I know, I know, in Australia kangaroos hop down the street… and well, here they sometimes do but I’ve never had one in the backyard before.
Rule 1: Dogs and kangaroos don’t mix.
Luckily the dog that can jump to the moon stopped after I yelled at her a lot. The other one would not, and could not, stop himself. Luckily Skippy jumped over the side fence and the non-jumping dog decided to just boing up and down instead of taking the leap.
Skippy last seen heading up the street and hopefully to freedom.
I have no photos of the actual event because you can’t stop to take photos of a potential disaster. These ones are from the Look Mama archives.
If the dogs ever stop yipping and whining and sniffing each other I might let them out again.
Right, I’m off to clean up the garden. Broken plants and scattered furniture everywhere!
