I can’t figure how I missed the audition for this film. Seriously. I can really work with dancers. I’ll get in the water! Large quadripeds love me….oh well.

How do you put a value on beauty, inspired by a woman’s story of her past? I haven’t told anyone my story, yet, but luckily this woman told someone. And she told a talented portrait painter (why waste anything) to boot. One who has a great imagination, great empathy.

OMG if you’re near Sydney read this! If I could I would start doing the dog paddle over there right now!!

75 minutes, uninterrupted listening to this man!

Sometimes I wish I were not quite so small…

I’ve always wanted some red shoes. The only ones I’ve seen for dogs are rubber rain boots which are butt-ugly and – the smell! Besides, I don’t go out when it’s raining, but for a moment. However, I will take any worn out red shoes you have that need some chewing.

The Australian Ballet’s Behind Ballet Blog has an engaging article on RED SHOES.



When Daisy Deporter was first adopted she had lots of issues.

Yet, she learned to calm down, even when bumping into rabbits while out walking.

Moreover, she can now just hang out.

Relaxed or what.

Just take over the furniture already.

See this at MEN ON POINTE at The Australian Ballet.

The more used pointe shoes, the more for poodles to chew on.
