That horse thing

The horse next door is no longer next door! It's in MY yard!

It busted the top piece of wire and let itself into my grassy paradise!

There was a guy who was trying to get the horse back in the neighbours yard, but mum said to leave him here to eat! And eat he is! Though, he hasn't dented the grass at all!

I ran around barking at him, trying to make him fly back over the fence, all that got me was shut inside the house! Mum and dad are perfectly ok with the horse in my yard!

Mum went out and got some photos of him. She noticed he has some scratch marks down his back legs which are consistent with fence busting and jumping! There are even tufts of white horse hair in the grass! (mum took photos of that too, and the busted fence wire).

In mums opinion the wire was damaged at time of putting up, then strained well, then with the added pressure from the horse, it snapped. I wonder what the neighbours will think!

Mums happy she has a horse in the yard, dad is happy the grass is being partially mowed, I am not happy and can not relax! But the horse is happy, he's getting some grass in his belly! So I guess that is good! Apparently his owner will be here sometime after 11am to collect him. Good luck with that! He's a skittish one!

Wishing you many happy barky days!

The horse next door

Are we certain that it is a horse? It has 4 legs, I have 4 legs. It has a tail, I have a tail. It has 2 ears, I have 2 ears. Though, it is a weird shaped dog! It makes strange noises too!

Mum and Dad kept their word to the "horse" and dumped 3 large baskets of grass in its yard. Mum noticed that the grass is starting to grow in spots, but those are the same spots that the "horse" is eating!

If it is a big weird dog, why does it eat grass? I only eat grass to vomit!

It came real close to Mum, she must be gaining its trust. It was about a dog length (that is big dog length, not rodent dog length) away from her before it got worried about its proximity to her!

Its sopping wet. Its muddied its "shelter", which is nothing more than a large cage with a trampoline on top! Great for shade, but useless for rain! Dad wonders why they didn't offer it their wood shed as a shelter!

Dad said today that if the "horse" looses condition, they were going to call the pound or RSPCA!

If mum wasn't concerned about it she wouldn't have dumped a pile of grass on its side of the fence!

I still think its a weird shaped dog. And I still wonder why Mum and Dad growl at me for barking at it for not running up and down the fence like Slowmo did!

By the way, where is Slowmo, haven't seen him for a couple of days?!

Wishing you many happy barky days!

I stink.

My mum attacked me today. She had a spray bottle in her hand and, she made me stinky. I stink of tea-tree oil. She sprayed me with tea-tree oil!
Of course, there is a perfectly logical reason (according to mum) for this behaviour. She is still trying to combat my fleas!
She says I am guilty of aiding and abetting criminals in my coat! So every couple of days she sprays me and my bedding.
And she says that since doing this there have been less fleas in the house and less fleas on me. I must admit I am sleeping better for it! Not needing to scratch as much! But I do wish it didn't make me stink like this.
She sprays my more sensitive areas. Like my arm pits, my belly, and around my ears. She has even started with the top of my head!
She's hoping that the fleas will eventually get the message and move out! I hope so too!

Wishing you many happy barky (flea free) days!
