Here at the Dougall Diaries we would like to wish a very happy THIRTIETH birthday to Patrick the Wombat from Ballarat.
Patrick is the oldest bare-nosed wombat in captivity, by 10 years!! And at a MASSIVE 40kgs, he has GOT to be the biggest too!!
My peep is a massive fan of Patrick, and keeps telling me we look alike... But I don't see it...
Patrick's keepers at the Ballarat Wildlife Park, to help perpetual batchelor Patrick out on his birthday, have set up a Tinder account for the S.N.A.W. (sensitive-new-aged-wombat).
We wish you luck in your search for love, Patrick, and hope your get plenty of carrots and rides in your barrow for your birthday.
Woofs, from Dougall.

Oh hi there.... Long time no woofs.
Sorry about that.
My human is terrible.
Our winter has been long, wet and cold... And did I say WET... ???Very WET! And the human has been hibernating...
I have been a little sick too. My poor ears have been very bad, my left one especially. So bad the dogtor was suggesting a very yucky, very scary surgery (where they take part of my ear canal away... and sew my ear closed...) The peep and I are working very had to avoid it, so I am going all the way to Melbourne soon to see a specialist in doggy allergies.
Floyd has been, well, up to his old tricks...
Where does he think he's going to sleep when he is destroying our bed?!
Hope that you are all well, and happy... What have you been up to? What have I missed out on?
