Welcome to Victoria James
We featured this pic of her in our Newsletter for December ! Wish the best for this little doggie on the Facebook post for this update. We put Bushka up for adoption just yesterday! He has just complete a photo shoot for the Herald Sun! Not sure he will make the paper but you never know!
From a Facebook update we posted after a a Herald Sun photographer came around. Wow, a couple of days later and Freddie really did appear in the Herald Sun. It's a gorgeous photo! Robin is an older Albino Chihuahua Cross who craves a soft bed and good food! With his forever loving family he now enjoys walks and the dulcet tones of a Ukulele in the park. This Angel is no pirate. Here is Angel on her little holiday with Sue and Jess, looking just a wee bit spoilt!
See a couple more photos of Angel in the Facebook post. We took off Angel's coat and put her outside thinking she just might like some warm sunshine. From this Facebook post with Angel. We welcome our darling little Freddie in to our home. Freddie is seven weeks old.
He is eating and drinking. This morning we gave him a little toy and he has been playing with it. Freddie has some brain damage no one knows why or how but he is such a happy little Vegemite that we intend that he should have a chance.
Say hello to Freddie on the Facebook post for this pic! Gerrie is pregnant at Chihuahua Rescue Victoria headquarters, and is likely to give birth in the next couple of days. Just after this photo I put down some kibble in her food bowl. Wish I had the video going! She tried to get up and was rocking around on her back, legs in the air. She looked like a beetle who can't roll over on to her feet!
Yes, I stopped laughing and helped her up! Wish Gerri the best on the Facebook post for this photo! Susie is now ready for a loving home for her final years. She is microchipped and her records say she is ten years old, but she could be older as she was a puppy farm girl and has always been having puppies!
She had mammary milk tumours removed when she was desexed last week, and all her teeth were taken out. Has a fantastically strong heart! She is fine with the other dogs and is a darling little dog considering her past! She has been fully immunised and her microchip number is We got a beaut donation from Wodonga Dog Rescue.

Dale, the most wonderful, obedient little dog. In fact a dream dog to live with! Has just been adopted and left our care to try out his new home. Good luck little darling, we will miss you. This is what we wrote about Dale when we put him up for adoption.
He is quiet and toilet trained. He is fine with people but not suited for children under 10 years. Is Ok with the other little dogs here. However our vet thinks he looks more like a Beagle cross Jack Russel Terrier - and we agree! This little man loves his daily walks and needs an active person happy to do 2 to 5 KMs per day!

Natural accountability to elevated norms takes place as individuals can sense that everyone is changing. Your Team Can Accomplish Anything. The following are the notes that I took while reading and what I found to be the most important parts of the book.
It's definitely worth a read and the highlight for me were the stories about the exploration of the Grand Canyon by John Wesley Powell and his team. I also enjoyed a number of the studies regarding what makes a dysfunctional and underperforming team. There are two primary choices in life, to accept conditions as they exist or accept the responsibility for changing them.
Lacking a clear direction on strategy and values leading to conflicting priorities 2. The top-down leadership style by the leader which stops honest discussions about problems 4. Employees fear telling the senior team that obstacles to the organization's effectiveness The seasons of a dying team: The inability to collectively sustain a prioritized focus as a team 2. Disablement or near paralysis due to overwhelming workload due to circumstances and exceedingly high expectations in performance 3.
When it comes to achieving the business imperative, what matters most is the strategy is accomplishing the human imperative. The three mind factors are: Well organized, well written, and very succinct. Practical concepts on how to build a truly collaborative, highly functional, and effective team. Unlike most corporate leadership and team building books that delve needlessly and endlessly into intangible and vague concepts, Do Big Things cuts to the chase, speaks in plain language and easy to understand terms, and defines practical implementation.
In many ways, this book's concepts remind me of the real-world skills used in the military to achieve true mission effectiveness and team cohesion. This book should be on the desk of every corporate manager, from entry level to senior executive. I'm amazed at this book. Just when it looked like there was no clear path to address the demanding needs of teams in , Do Big Things appears.
The needs of multinational teams today have changed dramatically from just five years ago. But the leadership and team gurus and authors haven't caught up I promise you, when you fully apply the concepts and tools in this book, your teams will double their results. Do Big Things is one of the best books I have read in a long time. Concise, inspiring, and practical - it is a must-read for anyone who works in teams and let's face it that is all of us.
Craig, Angela, and Victoria are expert story-tellers and weave together their experiences in the field with a practical framework for enabling teams To Do Big Things. Whether you are joining a new team, taking on a new project or initiative, or looking to re-energize your existing team with a sense of their ability to do big things - this book is for you!
