Mum tried to get me to like water when I was just a puppy, but she wasn’t successful. If the weather is hot I’m a happy race down the sand slope and lower myself into the cool water but I will forever be an “armpit Swimmer” that’s as far as I’ll go! woofs from KoKo.
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!

There were lots and lots of doggies playing on the beach on New Year’s Day. I had a little swim and a long walk. I was so hot I tried to sneak into someone’s blue tent for some shade. Of course, I also conned some girls into giving me pats! That’s me in the last photo. It was a fun morning. Woofs from KoKo
A Hot Summer Poem
Of summer, not past
Baking in an oven
Slinking in the shade
Wanting to discover
Cool water to wade.
Poor burnt little feet!
Mum, can we please go down
To the cool of Cottesloe beach?
A plot to remove the Vera St dog beach from the map?
Thank you to all the doggie owners who turned up at the council to protest.
This beach not only keeps hundreds of doggies healthy and happy but also their humans. I am delighted that it has been saved.
What else would my Mum and I do on the three days each week I have my freedom to run and dig and socialise?
PS I note the neighbours have complained about some human’s poor hygiene so ask everyone please to pick up their doggies poo and put it in the bin (the poo not your dog!)

Please accept my apologies for not posting any news the last week. I have been leaving lots of Weemails on the beach and paths in Mandurah but without Woof-Fi they did not reach you.
Are you wondering why I am not hanging out sipping Puppicinos at my favourite Subiaco Cafes? Well, I am on holidays with my friends Bro and Bonnie and their humans John and Alison. We are called “The Three Amigos” when we are together as we share lots of exciting adventures.
Where is my mum? She tells me that she is a long long way away in a place called Indonesia. She is having fun snorkeling in warm waters, photographing fish and corals. I was not sure what the word snorkeling meant and photographs of two signs she sent me saying “Good senorkeling here” ” Please do not break the fish” did not help me at all.
Then Mum used two words I know well: “Swim” and “Beach”. Now I could picture myself rushing down the sandy slope to soak my paws and tummy in the cool ocean in summer. Mum says I am an “armpit” swimmer as I refuse to put my head or back under the water!
These are photos of some dogs that really enjoy frolicking in the sea.
Even though my mum is back in Subiaco I have been having such a fun time here in Mandurah that i am going to stay a few more days. (Don’t worry Mum, I still love you and will be back home with you soon).
