HERE'S something you don't see every day - a sheep strolling around a suburban shopping centre.
Well, you do see it in Fairfield in inner Melbourne.

Maybe even twice a day, because that's how often Tiny Tot has a walk.
Tiny Tot belongs to Nell Johnson.
Nell has a property in Clunes, but right now she's living in Fairfield where Tiny Tot has become a local identity.
The eight-month-old sheep loves getting pats from passers-by or dropping in to see his friends in the bank or the cafe.
"He's very affectionate and very well behaved. He seems to know that he's something special,'' says Nell, who also drives the sheep around in her car.
"I've had dogs all my life, but none have come near Tiny Tot for personality.''
Nell has to go to London later this year for work and plans to take him with her.
"People find him a real novelty. They want to pat him and feed him.
"Patting is fine, but sheep mustn't eat anything except oats and grass.
"He's not happy about this, of course, and just this morning he was eyeing off my chicken sandwich.''
