Everybody Needs Good Neighbours...

Our lovely neighbours next door told Mum that they often notice an outline of a little body with a waggly tail looking through the frosted glass part of their front door.

I'm not a sticky beak, I just like going over to say hello. Most of the time Mum just leaves me to it, but one morning she flew into a panic and ran after me.

Apparently before 6am is not a good time for visiting. Mum chased me, calling out my name. She was shouting in whispers if you know what I mean. I was only trying to be polite, but Mum was really embarrassing me, coming out in her pink jammies. This was up there with her "Wallaby Poo Dance".

Those of you who have seen my zooming videos will know how fast I am. I'm also good at dodging Mum. I ran up to their front door and tapped. The neighbours mustn't have heard me so I ran under their bedroom window and woofed a couple of times.

By now, Mum was really cranky. She had stepped on a gumnut and a twig with her bare feet in her haste to stop me. I don't know how this is my fault.... she should have worn shoes!

I was scooped up into Mum's arms and taken home before I could wake the neighbours up. Mum rang them later to apologise but they said they didn't even hear me. They did however hear MUM call out my name!

Mum says I'm lucky that they like me and we're very lucky to have such wonderful neighbours. We really couldn't have asked for better neighbours. They have been so kind and caring ever since we moved in.

One of my neighbours is very artistic and clever. He makes amazing sculptures out of recycled materials.

This is my favourite.
I have also become friends with a dog called Pixie who lives 4 doors away from me. We have been for walks together which has been fun.

Picking Pixie up for our walk.

We'd rather go to Pet Biz next door!

I hope you all have wonderful neighbours too.

  2. I am so pleased that things are working out for you, and that you have some lovely neighbours and god furiends - it's what you deserve!

  3. That's great you have such nice neighbors and a friend to walk with! (I bet that was funny when you tried to wake up your neighbors and your momma was chasing you!) What's that about wallaby poo?

    your pal,

  4. Your Mum's a bit strange, isn't she Gemma, thinking there's a right and wrong time to be friendly? Of course, if you're awake, you should be able to visit your friends.

  5. We don't have wallabies here, but I like just about every kind of poo - dog, cat, rabbit, goose, horse -- and my mom has a similar reaction to yours. I just don't understand it.

    your pal,
