Not since Benton gave chase to a herd of deer in Richmond Park last year has a dog video tickled us quite like Shackleton’s antics here.

The golden retriever was out for a walk with his owner in the Kentish countryside near the village of Pluckley when a wallaby inexplicably came bounding up the mud path towards them.

Shackleton sits calmly, patiently, waiting until he can see the whites of the marsupial’s eyes, then does what any right-thinking canine companion would do, and sets off to murder the bastard.

We’re not entirely sure what happened in the aftermath to these scenes, but we’re sure that no animals were harmed in the making of this video…
