I've made it to Melbourne with the boyfriend and we're doing.. okay.
Neither of us have managed to find anyone to hire us (which should be okay for a couple more weeks), so my buns and my bird are still being babysat by my mum.
We're in a share house... our neighbour in the next room hates everything and the dog here isn't very well socialised so I haven't managed to get photos of him yet.
I have got volunteer work in a Dog Daycare Centre (which is awesome. I'm going to ask my boss if I can bring my camera in to take photos), and Melbourne has A LOT of opportunity for photo taking (if you know where to look).
It's just a matter of organising the days I'm applying for jobs and the days I want to relax.
The Melbourne Pet and Animal Expo was great!
Though, I wish it was outdoors since I haven't taken photos of animals in such little light before... it was a challenge and I enjoyed it.
The daycare centre I started at today has a number of different dogs staying there.
I remember the names of eleven (which I think is pretty good for my first day ;D):
Bruce the Pug, has the strangest personality I've seen since moving away from the Shih-Tzus, and it's absolutely adorable.
Rocket the Boston Terrier, demands you play tug of war with him.
Lionel the Great Dane x Wolfhound, reminds me of my never forgotten Luna (he is an absolute pleasure).
Foots the Border Collie, will bark until you throw a toy INTO his mouth (if it lands on the ground he will bark some more)... he also likes to attack traffic light buttons.
RJ the Staffy, is a beautiful blue colour and likes to stir everyone up by headbutting them while he has toys in his mouth (he also cries like a little girl when he isn't getting attention).
Alfie the Bulldog, likes to tip water buckets over just so he can play with the tap as you refill them.
Barkley the Bulldog, likes to hump his friends.
Charlie the Bulldog, apparently is very dog aggressive (but he is sooo cute).
Scooby the Beagle, LOVES having a blow dryer pointed at him.
Winter the white German Shepherd (possible cross), just wants you to throw toys... as long as no other dog will get upset.
and Pedo the Cavoodle plays a mean game of hide-and-seek.
