My Yarloop visit

My Mum Helen and I had a great day at Waroona and Yarloop on Saturday. We chatted to the vet staff (They remembered me from last year and recognised me from my Fireman’s outfit). We had a chat to Robyn about her animals and the bushfire then Helen was interviewed by Michael from the ABC in Bunbury. I hope lots of people who were affected by the bushfire will contact us. We are looking forward to hearing their stories and Mum will take photos of the cute animals.

We talked to Robyn about her animals and the bushfire, then Helen was interviewed by Michael from the ABC in Bunbury. I hope lots of people who were affected by the bushfire will contact us. We are looking forward to hearing their stories and Mum will take photos of the cute animals.

We will head down to Yarloop again on Sunday 26th June but I might need to stay home if Mum is taking photos. I get jealous if other pets get more attention than me! Woofs from KoKo

Bushfire doggies and moggies – Waroona and Yarloop WA- January 2016 Republished

Hi Doggies and Moggies (and Chookies and horses),

My Mum Helen and I are dropping into Waroona tomorrow to leave you some comfy beds, food and toys, for those of you who have lost your homes. I hope some of you get to enjoy our contributions from the Subiaco and Hillary’s dogs. We know you will be feeling tired and anxious so some of us left our Wee-Mails on the blankets to enable you to smell of our concern and warm wishes.

I would also like to invite you to tell your tales on my blog at some point in the future. You can bark about your escape or woof about the sadness of loosing your mates and home. Or maybe you could tell us of your new lives now that homes are being rebuilt.

My Mum is good at translating Wee-mails but we live a bit far away. We might have to come down to visit when things have settled a bit.

My Mum loves taking photos of animals so if you would like to be the centre of attention, please let your humans know.

Bushfire Pets Yarloop area – Pawsome Tales of Escape and Survival

My Mum Helen and I are starting an exciting new project. Here is the Post we put up on the Waroona Vets site:

Expression of Interest request to Yarloop residents and Waroona vet staff. 


My human Mum Helen loves taking doggie photos. She also helps me write my blog about my mates in Subiaco.

We were very sad to hear of all the pets at Yarloop who were caught up in the bushfire last year and of those who had to move to new locations.

Mum and I collected lots of beds, food and toys and dropped them off at Waroona Vet when we heard the news. We hope you found our gifts from Subiaco dog owners helpful.

Mum and I would like to visit Yarloop (or wherever you are now located) to record some tales about how your pets survived and how they have recovered now.

Of course, Helen will take some cute photos. We could maybe have a small exhibition later, and even, if all goes well, – a book!.

As many of you know, I tend to write from my own doggie viewpoint. The tales you discuss with us will have the same flavour.

If your pet can communicate how he/she felt, or how you think they may have coped, they could tell their tale through you. 

Do you feel ok about talking to us so that we can record your stories?

Some of you will have lost so much, we don’t want to intrude. 


Please leave a comment on my blog here or email potter.helen@iinet.net.au

I have set up a closed group site on facebook. Animal Tales of a Bushfire

https://www.facebook.com/groups/1355507784528568/

I’m not sure how this works? But if we become friends then I can invite you to join the group I think.

 

Many thanks, Helen Potter Photographer and woofs from KoKo Potter

 

A recent visit to Subi Common

It’s Friday evening again. Time for a stroll at Subiaco Common after my hour with the oldies at Berrington Nursing Home. The ladies love me visiting and give me lots of

Time for a stroll at Subiaco Common after my hour with the oldies at Berrington Nursing Home. The ladies love me visiting and give me lots of pats.

The autumn air was crisp tonight and the leaves rustled underneath my paws. I had a short play with Piper, Max, Lucinda and a few other mates.

A Joke about dog Fleas

A weak joke I heard at the park today:

A dog told me that he had some fleas.

The four of them had been hanging around for a few days so he thought that he should introduce himself.

“I’m Fred the Basset Hound. What are your names please?

They replied, “We are called John, Paul, George and Ringo”.

My doggie mate could not contain his surprise so asked them how they got their names.

They laughed as they said:

We are a musical band called the Fleatles and

“we are waiting for someone to lie on!”
