Hi addict,

I'm 27 as well. I live in Cornwall too. There's a rumour that Verdun and Monty are one and the same person.

I've got a cottage style garden. Not too tidy but my excuse is that it's good for wildlife.

A few years ago I was lucky to buy about 8 acres of old mining land opposite the cottage. Left as it was apart fro creating a pond.

 My dog is a German Shepherd called Khan but more content to lie in the shade these days as he is 27 in dog years.

Something to block out sound of neighbours voice!

My daughter has noisy neighbours and she is considering getting geese as they are very noisy. I just hope she doesn't regret it.

It's lovely reading your stories about your pets, especially the rescue ones. My brother had a rescue dog once who had never been outside. He used to fall down holes or dips in the ground as he'd only ever been on a flat surface. He was fascinated by beams of light and used to chase them. Maybe that was his only stimulation when he was locked inside.

I love Paul O'Grady's programme about Battersea Dog's Home. Some uplifting stories.

This is my dog Khan guarding the chicks. Sadly he's feeling his age now. He's 11 which is quite old for a big dog. My best friend.

There was a lady bitten last week in Devon and she had to spend three days in hospital. they said the poison was stronger this time of year. She said it was her own fault as she was wearing flip flops walking over moorland.

Usually they get out of way but sadly sometimes dogs can surprise them and get bitten.

My son was strimming a rough area two years ago when he thought he'd been scratched by thorns when he saw a snake slithering away. He was wearing jeans and it was later in the year so he had nothing worse than a bruise for a week or two.

Lovey photo, LeadFarmer. My snake was off like a shot so not a good photo.

I've got corragated tins in my rough area and photoed this grass snake today. It was very dull and it's eyes were cloudy so I think it's getting ready to shed it's skin.

Also took a photo of an adder today and posted that photo too.

I know snakes aren't everyone's cup of tea but I'm always thrilled to see them and took this photo about 50 yards from my house. Also took a photo of a grass snake today. I'll put that on the grass snake forum.
