Not a day to sit down

By Meg Hill

Dodo and Penny were pleasantly surprised with clear blue skies and plenty of sun on a late June day in windy, sea-exposed Docklands.

It was for this reason that the pair refused to obey Becky, the day’s designated walker, when she asked them to “sit down” – apparently their best (and only) trick.

Becky owns three-year-old Dodo, a poodle, but was also accompanied for the day by Penny – a friend’s dog whose breed Becky couldn’t remember, but is apparently “around four-years-old”.

Their favourite activity is to go walking, which they do every week day in Docklands Park – their home turf just a few metres from the Watergate building where they live.

On weekends they like to venture further from home, but the pair aren’t hard to please – the kind of dogs that get wildly excited to anything said in a high-pitched voice, even though they really have no idea what is going on.
