As with the echidna incident last week, Mr Bear sounded the alarm from his favourite outside-watching position on the back of the couch [ sofa]

small dog explodes through door and crosses stage left barking hysterically
slight pause accompanied by duet for disturbed-magpies-and-canine
large hare careens into view heading stage right
followed by the biggest freakin‘ fox I’ve EVER seen
followed by His Beariness in full warcry
which makes me kinda glad that there’s no rabies in Australia – let’s hear it for our draconian quarantine laws!
