Constable Dog and characters from Baroombla

The following are drawings from my unpublished late children to early teenage book 'Constable Dog'.

The little railway town of Baroombla. Somewhere in the Never-Never-land.

Boss of all the beef cattle in the area.

Blaaaack Baaart, King of the sheep.

Even in a far outback town there could be traffic problems. Especially with Emus.

Constable Dog's home and station.

Constable Dog's love. Fifi the tourist dog who won his heart.

The Kangaroos were only too quick to have a good laugh if anything went wrong.

Constable Dog loved playing Cricket. But a Kangaroo had to dress up when other teams visited as it was a Humans only competition.

Sometimes the only way to stop speeding Emu's was a speed trap. 

The Emu's were a continual speeding problem and although Dog frequently gave them tickets, they were after all just Emu's so they ate them.

Constable Dog at the wheel of the Landrover while the human policeman took a nap.

Kangaroo Blue, the retired old Police Roo that ran his own remote station.

Rex the rescue dog who was relief pilot for the Flying Doctor Service. But could only fly in straight lines.

Some of the numerous locals.

The sheep flock avoids capture by climbing to the top of the desert rocks.

Some slithery locals.

The dead spider was a traffic hazard and had to be demolished.

The modernized Baroombla Hotel.

The wall built to stop being blown away by the desert wind.

Pisinpot was smaller than Baroombla but had a good cricket team.

Wombats were sometimes called on as Special Constables when Constable Dog was on a break.

Crow, Crows....they were everywhere.

The Mosquitoes were so big you needed a cricket bat to squish them.

“Eatus Gobbleupia Intoxicatus”.

Constable Dog himself. A fine, efficient and loyal creature who really ran Baroombla.
