Incorporating Pet Friendly Ideas

Thank you everyone. I really am very grateful: of course dog owners manuals are never written thinking people might like their gardens to be places for anything other than toilets and reading what you're writing is proving fantastic.

Oh Dorset how funny!

Morning all.  Lovely and frosty outside; thinking about all those horrid biting bugs shivering away 

Apparently my greenhouse is being used as a paint booth today  so there'll be no gardening for me. Maybe I'll build a snowman. The neighbours have made an awesome iglo!

Oh PDoc! I hope the greenhouse wasn't full of delicates. Do please write a wish list for replacements.  I'd loan you the space in mine to over winter for any you needed moving until things are sorted but it's full of car parts right now (don't ask!)

Worries & troubles that affect Forum friends.

Oh dear I am glad I blocked Mike after growing bored of his little feet stamping violin playing tantrums.

Philippa - I'm so sorry to hear about your greenhouse and tree interface issues! I hope you can get their insurance to pay for a greatly improved greenhouse and costs for removing all of that tree.

Thank you Victoria: what kind of hens do you have? The chicken farm ours are coming from said bantams aren't quite as harsh on the garden.

Thanks Lily!

Lilly - we've already decided it'll be a German Shepherd but as for which one... I'm already reminding OH we can only have ONE! He'd adopt the lot if he could.

We're already retiring many of our towels and hunting some nice new fluffy ones in preparation: I'm seeing now why the future inlaws have a chest of drawers by the back door dedicated to the dog!

Now dropped to -2.5'C. Brr! Take that bugs and slugs!

German Shepherd so possibly all of the above Dove! The pond was installed to be able to withstand swimmers so that's all good.
