Can you understand me?

Thanks to Dr Greg from Subiaco Vet for some more tips!

 When I wag my tail – I am smiling!  But, if my tail is high and wagging slowly, I am feeling confident and friendly, whereas if I hold my tail low and wag it rapidly, it means i am a little nervous.
 When I am scooting or dragging my bottom on the ground I am itchy and probably have blocked anal glands. Mum knows to take me to Dr Greg.
 Licking – Most common reasons for licking ourselves and other dogs is that they taste good, and we are trying to show affection
 WHen you arrive home and I bring you a toy I am giving you a gift that I think you will like. It is a sign of my affection.

My Last Eagles Football Post

It’s been a fun year for me but a bit of a sad one for the West Coast Eagles. All the Blue and gold dressed fans passing my house on Footy days were cheerful and hopeful. But later on in the day when they trudged back to their cars they all looked a bit disappointed. I hope that next year the Eagles players are more energetic. I look forward to wearing blue and gold for the footy finals in 2014.

These boys were raising money for the Cancer Foundation. Of course I gave them my support!

Congratulations Freo Dockers!

While I am usually an Eagles fan, today I did what lots of Western Australians did – I swapped my support to the other WA team “The Freo Dockers”. I was  fortunate that my friend Val at the Subiaco Markets gave me a Dockers’ purple and white coat to wear. Mum and I walked down to the Subiaco Oval with me feeling very special. Of course I got lots of comments and a few people took my photo!

I am sure that the Dockers won because of me being such an enthusiastic fan – Well maybe the energy of the other 20,000 fans helped too).

As we were padding along around the back of the oval I saw the most enormous dogs I have ever seen. Well, I thought they were dogs. They had four legs, wonderful large brown eyes and fluffy “fly sweeping” tails. Mum, being a bit smarter than me, told me they were actually horses! I sneaked up a bit closer and said hello to them, I must admit i was just a little bit frightened but they were very well behaved police horses. From my viewpoint just 30cm from the ground the policemen sitting on them looked like giants.

So now all the fans will be off across the Nullabore to watch the Grand Final at the MCG in Melbourne

Subiaco Station Street Markets

Saturday is our day to walk down Rokeby Road to the Station Street Markets for Turkish Pide or Curry and Dahl from Pappadams. If in need of a sugar hit, we head straight for the French Patisserie for a crunchy croissant. Then Mum buys her nuts and muesli from Angry Almond and her fruit and veggies from one of the well-stocked stalls. I wait patiently as usual near the flower stall. (If you read my Love Blog you will see why I wait near the flowers!)

Recently a new stall selling thick creamy milk and yogurt has become my favourite. The woman is wonderful she always offers me a little cup of milk. “Woof, Woof? More please?” I ask politely looking up at her with my big brown glowing eyes and delightful smile.

This is also where Mum bought my Eagles Jacket. Val measured me from nose to tail then around my fluffy middle so that the jacket would fit well. Of course I think I look pretty handsome on football days and it keeps me warm. What do you think?

A West Coast Eagles Blog


My day started well. Mum and I had a long walk in beautiful Kings Park then we sat among the flowers drinking our coffee.

When we arrived back home mum helped me put on my Eagles jacket as it was a footy day. We walked down to the Subi Oval (whoops I forgot the oval has a silly name now that i can’t remember) and padded around absorbing the atmosphere.


Lots and lots of people stopped to pat me and say “oh he is sooo… cute! (which of course I already knew).

Just for fun I even did a Nic Naitanui impersonation!


Usually I sit on the verge outside my house on footy days but as today was the Derby I thought maybe the Eagles needed me to be closer to the oval to bring them luck. I am happy to say it worked! When I left at half time they were winning.

I went home and had a little sleep on mum’s bed (please don’t tell her, she thought I was in my own bed). Later, when all the Eagles fans were slowly walking back to their cars looking sad I realised I should not have left – the Dockers ended up beating them again.

Maybe Next year will be better?
