Subiaco Station Street Markets

Saturday is our day to walk down Rokeby Road to the Station Street Markets for Turkish Pide or Curry and Dahl from Pappadams. If in need of a sugar hit, we head straight for the French Patisserie for a crunchy croissant. Then Mum buys her nuts and muesli from Angry Almond and her fruit and veggies from one of the well-stocked stalls. I wait patiently as usual near the flower stall. (If you read my Love Blog you will see why I wait near the flowers!)

Recently a new stall selling thick creamy milk and yogurt has become my favourite. The woman is wonderful she always offers me a little cup of milk. “Woof, Woof? More please?” I ask politely looking up at her with my big brown glowing eyes and delightful smile.

This is also where Mum bought my Eagles Jacket. Val measured me from nose to tail then around my fluffy middle so that the jacket would fit well. Of course I think I look pretty handsome on football days and it keeps me warm. What do you think?

My Doggie Love Tale


Love is born in the most unusual places.

One busy Sunday at the Subiaco Station Street Markets my heart started beating very fast  as we neared the flower stall. I had never felt like this before. I let out a little “Yip Yip” sound to let mum know something was wrong.

Mum looked down at me and saw that I was very pale and shaking. She also noticed I was staring up at the flower stall. So Mum followed my eyes and I saw a grin creep across her face.

“Don’t worry KoKo, your heart is ok. I think you have just fallen in LOVE!”  For there, surrounding by lovely red tulips, was the most beautiful little girl dog I had ever seen. She was very tiny and very very cute. I felt a warm blush creep across my face and my body felt warm and cuddly inside. it was a nice feeling.

After Bella and I had shared a sniff hello, Mum let me stay with her for a little while. We just kept shyly glancing at each other. I was smiling. Now I visit her every Sunday while mum shops.

Love is one of the seven wonders of the world. The other wonders are:

To see – the trees, the sky and other doggies faces

          To hear – the crackle of a snack pack in a human’s pocket

          To touch – the cool water at the beach on a hot day

          To taste – the scent of BBQ sausages

          To feel – the love in my mum’s hand as she pats me

          To laugh – with happiness as I run in free in the park

          To love – everyone I meet

Mum has told me the story of the Magic Pudding. The more he gave away the more he had to give away.

Don’t be afraid to love – you have an endless heart full inside you.

Scary Night Tails

On moonless nights I can feel the heavy darkness around me as we walk up Park Street near our home. Leafy trees block the cute lantern lights that the City of Subiaco put in. We can barely see whether a sneaky cat is creeping towards us ready to scare me.

But mum is not frightened. She says she feels safe walking with me. She thinks that I will frighten off anything spooky.

You can probably imagine mum’s surprise when I told her one night “If I feel frightened in the darkness I will run back to my home very very fast and leave you alone!” Mum looked shocked.

Then, with a twinkle in my eyes, I said: “I am just tricking you mum! I would stay with you and look my scariest and I would growl very loudly …..GGGGGRRRRRRRRRRR  WOOFWOOFWOOOOOOOOF”.

You can see me practicing this in the next photo.

My Slippery Snake Tail


I would now like to tell you how I became a hero one day in Subiaco’s Richard Diggins Park.

It was a lovely sunny day. The kids and I were happily playing with a ball when we heard a rustle under the gum tree. We looked around but we could not see anything unusual. The kids threw my ball across the park and I raced after it. Suddenly I heard the kids screaming and they were running around everywhere.

I looked around, and there, just near the swings, was a snake!  It was long, black and red. Its fangs were shooting in and out. Its coat was slippery and slimy and its face looked very fierce. It grew bigger and BIGGER and BIGGER as I looked at it.

I put aside all my fears and called out to the kids “Don’t worry I will get it”.  I ran as fast as I could under the swings, around the rocking beetle, under the picnic tables and through the bushes, chasing it. As it slid over branches and under twigs and through the prickly bushes I kept following it as fast as I could.

Finally I caught it! I grabbed the screaming little creature around the neck and dragged it to show the kids. i was all excited, happy and proud. The kids all clapped and called out “Thank you KoKo. You are a very brave dog”.

My mates and all the parents flocked to the park to hear about my heroism.


Ha! Ha! That was really just another dog’s tail! Do you think I am a good storyteller
