A power of the press musing:
On Friday 13th June The Daily Examiner ran a story about a three-legged female three year old Staffy-cross named Missy who had run off after being hit by a car in South Grafton. A week later Missy was recognised by an Examiner reader and reunited with her owner. A happy ending all round.

A fly away home musing:
Diesel the Northern Giant Petrel rescued on Wooli beach at the end of May, buddied with another petrel by the Australian Seabird Rescue (Ballina), has been released back into the wild.
Congratulations to rescuers Erin Brady and Kasia Stack for alerting Clarence Valley Wires to Diesel's plight.
