Last weekend as we were enjoying a sweaty balmy 38C in Melbourne, we visited the huge, incredible and heavily air-conditioned National Gallery of Victoria. I’m not going to say too much about the gallery itself, other than its worth a visit. It’s … Continue reading Dogs in the National Gallery of Victoria
It was a drizzly autumn day last weekend, and as dachshunds are fair weather doglets only, we decided to chance it and hope for the best with a trip to the beach. Good decision, as it cleared a bit while … Continue reading Doglets go to the beach
Dogs in Myanmar for the most part seem to have ok lives. We saw them many times being fed by people and they don’t seem to be scavenging through rubbish like I have seen in some countries. However like many … Continue reading Dogs of Myanmar (photos)
I love old dogs! There is something about giving a home to an older animal that is so rewarding. We have just recently looked after a friends mini dachshund for a week while she went on a well deserved holiday. … Continue reading I love old dogs and I cannot lie
