Good luck with the move. Hope all goes well.

Will you be naming your new country estate? If you do, for the love of God please don't let it be anything corny like Janeil Manor

Some pics.


Neil spent a good part of yesterday dog proofing an area of the garden. He lined fences with green mesh, built up low fences into higher ones, and generally sealed an area round the garage for them





How long do you think it took them to get out





















10 minutes.

The GSD jumped out and the staffie ate his way out.

The collie was just patiently waiting for us inside the area saying "where's the other two gone?"

Looks like you're getting organised very quickly . Enjoy

AAAArrrrrrgggggggggggggggghhhhhhhhhhhh



Who'd have a staffie


He has pulled the green mesh netting off Neil's carefully crafted gate and was about to sink his teeth into some juicy wood when I spotted him


Metal gates next



Electric fence next if they don't grow up
