We have a new dog!

We're not sure what breed but thinking maybe some kind of sighthound cross.
Or maybe whitetail deer and jack rabbit?



Hope you all know me well enough to know I'm kidding. Taz is a baby kangaroo and he and Sophie got along famously. He is just a baby so she probably won't get to see him again as he will be about 5 ft full grown and a bit aggressive and really strong. But he sure is fun right now and a little sweetheart. He loved playing dressup with her he's a little ham. I think he didn't mind the outfits because he wears a diaper in the house....with mickey and minnie mouse on them. Friends of mine are exotic animal rehabilitators and rescued him in bad shape. He's doing great now!

Very cool! I know people get wallaby for pets, but a bit surprised at kangaroo that is bigger.

He is a crack up I couldn't believe how friendly and calm he was about everything. Very curious. He kept going into the bathroom to pull strings of carpet out of the floor mat. I'm still finding them everywhere.

They didn't get him as a pet they rescued and are rehabilitating him. But they do spoil their rescues rotten and he'll live in the house until he's old enough to go out in the big enclosure with a buddy.

They have all kinds of exotics they've rescued, wolves, lynx, bobcats, etc.

Taz is darn cute! There was an April Fools' joke in our area that said that wild kangaroos were being released in Wisconsin, and I fell for it. I'm afraid of kangaroos..
