I'd have put them on reduced rations while the M-i-L is in town.

Well you can’t say no to this, so be ready to embrace it.

I’d just make sure the dog is extra hungry and bitey for their arrival. I would also spend a lot of time in just my boxers when they are there.

MiL sounds like major trouble, best be out a lot so she can't bother you both.

MiL on her way home Sunday. She has visited twice, both times after asking if she can come round. Visits cordial and I think she now understands that it is not her house and if she is to stay here, it will be at our invitation and not her expectation. She is not a bad old bird really, it just needed me and 'her in doors' to act as one for her to understand, so possibly our fault really. The dogs played a blinder, on her second visit one of them chewed one of her flip flops.

You have the best dogs, definitely deserving of extra rations now.

Tomorrow is market day so it will be beef/karabaw liver all-round, including next door's puppy who can get through the gate grill, as I think he may be the chief suspect in this case.

Next doors puppy is definitely the culprit. I found him today with one of my flip-flops in the road and both of mine looking like butter would not melt in their mouths.
