Passend zum Welthundetag, haben wir keine Mühen gescheut, für Euch über den Tellerrand zu blicken. Helen Potter und ihr Hund Koko wünschen Euch aus Australien alles Gute zum heutigen Festtag und berichten Euch über das Hundeleben in Australien. Zudem hat Koko Euch noch zwei Hundewitze aus Dog Under mitgebracht…

Hi and Happy Dog Day to all of you German Doggies. My Mum tells me that you live a very long way away.
I love living in Western Australia. There are 2000 in my suburb of Subiaco. There are many little fluffy dogs. Maltese, poodles, Shih Tsu and every mix in between. Most people buy their dog from the Dog Refuge that looks after lost and abandoned dogs.
We have lots of parks where us dogs can run free and other parks where we must stay on lead. Any evening, rain or sunshine, my human Mum takes me to a big park where I can run and meet with my doggie mates.
There are some big Rottweilers, Retrievers, Staffies and Labradors. I am a bit scared of some of these, as I am only a little fluffy dog.
If you read my blog you will discover that I am a very clever dog as I can read Weemails and leave Weeplies so that I keep up with the local gossip.

I am also well known for drinking my Puppicino at the local cafes. I am a bit spoiled! In Western Australia, we are not allowed on trains or in cafes. It’s a bit frustrating.
In summer, we have sections of the beach that we can run on and swim in. It is great fun. Here are some jokes I found on the Web.

Dog Joke 1

A guy saw a sign in front of a house, ‘Talking Dog for Sale.’ He stopped and the owner told him the dog was in the backyard. The guy went into the yard and saw a Labrador.

‘Do you talk?’ he asked the dog. ‘Yes,’ the Lab replied.

‘So, what’s the story?’

The Lab looked up and said, ‘Well… I discovered that I could talk when I was young. I wanted to help my country, so I told the police about my gift, and in no time, at all they had me jetting from country to country, sitting in rooms with spies and world leaders, because no one figured, a dog would be eavesdropping. .. I was one of their most valuable spies for eight years running.’

‘However, the jetting around really tired me out, and I knew I was not getting any younger so I decided to settle down. I signed up for a job at the airport to do some undercover security wandering near suspicious characters and listening in. I uncovered some incredible dealings and was awarded a batch of medals. I got married, had a load of puppies, and now I’m just retired.’

The guy was amazed. He goes back in and asked the owner what he wanted for the dog. ‘Ten bucks.’ the man said.

‘Ten dollars? This dog is amazing. Why on earth are you selling him so cheaply?’

Cos he’s a liar…. he never did any of that stuff!’ Ha!! Ha!!

Australian Dog Joke 2

A man rushed into the vet’s office carrying his dog, thoroughly distraught. The vet examined the dog’s still, limp body and sadly informed the man that the dog was dead.

Saddened at the loss of his best friend, the man asked A man rushed into the veterinarian’s office carrying his dog, thoroughly distraught. The vet examined the dog’s still, limp body and sadly informed the man that the dog was dead.

Saddened at the loss of his best friend, the man asked the doctor if he could please try one last time to revive the dog.

The doctor brought in a cat in a wire cage. He opened the sliding door. The cat got up, stretched, and slowly walked around the dog sniffing the body. When it was finished, it said “meow” and walked back into the cage.
Then the Vet’s Labrador walked into the room, and sniffed the dog all over. It then shook its head and left.
The vet looked at the man and said in his best bedside manner, “I’m sorry, but there is nothing I can do.” Resigned, the man sighed and said, “Thanks for trying. How much do I owe you?”

“Five hundred and fifty dollars,” the doctor replied.

“Fiv….Fiv…..Five-hundred dollars to tell me my dog is dead!” the man stammered.

“Well, it was only $50 for the office visit. The other $300 is for the CAT scan and $200 for the lab report.”
