Penny and I love watching Inspector Rex. Well, I love watching it and Penny loves the chance to get on the furniture - she's allowed to lie on her special doona on the couch beside me when I'm watching the show.
Today I read in the Courier Mail an account of a suspected robber who jumped the fence into the backyard of an off-duty police dog in Brisbane - the article compared the heroic dog to Inspector Rex, when he chased the guy down the street and held him for the police to arrest.
I loved the bit at the end where the dog jumped into the police car to sit beside his prisoner. Yep, just like Rex.
