BOTH DOGS HAD BROKEN TAILS
Robert John Lawson Brahe, of Leichhardt Street, Spring Hill, said the deceased used to have a room at the house where he lived. She had two dogs - a kangaroo dog with a broken tail, named Alison's Wish or Alison's Whisper; and a fox terrier with a broken tail, called Bubbles. She kept the fox terrier in her room and the kangaroo dog under the house. She said she had entered the kangaroo dog in coursing events at Kedron Park, and she appeared to have hopes of winning a prize. The dog was well enough nourished to win a race. She used to buy plenty of "'tucker", but she was frail, and appeared to be delicate. Mr. J. W. Cockings (Deputy Coroner) adjourned the hearing to a date to be fixed.
