Poncho, a handsome Maltese Bichon with a beautiful pink nose and attractive tinges of pink throughout his coat, was a delightful, devoted dog who enjoyed a full and social time. He lived a life of luxury in a penthouse apartment in an inner Melbourne suburb. Sadly at the grand old age of 15 1/2 years he died on Friday night in the arms of his adoring owner Jennie.
He was a friendly personality and liked to spend his days greeting canine guests who stayed with their owners at the pet friendly Birches Apartments in East Melbourne. www.birches.com.au
I met him in May 2008 and had great fun taking his photos first at his penthouse with the city in the background and then at the beautiful Fitzroy Gardens with its glorious autumnal colour. He was a delightful character and he enriched the lives of many. May he rest in peace and live on in the memories of these photos.
