The house we live in has a fully fenced back yard but that hasn't stopped Coco escaping on several occasions. Luckily, she has either found her own way home or to our neighbours house. We couldn't figure out how she was getting out at first, until we saw her trying to squeeze through a tiny space under the fence. I couldn't believe she could get through there until I saw it with my own eyes. Dad gave us some logs to block the holes and this seems to have fixed the problem.

However, now there is a new fascination with the neighbour's fence. Coco has always been interested in what's going on over the fence. She's a real outdoors girl and amuses herself out there for hours...until recently. The past few days she has been keeping a vigil at the fence. She only leaves to eat and to come and find us for the occasional cuddle. It can't be another animal attracting her attention, if it was a cat or dog, she would bark and growl. She just sits there, with her head under the fence, wagging her tail. I'm thinking that maybe my neighbour has been feeding her scraps from the fence. Any other ideas?

All else is well here. Steve is working hard but I'm not (post to follow).I have a follow up Doc's appointment on Friday. Post to follow re that as well. A continuation from my wee rant on face book a few weeks back. Don't worry, all is well (as far as I know) but I'm mighty pissed off about it.

Yikes, I think I need a secretary to keep up with all my posts. LOL!

I think that's all folks. Oh, Steve and I watched Bucket List, last night. I LOVE that movie.

Love KB

  1. lovely poem hun!

    It's obvious what Coco is doing, she has decided to drive to crazy with curiosity or is playing that old practical joke where you stop in the middle of the street, stare intently up at a high building and people begin to stop to see what you are looking at.

  2. The dog of eternal stench needs ta get away from the smell of her own farts!

  3. Kia ora Lol a curious coco he is. We had a cockers spaniel when we are young. Lovely dogs. Nice poem b.t.w.

    WS - You crack me up honey xxxx
