You may have noticed I do like a good animal story. Here’s another from the Camperdown Chronicle of September 14, 1954.
It is the story of Fido, a sheep dog belonging to electrical contractor Mr A.J Moon of Hamilton. Fido had been confined at a Port Fairy vet, but after a determined escape, he walked 54 miles home to Hamilton even though he was recovering from a leg operation. When he arrived at Mr Moon’s home in Garton Street, Hamilton, Fido demolished 3lbs of steak. His leg was cured too!
