Guard dog on patrol


The image shows a fierce rocket-propelled rodent giving the eye to a couple of 'roos taking some green pick off our lawn on 5 April. Had sound been connected to the image you would be going a bit deaf by now, as she was also giving it some mouth.

There was nearly a repeat performance on 6 April. To protect our ear-drums I went on to the deck to throw a small branch (kept there for the purpose) at the roo. Not only did this not scare the roo away but the miserable marsupial hopped over to the branch - which had landed about 3m in front of it and sniffed it to see if it was edible!

The resultant roars of laughter scared it off.
