Luke and Louie – our 19-month-old dog, a bitza – went to Belongil Beach, but approaching the beach Louie jumped out of the car window, which was not something Louie had done before.

Luke spent a couple of hours looking for him but Louie was nowhere to be found, so Luke came back to Mullum at 5.30pm. Louie was at our front gate at Main Arm Rd, Mullumbimby.

Louie had walked home from Byron covered in ticks and a couple of scratches on his legs and was tired. I think that’s amazing that he walked 30km in seven hours.
