Audrey the Mini Dachshund Explores Como House in South Yarra
I first met Audrey, the gorgeous red mini dachshund puppy, at the North Melbourne Spring Fling Festival. Her big, floppy ears were waving in the wind, threatening to blow that miniature body attached right up into the air. I squeaked as soon as I saw her and immediately left Johnny to man the stall so that I could go get my snuggles on!
Como House, South Yarra
A few months later, we spent our session at Como House in South Yarra, wandering through the beautifully manicured gardens around the glamourous historic mansion. Built in 1847, Como House is an "intriguing mix of Australian Regency and classic Italianate architecture" [from Como House website] and it seemed like the perfect location for this little lady.
Audrey adores her Mum, Lilly, and couldn't resist planting a great big smooch on her lips when Lilly picked her up for a cuddle. That's some serious loving!
"Her big, brown eyes make every one melt. This inevitably means that we let her get away with everything! She loves kisses and cuddles, and I love her to bits and pieces!"
"Audrey is my little bootylicious & bellylicious beautiful girl. On our walks, she likes to say hi to every person we meet. She immediately roll over for a belly rub or two!"
I'd definitely recommend a trip to Como House with your furkids. The grounds were surprisingly quiet and peaceful, given that we were in the middle of South Yarra and only a 10 minute drive from Melbourne CBD. Despite the fact that it was a beautifully warm Saturday, the lush gardens were not busy. As we walked around, we passed only a handful of small groups of friends, lazing and laughing in the sun, delicious picnics sprawled around them. A pretty perfect afternoon for a pretty perfect little puppy!
