Background Information

For 19 years I had rehabilitated sick, injured and orphaned indigenous wild animals. I was a licensed Wildlife Rehabilitator for the State of California Fish and Game Department. I gladly gave up vacations etc..to care for my beloved friends. I am an elderly grandmother now, and the wonderful days of caring for wild anmials has long past. In the last several years I have written many poems; many about animals. Recently I decided to write about Australia. Australia is a country that I have always yearned to vist.  I decided to write a poem about it.

My love of poetry stems from my father. Dad would write poetry for the local schools. Dad was afflicted with BiPolar Depression and his way of escape was to write poetry. He wrote a poem that was  to be engraved on his headstone,when he passed.  It read:

Shed no tears

Nor have no fears

For here I lie at rest

No peace of mind

In life I find

So here I find it best. (Glen L. Paulich)

Additional Information

For 24 years I raised and showed Irish Setters. In England, my Show Champion Brandy Royale of Wendover won Best In Show at the largest dog show in Great Britian; #2 all breed in 1978. I showed Irish Setters in the states as well. My late husband was stationed in England for 10 years. During that time, 5 years were dedicated to showing dogs and raising my three sons.
