Sammie Jo's Diary

Our guests love meeting Sammie Jo and Josie.  They get to cuddle her, some feed her but everyone loves her.  Sammie Jo and Josie would have to be the most photographed joey in Australia. A guest today mentioned she would love to see Sammie Jo's progress over the years so could we put some updates on our webpage ans they are not Facebook users. This is her diary. and now Josie has joined her. Please feel free to like and make comments


I have been out and about enjoying the great outdoors and hanging with some new friends. Sunday afternoon I saw Joslyn and Mum traipsing through the paddocks, jumping over creeks, negotiating electric and barb wire fences and avoiding snakes.  I was with my new friends, so it was kinda embarrassing.  They got scared and took off into the distance and I followed them, hoping Mummy didn't know I was part of the mob.  We all look the same so it it a bit hard to tell. If you are a human reading this imagine having fun with your mates at the night club and your parents show up to take you home? Not sure if I will ever live this down.

The next morning I was enjoying my breakfast when I heard Mummy calling.  I was all by myself this morning and it was a bit lonely.  I waited for Mummy to come close and it felt so nice to hear her voice again.  She asked me if I wanted to come home and have a bottle.  The magic word 'bottle ' I would do almost anything for that.  I followed Mum for awhile but after getting through the last fence I raced on ahead making sure Mummy was following me.  

I enjoyed my bottle and fresh fruit scraps, some kangaroo muesli and got a long cuddle from Mummy.  We Skyped with Doug, Johnnie, Sam and Pa (Pa hadn't met me before.  You know he is the only Granddad in America with a kangaroo grand daughter?) Josie is so happy to have me around as well.  She has this big smile on her face.  

I had a great day yesterday and answered the call of the wild again at 5pm but was back again this morning.  After all how do I face my new wild friends when they know Mummy comes and looks for me and I give in for a bottle??  Not sure if I can ever live that one down.
