“The Tragedy Of My Life Is That I’m So Adorable.”

Think it’s easy being a Koala? Sleeping and munching eucalyptus 24/7? Hear all about the life of a Koala..from someone who would know best…..a Koala.

Say, Em, Er, Mate?

ResQte Of The Week III: Cocker Spaniels!

Cocker-Spaniel-Puppies-027You might remember last month, an Australian photographer by the name of Patrick Jones sent us some outstanding shots from RSPCA New South Wales. Now he’s back with another set– and this time, it’s ALL Cocker Spaniels! Winston, Dexter, Lincoln, Fanta, Floss, Finni and Fena.

No, we don’t know who is who. Not that it matters- they’re all ADORBS.

Wombat Wednesday: Interview With The Wombat

GDAY2CUTEOVERLOAD2PatC.O. presents an EXCLUSIVE interview with Patrick, Australia’s #1 Wombat!

Patrick- tell us about your daily routine. What’s your day like?

“Being the Godfather of the Wombats, I have to keep myself in great shape so I eat plenty of fresh greens and loads of carrots and eat my daily grains. I’m not too keen on exercise so I get pushed about in a wheelbarrow alot of the time.”

Who do you like to hang with?

“My neighbours are a fab family of Wombats which include a Mamma, a Dadda and a wee baby Wom. The kid often looks to me for Wombie Advice, which I always say ‘be nice to visitors…don’t bite! And dig really big holes so the keepers have something to do….we have to keep them in a job!'”

Big famous guy like you- bet you get tons of fan mail. Do you have a girlfriend?

“Being the Wombassador of Ballarat I have a busy schedule saying hi to visitors and often meeting VIP’S, which includes Nicholas Cage, Kirstie Alley, Jerry Lewis and most recently Phil Ligget. I have been on TV lots too, so I don’t have time for a girlfriend.”

Did you ever get to meet the late legendary Steve Irwin?

“I never personally met Steve Irwin, however my Dad, Greg Parker who owns the park knew him.”

Anything else you’d like to mention?

“I will be 30 in August and I am looking forward to the celebrations. Big Bucky Tooth kisses XOXOXO to all my fans! I’m off for a snooze now, as I have to keep up on my beauty sleep!”


Special thanks to Patrick’s pals Julia L. and Jared M.

Do The Didgeridoo (Concert In The Park)

Wikipedia: “The Didgeridoo (/ˌdɪdʒəriːˈduː/) (also known as a didjeridu) is a wind instrument developed by Indigenous Australians of northern Australia potentially within the last 1,500 years and still in widespread use today both in Australia and around the world. It is sometimes described as a natural wooden trumpet or “drone pipe.” Musicologists classify it as a brass aerophone.”

See what you learn on this site? (Reminds you of this clip.) Now that we’re clear on that- watch this guy- er, Do The Didgeridoo. The cows approve.
