Flobo, I am more and more convinced that some people just live without any common sense at all.
Blimey....some take their chances! One of ours is on season right now and although our garden is dog proof, we still don't let her out without one of us being there for a 'look out' and security. I'm not worried any dogs getting in or ours getting out....worried more of the two legged thieves that could possibly make their way through various obstacles and find their way to our property.
Unfortunately the shortage of basic knowledge of dog keeping run into all parts of dog info If only every dog owner would receive book of dog/bitch basics that is coded to go with the chip. At least then there would not be no excuse left to not know....other than if they cannot read in first place
Puppy Sitka is now 15 weeks old. He has loved the snow this week, running and jumping around in it, not feeling the cold. He overdid it yesterday though and flaked out immediately on getting home. He ignored his favourite caterpillar toy and even his arch rival.
I will be so glad when the weather's warmer so we can leave the back door open, and when it isn't dark at 'bedtime'... For some reason, when it's really cold, Jasper is more likely than ever to shout at the monsters at the bottom of the garden - though only at bedtime. Even if he's been out for a wee at 9.15pm, he is adamant he needs to go out and do the shouty thing at 9.30pm. And when he comes back in he's so pumped up, that he shouts at us too. If he does this at 9.30pm but I don't go straight up to bed after, then when I do get up to go to bed he wants to go out and shout again and gets agitated when I tell him he can't. As he's worked up, he's regressed when it comes to barking at Mr N when he comes up to bed later.
Oh well, it's a phase and it'll pass in spring/summer. I dare say the foxes are more active making whoopee at the moment.
But on a positive note: We saw a couple of deer the other side of a fence the other day. I'd already put J on lead as we were taking a short cut which was, strictly speaking, trespassing on golf club land, and though he was very excited at the sight of them, he realised he wasn't going to be able to take off after them and was no problem to control - he was an absolute star Though in a way it makes me sad as he may have just assessed the situation and decided that given the state of his legs now, he didn't stand a chanc
