Pets Corner

Hugo and Roger were all smiles during their walk to the Botanic Gardens.

Margie adopted Hugo (left) from the RSPCA as a puppy. When he first came home with Margie he was very shy, but now at four years old he is a very happy and confident dog.

Hugo’s favourite thing to do is go for a walk with his best friend Roger (right). Roger belongs to Margie’s nephew, but whenever Margie and Hugo go for a walk to the park, they pick up Roger on the way.

Both Hugo and Roger are Maltese-Shih Tzu crosses. Margie thinks that Roger is more Shih Tzu than Maltese because of the black spots on his coat. Roger might be bigger than Hugo, but he is actually the baby of the pair at 19 months old.

Margie said the two boys were always very excited to go for a walk together, but she had to be careful to keep an eye on them because they were also very cheeky.

“I have to keep a hold of their leads, because otherwise they will try to run away in every direction,” she said.

Hugo and Roger make sure they check out all their favourite spots at the Botanic Gardens before they head home again.
