Teena, Doggie Perfume, Art and Whimsy


On a blustery and rainy Sunday, we went to the Museum of Contemporary Art at The Rocks. I love this place; it is eclectic, ever-changing and has magnificent views over the harbour from the rooftop café. I met some friends, and we were excited about attending Teena the dog’s farewell from the exhibition space. Teena, the daschund, even has her own perfume! It smells of wet dog, in homage to this precious little being.

Teena’s dad, David Capra, interviewed a lady from mindDog Australia, and she was awe-inspiring! Sydney-based, this organization advocates for people with depression, PTSD and other challenges to be matched with a companion dog. It makes all the difference to the individuals involved.

We also went to Grayson Perry’s My Pretty Little Art Career . I found it mesmerizing. The detail in each of the pieces is extraordinary! What a remarkable and gifted artist Grayson is. There is still time to go see the exhibition, before it closes on the 1st May.

There has been a bit of outrage about the proposed Australian $5.00 note. This is what we are getting.


This is what many of us would prefer.

Dame Edna Everage, a pie and beer.
Dame Edna Everage, pies and beer. Which one do you prefer?

Whimsy is an essential component in leading a tolerable life. May your week contain much whimsy!

      1. Not sure they have a scheme like it in the UK. We have assistance dogs but as I’m in a bungalow and the garden size is therefore limited I don’t have a big enough run to supposedly let it out & in from 😦 would be good to raise an alarm grab phone etc so for me would be ideal but gutted 😥 x


      2. Maybe put the call out to see if anyone knows of an organisation in the UK? I didn’t know about these wonderful people until yesterday. It can be hard to source smaller groups.
