This fellow - whose name I have forgotten was Jo's first dog - I think. My memory is hazy. Jo was always attached to a dog - and still is. She remembers the name of every single pet we ever had. I have no memory at all of some of them. Indeed I sometimes wonder where I was for many years of my children's lives. Certainly not on the same planet!!
We moved to Port Pirie and acquired a tiny black ball of fluff which Jo named Tinker. He was to be with us in Pirie, then back in Darwin and when we finally returned to South Australia. By this time we also had Mandy and we were also given a Doberman pup which we called Toby. We didn't take Toby back to Darwin for a number of reasons, but we found a good home for him in Pirie.
Back in Darwin with Tinker. Sadly Tinker was run over not long after we bought our property at Lenswood, South Australia, but the possession of 10 acres meant that we had room for lots more pets and so the saga of the Needle Menagerie began.
