Subiaco Common Play Time

It’s fun to gather on a Friday night with lots of mates. Our parents get distracted talking to each other so we can do what we like. Whenever there is food around though you see us congregating close to where some silly human might drop something. Or, they might just give in to our large pleading eyes, and say TREAT! Tonight the matching twins Sebastian and Eli joined us, as did little Maddie.

Friday Dog Play at Subi Common

It started off as a sunny Friday evening with lots of us small dogs frolicking around, when down came a sudden rain storm. Everyone rushed under the big tree to hide from the rain.

What’s this? A doggie head count reveals someone is missing.

Now which dog would be silly enough to leave the main dog park and go searching for adventure just when the clouds are growing black and threatening?

Was it Rolly or Maggie? Hugo or Chopin? Maybe it was Moby?

No, It was me of course. With just seconds to spare before my mum gets really annoyed and has to come looking for me, I dash across the park, all wet and soggy wearing my favourite perfume. As I join the crowd I notice all the humans are moving away from me. Don’t they like my dog poo perfume?

That leads me to another thought. Maybe I should do a survey of my dog mates.

RD Park Kids Parties

It was a beautiful sunny day today so I spent some time just sitting in the park relaxing. The neighbourhood girls were there too so I got lots of pats as usual. Suddenly I was overwhelmed by a chirpy mass of nine-year old girls who were having a birthday party. They were all dressed up like the Mad Hatter’s characters and had funny painted faces.They were having fun.

Of course what I was really more interested in was their sausage rolls and little juicy meat pies!

Unfortunately I discovered that nine-year old girls are not as messy as three-year olds are when they are having a party so there was little for me to find to eat. Mum did ask if she could have just one sausage roll so that I could do my tricks for the girls. I got lots of pats afterwards. I was very popular!

Just as they were leaving the park this fancy car turned up. It had a very musical horn.

KoKo’s Blog about local Politics

Sorry, this is a blog about politics. I am very annoyed by what I hear……

I am most upset that the Premier of Perth is going to make my wonderful little community of the City of Subiaco into a massive spread out AMALGAMATION.

At the moment I know the Mayor Heather Henderson, the rangers, and the gardeners and workers who have lunch at my park. There are lots of functions at the library, concerts in the parks and walks i can go on to look at art. The CIty of Subiaco knows why I live in this suburb and is caring of our needs. We will lose this in a big Council..

Mum tells me that there is no financial reason for this change. Interstate and International experience shows there will be no money saved. I worry too about the ENVIRONMENTAL impact of having to change all the workers uniforms, the trucks and vans, and all the stationery.

I know my mum can now go directly to the council if there is a problem with one of my parks or with traffic.
AMALGAMATION means our voices will be lost and big real estate people might pinch all my sunshine and parks to build high-rise skyscrapers.

So if you read this blog and live nearby please speak out. Us dogs will spread the word in our Weemails.

Thank you
