I’m afraid of cats!

Cat Chase

I wish I’d had a mum who told me this story about why dogs chase cats:

“…………and then the mean old Kitty stole all the doggie treats and ran away down the street. That is why all us dogs chase cats!”

Except me. I am not ashamed to admit, I have a cat phobia. They scare me. An arched body, upright tail and hiss ….and I take off to safety! KoKo

MEET TRENDLISTR’S TRENDIEST PET…April 30, 2018
 Excerpt from a UK blog …
“Just a few weeks ago we launched our competition to find the trendiest pet in honour of National Pet Week, and it went global!
It was hard choosing a winner, but after much deliberation we crowned Koko as Trendlies’s Trendiest Pet!”
KoKo lives in Subiaco In Western Australia

Not only does Koko look good, he also likes to help other dogs in need – he wore this outfit when he was delivering dog food, beds and water to dogs who were sadly made homeless by a bushfire in his native Perth.
Trendlistr founder Louisa Rogers said ‘We were so impressed with all the entries received for the competition. It was so hard to pick a winner, but in the end, it had to be KoKo, because his story is a true testament to the age-old saying that “a dog is a man’s best friend.'”
KoKo will receive a personalised goody bag as a reward for his bravery and style, while his owner, Helen, will be rewarded with a cash prize as a thank you for sharing her adorable picture with us.”
Wow, What a bark! I’m thrilled to be an International star.
Of course, Mum Helen is not happy because she thought my head was swollen enough already!

KoKo Kidnapped!

Where’s KoKo? KoKo where are you??

Mum”s calls flew unheard, around the house and into the street! I was missing after a tradesman left the gate open.

Mum searched  nearby streets and lanes, then heaps of people joined in to help

They could not find anyone who had sighted me. Mum worried I’d gone under a neighbours house and eaten a poisoned rat, Maybe I’d been hit by a car and someone had taken me to the vet?

Tale to be continued soon!

I was so terrified he didn’t even bark even though his Mum walked nearby several times.

We are so happy to be back together.

Thank you to all his human mates who helped search.

Regards Helen

Holidays for KoKo

KoKo and Dog mates
KoKo and Dog 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

Best Subiaco Dog Cafes

               KoKo tasting a coffee

For 2016 I have selected two fantastic cafes to award equal first place.

  1. Spring Expresso in Bagot Rd Subiaco
  2. Melograno Cafe in Heytesbury Rd.

Despite numerous arduous testing sessions around Subiaco Cafes, I found it was difficult to separate these two.

The winning cafes win votes:

  • Very Dog-friendly (lots of mates for me to greet)
  • Occasional bits of food under the tables for me to clean (I’m an official Subiaco cafe dog cleaner)
  • Constant supply of fresh water in a dog bowl ( I get thirsty after my walks and frequent WeeMail stops)
  • Tasty milk froth on top of a coffee that I can have five finger tips worth (My “Puppicino”)
  • Consistently good flavoured hot coffee for my Mum Helen

Woofs and Thank you to George and Geoff and Baristas and staff

May we continue to enjoy your great coffee and service thought 2017

Keep us doggies cool in Summer

Tips to Keep Your Dog Cool (courtesy of Wembley Vet Clinic)

  • Fresh water and shade are the most important things to provide relief from the heat.
  • Have 2 or more water bowls around the house in case one is knocked over.
  • Try filling small plastic paddling pools with fresh water.  Some dogs love to have a dip in the heat of the day and cool off.
  • Fill soft drink bottles with water and freeze them overnight then put it in the dog kennel.
  • Dogs will love to lay on them or lick them to keep cool
  • Hair cuts can also help to keep you long haired pets cool.  shaved to get rid of their thick coats
  • Dogs and cats cant sweat through the skin – only the pads on the feet and dogs pant to cool down
  • Fill up an ice cream container with water and add a little Vegemite to flavour it.  Pop in 1-2 dog treats.  Freeze overnight and then give it to your dog in the middle of the day – they love to lick the ice and will help keep them occupied.
