This pup just wants to go up!

Sometimes we meet up with the lovely Anne-Marie and her three dogs when we're in Carlton. She loves watching Gus climb trees, and he seems pretty pleased with himself when he has an audience, be it human or canine.


He hasn't made it out onto the branches of this particular tree yet (although this is not through lack of trying!*)




Tree hugger ...

Almost there, little one!

Poor little possums get disturbed from their sleep ...



.... but the boisterous rainbow lorikeets don't mind - they keep on hanging around (literally!) to feast on elm seeds and chatter at top volume!

* I know I shouldn't encourage him. He has reduced his tree-climbing ventures lately, as I've indulged him less and less. But when he does go up and down the trees repeatedly it's a great way of getting his energy out!

He's so funny. I can't believe he can climb like that.

Okay, this is by far the weirdest dog behavior I have ever seen! And this includes the funny little bulldog in japan who likes to get waxed with duct tape:) Is this even physically possible? So cute!

Thanks for stopping by my blog, if your dog is new to diving for rocks be careful because ours carried that habit to land and brings home a huge rock everyday, we have weird piles of rocks on our yard and all her fangs are broken and chipped. She's obsessed with it and becomes depressed if we discourage her. It's so cute and funny but her teeth make us really sad :(
