Meet Clara, the pub dog
Clara the mini groodle loves being around people and will eat “literally anything”.
Clara’s owner, Rhiannon Caynes, said she was from a breeder near Bathurst.
“She loves loves LOVES being around people. She likes to be as close to us as possible so will literally lie on top of us to snuggle on the couch,” she said.
“She is also very food orientated and will pull us into the local pet shops any time we are walking past because she usually gets a treat from them.
“She will eat literally anything. We had to train her early on not to eat food from the street or dead animals, but she loves cheese the most.”
Clara has grown accustomed to apartment life considering there is so much green space and tree-lined space in North Melbourne.
“In saying that it has definitely changed our daily lives - we have to make sure she gets a walk morning and night and can’t rush out to social events straight after work anymore,” Ms Caynes said.
Clara has a particular place she likes to hang out.
“She loves nothing more than going up to one of the local dog friendly pubs when we go for drinks with friends after work,” Ms Caynes said.
“North Melbourne is a great suburb to own a dog. There are heaps of off lead areas and it’s so nice being able to walk under plenty of shade on the tree-lined streets. “There are also heaps of great dog-friendly businesses to enjoy. You don’t have to really leave the dog at home, she comes with us most places now!” •
