“Our delightful (and patient) office dog Indie, a Shih Tzu/Terrier cross, wishes all her American cousins a Happy 4th of July! (To be honest, she wasn’t that into it until we mentioned…hot dog eating competitions and then her interest was immediately peaked!) Have a wonderful day! -Danielle G., Brisbane Australia.
Australian photographer Patrick Jones has been kind enough to send C.O. some terrific shots (here and here.) He works for RSPCA NSW (an Australian not-for-profit animal welfare organization) as a graphic designer.
Patrick’s site says Rainy was having some health issues but is much better now, and all her little guys have found homes!
Terrific video here from the folks at Symbio Wildlife Park as seen on BuzzFeed. Their article says this is the first time the two have ever met
nose to nose face to face; the little guy/girl was born about 6.5 months ago, and spend all that time in the pouch. Welcome, lil’ mate!

It is hard to keep up with Eimear. When last we saw her, she was hangin’ out in Bali with the monkeys.
Now she’s back home in Australia, and- well, what do they have a lot of in Australia? (Besides Wombats, Koalas, and Zombie Spiders the size of a 1972 Ford LTD Wagon. Right! -Kangaroos!)
As before, her travels are chronicled here, and her blog comments about each photo below are in the hovers.
“This is probably getting a bit ridiculous (I’ve got that Pokemon mentality with petting unusual animals – GOTTA PET ‘EM ALL) but today I petted some Kangaroos,” she tells us.
“They are so so so cute, a cross between a bunny and a cow, I think.” [A bunny….and a cow. A BUNNY…AND….A COW. Hmmmm. -Ed.]
“They chew on the grass like cows but they hop like bunnies and have bunny teeth. And they’re super soft.”
(*Thought about a Men At Work “Lamb from Down Undah” thing but couldn’t make it work, sorry.)
Ella sent us this FANTASTIC GIF she found on Imgur. “Just what you’d expect of a lamb – wobbly goodness.” Well, the hoomin looked familiar- that’s Pam Ahern of Edgar’s Mission. (Plus, you can see it on her cap.) So we rang up our mate Down Undah, Kyle B., and he told us that the Lambster in question was none other than Peter Pan. (Who we featured almost two years ago!)
A rather physically imposing ‘Roo has decided to hang out in a Brisbane, Australia neighborhood. Crickey!
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.
