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!

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.

from the pawsome dog blogger,
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
A plea for a home
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
