I love the colourful Subiaco Lanes. Art is hidden in secret spaces.
Our morning walks take us through the mysterious Subiaco lanes. I am always vigilant in case I find some food hidden there! Later on I will tell you about my Satay stick find which landed me in a lot of trouble.
On lucky days I find a building site with space under the gate for me to squeeze through and explore. Mum says it is dangerous as there might be sharp nails or bits of tin that will cut me. Sadly I have usually dashed off so quickly I don’t hear her yelling at me to stay.
One day I discovered why the lanes always looked so clean. We met a cute little yellow machine with two big hairbrush eyes. I called it the YELLOW BUG. When I discovered two people hidden inside the bug, I said “Thank you Mr. and Ms. Street Sweepers. You do a great job”.
The City of Subiaco supports artworks in the lanes. These are some that I have found as I lurk around the lanes in the early morning. I think they brighten up the suburb. Thank you.
These two signs are my favourites of course.
Even the railway station at Daglish has art.
I also appreciate the artists who put their work where I can see it as despite having large wallowing eyes I only have little legs.

My mum has told me about the Dog Refuge Home WA. When dogs are found wandering on the street with no name tag or microchip, the Dogs’ Refuge Home is often called upon to rescue the dog and find it a loving ‘forever’ home. Many dogs are also “dumped” by their owners when they find they cannot look after them or just grow tired of being responsible dog parents.
The refuge was formed in 1935 and survives with, until recently, no government funding. Without the help of many volunteers and generous donations by caring people this service would not be able to exist.
I was amazed to learn that sometimes the Dogs’ Refuge gets up to forty new dogs in just one week! The staff need donations of food to help feed the dogs. If your mum or dad has some spare dog food they could drop it in the basket at Farmer Jacks in Subiaco or take it directly to the Dogs’ Refuge and place it in the donation bins provided.
Please donate tohttp://www.dogshome.org.au or visit the Dogs’ Refuge Home at 30 Lemnos Street, Shenton Park between 11am-4pm 7-days a week to see if you can volunteer some time to look after my lonely mates.
