My mum Helen will be in the Yarloop/Harvey area on
Friday afternoon the 21st July,
Saturday 22nd July
to take free photos of your pets and animals and to listen to your stories.
All residents whose animals were evacuated, lost, found, injured or passed away are welcome to contribute to this project.
Kids are also welcome as, with your help, I hope to have some fun twists to the blogs.
I’ll also be at the Bowling club event on the Saturday night so please introduce yourself. Please like or comment on this post or email firstname.lastname@example.org to express your interest. Information forms are at the Community Centre and I will post some to your One stop shop. Regards
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.
Today, Sunday Sept 11th, was a bit overcast and breezy but ideal for our 3.7km walk around the lake with my Animal Companion mates. We all usually visit individual hospitals to spend some quiet patting time with nursing home seniors, so only catch up to each other socially twice a year.

At first I was very energetic and sprinted on my four apricot paws steadily overtaking about twenty other dogs who had headed out early. I was busy reading some WeePlies to other WeeMails left at some bushes so missed the start!
At one stage my Human Mum Helen thought I was trying to win the gold medal as I put my body in top gear and rushed from last towards the front group of dogs, then from third to second to the front of the pack.
Mum told me it was supposed to be a pleasant walk not a race. After more than ten years with me however she knows my personality and had talked to me beforehand about pacing myself if I was going to be in a competitive mood. Of course I ignored her advice and just raced at my sprint speed until about a third of the way. I found my little heart was beating rapidly and a tight aching was spreading down my legs.
Rather than prove Mum was right and I was wrong to start out too fast, I deviated off the path to the nearest trees and left some WeeMails. This gained me some respite so I repeated the sequence for another ten trees. By this time I was well back in the pack but surprisingly happy to match my pace with 14 yr old Siena and just pad quietly to the coffee shop. It was a good walk. We thanked Carla and Mike for organising it. Woofs from KoKo
You can see my pleading eyes. I am usually in my kennel at the Dog Refuge but today I was allowed to chat to some kids outside the fund raising high tea at Royal Perth Yacht Club last weekend. Please someone, much as I love the care at the Dog Refuge, I would love a permanent home. Thank you for coming to visit me and my doggie mates at Shenton Park
Here is a pawsome note from KoKo “My Human Mum Helen gobbled all the food at the High tea. She said it was wonderful. I was pleased that she did think of Digby and me and brought home a little meaty nibble for us.”
“She also bought a snazzy new coat for Digby to protect him when we walk on a rainy day. It is a camouflage colour so we would have a little trouble seeing him in the park if he did not have his huge white fluffy tail.”
“Please donate to the Dog Refuge to help them feed and care for all the homeless doggies.” Thank you KoKo
