Get ready to start saying “Ah!”...

Fairy Penguin meets Maremma dog in the Sarah Snook Family Movie Oddball

Since it was shot in Australia, the obvious comparison is with that fabulous movie Babe but, with a following wind, I reckon that Oddball could easily become a hit (see the Trailer: YouTube). What gives extra piquancy is that not only was it based on an actual event (with a Maremma dog called Oddball, of course) but that the whole thing continues.

The town of Warrnambool is on the south-eastern-most tip of Victoria, Australia, near the coast. Just 20 or 30m off the edge of the mainland is Middle Island. The island is too small for humans to live there, but has proven irresistible for Fairy Penguins (Eudyptula minor) (a.k.a Little Penguins, Blue Penguins, Kororā), the world's smallest penguin.
