Well time flies – Monday saw me at Greg the Vets in Subiaco having my ten year check yup. YES! I am now older than my human Mum.
I was very well behaved while Greg checked my teeth (95% great), my heart (still beating like a two year old’s), my lungs (sadly for my Mum not deteriorating in anyway, so I can still yell at her VERY LOUDLY), and of course I tolerated that little unmentionable test.
Bambi Rose (Greg’s cat) kept an eye on me in the Waiting Room
As a reward for my good behaviour my Mum Helen took me to Cliff Sadlier Park for a big run around.
There were old friends and new mates to play with at the park.
I played ball chase with Jack and Honey whom I had not seen for a long time. Us cream and apricot dogs don’t grow grey with age but instead, as you can see, change colour.
I discovered that Jensen and Albi still like to have fun. The most sprightly and cheeky puppy I met today was aptly named Minnie. Her golden fur glowed in the evening sun. She was with her auntie Maggie.
My love interests were spiked when I laid eyes on the gorgeous Marnie – she looked deeply at me with her King Charles Spaniel eyes and I melted into the green summer grass. She looked so… sweet! Coco and Lulu also seemed happy meandering around leaving Weemails for their mates.
As we walked around the park we met a trickster black dog who jumped back and forth through the hoop, and George with his colourful collar.
The play fighting twosome Elvis and Indy kept us laughing at their antics and jumping away when they came too close.

Please tell your doggie mates that they have won a place on my dog blog. I would not want them to miss their chance at celebrity status!! KoKo
As Mum and I had been eating a bit too much during the cold winter weather we thought we should spend more time at Daglish’s big CS Sadlier Park. There is lots of space to run around in, trees to leave Weemails at, and little patches of native gardens that I can romp through and hide from Mum.
The added benefit is The Agility Equipment supplied by the City of Subiaco. I weave my way through the hanging ropes, jump over the low yellow bars and run though the big yellow tunnel. Some of my mates love running up the steep ramp and up and through the big green hoop but I am only a little dog so I stick to what I can manage.
Jack, Fred and I are the official Park Dog Whisperers!
These three mates were having a vigorous play
While Ned and Kelly needed a rest after they had been racing around as usual.
Roxy rolled in some stinky perfume then took a bite of Max’s tail! Meanwhile other dogs had little interactions as they made new friends.
I was a bit grumpy tonight but Sherlock did not give up wanting to play with me. He followed me around for half an hour, every now and then politely asked if he could play with me. I refused and growled. I don’t know why I was in such an anti social mood. Maybe Mum pushed me out of the wrong side on my bed this morning when I was snoring!
