I was moved by a recent Quote by The BootCo. Brisbane’s current Queensland Leather Boy (QLB) 2016 and I have decided to share this on my blog. Firstly I would like to thank Timothy Roberts for his thoughtful and well written words after the tragic events that have occurred in Orlando.
Tragedy Has Struck
I write this knowing that the latest news reports are saying that 50 people have lost their lives and another 53 injured in America’s worst gun massacre. While it is being called an act of terror, which I do not dispute, In short it is a crime of hate. A crime against our community. A crime against our freedoms. It is an attempt to prevent us from being who we want to be and love who we want to love.
RECON – Pup Not A Secret Life
There has been much talk about the recent UK documentary about the secret life of the human pup. Whist this is currently only available in the UK, RECON has put out a short clip, with some pup play occurring in downtown Sydney. The clip demonstrates that the pup life is emerging and is not as secret as the documentary suggests. Once I am able to view the documentary I will be doing a review…
Here is a pix of me at last years Queensland Pride Fair day, the acceptance of the the kink lifestyle has certainly assisted in pups of all walks of life being able to express their pup side and lifestyles not just behind closed doors, but also in the public arena.
Many of the pups in Brisbane entered the dog show at Pride… It is truly a liberating experience.
A big thank you to Kobi Cooke for making this possible….
The Difference Between BDSM & Abuse Part I
Information Source: The BDSM Training Academy
Part I – Has been taken directly from the BDSM Training Academy Blog post – no part of the above material is my own work, however I agree with the message conveyed and support the science behind the image above. Similar materials have been used world wide when looking at abuse victims and the cycle of domestic abuse. The BDSM Cycle is what BDSM partitioners preach, only better illustrated. The comparison between the two demonstrate clearly the difference between BDSM and Abuse.
Having a comparative illustration demonstrated by the BDSM Training Academy, is a tool that allows for the reader to be informed, allowing a person not in BDSM or is new to BDSM to have an understanding of the difference between consensual and non consensual acts between adults.
Remember there is no need for abuse in an healthy BDSM relationship. In my opinion – Trust, Communication, Respect and above all love is what constitutes a healthy D/s and/or BDSM dynamic that may or may not be a partnership. Reading many case studies where the case study illustrates that they are, would be described as a vanilla partnership, experiment with BDSM practices including changing their relationship type to either M/s or D/s have reported a much stronger, healthier and trusting relationship prior to their exploration of BDSM.

Car Wash Adventure
On January 31, the boys from Boot Co. set out to help raise funds for the IML fund. Essentially this was to assist to get 13 to the Boot Black Competition and to create a fund that can be accessed by future Boot Co title holders to attend IML.
The day was heaps of fun, as the pictures below will attest to.
I assure you all the pup had a lot of fun, and really should not be in charge of the hose.
Finally I would like to thank all those that helped and volunteered, and a big shout out to Number 29 for all their support and allowing us to use their space to run the event. Also would like to thank Sir for his support and encouragement.
