Tales of Bushfire Animals Yarloop/Waroona/Harvey

Hi all in the Waroona/Yarloop/Harvey area
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 potter.helen@iinet.net.au to express your interest. Information forms are at the Community Centre and I will post some to your One stop shop. Regards

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

Hurrah! We will now have somewhere else to be tied to apart from rubbish bins and light poles.

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

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.
