Dog-gone!

We recently came across this small but special cemetery near the town of Corrigin in the WA Wheatbelt….

You guessed right – it celebrates the special bond between dogs and their human families.

Lots of love and quite a bit of quirkiness has gone into these final resting places, and a local resident has voluntarily maintained the cemetery sinceĀ 1974.

Corrigin is also famous for holding the world record for the Most Dogs in Utes they can parade through the town – 1527 currently. For our American readers, a ute is short for utility, and is the Aussie lingo for a pick-upĀ truck.
Funds raised are donated to the fabulous Royal Flying Doctor Service and other local charities.
So a fabulous doggie town… we’ll let you know when the next parade is on!
