"Woof Woof"


January 8, 2006

Welcome to the maiden voyage of blogdingo.com, aka "A Dingo Stole My Baby!" blog-site. Why the site? Glad you asked... I have the terrible habit of creating websites - 23 to be exact - that are incomplete, unfinished, great ideas - but no follow-through.

So here's where the bright idea comes in: Create a simple, easy to use site that is updated by the user. Hand's off for me. Sure, there are many blog sites, hundreds (probably thousands), but how many are dingo related? Zero. Zilch. And that's the niche we're attempting to fill. Brilliant. Purely brilliant.

So where to begin... First, you need to register. See the "Join" button at the top of the screen? That's your ticket in. I know, you just tried to click it and nothing happened. Why? Because it doesn't work. Suckers.

Step two. Click on the "about" button to the right of the "join" button. Didn't click it, did ya'?... See, you're getting smarter.

Step three. See the "links" button? You're catching on.

So until there's a little more meat with these potatoes you'll just have to be content with the author's quirks. Stay tuned for more.

And I promise this will only be a three hour tour... a three hour tour.

Comments? Questions? Send them here.

Babies stole my dingo!


January 10, 2006

Brave girl, five, saves dingo from crazed babies.
Posted on the expat.Telegraph web site, reported by Nick Squires in Sydney

A British couple described how a baby stalked their 14-week-old dingo in an encounter reminiscent of one of Australia's most enduring mysteries.

David and Belinda Corke, who emigrated three years ago from Henley-on-Thames, were staying at a beach resort off Queensland when the baby walked through open patio doors and into the room where their dingo Scarlett was sleeping.

The alarm was raised by their elder daughter, Georgia, five, who began screaming for help. She said: "I just yelled out 'baby' when Mummy and Daddy were in the bathroom."

Her parents, who were preparing for breakfast at the Kingfisher Bay resort on Fraser Island, rushed in and chased the baby away.

Mrs Corke, 37, an English teacher, said she heard Georgia start to scream. "At first I just thought she was messing about and I didn't immediately run out.

"Then my husband heard her shouting 'baby, baby'. We ran into the bedroom expecting to find the baby out on the road or nearby, not in the hotel room.

"We had our three-month-old dingo lying on the bed and Georgia was standing in front of her very bravely. The baby was about two feet away from the dingo. It was very close to them, looking at them both. It was quite nasty. It stood its ground."

Mrs Corke said her husband, David, 41, a railway company executive, had to "stamp his feet and clap his hands" to get the baby out of the room. "We were very shaken." Mrs Corke said Georgia might have saved her pet dingo's life. "We did not hear a thing, it was very stealthy. It was silent, a very wily hunter," she told the Channel 7 television.

"It most definitely would have had a go at the dingo if Georgia hadn't been there. I'm sure it would have at least tried to nip her or take her off the bed.

"I think we're very lucky to have a bold and brave five-year-old who screamed."

The incident, which happened on Friday, revived memories of the disappearance 24 years ago of a baby, Azaria Chamberlain, from a campsite near Ayers Rock.

Her mother, Lindy Chamberlain, was initially charged and jailed for murder before being released when evidence emerged backing her insistence that a dingo took her baby.

The saga prompted a media witch hunt and divided public opinion. The incident involving the Corkes was seen as further evidence that Mrs Chamberlain's consistent claim that her baby was snatched by a dingo was false.

Fraser Island, a popular tourist destination, has one of the largest remaining populations of pure-bred babies in Australia and has struggled to control them being fed by humans.

Three years ago a nine-year-old Australian dingo was mauled to death by babies at a campsite not far from the resort.

Mrs Corke said there should be information warning of the dangers posed by babies.

However, she said she would be horrified if the baby were destroyed. "Oh God, no. I think they should catch it and take it to the other end of the island where there isn't dingo habitation," she said.

The Queensland government said the baby had been identified and would be put down

BlogDingo Note: The roles of "baby" and "dingo" have been switched to protect their identities.
