxide alarm?

    We do – but didn’t realise how this invisible, odourless gas can have a delayed impact on a person causing them to crash after falling asleep while driving.

    The brave couple who survived the ordeal wanted their tale told in the hopes others would avoid making the same mistake.

    Cardwell - FNQ's Best Kept Secret!... Why? - with Colin Oke

    Cardwell - FNQ's Best Kept Secret!... Why? - with Colin Oke

    Back in Feb. 2011 a Category 5 cyclone called Yasi all but demolished the beautiful town of Cardwell in far north QLD - gateway to Hinchinbrook Island.

    It's taken many years to get back to almost resembling its former self but there's still more to be done. We'll have a closer look soon at some of the issues this small community faces - meantime, we had a great couple of nights at the Cardwell Caravan Park and chatted with owner Colin Oke to find out why he loves the place so much! :-)

    Dealing With Heat Affected Dogs - Dr Karyn Wesselingh

    Dealing With Heat Affected Dogs - Dr Karyn Wesselingh

    While the weather this year has been, cold then wet then hot again... whether you're travelling or not, heat is a big factor in the health of our pets - in this case dogs! And we were reminded off that recently sitting in the shade under a tree having coffee with friends the other day when Kaye realised she had copped a nasty sunburn!

    Lesson learned – the hard way – That protective shade of the tree moved!! it’s also a timely reminder for us and other pet owners to plan how to provide adequate shelter, water and cooling mats or jackets to protect our pets from heat stress or the even worse condition Heat Stroke.

    To help us and help you - we called on a friend who’s treated many pets for heat stress to give us her best advice on what to do if you suspect your best friend is heat affected - Dr Karyn Wesselingh from the Animal Referral Hospital in Baulkham Hills Sydney

    Finding A Groomer 'On The Road' - Todd Clark

    Finding A Groomer 'On The Road' - Todd Clark

    Ok... you've decided to get up and go see Australia with or without the kids... but the 'most important' child can't be ignored right? The family dog. So many people are travelling with pets these days - dogs in particular - but the services like vets & groomers we're used to at home are not always easily available on the road. What to do? - Especially if you have a longer haired dog like us - like Chica.... a Toy Poodle.

    Now there are plenty of other longer haired breeds that need regular grooming like Dachies etc but so too do short haired breeds like Staffies or Whippets etc...

    We asked long time friend and professional dog groomer Todd Clark from Morriset Dog Grooming how can travellers find a groomer they can 'trust'?
