From Tassie with love

Docklands dogs Zoe (right) and Jemma (left) moved here from Tasmania five years ago and couldn’t he happier about it.

According to owner Leita Snow, the animals just love the Docklands lifestyle – people watching, walkies and meeting the neighbours.

Leita said the dogs got out for a walk at least daily and felt right at home in Melbourne’s premier waterside suburb.

Leita and her husband raised their family in Hobart but when their children Nathan, 36, and Natasha, 34, moved to Melbourne they decided to follow.

They had a year in the suburbs before moving into the Conder tower at NewQuay five years ago.

“It’s just beautiful here, we love it,” she said.  “It’s so close to everything.  I even ride my bike to work.”

In between baby-sitting grand-children, Leita works part-time at the Royal Melbourne Hospital.  She looks after her four grand-kids on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.

Of course her other “children” are Maltese-shih tzu Zoe, 6, and Chihuahua-terrier Jemma, 8.

She says the dogs have fitted in with Docklands and just love going for walks.  And walking is good for Leita too.

“You always meet people and stop and chat when you have dogs,” she said.

She said apartment living was great for the animals and the Conder had a nice grassed area where the dogs also love to run around.
