Melanie,I was wondering where you were this week,thought maybe you'd been attacked by a Koala or something and were in hospital
It sounds like you live in a really noisy area and your by-laws are not the same as ours,so I guess earplugs is your only option
Don't you have all kinds of strange creatures roaming around at night? I take it you live in the country-side,isn't there a danger for that little Dachshund to be taken by Dingos,Tasmanian Devils
Short of stealing the poor little fellow,I guess there is not much you can do..
We have an e-mail pal in Canberra,maybe one day before we hit the bucket,we'll take the long flight and visit Australia a country that seems to be on another planet with all these unusual creatures
