Pet’s Corner - October 2017 Image

By Shantelle-Ann Marquis

Meg Cai, 29, is a Melbourne resident and self-employed dog cake baker at her pet bakery.

She is also the proud owner of Cookie, a gentle Yorkie cross and foster owner of Jasmine, an energetic Huntaway cross.

Meg volunteers at an animal shelter, where injured and sick dogs are fostered by individuals in their own homes.

For the last month, she has been helping Jasmine recover from an injury. But once fully recovered, Jasmine will be adopted from the shelter and Meg will most likely foster another dog.

“Jasmine had a knee problem earlier and so they’ve just done a surgery on her. That’s why her leg is missing some hair, the vet shaved it to do the surgery,” Meg explained.

Bringing the dogs together was easy, as Cookie has a very calm nature and does not care about other dogs.

“Jasmine is really cute and loves to play with everyone and other dogs. Cookie is old enough and she is not excited anymore,” Meg said.

Meg is originally from Canada, but when she migrated to Australia, she couldn’t leave Cookie behind and so she flew her down too.”

“Cookie is my dog. I’ve had Cookie for more than four years but she’s almost seven. She is also a dog I have rescued,” Meg said.

Meg joked that Cookie was not like other dogs but more of a cat because her carefree attitude and personality.

“Cookie just likes to sit by herself under the sun. She just wants to lie down and do nothing,” Meg laughed.

The playful dogs are usually walked twice a day, either around Docklands or in a nearby park.

“I live nearby so I like coming to Docklands because there’s a pretty good view here. I like to take the dogs for walks but it just depends on what I am doing or the weather,” Meg said.

Meg treats her dogs as members of the family and enjoys spending as much time as she can with them.

“I love everything about my dogs. We cuddle together, we sit together, we watch TV together, we play games together and we play fetch,” Meg said.
