Then just after 4 Polly decides to start whimpering and snuffling round outside our bedroom door. At first I wondered if she was chasing rabbits as she dreamt, so I gave it a couple of minutes. She still wasn't happy so I let her out so she could have an early sniff round the perimeter. Once she had been sorted out, and settled back down, everything went back to being quiet again.
Half past bloody four and what the blue blazes was that???? It sounded like puppies, rather loud puppies. The dogs were not overly keen on this either, as it sounded louder than if they were out in the street. So clothes on and off to investigate, I didn't need a torch as the first fingers of dawn were starting to lighten the sky. Sure enough some sod had dumped two puppies over our wall. Now our wall goes all the way round our house and it is about five foot high, so unless these puppies have landed by parachute someone had deliberately dumped them there. I had a quick look out of the gate and there was no one about so whoever it was must have scarpered. Once I had caught sight of these pups I had a pretty shrewd idea who was responsible, as he did the same last year, and not far off the year before that. It's a bloke that I call the one arm bandit. As far as I can tell he hasn't got a good track record with animals, his missing arm bears testament to that as a horse supposedly had enough of being beaten by him. It bit his arm and then threw him, because he didn't get it treated soon enough he ended up losing most of it.
I kept on checking on the two pups throughout the day, as I am not convinced that they are old enough to be away from their mother yet. Every time they came near the gate our three dogs were going ballistic. So I would have to move them away from the gate muttering and mumbling as I did so. Eventually this afternoon I spotted the one arm bandit and said that he could take his puppies away with him. Even though he shrugged his shoulders it's funny how he knew what I was on about. I was working out earlier if we had kept all of the dogs that have been dummped over the wall or outside the gate we would have over a dozen by now. We did try keeping one a couple of years back but that bloody thing bit me a couple of times. There is definitely something to be said for the saying, "You can take a dog out of the street, but you can't take the street out of the dog". So now that he has hopefully taken them back home with him, I might get a good night's sleep. However looking at the weather forecast there is meant to be plenty of banging and crashing going on tonight and tomorrow. Oh deep joy !!!!!
