an encounter......

This morning here at the creek

'b-boy' (aka brimmer) and I were off to work in the forest...

'b-boy' thought all those trees looked a bit forbidding

 so he decided to head off home....

little did I know he was giving me a hint....

a short walk and while later in the Kooraban National Park

crackle crunch, crackle crunch
(is that a wallaby I hear?)

It's a fox 

being chased by 


(can you see them both?
sorry about the blur - but neither the camera or the photographer were prepared for an action shot!!!)

I don't know who was the most startled - the fox... the dingo...
OR ME!!!!

I had visions of my kiddies on the TV news saying
'a dingo took my mummy'...

a weird instinct kicked in
and I woofed at the dingo with all of my woofing might...


(what sort of an idiot woofs at a dingo?)

moments later b-boy gave his woofing reply from the home...
wooof! wooof! woof!

followed by sarah and brody dog in the home yard
woof! woof! woof! woof! woof! woof! woof!
 the whole pack of sams creek woofers were woofing away...
woof! woof! woof! woof! woof! woof! woof!

and the dingo ran away....

(not before I almost fainted from fright!)

oooo what a morning!



  1. I'm guessing here, but I think the dingo would have won a fight with a fox. Foxes are not big on fighting.
    I've only seen 2 dingos here. Or (more likely) same dingo twice.
    At the previous home we used to see big dingos, believed to have mated with feral (or just bitch-chasing)dogs. Big brutes!

  2. i'm hearing stories of wolfsong over on this side of the puddle

  3. Just a little bit too much action for one morning! How amazing that b-boy knew to take off; and that they then all joined the woofing - have you worked out where that came from yet???
