Best Australian Blogs 2013 No 12B: More stories



This should be post No 13 in the Australian Writers’ Centre Best Australian Blogs 2013 competition series but little Imaginational Dabrowski would not let me use that number.
“Remember,” said the Memory Elephant “he doesn’t like the number 13 because he thinks it looks mean!”

The Memory Elephant, the Dabrowski Dogs and the Black Dogs have also been the subjects of storylines at Sprite’s Site.


The Memory Elephant is a personification of memory and the Visual Spatial Learner’s style of thinking. Some of the stories about the Memory Elephant have been gathered into a Youblisher booklet at Sprite and the Memory Elephant
You can read about the Memory Elephant at and see an animation of the Memory Elephant in action at

Memory Elephants have their own holiday celebration on 30 December


I noticed that Wistful Black Dog was sitting next to the Memory Elephant.
The Black Dogs are personifications of possible sources of depression.
Wistful is sometimes found with the Memory Elephant as he can cause depression by regretting the past.
The Black Dogs, who are all personifications of possible sources of depression, are described at and their story has been told in a Youblisher booklet


The Dabrowski Dogs feature in many of the stories. Some of them have been gathered into a Youblisher booklet Sprite and the Dabrowski Dogs.

The tale of the Dabrowski Dogs attending the Paws for Poise mobile grooming parlour is told in a Little Bird Tales book at

Another potential booklet is the series of posts about the Dabrowski Dogs solving a puzzle

The Dabrowski Dogs are not always in agreement. There is often tension between the pedantic Intellectual and the visionary dreamer Imaginational. This was very apparent in the affair of the topiary tree octopus
