Pet’s Corner - Dec 17/Jan 18 Image

A good day for a walk

By Karina Schulz Wharwood

Temporary resident in Docklands, Carman Adams and her dog Talia where on a long walk along the pier when we ran into them.

“We’ve been walking for an hour and a half at this point,” Carmen said, while Talia seemed ready to continue.

Originally owned by her ex-partner, the American Staffy now lives with Carmen.

“She is like me, very friendly, affectionate and loves cuddles but if she can feel that someone is scared of her, she will growl at them,” she said.

With a passion for hunting birds, Talia is often distracted on their walks.

“As long as she is with me and gets walked, she doesn’t mind where she is,” she said.

Having lived both in the suburbs and in the city, and being adaptable to any situation, Talia loves people and seems happier taking her walks in the city.

While they came together later on in life, their bond is strong and Carmen sees her as “her baby” rather than just a pet.
