Southbank’s own ambassador

Early on a rainy morning, we caught up with toy poodle Bolli and his owner Inge Johnston.

This morning they were hurrying towards the CBD to Bolli’s appointment with the hairdresser.

“He is my first ever pet. I did a lot of research before deciding to go for a toy poodle. He is the perfect size for apartment living,” Inge said.

“When I first saw him, I took one look at him and fell in love straight away. We have been living happily together for the past 10 years,” she continued.

Perching in his very own bag, Bolli keeps a watchful eye on anyone who walks by, with his fluffy head being the only part of him exposed to the rain.

They returned to Southbank after visiting Tasmania.

“The flight was a bit hard because we got delayed, so in the end Bolli spent six hours in his cage. So today he will get pampered a bit, and hopefully will get over the stressful experience,” Inge told us.

However, when asked about her favourite trait in Bolli, there was no hesitation before she answered.

“Everything he does is so loving. He is one of the most social dogs I have ever met. He will greet everyone with trust and kindness, he really should be an ambassador,” Inge explained.
