I arranged to ride 70 km’s down the Great Southern Rail Trail with my wife, her sister & boyfriend. On the return trip we rode past a dog wandering around by himself in Meeniyan. Which was 20 km’s from our car in the middle of nowhere. I rolled my eyes. I knew that my wife was going to see him and try & do the rescue puppy thing. Which alas she did. She gave the dog attention and he started to follow us. We were a long way from our car mind you, and wanted to get home. My wife wanted to stop to worry about this dog. We tried to ride off from him, but funnily enough he ran after us. He was able to match the 20 kmph that we were doing, and he kept up. Amazingly the dog kept pace with us for about 15km’s before starting to tire. We slowed down a little after then to let him keep up.
It was the Easter weekend, and little was open, and we were camping so our options of what to do when we got back was limited. We got back to the car and gave him some water & got the dog in the car and drove back to Leongatha. We went to the Police Station who called animal control for us, & we had to wait for about an hour or so. The dog must have been bored as he chewed a bit of my car.
Animal control came & picked him up. A week later my wife contacted the council,& found that they had located the dog’s owner who had picked him up. His name happened to be lucky.
