Kangaroo Dog

Kangaroo Dog

Lou prefers to be on tables than the floor, so nothing is safe from this “kangaroo” dog. So if you leave it lower than 1m, he’s sure to steal it.
Favourites are slippers, books, papers, tissues and clothing. The slippers he will happily take off your feet. Tissues from your pocket, or while trying to blow your nose and clothes while you are still wearing them. Today for example, he stole two tissues, which are now ripped up and spread around the lounge room. He stole about 5 pillows throughout the day. He broke 2 lots of blinds, stole slippers off my feet and tried to eat my jumper off me. You can’t help to forgive him though as he always gives you kisses and cuddles after, so its hard to stay mad at him for long.

Yesterday I was hit by a car

To start with he’s fine. We don’t know how he is fine, but he is. When being walked yesterday, Lou pulled the lead out of my dad’s hand. He was in a park but bolted towards an incredibly busy road, and was hit by a car. The wheels missed him but he rolled under the car with a terrifying skreech. He then got up, ran into more on coming traffic, thankfully no one was injured and he wasn’t hit again, then ran down the street. One man tried to help but couldn’t keep up, he was running so fast and they lost sight of him.

He was found by a lovely man in a bait shop, that managed to catch him. He couldn’t believe that he was so strong and had no idea he’d just been hit. So we are so grateful he checked his collar and rang us.

So Lou has a tiny scratch on his leg and some bruising but is still his crazy, loveable self. The moral is, please if you see a runaway dog help him out and look to see if he has a  number is on his collar. Lou is also micro-chipped and all his collars have his name and number on them, as he is crazy and tries to runaway often.

So for the dogs like Lou, who can’t help themselves and run away, please help them out by helping them find there way home. We are incredibly lucky that Lou is the Super-dog – he always acts like he is.
