A hole in the fence

Millie (naughty little white dog) has found another hole in the fence. She's just wandered off again only to be found in a big green field behind our fencing and hedging...where apparently some horses are kept (I didn't even know this field existed). I just went out to find her and came across a very nice lady in pink wellington boots trying to push Millie back through the fencing towards me. I could only see this lady's wellies and lower legs - because by now I was bent double scrabbling about under the bottom of the huge leylandi (which incidentally was  was dripping wet because of all the rain - so now I'm soaked through). Millie eventually came back through to be greeted by me being all sweetness and light with her because this lady was listening - when  really I wanted to seriously tell her off. However, I remember from dog training classes (what a waste of money that was!) that when an errant hound returns you have to praise them for coming back!!!. So I did... through very gritted teeth!!! The little white dog is now sitting at my feet looking suitable crestfallen :( You just have to love her !

  1. She is not a hound she is a terrier. Hounds are big with big woffy barks. Not yappy barks!

    Examples of hounds:
    Pointers both German and English
    Weimeraners (The best)
    Blood hounds. Remember Clement Froyd? Henry
    Fox hounds. I love them too
    Beagles.
    Bassett Hounds.
