Odd couple enjoy waterside company

By Ed McLeish

Sometimes the clichéd phrase “opposites attract” gets thrown around.

That’s the case for Brian’s dogs; the local resident looks after odd couple Casper, a large 13-year-old groodle and Josie, a little seven-year old mixed-breed.

All three are originally from Brisbane, and while Brian said he had Casper since he was young, he said he wanted one more, so rescued Josie from the RSPCA.

Brian told Docklands News they all moved down to Melbourne a few years ago for Brian’s HR career to develop.

But, he can’t bring his canine companions to work.

“Unfortunately, we can’t all go to work together as the office won’t allow for it,” Brian said.

But while Brian’s out putting food in their bowls, he said his two differently sized dogs were a good mix.

“They’re pretty much companions – they don’t leave each other’s sights,” he said. “They keep each other busy.”

Brian said while Casper was being sensible on a grain-free kibble diet, Josie “just eats anything and everything”.

When it comes to hot spots in Docklands for walks, Brian named plenty of places he and his furry friends enjoyed.

“They like to go for walks either to the park, the Ron Barassi oval or to the library and back,” he said.

“They’re pretty relaxed living by the waterside.”
