Daphne Beyer-James, Superdogel’s muse

Welcome to the first issue of Superdogel Australia, and please make welcome the first cover dog and the inspiration behind the site, my own fur-baby, Daphne Beyer-James.

I fell in love with her the moment I saw her. She was about a year old when I got her from the pound. She had been through a lot, you could tell, but it wasn’t long before she managed to shake off the horrors of her past and learn to trust again.

(WP Body) Daphne on couchIt was during that very first winter with her, I took a photo of her after having just risen from her sleep. Standing high above her couch, she looked so majestic in the light, her duvet flowing around her like a gown. She looked like she had stepped onto a cover of a high-fashion, glamour mag. But it was something else about that photo that hit me. Not only did I think she looked beautiful, but I realised that all dogs are beautiful, given the chance to evolve.

That’s when an idea hit me – Doggie Glam! I was going to create a website that instead of showcasing models and fashion, I could showcase gorgeous dogs and dog stuff.

So, with Daphne as an inspiration, I present to you my website, Superdogel Australia. Not only will it showcase gorgeous dogs, but my team and I will bring to you the best products and services in Australia, professional advice from vets and trainers, competitions where you can     win some really great stuff, and news around Australia and overseas.

Also, if you have any ideas, comments or suggestions, then please contact us here. We would love to hear from you.

In the meantime, I hope you have a great time with us.

Thanks for reading,

Chris James.

      Hi Amber,
      Thanks for your comments and glad you like the site. We definitely will be featuring all sorts of gorgeous dogs. I don’t know if you have joined the Facebook group but if you haven’t, go to ‘Superdogel Australia Magazine’ and like us. We will be posting there when we are looking for dogels, as well when we have comps to raise money to keep the site going, and for rescue groups and shelters we will be working with. Disco is such a great name. Send a pic of Disco to us if you like so we can keep on our records for consideration for the future.
      Thanks Amber.
      Chris – Editor Superdogel Australia.
