In Adelaide, Australia, Henry was walking his dog Tony out in their yard when a baby koala jumped into the back of the pooch. The bewildered dog tried to nudge the adorable joey off, but it had clung to his fur very well.
Every time Tony thought he had succeeded getting the koala off his back, the marsupial just kept clinging onto him and found a way to clamber back on in a different position.
The dog eventually got rid of the koala after rolling on its back. The koala scurried back into the trees and might have searched for its real mother. According to Henry, it must have mistaken his dog as its mother.
