These days Maggie isn’t much of a guard dog. Whereas before she would sit up and take notice of unexpected sounds or footsteps on the pontoon, now she snoozes the time away, and the only time she’s likely to move, is to roll over!
Tonight lying here in bed, she is asleep beside me. Nothing unusual in that, but I heard something outside and it unnerved me.
Our garden in flanked on three sides, but one fence is six foot high, the other 2 seven feet high. We have a locked and bolted gate from the drive into the garden, and a secondary gate which is also locked from the drive to the road.
So, to hear someone outside the back was unsettling.
I turned the bedroom light off and opened the blinds but the outside PIR hadn’t fired, so no-one was there. Then I saw a movement close to the window and began to chuckle.
