We, the Dogs that is, were a little worried about the first day of the new kerbside recycling service. We were expecting to find recycling wheelie bins & bags in the middle of the footpath instead of at the curbside. When we are out taking a dog walk we can get one eyed about anything blocking our progress, you know how it is.... things to see, places to go, pee mail to read, dog parks to visit.... important stuff to a dog! Anything at all that gets in our way or impeeds our progress....
Sometimes my dog walker says "go right" and I mix up my left paws with my right, and I go left.... and my smart arse dog walker laughs and says "no your other right" and has to stop and untangle my lead from around the wheelie bin or even back me up...
Sometimes I just want to jump over the green bin instead of mucking about going around, but that doesn't always work out to well! see photo >
So we dogs were quite relieved not to find very many bins at all blocking the footpath, well done everybody! A BIG Paws Up from us Dogs!

Didn't he do well, for a dog? You should have seen him using the keyboard, he kind of had to type with one toenail as his hairy paws are way to big for the keys!
Good Dog! Well Done Boy!

Had to bath the dog....
due to a incident with some poop in the park, Churton Park Dog Exercise Area on Halswater Dr actually. Someone failed to scoop their dogs poop, one minute she's sniffing, the next she's dropped her shoulder and rolling! Yuk! No it wasn't funny. Twice in two days!
One of the hazards of dog walking.
Could have used Cecilia's Pampered Pooch Dog Hair Salon Dog Bath services!
Cecilia and Pampered Pooch have recently relocated from 8 Frank Johnson St, Johnsonville, on the motorway overbridge, to # 64 Ohariu Road, Johnsonville next to the Meekwoods Reserve Dog Park up above Johnsonville Main School.
