A recent visit to Subi Common

It’s Friday evening again. Time for a stroll at Subiaco Common after my hour with the oldies at Berrington Nursing Home. The ladies love me visiting and give me lots of

Time for a stroll at Subiaco Common after my hour with the oldies at Berrington Nursing Home. The ladies love me visiting and give me lots of pats.

The autumn air was crisp tonight and the leaves rustled underneath my paws. I had a short play with Piper, Max, Lucinda and a few other mates.

I have been staying with my doggie mates at Mandurah again. Bro and Bonnie kept me company on walks in the park and down to the cafe every morning. Of course John and Alison, their humans, had to hold our leads.

“Spill the Beans” Cafe at Seacrest is very popular with the local dogs as the cafe sells tasty treats for us. We are lucky dogs.

At night us “Three Amigos” play “Musical Beds”, thinking that someone else’s bed is likely to be more comfortable. Some nights I creep out of my bed and lay on the floor nearer to John. He is surprised to find me in this spot in the mornings.

I always race back speedily to John when he calls me at the park, as he has an endless supply of doggie treats in his pocket.

Even though I enjoy staying with my mates nothing beats the joy of seeing my Human Mum at the door. All three of us leap over her as she arrives at the door. We slather her with kisses. I let out a sharp bark and run to our car. I stand next to the door barking loudly to ensure Mum knows I want to go back to my home in Subiaco.

Thank you John and Alison for your care and cuddles. Woofs from KoKo

Dogs at Leighton Beach NY Day

There were lots and lots of doggies playing on the beach on New Year’s Day. I had a little swim and a long walk. I was so hot I tried to sneak into someone’s blue tent for some shade. Of course, I also conned some girls into giving me pats! That’s me in the last photo. It was a fun morning. Woofs from KoKo

 

My mate Digby – by KoKo

My mate Digby has been staying with us again. He is soooo… energetic. He runs and jumps and chases toys and balls at the park. The kids love to join in as he is very polite. When he puts the toy down he steps back to let the kids safely pick it up to throw it. I’m not good at that. I tend to play “tug” and don’t really want to give the toy up.

You can see from the photo (on a cold day when he wore his blue jacket) that Digby is also good at loud barking to get what he wants. He can boss my Human Mum Helen around, but not as well as me!

On Sunday we met up with Morgan and Meg from Park St. They both looked very clean and trim with new haircuts.

A one headed four legged dog in Subi Centro Park!

Look what we found last Friday night – At first sight I thought it was Cleo but then maybe it was Barbara?

The two doggies were playing roll overs and suddenly one of them lost her head! Does anyone know who it is with the big smile on her face?   KoKo

Don’t let me get fat over winter please

Tips from Dr Greg from Subiaco Vet Clinic

 Feed only the recommended pet food, with no other leftovers, scraps, snacks or treats
 Wiegh me regulatly and record results, ideally charting progress over time
 Ensure that only one person feeds me
 Get a new, smaller feed bowl
 Always measure the food using scales or a cup measure
 Feed on a little and often basis, dividing the food into 2 to 4 meals
 Remove any uneaten food after ten to fifteen minutes
 Exercise and play are better rewards than food!

Thanks  Dr Greg – KoKo

The new Richard Diggins Park is now open!

It is with delight that I found the fence surrounding my favourite local park had been removed and I could resume my usual foray through the gardens, cleaning up under the picnic tables and playing with all the little kids.

There are new swings and slides but still plenty of space for me and the bigger kids to play frisbee and soccer. The City of Subiaco have even put in an extra bench for our owners and the mums and dads to sit on. Thank you City of Subiaco! KoKo
