Leighton Beach Stroll

Hi all, Mum and I had a delightful walk in Perth’s beautiful winter sunshine this morning. We started at Leighton Beach then headed north to Mosman Park. As

As usual, many other dogs were having fun too. Mum even had a dip despite the chilly water. She said it was refreshing but I noticed she shivered a bit afterwards.

We warmed up with a coffee from Bib and Tucker, then headed home via the dog food shop to buy me a few more treats!

“Dog Parking Signs” Subiaco

I pestered my Mum Helen to make some “Dog parking Signs” as I was fed up with being tied to a rubbish bin in the stinking heat or pouring rain.

Being anchored under a table was ok but tying me to a chair was not sensible (see my blog on “The Traumatic Chair Chase” https://kokosdogblogdotcom1.wordpress.com/wp-admin/post.php?post=8932&action=edit). I love her creativity and cleverness in making these signs. Please let me know what you think. Melograno Cafe has purchased one ($35). Lots of dogs have used my sign when they wait near at Andre’s Yogurt Shop.

I’d love to have one at the library (where we have to mix with the bicycles) and one near Simon Johnson’s store as there is nowhere to be anchored nearby.

Please let me know what you think and if you know a spot in Subiaco that needs one.

A Traumatic Chair Chase Tale

My next tale describes an unexpected misadventure one winter’s morning outside Spring Expresso Cafe in Subiaco.

I usually wait, tied to a pole in the street, while Mum buys our coffees.  One day Mum tied me to a chair under shelter instead, as she didn’t want me to get cold and wet. My Mum cares for my well being. She had no idea then of the negative consequence which would happen because of her thoughtful actions.

I was half snoozing when, a big truck thundered past, startling me into wakefulness. My eyes sprang open, my ears flattened against my head as an icy cold fear spread through me. Without taking a paws to think, I ran for home as fast as my tiny legs could carry me.

As I sped along Bagot Rd, I heard “Bang, Crash, Bang, Scrape” behind me. The noise boomed louder and louder. BANG, Crash, BANG. The faster I ran, the louder the clatter. With my tail tucked under with worry, I glanced around and saw the chair was still chasing me. What could I do except run faster and faster trying to reach the safety of my home? As I spun around the corner into Townshend Rd “BANG, CRASH, BANG, SCRAPE” was still shouting in my sensitive ears.

Thank goodness Mum, who was running after me, finally got closer. She grabbed the chair and killed it, saving me from a traumatic death. I was too traumatised even to say, “thank you”. Mum carried me home. She cuddled me and trying to calm me by talking quietly in a reassuring voice. Eventually, after she put me in my bed, my terror subsides, and I slept.

The next day Mum thought I was fine but I put my brakes on and refused to go around the corner into Bagot Rd. Mum tried telling me it was OK; the chair was gone and could not hurt me. Despite her reassurance, I continued to feel frightened. She tried walking me a different way to the cafe to trick me, but I’m no fool, I knew what she was doing. As we approached the cafe, I shook and whimpered.  Mum was sad as she knows I love my Puppicinos.

Mum said, “KoKo, we need to find a solution. Why don’t we go and see Greg to ask if he can help?” Greg my vet explains he has some tablets which will help me feel better. I’m a good boy and eat my medication (wrapped in a meaty treat) every day for a whole month. I’m pleased to say I felt much better. I’m was not afraid to go to the cafes anymore! Mum said, “KoKo, you’re an expensive dog to look after, but I love you.”
