Mr Darcy's Diary

Hi everyone, Do you know what, I can finally tell you who our new family member is! It's a donkey!... Well, SHE is a donkey. I have a donkey sister! Her name is Lulu. But, her stage name is Matilda, and her and Mum are hitting the road on June 6 to spread the word about the Koala Protection Act. vote1matilda.com I'm a bit jealous that she gets to go, but I will look after the house while mum's...
Hi everyone! So excited - mum was interviewed on the TV news on Saturday night and on ABC radio this morning with Steve Austin - I was home so I could hear it. She was talking about the 80% Koala decline in Queensland and you can listen in on the News and Events page. Go Mum!
Hello everyone, No-one has guessed what our new family member is and that is a good thing because it is absolutely top secret. I know that secret though and in a few weeks, I am going to tell you! Over and out, Mr Darcy
Guess what! We got a new friend at home today and her name is Lulu... I am going to get you to guess what she is – her kind begins with a CAPITAL D! Write to knelson @savethekoala.com here with your guess, age and mailing address by Friday 12th of February and I will send all correct entries* an adorable sticker set! *Only available to Australian residents. **Your email address will be added to...
At last it is holidays. Mum has been talking about this for ABSOLUTELY AGES and now we get to spend time with Mum, not just at Quinlans, but at home. Mum said EVERYONE in our family is getting a new collar. I am allowed to choose mine. Either Red, Black or Blue. I am thinking Blue, but I will let you know. Mum said it is time for a new photos on the website because I am not a puppy anymore so you...
If I could Tweet like Mum ( follow her on Twitter here ), then I would say "How can Charlie think this is mature?"
Hi everyone, Guess what! Charlie is 1 - can you believe it. I found him writing (yes writing) to his birth mother, Gidget. Turns out I've been teaching him more than just how to be kind to wildlife! Thank goodness he did not call her Mum. Because our Mum is Mum and better still she is the Koala Woman and guess what - she mentioned me on page 25 of her latest book - Koala Stories. I was her...
Hi everyone, Well, I thought I was the only writer in the family, but turns out I was wrong! Mum’s released her very first book, and it’s really, really good! It's called Koala Stories , and it has all sorts of information in it about Koalas and the trouble that they are in. I think it will help to spread the word so people can be kind of Koalas like I am. I actually sat next to Mum quietly while...
OK - I know he looks cute. Everyone says so, but honestly if you saw him chasing the chickens around our garden you would ABSOLUTELY be shocked at his behaviour. When I was little I used to listen to Mum when she said "no Mr. Darcy", but truly, Charlie; well he is so naughty. It just shows that it takes a lot to train a dog not to run after things. Miss Bennett seems to be on top of it all and he...
Happy Save The Koala Day everyone! Mum said she was off to visit some Koalas at Lone Pine to celebrate. She gave me a stern look on the way out because I snapped at Charlie. I've decided I'll be good today, because it really means a lot to Mum. And I have to teach Charlie to be kind to all animals (including other Dogs), and especially Koalas. I was actually watching a Cobra versus a Meerkat last...
