Rosser Park

Today we took Chilli on an outing to Rosser Park, otherwise known as the Gold Coast Botanical Gardens. It’s nice that they’ve always had a dog park attached, as it’s a really convenient location for us to take Chilli for some exercise off the leash.

Despite her old age, she had a ball of a day. Running a few times, but mostly just jogging along and examining every smell she could.

When we got home she even posed for some photos in ‘the studio’, which is rare for her as she usually doesn’t let me take photos of her. She must have felt really confident.


Later that afternoon we had a brief adrenalin surge with a snake that was sunning itself in the backyard and for the most part seemed very curious with us and had the doors not been closed, might have liked to come inside. Mum seemed to think it was just a tree snake and non-venemous, despite it looking very “yellow bellied black”, a phrase that generally means danger!
