Dog Mates at Mandurah Beach.

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!

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

My Dog Holiday – Mandurah

You may have noticed that I was very quiet on my Blog during April. My human Mum Helen has been travelling in New Zealand, and left me at my favourite dog spa resort in Mandurah.

J & A look after me and give me lots of cuddles. Bonnie Bro, Digby and I became the “four Amigos” as we squashed in the back seat of John’s car then played games on Falcon Beach. Of course we frequented our usual coffee shop and overwhelmed the customers with four happy doggie tails wagging everywhere

Another favourite time is in the evening when all of us cuddle up and watch TV. It is a very cosy pastime. I even snuck into J&A s  bed some nights, which is a bit naughty I know, but I was missing my Mum.

So finally, I now have my paws back on the computer keys, to continue my Dog’s Tale.

Seascapes RSPCA/K9 Dog Walk

We were part of a huge event yesterday near Mandurah in Western Australia, with 78 dogs and their owners pattering around the pathways of Seascapes.

Dog Walkers Warming Up

During the morning we popped in to Spill The Beans Cafe for my Puppicino and met some local dogs.

We had a choice of how far to roam as long as we kept to the path above the dunes where there were no cars. It was a perfect walking day.

Most families walked two to four kilometres while other humans stopped their enthusiastic dogs at the three km mark and turned for home. The fittest dogs returned along the beach front and nicked into the waves for a quick cool down.

A few older dogs pleaded exhaustion at only the one km turn around. I think they knew the sausages were cooking on the BBQ and did not want to miss out.

We raised a lot of money for the K9 Dog Refuge and the RSPCA, who help doggies who have been cruelly treated. Unlike other charity walks around Perth this one, organised by my friend John and his team of volunteers, ensured all the donations went straight to the charities we were supporting.

Thanks for everyone who participated. it was a fun day. We hope to see you and more of your mates at next year’s walk.

 

Now I need to talk about me.

Of course I was the cleverest dog the event. While my mum Helen was busy taking photographs of all my mates, I hung around the BBQ and charmed lots of humans into giving me “just a little bit” of sausage. By the end of the day i could barely walk . My little tummy stretched to the limit and felt as though it might go “pop”!  I did not need any dinner at home that night.

At the moment I am having another little snooze while my mum gets the photographs ready to show you. You will see pictures of little dogs and huge ones, curly coated ones and long hairs, and of course some skinny hounds and a few chubby ones.
More Photos coming soon!

Love to all,
