Puppy love dream came true at last

MEGAN Leane's cuddly shar pei dogs are her pride and joy.

Ms Leane has wanted a shar pei pup ever since she was little. Her dream came true when she bought Sully and Honey, when they were eight weeks old.

"I never had a dog as a child. Our neighbour had shar pei dogs and I loved playing with them," she said.

"I love the rolls and they are the funkiest-looking dogs."

Honey is 13 months old while Sully is 18 months old.

They both have quite different personalities.

"Sully is your best mate, like a shadow. She loves cuddles," Ms Leane said.

"She is a big teddy, weighing 22 kilos.

"Honey loves an adventure and she runs around a lot."

Both dogs are great friends, but Ms Leane wants to give her pups some more room to play.

"We are in the process of buying an acre at Beecher for more backyard space," she said.

"We do take them to Canoe Point beach and on a walk everyday."

Ms Leane said she feeds Honey and Sully chicken skin and doggy ice blocks as treats.

"I made them a dog-approved birthday cake once," she laughed.

Sully and Honey are basically a part of the family, travelling to New South Wales with Ms Leane and her partner once.

Ms Leane said she would love to extend her family one day.

"We are hoping for puppies one day," she said.

For now she is enjoying the enjoyment her two dogs give her.

"I love their rolls. They are really quirky," she said. "And they have blue tongues."
