Fence gap brings whippet-related challenge

Ever the opportunist: Billy

It’s been a dramatic night for weather, with a detrimental effect on dog-proof gardens. The garden fence has finally succumbed to the forces of nature. It’s been battered beyond repair by the wind and Billy the whippet, escape artist extraordinaire, is very interested in the opportunities offered by the six-foot gap that’s opened up into our neighbour's garden.

We’re waiting for the fence man to arrive, but I think he’s likely to be rather busy today so it won’t get mended straight away. In the meantime, I’m working on an emergency barrier using garden furniture and the like.

I hope it works because this afternoon I’m off to London, leaving the dogs in the care of my other half who’ll have to chaperone Billy in the garden while I visit a friend and then spend tomorrow at Discover Dogs.
