Albert says; my diet is working

Albert the Pug here. Long time no Woof.

My dad Ian, the head gardener, thought it was time I share my BIG achievement with you all. As you know I’m a dog that loves his food, always have, always will. But there comes a time in any Pugs life when the dreaded DIET needs to happen and that’s been my mission for the last few months. It’s not been easy but I gotta say… I am looking good 🙂

I’ve gone from 11.2 kg to 9.8kg on a strict ‘obesity management’ diet. The cheek of my Dad Ian thinking I’m obese…. but luckily I’ve still been allowed treats, even if they are carrots.

So I have a big favour to ask all you lovely people. To avoid temptation can you please take all your food rubbish away with you when you leave the park and put in the bins?!? I have some will power but not enough to stop me gobbling up any leftovers I might find. Plus my Dad is getting tired trying to clear it all up before I can get hold of it.

Right i’m off for a little workout round the park but I’ll keep you posted on my diet progress. WOOF WOOF!

Albert says – donate this Christmas

Albert the pug here, Merry Woofmas to you all!!

You’ll be pleased to hear I’m donning my Santa outfit again this year to become ‘Santa Paws’ in order to collect toys and treats for my mates at the Blue Cross charity.

Now I’m a lucky pug, as you can probably tell from my belly. I get lots and lots of nice treats, especially at Christmas. But that’s not been the case for my mates who are now being looked after by the Blue Cross.

So please give what you can to Potters Fields Park and my dad Ian who’s the head gardener. They’ll be collecting the toys and treats until the week before Christmas when I’ll personally deliver all the goodies to the local Blue Cross centre in Victoria. They can be handed to the gardeners on the park or you can contact the park office to drop off.

Thanks in advance. Ho ho ho and Merry Woofmas!!!
