Thank You KoKo and Helen
We were part of a huge event yesterday near Mandurah in Western Australia, with 78 dogs and their owners pattering around the pathways of Seascapes.
During the morning we popped in to Spill The Beans Cafe for my Puppicino and met some local dogs.
We had a choice of how far to roam as long as we kept to the path above the dunes where there were no cars. It was a perfect walking day.
Most families walked two to four kilometres while other humans stopped their enthusiastic dogs at the three km mark and turned for home. The fittest dogs returned along the beach front and nicked into the waves for a quick cool down.
A few older dogs pleaded exhaustion at only the one km turn around. I think they knew the sausages were cooking on the BBQ and did not want to miss out.
We raised a lot of money for the K9 Dog Refuge and the RSPCA, who help doggies who have been cruelly treated. Unlike other charity walks around Perth this one, organised by my friend John and his team of volunteers, ensured all the donations went straight to the charities we were supporting.
Thanks for everyone who participated. it was a fun day. We hope to see you and more of your mates at next year’s walk.
Now I need to talk about me.
Of course I was the cleverest dog the event. While my mum Helen was busy taking photographs of all my mates, I hung around the BBQ and charmed lots of humans into giving me “just a little bit” of sausage. By the end of the day i could barely walk . My little tummy stretched to the limit and felt as though it might go “pop”! I did not need any dinner at home that night.
At the moment I am having another little snooze while my mum gets the photographs ready to show you. You will see pictures of little dogs and huge ones, curly coated ones and long hairs, and of course some skinny hounds and a few chubby ones.
More Photos coming soon!
Love to all,

This afternoon, just as the school kid were walking home, my mum and I took a walk at the big Subiaco Dog Park.
We had not been there since the nasty dog attacked me in Park St, as we are now both a little wary of bigger dogs.
Luckily we found that all the dogs were friendly and welcomed me back.
Of course as I had not been here is ages I found lots of WeeMails to catch up on.
I just ran from one bush, to another, then found a tree branch with a message.
My nifty nose detected a WeeMail on every post in the park.
I caught up on six weeks of gossip! You may notice I am wearing my Eagles Footy jacket.
It is starting get cooler in the evenings so I need a little extra coat.
We noticed that he City of Subiaco have built a new playground for the kids and human babies. It looks like good fun.
I hope the rangers don’t fence me out, like they do at Mueller park.
Us dogs enjoy the challenge of the agility equipment – especially as it means treat!
Woof to all,

Eight-year-old Maltese Shih-tsu KoKo may have saved his Subiaco owner from a frightening attack by an German
Helen Potter was walking her pint-sized pet past Richard Diggins pocket park near her Townshend Road home three
weeks ago when the dog rushed out from under a bush in the dark.
“KoKo and I play in the park every day” Helen said. “It’s one of our favourite spots”.
“KoKo was on lead, sitting by my foot while I chatted with a neighbour who was resting on the bench with
“Two dogs ran out from under the bushes. One of them bounded past but the Alsatian leapt at me. I screamed in fear.
“At the last moment the Alsation saw KoKo, twisted in the air and grabbed him instead.
“After the dog threw him around like a football, KoKo escaped screaming down the street and tried to hide under a car. But the dog
chased him and mauled him a second time.”
Helen said her neighbour threw his shopping bags at the dog to try to fend off the attack,
which was unprovoked and extremely vicious.
I worry for the children in the park should this dog escape from his home again.
