Wonder dachshund

By Stephanie Zhang

Wonder Woman was spotted in Docklands in disguise as a little dachshund named Lola on a walk with owner Nicholas.

Lola is a white piebald American import dachshund, and attracted many passers-by as Docklands News spoke to the pair.

Lola has many other costumes, like Batman, the Riddler, and a big woollen coat for cold days, but Nicholas says her favourite is still the Wonder Woman one.

“It grabs the most attention,” Nicholas said, “Because we live in a house full of

males, she likes female attention.”

Nicholas also said that the two sleep together, and Lola is very gentle and doesn’t bark or stink. The two go on a couple of walks a day, as Lola doesn’t like to be cooped up in their Docklands’ apartment.

“We’ve walked all the way from the city today,” Nicholas said, “For those little legs that’s a long way.” Usually, they like to walk around at Ron Barassi Park and get some

food under the Melbourne Star.

Lola will be having her first birthday in August, and the two have been together for over half a year.

As passersby stopped to pet Lola, Nicholas watched happily.

“See? She makes everybody smile,” he said.
