Mr Darcy's Diary

On Saturday 7th September, Mum and I (probably not Miss Bennett) are going to Vote. I don’t really know what that means, but I think it means I get to go on a lead and visit a School where there are lots of lovely people who think I am famous and want to pat me. They know Mum too and they always say “hello Koala Woman”. I don’t know why they don’t call her Mum like I do, but perhaps they don’t...
I have been watching a lot of TV lately and last week there was a terrific program about these HUGE animals and Mum said they were elephants. They make a really lovely sound and that made me look at that big box, which I now know is a TV. Miss Bennett doesn’t watch, but she does plant trees as you know. Anyway Mum said, time for me and all the dogs of Australia to join the Koala Army. There is...
Hi everyone, I have been very busy with Save the Koala Day planning and hoping that you might like to help the Koalas by having a Donation Box at your office , or even have a party so that you can raise money for Mum’s work. I will personally promise to help Rose put the box in an envelope to send to you. I am very good at helping when I come to the office. Even though I haven’t been as much...
Remember last time I wrote that Miss Bennett was helping with the tree planting, well, have a look at her – doesn’t she look clever? and look at all the beautiful trees Jono planted at Quinlans. We also put up some boots so that little birds can have their babies in them. I am sorry I cannot write anymore because, well, it is just so incredibly busy. We have to recruit more dogs for the Koala...
Gosh I think Miss Bennett is getting too big for her boots and she should put them up on the trees at Quinlans (see Mum’s Diary) . You know how I always walk beside Mum in the bush and at Quinlans. Well…… well, Miss Bennett sometimes goes off completely on her own. I know, I know you think I am dobbing on her, and I suppose I am but honestly! She could be killed by a snake and guess what we...
Boy have I been busy, sorry I haven’t been writing. Miss Bennett takes up a lot of my time. This last week we all got into a lot of trouble because Miss Bennett, who loves gardening shredded a whole lot of Mum’s plants while she was at work. You know how you feel guilty when one person gets into trouble and you know that you could have stopped them. That’s how Time, Polly and I felt. Miss Bennett...
Mum said I am very clever because I am teaching Miss Bennett everything I know and that means I am very smart. Mum said that, not me! Yesterday 3 big cockatoos came into our backyard and I “told” Miss Bennett to just sit quietly and watch them. I can’t say things like “that’s Mummy’s Mr. Darcy”, which is what Mum used to say to me, but I just sort of sat there with her and she got what I meant. I...
Quinlans was just fantastic and Miss Bennett (who you can see is on a lead) and I saw the cows on our front paddock. They are there to eat all the grass and also fertilize the paddock for us to grow our Bush Tucker in the future. Miss Bennett was very bossy with them and Mum said “no”, quite a few times. We were there for nearly 5 days and it rained and rained and rained and rained and like...
Mum said Miss Bennett is allowed to come to Quinlans for our strategic planning meeting (whatever that is). That means I get to show her everything including the billabong at the front gate. She is going to love that because Miss Bennett is half golden retriever (I am a full golden retriever) and she just loves water like me. Mum said she is also half Marema which is a big dog that likes to look...
Miss Bennett and I having a bath and this was her first time ever.
