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.
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
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.

from the pawsome dog blogger,
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!
