Dog House Blog, Gary Is No Scapegoat!


Molly The Wally Is A Wanted Dog!


No Ruff Justice as Gary the Goat is cleared of vandalising flower beds!


When a Sydney court opened for business the judge must have thought the police were kidding when defendant walked onto the stand. Gary the goat was brought to court charged with destroying a flower bed outside a Sydney museum. Gary, the flower eating goats graze with the law ended after a judge ruled neither he nor his owner could be found guilty of vandalism. Police at the time levelled a fine of AUS$440 (£292) against owner Jim Dezarnaul (AKA Jimbo Bazoobi). However man and goat got their day in court, with Gary arriving resplendent in a colourful hat. The brown and white goat did not testify, but he did have his own lawyer. Gary told our sources at Molly Media before the hearing, ''If this isn't thrown out of court, I'll eat my hat. On second thought I’ll probably eat my hat anyway”.Magistrate Carolyn Barkell said the accused had been eating the flowers when police arrived, but said there was no evidence Gary was there with the intention of vandalising vegetation. The goat's lawyer Paul McGirr said the police had issued the wrong penalty order, because it related to a person and not a goat. Owner Mr Dezarnaul said the case serves as a lesson to overzealous authorities. "Gary's name has been cleared of all this slander," he said. "He was simply eating and I want to thank everyone for coming down here. Gary the goat taught the cops a valuable lesson today, don't bite off more than you can chew."
Today we have another clever ass when a gang of robbers had their getaway foiled after by their donkeys’ braying.  The trio of clueless Colombian criminals were forced to ditch their ill gotten gains after the animal started to bray blowing their cover and attracting police. The gang tried to steal rum, oil, rice, cans of tuna and sardines from a small shop in the tiny north Caribbean town of Juan de Acosta. They had planned to load the goods onto 10-year-old Xavi, who they had stolen some 12 hours before, and tried to make their escape. However Xavi bellowed out a series of Eee-haws, which ricochet through the nights’ silence waking up the whole neighbourhood. The donkey was held in the town police station for 12 hours until his owner came to collect him. Hopefully he was given some carrots and a good pat on the back. Donkeys certainly don’t make good getaway vehicles.

  1. We watched Gary on television...the News. Can't believe the cops spent so much time trying to find something to charge him with. Probably 87000 crimes were committed during that time.
