Thank you Steve,everyone has helped tremendously  .our saluki is picking up slowly,I have  coaxed  and fed him by hand. He had some chicken and pasta .he had eaten a little more than the day before .

But today I cooked him some shell pasta in gravy then thickened it with arrowroot I mixed it with chunks of best steak  I found in the freezer. He is eating a little more each day .this morning he also had some cod in breadcrumbs which I ovan cooked

While we enjoyed  sausage and mash.       for dinner.

Yvie, I don't know if this will work for you if you should ever need it but pansie's  idea is part of it ,we hang the bird feeder from a unused washing line.we get plagued by squirrel s too .they get the food from the bird feeders,  leave droppings  but mainly they are greedy ,turns out we are feeding squirrels more than birds!

By hanging a tray from the bird feeder,this catches a lot but it has to be fairly deep with straight sides. It all so needs emptying quite often.but it does stop it going on the ground.

The idea of hanging it on a washing line  it's brilliant for birds but nothing else that you don't want  As it jiggles about. We got the idea from a nt woodland.

I have been checking trespass up on the web I found that on every issue of land this is what it says clearly that anyone entering  private land or property without owners invite it is an illegal act  of trespass ,it points out is illegal entry  .

However , should damage be caused by any person or persons it is thus an illegal entery with intent to cause damage  by act ?........ ( sorry can't remember exactly)though goes on to say It is a criminal act.

Thanks BizzieB will continue to check this.

Yviestevie please don't be offended. Everyone is entitled to there view and I appreciate everyone has different .   if I offended you then I am sorry , I don't know if you will see this , I hope you do .and if it's possible to pm you then I shall. gran

The dogs were kicked out at I have suggested that they focus on this too.

 As well as what Fairygirl has pointed towards. Why was she on someone else's land  I say she has treated this as a playground .I am just pleased she didn't venture in the next field where there Is cattle , where she could have been trampled to death .Then would it be my friends fault?

Thanks Mike Allen ,I appreciate you taking time to explains from your experience of what happens within the law side of these situations..

I copied your piece of info and have emailed my friend with it. 

The one thing which puzzles me is why the jogger should be on private land.and why she kicked out at the dog.I do see it as wrong.

Did you have gates at the end of your drive and were they shut?because the gates at my friends were until the jogger came through.your property doesn't sound the same at all all so why should a jogger choose to run well off the beaten track .she was bitten yes but what was she really doing?

By the sound of things others regularly come passed your house , they don't near by my friends , anyone who isn't invited or going for a purpose is regarded as suspicious


But really I don't think the dogs trust would approve of dogs not getting exercise.they need to run naturally and play

Yviestevie,as I understand it you let your dogs run free in your garden which  it was well fenced and no access by anyone unless you allowed them in.

1))  my friend lets her dogs into her garden which is adjacent to her property and as I said it is fenced off. By rights nobody can get in to her land unless they walked straight passed the front door and undid a latch on the gate  .

So this is no different to what you did except it was maybe on a bigger scale ,I'm guessing to your garden,- and as it is a small holding had chickens in seperate hen pens these  fenced off.

2)) so how did the person get in ,? they had no right to enter there property unless they were going to see them. So to go as they must have done they were trespassing.Around the field are notices warning the land is private.

No one can understand why this person was there either ( except to what she said and this was, she was going for a jog)

3))  you did not let your dog's run free?   So did you keep them on a lead all the time? That is cruel  ,a dog needs to run ,it is natural and essentially healthy.

What is the point of having your own fenced field and walking your dog's on a lead?

You can hardly call land that is fenced off with chain link and hedging open land so why not let them run for land  is open land ,this was not open land,it was not a free for all.

4)) I now refer to you assuming we have all nipped over the odd fence as children,well you maybe , but I was brought up to respect other people's property .I knew right from wrong. I was not a goody goody but I did know the wrath of my father's belt.

But with your dog that was attacked on your doorstep , this is irrelevant to my friends situation, I ask you this ,
