Ella, the Docklands dream dog

Ella loves her view of Docklands.  

When not wrestling with her array of soft toys or going for walkies to South Wharf, she is staring out the window.

The 18-month-year-old pure shih-tzu is the prized puppy of Christopher and Tamara Tobing who have lived at Victoria Point for five years.  The siblings were one of the building’s first tenants.

The Tobings love Docklands because it so convenient to public transport and major roads.

Tamara said Ella was a very good dog.

“She doesn’t bark much, which is great for apartment living,” Tamara said.

Tamara said Ella failed to differentiate between real dogs and those appearing on their TV screen.  “She jumps up at the screen when other dogs come on,” she said.  “She thinks they are in the room.”

Ella gets walked daily (weather permitting) over to the exhibition centre at South Wharf where she wears herself out chasing seagulls.

And while bold with the seagulls, she is generally shy with other dogs – particularly if the other dogs are outgoing.

“She likes to hang out with other shih-tzus,” Tamara said. “But she is generally good when we put her into dog care when we go away.”

Ella can’t decided whether her favourite pet is the lamb she generally drags around the apartment with her, or the “doggie toy” which plays music when squeezed.

Either way, Ella is a fun-loving pet who brings a lot of joy into the life of her owners.
