Roaming Inner City…. And How We Met Ex Prime Minister Julia Gillard….

Walking into a large pet warehouse is rather like stepping into a stationery shop or a fabulous hardware emporium whereby you just can’t help yourself and become powerless to that exquisite rush of consumerism that travels from your tippy toes all the way up to your devouring eyeballs….it  can be a life changing moment for some where lugging home the 25kg pack of dry food on your shoulder as you try and walk the dog seemed like a good idea at the time. Warehouse is the operative word too, as it can be wearing on your own house when you come home with the new beds, toys and designer outfits and dogs too for that matter after their wax and pedicure on the way out and trip on the sixty five toys your dog already has as you walk in the front door and try and find space for all the rest. The disemboweled squeaky toys on the floor a testimony to former glory and happy times….

Dogs Inner City went roaming inner city on Sunday to discover just what one of our inner western pet warehouses had to offer. Choice is what we found…choice, choice and more choice…big things, little things, soft things, edible things and squeaky things….lots of things…..for dogs, cats and other little critters….

So much choice...

So much choice…

It’s called Pet O and we think the O stands for ‘Ohhh my gosh’ so many things to look at….we bought chicken necks and some liver treats and went window shopping to see what else they had….

Diney or piggy?

Diney, piggy or T Rex?

I've always loved that soft spot behind Miss Piggy's ears...

Pet O offer all the usual consumerables, grooming, training and friendly staff to answer your questions….

Scout opted out of the wax, pedicure and blow dry but we were delighted to meet our ex Prime Minister Julia Gillard on the way out….

Just how many Julia's are there....

Just how many Julia’s are there?….

And in case you feel there might be a little bias, Tony Abbott Leader of the Opposition will be arriving in about three weeks….and you never know …  perhaps a certain K Rudd our Prime Minister (second time round) shortly after….

You can find Pet O and your very own Julia or Tony or squeaky toy to donate to your favourite pet rescue at 1A The Crescent Annandale 2038 and their website here.

Adios and see you on the streets….

Dogs Inner City…….Paws and Recover….on the streets in Darlington

Quite often on our journeys throughout the inner city we meet the most interesting people… unexpectedly more often than not and just by stopping and talking to them. We like to hang out in Darlington when we can and spend time in one of our favourite restaurants and a nice old local pub where you find an interesting eclectic bunch of people to talk to and of course where our four legged friends are allowed entry. We’ll chat more about the dining and drinking state of affairs a little later in another post. I always carry the camera with me even at night you just never know what or who you might find and as you know I like to document the streets….a couple of months ago we spent some time at Carriageworks a great performance and art space right here in Darlington at the old Everleigh railyards and afterwards we wandered down the streets to find a bite to eat at our favourite restaurant Jap’s Table. Well good gracious, as we were strolling along we came across an unusual sight…several doggies lounging on the pavement with their carers at a local Thai restaurant….this is what we found…

…and so we got to talking and found out that all these little fellas were being cared for by a great organisation called Paws and Recover they are busy establishing a network of volunteers supporting people with the care of their pets during a health crisis or difficult and stressful times in their lives. They offer practical support such as dog walking, respite care, foster homes and pet transportation etc. The services they offer are free and offer an alternative to the rehoming, abandonment or animals being euthanased during times of illness or crisis in their owner’s lives.

Today on Easter Saturday it’s about wings….wings of desire, flights of fancy and a little bit of magic and sparkle in the air….

This is Duke but images of the fleet footed Hermes come to mind or Mercury to those of you with a more Roman bias…..fleet of foot and speedy with the wings….
