It turns out that wise and distinguished look that grey haired pets possess might say more than we thought. In fact, going prematurely grey could actually give a fascinating insight into their personality…
All the canine Clooney’s out there better listen up! New research suggests that going grey early in life is strongly linked to behaviour that’s surprisingly far from cool and confident. In fact, our grey-bies are more likely than other dogs to experience anxiety with unfamiliar people, unfamiliar dogs and even loud noises like fireworks and thunderstorms.
While it’s still not clear whether it’s this stress that actually causes them to go silver, it seems there’s no doubt that those adorably suave and sophisticated silver foxes might need a little more comforting than we first thought…
But whereas most boys watched it for Han Solo or Luke Skywalker, I used to wait for the moments Princess Leia was on screen.
Princess Leia and Carrie Fisher taught me that in life, in order to be a rebel, you must give 0 fucks, kick down doors, blast any storm troopers in your way and look utterly glamorous doing so.
I got to share a stage with Carrie only a few months ago and then after the show I interviewed her. After the interview she hung around for a good half hour for a cuddle and told me stories, asked me questions about my work and kept pulling me aside to whisper secrets in my ear.
I'm not sure if I properly conveyed to her just how much I was exploding that this was actually happening but I will always remember that moment.
I love you Carrie Fisher. Forever my hero and forever my Princess. ❤️

Ok folks, we've made a big decision. Since I've been doing a terrible job of keeping up the boys account lately, we've decided this year to hand the phone over to the boys entirely to let them run their own account.😱🙈😂🐶🐶 I have no idea what they are going to be posting, but they assure me they have entertaining stuff to post. 🙈Probably just a bunch of selfies but we will soon see! Before I go I thought I'd introduce the boys properly with a personality profile of each of them. That way when they take over tomorrow they won't be able to pretend they are tough or cool because you'll already know what they are really like 😂 #embarrasingmumpost Below are their personality profiles, Comment after reading both to let us know which personality matches yours the most. #teamdazzy or #teamphilly
Darren 💙 Always silly, goofing around. 💙 Athletic but not too lean, lives a balanced life between loving running and loving carbs equally. 💙 Needy, follows Bae to all corners of the house, sitting on their lap and getting hair stroked wherever possible. Human version could be prone to serial crazy person texting without a response WHERE ARE YOU, WHO IS SHE etc etc. 💙 Social butterfly. Known as the one who can make anyone laugh, views are 'even if they are laughing at you instead of with you you don't care as long as you are being entertaining'. 💙 Big fan of the kiss hello. #personalspaceinvader 💙Selfie lover, always the first to crack the camera out at a party. 💙 Annoying (in a lovable kind of way). Has no 'off switch', annoying mode is almost always on at top level. 💙Short attention span. 💙Easily led. Human version could be prone to breaking diets in the name of a mid week dinner date. Dry July almost never exists and sticking to any kind of plan for more than a week is just a thing you only read about. 💙 A good friend, always there for a laugh and a good time, loves unconditionally.
❤️ Priorities in order of importance are Food, sleep, more food, then maybe, (only maybe) human interaction. ❤️ Sees strenuous exercise as something suckers do. Practices yoga instead. (not the hard stuff just the floor stretches and sleeping on the mat). ❤️ Reserved, sees loud people (like Darren) as immature hooligans. Prefers deep conversations if any. Avoids any small talk at all expenses. ❤️Philosophical. A thinker. Hard to get worked up about much in life. (unless it's dinner time and there's pizza.) ❤️ Known for having an intense #RBF (resting bitch face) (Human version could be known around the office to be a total snob bc you rarely ever smile. But deep down you're a really nice person, they just don't take the time to get to know you). ❤️ Selective on who touches him because mum didn't raise you to be easy. #dontkissmehelloever ❤️Knows there's a lot to be said for organic health food and wants to be that person but love for junk is just too strong. ❤️ Known among friends as the last minute canceller bc being social is way harder than eating junk food in sweatpants. ❤️ Loving, gentle and thoughtful.
4 years ago today... we remember the devastating Dunalley bushfires.
This photograph of the Holmes family hiding under a jetty from the violent bushfires was shared around the world. They also shared their extraordinary story with The Guardian. Click below for never seen before videos, interviews and stories about the day their community was devastated and the new breed of bushfire that is impossible to fight.
"The day started out as a clear and beautiful Tassie morning... but there was something else, there were no birds. At least, none that anyone could hear. No birdsong. That was odd. Eerie even. Like something was holding its breath." #Tasmania #TasmaniaGram #InstaTasmania
