Paws in Subiaco
Hi to all you Subiaco doggies, here is a challenge for you.
here is a challenge for you.
All you have to do is drag your parent to a coffee shop (listed below), look cute and ask them to take a picture.
You will be pleased to know that iI won’t be participating (which will give you all more chance to win!),
as my Mum is a bit technophobic and does not know how to use instagram!!
Mog and Bone are providing a prize which your parent can use to buy a luxury bed or new bowl or maybe some fancy treats.
Good Luck to everyone.

Oh dear, I feel awful, my tummy is tense with pain, I feel as if I might throw up (again) and I am not my usual bright self.
Mum thinks I ate too much last night. I kept yelling at her to give me more food.
Or maybe I found something at Leighton Beach when she was not looking.
Whatever it was, the short enjoyment I might have felt is in the past. I feel dreadful.
So when Mum took me to my favourite park and I would not even check my Wee-mails, she knew I was not pretending.
After two injections from the vet, including a painkiller, I am still not feeling well. Even peaceful sleep won’t come to me.
I hope that I can write to you tomorrow and tell you all is well.
I am not well
(Certainly, Mum’s wallet is not very well either!)
Woofs from a miserable KoKo
My Mum Helen and I had a great day at Waroona and Yarloop on Saturday. We chatted to the vet staff (They remembered me from last year and recognised me from my Fireman’s outfit). We had a chat to Robyn about her animals and the bushfire then Michael from the ABC in Bunbury interviewed. I hope lots of people with animals whom the bush fire affected will contact us. We are looking forward to hearing their stories and Mum will take photos of the cute animals.
Me and a Mate at the Park
Mum Helen will head down to Yarloop again on Sunday 21st July but I might need to stay home if she is taking photos. I get jealous if other pets get more attention than me!

Chocolate contains theobromine and caffeine, which in larger amounts is especially dangerous because pets can’t break it down and eliminate it the same way humans can. It can build up to toxic concentrations and cause multi-organ disease and failure if not treated properly.
What symptoms will you see if your doggie mate eats chocolate this Easter?
Symptoms will occur from four to 24 hours after your pet has eaten chocolate and will vary depending on the amount of chocolate (theobromine) your dog has eaten. Dr Lui says, ” theobromine mainly affects the heart, central nervous system, and kidneys. Theobromine is a toxin that links to hyperactivity. Death can occur.”
Symptoms of eating chocolate are:
- Rapid breathing
- Muscle tension, incoordination
- Increased heart rate
- Blood in vomit
KoKo’s personal tale about chocolate
If I eat chocolate, then you need to take me to the vet. The doctor will force charcoal down my throat and make me throw up (just like they did when I ate a blowfish!). They may also give intravenous fluids (a drip), medication to control heart rate, blood pressure and seizure activity.
“I WILL NOT EAT CHOCOLATE” I keep repeating this phrase if I find my Mum Helen’s stash. I do not want to sit on newspaper and be made to throw up. Sadly I know from experience that if I find a special treat I will forget all the vet’s warnings. So I keep reminding myself “I WILL NOT EAT CHOCOLATE.”
Luckily, with prompt intervention and treatment, even in dogs that have eaten large amounts of chocolate, the prognosis for a poisoned dog is usually good. If you thick that your pet has eaten chocolate, contact your nearest Vet urgently for treatment.

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.
