Yet another opportunity for self promotion presented itself to me. It was the “Walk Over October” energetic stroll around Subiaco. I love participating in community events.

On our way to Lord’s Sports centre for the walk  we stopped for a Puppicino at the new Rokeby Rd cafe called 1982. The cafe did not have a dog bowl outside so I asked very politely for a little cool drink. The owner bought me out a special cup of water just for me. That’s good service. I will have to make mum stop there again. (The coffee was pretty tasty too.)

We were asked to wear red for the Heart Foundation so you can see that I complied! I was pretending to be a Firedog. Of course everyone thought I was “Sooo…cute. My coat and hat were a little bit hot so I discarded them as soon as the photo opportunity was over.

We were meant to walk four kilometres, but even with the hope of good food treats at the end I could not finish.

I am sad to say my little paws were being burnt by the hot pavement. We had to take a short cut home. I hope that next year they have the walk a little earlier in the day so it is not so warm.

Mum told me later that I had missed out on banana cake and free coffee. Boy was I annoyed with her! I’m sure, due to my absence, she was able to have triple serves of cake.

Before I forget, I must tell you that my mum won a City of Subiaco prize for walking to work in September. Our photo was on an email with the other winners Mark Elliott and Jessie White and Ray White.
