I don't think you have offended anybody. We are all entitled to have differing views on any subject under the sun. We should also not take too much notice of people who offend us. Life is too short, and this thread will in due course reach the bottom of the page and be lost to constant view.

I love dogs - there has always been a dog or dogs in my life. They are in the main happy animals which greet their owners with metaphorical smiles every morning. But sometimes things go wrong.

Cangrandmafixitt came on the forum because she was distressed on behalf of her friend and wanted advice. It doesn't help to be told dogs should be on the lead at all times. You can't wind the clock back, unfortunately.

Anyone recognise this mysterious seedling?

Not sure, the leaves look a bit shiny for dog's mercury.

Trespass is only applicable if damage is caused. Frankly, I would kick out at a dog if I was going to be bitten. Chicken and egg situation.

Really there is no point in bringing cows into the conversation.

A running or 'cycling figure is very tempting to dogs, they are pack animals who naturally run down prey. Perhaps if the jogger had stood still she wouldn't have been bitten. Sadly the way to behave around animals is no longer taught. Witness the way drivers fail to drive correctly past horses on the road.

solar or not

Our water heating has been entirely solar from April to late September this year. We have two panels; sadly we don't have the right aspect for voltaics but we are considering free-standing panels, which are certainly feasible.

Yviestevie, anyone that kept a working dog on a lead on their land would look pretty stupid.

Just giving an example of how easy it is to generalise and how easy it is to talk nonsense.

In my experience most people who have land let their dogs run free. And why wouldn't they? When my daughter went out riding far from home she often took the dog, and it certainly wasn't on a lead.

If you look on the Problem Solving forum there is a current thread which will help you.

Best Plant to cover a drain cover

A prostrate Juniper planted next to the manhole works too.

help please as regards my dog

Cats are manageable if you wrap them in a towel so they can't scratch you. Tuck them under your elbow. You then have both hands free and the trick is to open the mouth and put the medication far back in the mouth beyond where they can use their tongue to eject the tablet.

It is much easier to do than to describe.

When you say their land, was the jogger on a footpath? Was the jogger entitled to be there?

You don't mention the breed of the dogs.

I think you have to go to court. Do you want the dog put down, or is it your dog?
