From the number of books about animals checked in and out of the library, we know a lot of you out there have pets that you love. A lot of us in here do too. Welcome to Part 2 of our Library Pets feature, and allow us to introduce Little Bot.
Little Bot focused on the telly
Name: Little Bot
Breed: River Murray short necked tortoise
Owner: Symon (Library Officer – Programmes)
Favourite pastime: Swimming, eating, and watching television
Favourite food: Mealworms – he loves crunching them
Most notorious deed: Little Bot has a thing for blondes (or maybe just the colour yellow) he gets very hyperactive when anything yellow is near the tank. As you can imagine when the Simpsons is on TV he gets very excited.
Pet peeve: He hates the water flow from his filter and often moves it away.
Obsession: Television – whenever the TV is on he’s in the corner nearest watching!
From the number of books about animals checked in and out of the library, we know a lot of you out there have pets that you love. A lot of us in here do too. So, inspired by the Wine Dogs books, calendars and website, we thought we’d introduce a regular feature here at Off The Shelf: Library Pets.
Denzi and Lucy
Names: Denzi (left, male) and Lucy (right, female)
Ages: Denzi = 16 years, Lucy = 17 years
Owner: Dawn (Tech Services Supervisor)
Relationship: Like an old married couple
Favourite pastime: sleeping, eating (cooked chicken, beef, lamb of human grade and quality – dog meat or canned food barely rates a sniff) and more sleeping.
Most notorious deed: Denzi’s was grabbing a brown snake in his mouth by the tail (in the garden) and shaking it from side to side.
Lucy’s was when she decided to take off for a walk by herself up the road when it was dark (she can’t see too well any more) when the gate was accidentally left open. Hard to find a black dog in the dark!
