Female, dob 9/6/16 Kelpie
Misty is a delightful purebred Kelpie Puppy. She has a lovely temperament, gets on well with
other dogs and horses, is house trained and walks well on leash once the excitement wears
off. Misty is quite well behaved for a young dog but will need a little more training. She is a
very energetic girl so would need a home with an active family or individual and she would
especially love a home with another dog so they can play all day. O982122

Judie and Mark Winter, owners of
Highlander Combined Services in
Berridale, are hosting their first Camo
Day on Friday March 3.
Two years ago, Judy and Mark’s family
suffered a terrible tragedy. Judy’s niece
lost her 10-year-old son, Cooper, in a
Following the passing of her son,
Talia found that there were no existing
Australian charity organisations to
support families after the accidental
death of a child. They did not know who
to turn to, and without the support of
their local community in Port Stephens,
they couldn’t have made it through that
In an effort to take something positive
from their experience,
Talia has created a
organisation called the
With hundreds of
Australian children killed
each year in accidents,
the effect on their
families is devastating.
A key objective of The
MindStorm Foundation is
to empower children and
their families by providing
designed to strengthen
the family unit. These
would not only provide
counselling but also
guide children through
resilience and grief.
Camo Day is The MindStorm
Foundation’s annual event, held on
Cooper’s birthday. It involves people
getting together wearing camouflage
clothing, which was Cooper’s favourite
colour. The camouflage also represents
action, adventure and kids stepping out
of their comfort zone. It also represents
how grieving children may feel after
the loss of a sibling or friend, often
camouflaging their feelings.
The first Camo Day was held in 2015
by Cooper’s classmates. The children,
parents and staff at Cooper’s school
raised money to help financially support
the family during that difficult. Being
self-employed, Talia and her husband
weren’t able to take time off from work
and because the death was accidental,
they were unable to use their income
Wanting to provide help to other
families in need, Camo Day is a way of
raising money. Whether it be a gold
donation from students at your local
school, a barbecue or raffle, anyone can
Judie and Mark will be hosting a
barbecue at their shopfront in Berridale
from 11.30am, so come along in your
camouflage gear and support The
MindStorm Foundation. Funds will go
towards specific programs, events and
family camps so that grieving siblings can
enjoy the things they love.
Judie and Mark Winter.
