Mr Darcy's Diary

I have had a great Christmas and summer holidays and my new companion and I have hit it off from Day 1. Mum said I am just a "lovely boy" and that I have learnt everything about teaching from my Grandpa - you remember him, his name was Dane and Mum said I could wear his Christmas collar. Big shoes to fill, but I don't wear it on my feet, I wear it on my neck.
At our house which Mum says is our home there is this huge big picture thing and every day when Mum says “come on Mr. Darcy, let us watch the news”, all sorts of things come in to our lounge room. It is amazing really and I haven’t really taken much notice of it until now because I have been too busy saving Koalas with Mum. Last week, there was this great thing which showed a lovely dog (I am a...
I know, I know, I am always talking about snakes and today is no exception. When we went to bed last night a little snake got caught on the door of our bedroom and Mum had to get my friend Bill to come and get him this morning. That meant we got to have a sleep over on the verandah and we could see Mum. Usually when we are in the garage we cannot see her. It was a little scary being in the dark,...
Quinlan’s. Well, you know I love Quinlan’s and even though I am still a little bit scared, I want to tell you a story. You have to promise that after I tell you, that you will still love Quinlan’s because snakes mustn’t make us too scared, we all have to be brave. Well, Mum and I went to Quinlan’s the other day because Jono, Banjo and Dylan are all there making Quinlan’s even more beautiful, and...
Save the Koala Month is nearly over and boy have I been busy. Sending out donation boxes, getting ticks (I had 7 one day) and watching a bird that lives at our place make a HuuuuGGGGGeeeee nest. We call him Mr. Reg and there is a Miss Reg. Mum said they want to get married and he has to build a HUUUUUGGGGEEEE nest to make her marry him and have babies. I spend a lot of my time watching him...
Yesterday I gave a paper at a famous Zoo Conference and I told everyone about how I write for PETS Magazine and that I have a Blog and that I write about being a good boy and never chase wildlife and that I am very special and that I think I am really cool. Oh dear, I think my little ego is getting a little out of control. That isn't actually quite true, it was actually Mum who gave the...
Board meeting today, so I am very busy. It is our busiest time of the year. I just had to go out for a quick walk and met some lovely girls from John Paul College who just thought I was adorable. They were the Blue Team on an Amazing Race around Brisbane. Mum says that is sometimes on TV, but I think this was a School one. Mum has talked at John Paul College in the past. They love koalas. ( I...
OK Mum is back and she told me that I am going to be very very busy over the next couple of months and guess what I will be two years old in October. She said I am starting to look like a DOG, not a PUPPY. I still feel like a puppy and I still tear up teddies, but not quite as many as I usually do when Mum is away. I learnt a whole lot of new tricks from my newest friends Hannah and Nick. They...
Mum is away and we miss her very much. I want her to come home but she says she is learning a lot about how to protect the Koalas in Victoria and South Australia. How can people not want to protect all koalas - that is like saying that you can be nasty to some Golden Retrievers and not others. Hmmm... Anyway, I have missed writing to you, but I just had to say that Mum will be home soon and Frank...
Mum said I have to tell you what happened at Quinlan’s at the Bush Tucker Lunch last weekend. When Mum saw me with a piece of chicken on a big metal stick that should have gone into the Pizza Oven, not my mouth, I told a “fib”. I said it was my best friend Jock who had taken it and he gave it to me. I had invited Jock and Sacha to lunch. They came with their human parents and we all had a great...
