Bon Scott Dog Hero in Australian Wizard of Oz

Hi, it’s Greenygrey. Further to our explanation about the significance of Grey meeting Bonzo in our last blog, it is of course the Wizard of Oz theme catching up with the Werewolf of Oz. In the Wizard of Oz Toto travelled with Dorothy from the start, but adaptations hardly ever mirror totally, and ours is no different (no, ours is not the greenygrey one below).

In the Werewolf of Oz Bonzo takes the part of Toto, and joins in chapter 17. And without further ado, here’s the moment for you to view:

17.  BONZO SCOTTIE ON THE HIGHWAY TO LANCELIN

I said adios to Don and Sancho in the morning, before heading up the highway. Not long after, I saw a ghostly dog apparition hitch-hiking.

I greeted it when I reached it.  It introduced himself as Bonzo Scottie, before asking if this was the Highway to Hell. I replied that I was a stranger in these parts, but didn’t think so; as far as I knew, it was the highway to Lancelin, which didn’t sound much like Hell. Poor Bonzo seemed upset, as if he had the Downpayment Blues. He said he thought he’d been stripped of his soul, and that he might find it in Hell, which ain’t supposed to be a bad place to be.

I said I thought searching for Hell should be the last resort, and I didn’t think it was up ahead, but he was quite welcome to Ride Onwith me.

Bonzo agreed, and cheered up on the way to Lancelin; we seemed to reach it in no time. Upon arrival, we met a sea lion called Celia Ono, and she recommended the windsurfing, dune buggying and sandboarding that were very popular on the pristine beaches.

We didn’t need much arm-twisting, and had a fabulous afternoon and evening enjoying the beach sports. Celia had great balance, and I had to laugh when Bonzo exclaimed that the Girl’s got Rhythm.
