Bowie – a guitar, purple couch, and one serene spoodle

Home/Cover dogs, Feature Article, The Wag, Top Dogs/Bowie – a guitar, purple couch, and one serene spoodle

A dog, a guitar and a purple couch could seem the perfect mix for a perfect disaster. That is unless your name is Bowie – the eight-month old spoodle and cover boy for September. This serene, shaggy lad seemed right at home in Superdogel Australia’s first cover shoot for Spring 2019. So much so, at times he looked like he wanted to pick up the guitar and play a few songs himself.

The Parkdale resident was originally named Merlin, when he and his brother Milo captured the eyes of his then parents-to-be, Vanessa and Morgan. But it was on their visit to the breeder’s house when he wrapped his paws around Morgan’s neck (upon being picked up). Afterwards, he trotted over to Vanessa, sat next to her and placed his head in her lap. It was at that moment that Vanessa and Morgan realised that it they whom had been chosen. Not the other way round. So Merlin became Bowie, and found his family.

David Bowie fans

Bowie’s name was obviously chosen because both Vanessa and Morgan are great fans of the late superstar. And since he’s come into Vanessa and Morgan’s home, he’s kept them entertained with his antics. His latest ‘trick’, I’m told, is drinking water from peoples’s glasses. Morgan laughs when he tells me that ‘You have to make sure you don’t leave your glass unattended. Otherwise it will be empty or have slobber all over it when you come back!’

He’s also playful – he loves to drop balls or toys at your feet to throw. He’s also extremely affectionate. When he’s not playing he loves to snuggle up next to Vanessa and Morgan on the couch and / or bed.

Their little shadow

Since coming into his parents lives, he has Vanessa and Morgan constantly laughing with his personality. He ‘talks’ but never barks, loves playing with empty loo roll cartons, and going to the beach. He also has his favourite toys – a giraffe called Fred and Spike the hedgehog.

Bowie follows Vanessa and Morgan around the house when they are there, and hates being left alone. They call him ‘their little shadow’.

Morgan tells me that his wife had wanted to get a dog for a few years, and she finally talked him into it. Since Bowie came into their lives he’s brought so much love, laughter and happiness to the home. Morgan and Vanessa love him to bits!

I have no doubt with what you are telling me, Morgan. No doubt at all!
