Finding a small animal latching on to your beloved pet’s back might seem like a scary scenario at first glance, but sometimes it can be a rather wholesome moment. As in the case of Sally Watkinson who discovered a baby Australian ringtail possum clinging for dear life to her puli dog’s back.
The woman shared this incident on her Facebook page by posting a set of pictures showing the cutest little possum hitching a ride on her dog Kato’s back. She also shared some details about the whole thing, including the fact that it happened twice!
First, Sally found a tiny female possum sitting on one of her pets’ back. Luckily, neither of her dogs seemed to notice or mind the little marsupial. Her partner Jon spent the afternoon looking for wildlife rescue organizations to help and the dogs were eventually taken to the vet whereas the possum was taken to be later transported to the care of wildlife rescue.
And then, only a day later, Sally shared an update that it happened again. This time, the Australian woman found a baby boy clinging to her dog’s fur. “This one was annoying him a bit more as it seemed to be digging in a bit, Hugo [her other dog] was still ignoring it,” Watkinson shared in a Facebook post.
