Macey is the mini bull terrier who looks like butter wouldn’t melt in her mouth. Yet when she was attending puppy school, she was the first in her class to be put in the naughty corner. Her crime? Playing too much. She’s turning two this month and her humans, Steve Velardi and Alex Colesworthy, from Frankston, have had a bundle of laughs ever since she joined their family. 

“After a lot of convincing for a dog, Steve finally said ‘Yes’,” said Alex. “Steve had a bull terrier as his first ever dog and always liked them. We went to a couple of dog shows and we decided to get a mini. She is such a funny dog, unlike any that we have experienced, and definitely one of the cheekiest breeds.”

Bull terriers are often known to be stubborn dogs with a lazy bone or two, and despite being a mini version, it appears Macey has the full dose. She often dawdles during her walks and makes her parents wait like the queen she is. You see, Macey deems it necessary to lay down and have a rest even if they’re only five minutes into the walk, so there is zero chance that she’s exhausted already. It’s short-lived, but only if she happens to spy a fellow furry friend, a potential for pats from a stranger walking by or if her human parents throw an attractive-looking stick. Then she’s up and acting like it never happened. However, if Steve and Alex are taking their sweet time getting ready for a morning walk, Macey will let out a big “Awwoooo” to not only tell them off for their disgraceful behaviour but to make them hurry up. Did someone say ‘diva’? 

Recently she’s taken up an interest in attempting to – let’s say – juggle. Macey adores her toys and often ventures to her toy box and proceeds to grab all her goodies out of the box and run around the backyard like a crazy puppy, throwing them all up in the air. 

As for food, she’s an avid seafood-lover, especially in the morning when she gets sardines for breakfast. The smelly food must be eaten outside, yet Macey refuses to set foot outside until Steve and Alex have shown her the tin. After dinner, there’s no after-dinner mints in sight; instead she prefers dental treats. In fact, she runs straight inside to her bed and sits waiting for it – somewhat patiently. If her owners don’t tend to her fast enough, she sighs and sets out to see what is taking so long. 

“She’s the funniest dog,” said Alex. “She’s so full of energy.”

It was her first visit to the beach as a puppy that provided her new mum and dad with the scariest moment. Alex had carried her out in the water a little past where the waves were breaking so she could try paddling. But as Alex put her down, a little wave came and swept her up and carried her to the shore. At first the pair were quite shocked and worried, but she’d enjoyed her effortless swim and ran straight to Steve looking very pleased with herself, and perhaps happy to be out of the water.
