Houndstooth is a way of life

I had a haircut yesterday - and I look gorgeous (of course)!

I've been developing a lighter patch on one of my sides, just for fun, and this is what it looked like after my clip - it's a houndstooth pattern!

I'm hoping to extend it over my whole body...

... then I can fulfil my lifelong ambition of being a spokespuppy for David Jones.

We asked the groomer to give me a shorter face clip than usual, so my human can see my eyes under my eyebrows.

But now my head looks too small for my body, and my human suggests that perhaps I could consider eating less. I have no idea what that even means!


... I'm perfect the way I am!

This is a little confusing. See these signs? The big one on the right, with all the orange stuff, is new. The little one on the left has been there for a while.

Let's see what they say.

First the little one... dogs off leash - excellent!

Now for the big one... what? Dogs on leash? That's outrageous!

But these signs are right near each other, at the same entrance to the park - I don't understand... Let's go a little further into the park.

Hmmm... well it does say I'm supposed to be back on leash past this sign (it's ok to be off-leash before the sign), but if you look carefully on the other side of the tram tracks, there's another sign peeping over the top of the rubbish bin.

Let's take a closer look at that sign.

That's a bit confusing - it looks like for a couple of hours a day I can go off leash in this area. And it's a trial for the next three months. It's been a trial for the next three months for over a year now - every time the trial period expires, they stick a new sticker on and extend it - not that I'm complaining!

So I may or may not be allowed off leash in the area near the park entrance - depending on which sign I obey. And I'm supposed to be on leash on the other side of the tram tracks, unless it's a certain time of the day, and only for the next little while - maybe.

But fortunately for me...

... I can't read!
