Today we went to Warrnambool for a swim and Cuddlepie insisted that we go to 'Penguin Island' (actually Middle Island). He absolutely loved Oddball - you may remember me talking about the movie here - and wanted to go to Oddball's island.
He was swimming and didn't notice the ranger and the two Maremmas enter the water. The ranger walks them across to the island in the afternoon and picks them up in the morning. Cuddlepie was so excited when he saw them!
'I got to pat Oddball!' he yelled.
We were pretty thrilled with our brush with fame!
