    Johnny meets lucky dogs

    It is day 4 of my get fit campaign. You might remember day 3, back in November, Johnny does Yaccaba. http://teakdoor.com/australia-new-ze...s-yaccaba.html.
    Today the programme recommences with a morning jog on the beach, well, a walk/jog/puff/walk, and some photos of the local canine population.

    I have been thinking lately about the great job done by those humane dog carers in Thailand. Like humans, the life situation dogs find themselves in is really just an accident of birth. However, unlike humans, dogs aren’t in a position to change conditions for themselves or their kind. This video says it all about the type of work being done in Thailand and highlights to me how lucky our local dogs are.

    This is my local beach in NSW, Australia. There is a section here where you can exercise your dog off the lead. Everywhere else you have to keep your dog on the lead at all times. If your dog defecates, you have to pick it up and most people do the right thing and carry some plastic bags for the purpose. If you don’t, the fine is A$300.

    I saw a bloke pick up after his dog, and leave this for the return trip rather than carry steaming dog turd on his walk. Good boy, except a bloody Crow took off with it minutes later.

    This time of the year the beach is busy and there are also these urban tractors to contend with.

    Here are shots of some very lucky and happy dogs.
    This fella is Rocky. A bit of Pit Bull in him I think, but seemed to be well socialised with the other dogs.

    This is Porsha. Her owner was telling me that the breeder sends these “white” Golden Retrievers to Japan where their owners delight in dressing them up. Lucky Porsha.

    The dogs all seem to get along fine. A bit of bum sniffing and the occasional heckles up, but no dramas. The owners all seem to get along well too, stopping to have a yarn as they pass. I reckon that people who like dogs must be ok.

    The big fluffy bloke is a Labradoodle, a cross between a Labrador and a Poodle. He was a bit shy and his owner thinks he may have been knocked around before they got him. His stumpy mate was real friendly though.

    This is a cross Dingo/Kelpie. These are real intelligent dogs but need a firm master to be the pack leader.

    This is Winifred, an English Pointer. A very soft nature and a bit bored with proceedings.

    This lovely Cocker Spaniel was my pick. He came and sat beside me whilst I talked to his equally nice owner.

    The beaches are really beautiful in Oz.

    The doggies are so cute too. The cocker spaniel is lovely.

    Good to know that if I go to the beach in Oz, I won't be stepping in doggie poop.
