It is Sunday afternoon: 6th March

We have been working outside in the garden today sectioning off our veg patch and the mud to try and keep our pup (and the house) clean.  We had intended dividing the garden anyway and had already moved our conifers from the junk patch some time ago and bought some more to make a ‘hedge’ border.

Typically when you want something to grow pretty fast it doesn’t so we have helped it along a little by putting a chain link fence across the garden and Hubby will make a gate to go under the clematis archway for access to our veg garden. It’s been a long day and we still have work to do, but the bulk of it is done now and Maya will have to learn to poo somewhere else, though she has gone in other places in the garden so we are confident she will adjust. Wee’s are sussed.
She has been helping though by running off with the hammer and pliers, and has invented a new screwdriver blade we call the dog tooth.

She was excellent on our walk this morning. We met up with a lot of people, some with dogs, and at least they weren’t barkers. She was good with all of them so we were very pleased with her.
We shall be having new neighbours at the bottom of the garden in a few months. Hubby met them today and they are about our age. They have a small dog and Hubby heard it barking. Little Daisy next door is also a barker and Maya won’t do a thing outside if she can hear her.

Lunch today was overcooked so although OK for me, Hubby couldn’t eat his fish so had soup instead. When I went up the road to get a gate latch, hinges and wire staples, I nipped into Greggs and got him a sausage roll for later.

Take care and keep safe everyone.


About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    I know how the garden is an attractive spot – our dog Ranger loved to run amok in the garden. We eventually had to fence it off so he couldn’t eat the green tomatoes!!

    • We were worried about the onions and were going to fence them in anyway, but bad weather stopped play, which as it happens, was just as well. We have clay soil here and our garden gets waterlogged at the bottom. Maggie usually didn’t go down that far, but Maya treats it like a race track!
