I've just been out to feed the birds and, guess what? more hedgehog poo. I'm so chuffed.

  In my experience, hedgehogs are very good judges of character

Too many dogs in too small an area, it's making them all stressed and anxious and they're barking and making a noise in order to get your attention (you're the pack leaders) so that you will exert authority which will calm them down.  Inappropriate urinating is also a sign of anxiety.  Coupled with the out of control dogs next door it sounds like a disaster area to me - I think you really need to reduce the number of dogs and then give them much more positive attention.

It would also really help you to consult a good dog behaviourist.  Your vet should be able to recommend one.


Good luck

Can we just have more smilies? 

We don't have a green with envy so we have to use the sick one 

I can also think of a surprise smilies, I'm sure there are a couple of others, we don't need a million choices but envy and surprise would be useful 

We appear to need a 'hugs' smiley

Worm casts

Let them dry and brush them before mowing - worms are good for your lawn - getting rid of them would cause all sorts of problems.

Morning all.

Thanks again one and all. You really are just so kind.

Especially loving all the hugs, they're great.


Families eh?....



It's only when you expect better of them that it can hurt you

I don't think it was him coming back - I think it was his 'influence' over your life leaving for good


I don't believe in 'spirits'.

Hosta, the pain family cause is the hardest, after all they are your blood and it's hard to believe they can hurt you.  ......

Doesn't really surprise me - they know you best so they know how best to do it - and they've grown up in competition with you

Chicky - no adolescent niece with us this time - she prefers to spend her time with her friends rather than uncle and aunt - don't think we're much fun at the moment - we were great fun last year - she loved helping in the garden, picking the raspberries, feeding the hedghogs and counting the frogs - that phase has passed ............
