Pet’s Corner - October 2011

Docklands’ canine royalty

Say hello to John Jackson’s little princes Harry and Willy.

These precious pooches have the run of Docklands and can be seen out and about whenever the weather is fine.

The two-year-old Maltese shih-tzu cross puppies are walked more than most Docklands doggies because John is retired.

John has previously lived in San Francisco and Turin but says Docklands compares favourably with the best places to live in the world.

But he admits he was skeptical before actually living here.  

“It will still take time to fully develop. But how good is it living here?” he said.  “You don’t need a car and it’s just beautiful to be on the water.”

John is becoming more involved in the local community and is on the owners’ corporation of the Merchant building in Bourke St.

John describes his puppies as loving and playful.

“The smaller one, Harry, is the boss,” he said.  “But they both drive me crazy inside the apartment.”

“I walk them five times a day if the weather is favourable,” he said.

    I no these dogs personally and they are truly beautiful and once more they are Collingwood supporters and they will be spending the Grand Final day with my family.

    Just a beautiful picture.
