The New Local Sorrento Resident….. Have you seen him?

By now, because of the news, radio and social media I’m sure you have either seen or heard about the new local resident on Sorrento Beach.

For the past 2 days there has been a 3 and a half metre, 2 tonne elephant Seal sunbathing on Sorrento Beach.

This huge mammal has caused chaos on the roads with cars everywhere and traffic bumper to bumper with people of all ages trying to get a look at the big boy.

Usually found in the Antarctic the seal is a long way from home and experts have said that it is unusual for it to be here but not rare as they can sometimes be found on the beaches between Albany and Esperence.

People please remember that it is a wild animal, and we don’t want to stress it out by getting too close and just letting it do what everyone else does at the beach, relax and enjoy himself.

Saying Goodbye to a family’s best friend Spot after 16 years of doggy love

Sadly on Tuesday my husband Mike and I had to say goodbye to our family dog Spot of 16 years. As sad as it was, it really was time for him to go as he was getting too old to do anything for himself and we did not want to see him suffer any longer.

When the kids, Merv and Nikky were growing up he was their best friend and we all loved him dearly. He was a Kelpie Crossed something and we think it was Bully because of the pink nose but still unsure to this day. But it didn’t matter to us as we loved him anyway.

For the past 10 years he has lived with my son Merv and girlfriend Toni and gained brothers in other dogs Diesel and Micro. Merv & Toni went away 6 months ago and Spot came back to the family home with Diesel until they were to return but unfortunately Spot did not make it.

His best mate Diesel will miss him but is getting walked daily and will get some extra love and I think he understands that he is now alone.

Spot loved running, going for walks (sometimes by himself), going to Sorrento beach (also by himself), hanging out with Mike and the kids and playing with other dogs.

He was a lot of fun and has left a lot of memories behind and will be missed dearly by all of us.
