I walked around the Subiaco oval tonight while the game was on, sending lots and lots of encouraging vibes to the Eagles players. It worked ! They won well and are off to Melbourne next week for the Grand Final. I hope they won’t miss my good luck as I have to stay in Perth.
These are some photos of me in my Eagles encouraging mode.

Have you seen me on Page 3 of The Subiaco POST Newspaper? (with my Mum and neighbours trying to cross Townshend Rd).
We are worried that the State Government will take away my WeeTrees and widen Townshend for cyclists.
We won’t be able to cross the road or park near our house. I will miss the chirping of the birds in the Gum trees and Jacarandas.
Please let your friends and neighbours know that they can send feedback to the City of Subiaco at www.haveyoursaysubiaco.com.au. Please submit your feedback by OCT 5th.
We must save our leafy suburb and birdlife, while still supporting improved bike facilities on a better series of streets. Woofs Helen and KoKo Potter

Hey – browsing the internet while my Mum is at work has its plus side.
I’ve discovered that Whiteman Park is hosting the 5th annual Doggies Day Out event this Spring!

This special celebration of our four-legged friends proudly supports RSPCA WA and features the participation of over 40 pet-related exhibitors, including event sponsors FurBaby Boutique & Cafe and award-winning pet photographer, Houndstooth Studio.
There will also be fun activities for you and your beloved dog to enjoy throughout the afternoon:
- ‘Doggie’ face painting, balloon benders (into many doggy shapes) and a Scooby Doo bouncy castle for the kids
- RSPCA Dog Training and fundraising
- Pet contests throughout the day – whose pooch has the loudest bark, waggiest tail or is the smiliest?
- Dog treats and food
- An on-lead adventure course for pooches (fees apply)
- Hydrobaths and grooming, with part proceeds to RSPCA WA
- Homewares for your pet – from doggy doors to pet beds
- Information on local services for your pet

All dogs are welcome and encouraged to attend the event which is located opposite the main playground in the village, but must be on a lead at all times (unless inside the Dog Park). Dogs requiring muzzles by law must have one on at all times.

After discovering that Perth State Government has plans to remove the median trip in our road, and cut down our wonderful trees, to widen the road for cyclists we have been very active. Our meeting today in Richard Diggins Park was well attended and we all learned a lot from our neighbours who spoke. Everyone is now fired up to take to the press and hound (!!) the City of Subiaco to listen to our concerns.
I was extremely good and sat quietly in Mum’s arms for the meeting. Mum rewarded me with a lovely tasty lamb bone later. Maybe good behaviour is worthwhile sometimes. Woofs from KoKo
When my Mum came home from work tonight, we went for a quick walk, then I ate my dinner. I was a bit annoyed when I saw she was intending to go out again. I had thought we would have a nice quiet evening at home.
Where did Mum go? She went on a frog hunting walk at Lake Jualbup with The City of Subiaco Environment staff !
Here are some pictures of a Motorbike frog (I’ve heard the sound before in our back yard near our fish pond, but thought it was a motor bike reving up). Mum also snapped a Slender Tree frog which was hiding in some branches.
