Every month “Talk about Subi” arrives in our letterbox from the City of Subiaco. It tells us all the fun things to do. It lists the summer concerts in the park and community meetings. Sometimes at the meetings at The Palms I sit quietly on mum’s lap. I listen and watch whoever is talking intently. What happens in my suburb is important to me.
Mum and I also look forward to “The Subiaco Post Community Newspaper” arriving on Fridays. We find out what is happening in our suburb and what the council is planning. The Post tells us both sides of a story and supports residents doing good things. It also shares fun tales and positive achievements – not just all bad news or trivia like other papers.
Unfortunately it is hard for me to fetch the Post for mum as the delivery man puts it in the letterbox instead of on the garden! I am too short to reach it.
The Post may be good but the biggest local newspaper in the world is the ground us dogs walk on! I learn a lot about what happens in my suburb from sniffing all the WeeMails left by my friends on the WeeTrees.
I always read the LOST section of the post. I discover which dogs have lost their owners and keep a look out for them on my walks. This is an ad I saw recently from a distressed friend who that had lost his mum.
