MEET TRENDLISTR’S TRENDIEST PET…April 30, 2018
 
Just a few weeks ago we launched our competition to find the trendiest pet in honour of National Pet Week, and it went global!
It was hard choosing a winner, but after much deliberation we crowned Koko as Trendlistr’s Trendiest Pet!

Not only does Koko look good, he also likes to help other dogs in need – he wore this outfit when he was delivering dog food, beds and water to dogs who were sadly made homeless by a bushfire in his native Perth.
 
Trendlistr founder Louisa Rogers said ‘We were so impressed with all the entries received for the competition. It was so hard to pick a winner, but in the end, it had to be KoKo, because his story is a true testament to the age old saying that “a dog is a man’s best friend.'”
 
KoKo will receive a personalised goody bag as a reward for his bravery and style, while his owner, Helen, will be rewarded with a cash prize as a thank you for sharing her adorable picture with us.”
 
Wow, What a bark! I’m thrilled to be an International star.
 
Of course, Mum Helen is not happy because she thought my head was swollen enough already!

At the Estuary Beach Mandurah.

It was a cold and gusty day today with a fine drizzle of mist.

Not enough to stop Mum and I sharing a walk along the foreshore.

We’d enjoyed a tasty lunch with John and Alison, Anne and Helen and Mum Helen.

The best part of the lunch was that the five of us: Bro, Bonnie, Poppy and Baxter and I, of course, were allowed to sit under the table.

Luckily the humans were feeling generous. We snacked on some crumbed squid, crispy prawn tails and marina pasta!

All in all, a fun social day.

We didn’t even bark at each other.

The only naughty dog to run to another table to be some fish from an elderly couple was someone whom I won’t name!

Dog parking Signs

Hi everyone in Subiaco,

My idea for Dog parking signs has finally come to fruition. Mum Helen sold the first one this morning to Melograno’s cafe. Hurrah! We will now have somewhere to be secured while Mum shops.

We no longer have to put up with being tied to rubbish bins and light poles.

We will post a more dynamic photo tomorrow.

KoKo’s Tips on better dog photography

  1. Photograph in natural light.
  2. Inside place your dog near a white wall within window light
  3. Clear the background of any distractions
  4. Use an aperture that creates a soft blurred background.
  5. Put a treat on top of the camera to get your dog’s attention.
  6. Ask a friend to help
  7. Get down to your pet’s level to achieve a  natural view.
  8. Use a squeaky toy, to get some eye contact.
  9. Walk your dog first to burn off excess energy
  10. Take your dog out for a big walk prior to the photo shoot, to work of fsome excess energy first.
  11. Use fabric to pad slippery surfaces.
  12. Outdoors – A high speed shot of your dog running can be dramatic. You will need an assistant to hold your dog until you are ready to call “come”

Animal Companions Party

We attended the AGM, waiting quietly for the treat we knew was coming afterwards. The Furbaby cafe had made a scrumptious cake which all us doggies were allowed to tuck into. You can see from the blue cream on our noses that not a lot went astray.

Furbaby cafe cake anxiously awaited

Dogs Leighton Beach WA

We had a lovely morning at Leighton Dog Beach today. The sun was shining and the water was crystal clear and just a pleasant temperature for my little dip. As usual

Sammy – My playmate

there were lots and lots of doggies having fun chasing balls in and out of the ocean. I made good friends with Sammy a relative type of dog and met a 58kg dog called Yogi. Wow, he was big and black and almost seven times my size. Here are some photos my Mum took.

Junkadelic Brass Band

Mum and I captured this band playing brassy music at Mt Hawthorn Festival Last Year. They were very lively for da dancing dog. Woofs from KoKo.

Dogs and more Dogs, at Dogtober Beaufort St Mt Lawley

I was very excited on Sunday morning as Mum told me we were going to the fair in Leederville. She promised I would get a chance to show off my tricks and win some money to buy more treats!

We browsed around the stalls while I tasted some home baked  treats (the tiny chicken bone biscuits – Yummy).

Then at 10am I jumped in line to register for the talent quest only to find I was an hour and a half early! Oh no, how sad, we could not stay. I generously left first place for another doggie win .

The photographer Abigail Harman took a photo of me drinking my Puppicino.

It seems I thought it was licking good!
