D is for………..

Dark Dogs

This mornings Pooch Walk was all about the “D”. Everywhere you looked D-related observations could be made.

  • Deliberation (I’m going to run here and you’re going to throw the ball there…aren’t you…!),
  • Dedication (to chasing all creatures furry, feathered or buzzing…!),
  • Daring (bet you can’t catch me…!),
  • Demanding (where are those treats and that water…?),
  • Dastardly (especially if called Muttley)..none of these are…!),
  • Dribbly (some more than others…put Retriever, Noofy, Bernese or Basset Hound in the mix and you always get slobber…!),
  • Dapper (“yes, just leave a hint of grey Dahling…” apparent instructions to groomers),


  • Debonair (the names Mann, D B Mann… ),

but most obviously today, D stood for;



Whistling Banyan

… lighting… check,

… breeze abated…. check,

… sun moved behind a cloud… check

… and saying “cheeeeeez”…

… the temptation to stick your tongue out is just overwhelming…!

… Thanks Banyan.

PWCNW – Recertified in Walks n Wags Pet First Aid

Walks n wags

I am pleased to advise that I was recently recertified in Walks n Wags Pet First Aid.

It doesn’t make me Dr Pol or the Bondi Vet…but it does mean that I have a good idea of what to do before taking your pooch to see one of them!

If you have an interest in a Pets First Aid course and/or would like to see more I would suggest that you check out Ellis Van Schuur’s Paws First Aid website and have a look at her Paws First Aid Facebook page. You can have some fun whilst learning…and you never know when your new skills will come in useful.
