Paul has a problem !

Paul has a problem !
Whenever he goes to feed his hens or collect their eggs, a certain Chihuahua crawls under the gate to be with him.
Now this is all well and good because the hens don't bother to blink at the site of Honey, who's scampering around for whatever she can eat !
The problem comes in the form of a dog slightly larger than a Chihuahua - my German Shepherd guest, Tash. In her desire to join them, Tash stands on her hind legs and manages to look over the top. But twice she has been caught as she's attempted to scale the gate.
I think I can safely say the hens would do more than blink if she succeeded !

Fran has been training dogs for owners from all over  the UK, as well as being asked to judge dogs in in the very male world of trialling. Not bad for a young lady still in her 20's ! Paul's six month old Working Cocker Spaniel Ella loves riding in the cars. She has tremendous spring in her skinny legs and gets into the back of the Hilux with little effort. It's a different story when it's time to leave. She's been trained never to jump out but to be patient and wait for her owner to pick her up, thereby preventing injuries ..... and vets bills !! When are we going to be there Dad ? Boarding dogs Charlie and his brother Alfie are staying with me for a few days, and as can be seen, a ball is something that creates a real bond. These two young dogs are lovely characters. Is this the cool way to carry a ball ? Scarlett, a yo
