As we are rural and have 5 acres the dogs get free roaming whilst "at home" I have to admit they are not used to being on a lead tho can do it if they have to.  Also we find they stay healthier if in our patch.

There can be so many nasty things out in the fields and the river has definitely been used as a dumping ground by someone.  We always seemed to be at the vet. The last time was a serious laceration caused by dumped wire.

We are so fortunate to have a field and do lots of training and games in it which they love. Everyone is happy and lots of visits from other dogs keeps everyone sociable.

On the nest...

All nests should be empty by now Dan. This is why so much hedge cutting goes on at this time of year!

we have similar nests and always leave until now, clear, then rebuild the  store

Busy, I am so sorry, hugs to all. Life is tough sometimes.

There was a big leather clad biker chap in the chemist this morning, looked the type you would cross the street when seen.  I heard him say never to stop believing as when you think the big mans not listening something always happens!  Now who would have thought that? Made me think

Yes fairy I agree. At least I can get my eyes open now!!!

my dear mum had mnd it's a terrible thing and I heard about that farmer. The good news is that the ice bucket challenge of a few years ago raised enough for research to come through with groundbreaking advances. There is always hope for without that we have nothing!

Dove, I am glad you got help. I didn't mean tedult. Meant result!

i am curled up on couch full of steroids. Woke with a familiar rash and itch over hands and wrists, then eyes, then voice started to go. I know the signs and carry epipen but as surgery is literally a stones throw I went down. Lovely new young doc who was worried wanted me to use eipen get ambulance and go to hospital. I know my body and was confident steroids would do the trick so am curled up and gradually feeling better Hate taking them but needs must.  This is all because I forgot to put my gloves on harvesting the tomatoes!
