Daisy the dog update


Daisy dog in dressing room For those that have asked for an update on Daisy the disappearing dog, heres what she does nowadays when I'm at work!

As you'll know from previous blogs, madam has taken to escaping – a la Houdini! Hours and hours have been spent painstakingly reinforcing the perimeter fence and I finally thought I'd cracked it when the last extra higher layer had been added to the field-side fence. Houd-daisy, however, had other ideas…


Now she lays happily in my dressing room in 'her place' – sleeps for hours, gets visits and walks and seems content. At least I know she's not dodging traffic on the A25 – again! Hopefully she'll settle whilst I'm away – my neice is coming to house/dog sit, so maybe by the time I come back Daisy will no longer be in season and eternally seeking 'man-dog'! Lol.

Isabella's chair On another note, my other neice made me laugh recently – just look at Isabella watching Peppa Pig on her own mini-armchair! Now this girl knows how to relax – she could teach us all a thing or two! Who does she remind you of I wonder? 🙂


More next week about the salt-cave visit which I'm going to tonight (Friday 28th!)

Best wishes

    Hi Debs
    I can totally relate to your probs with Daisy and the fence. When I had my litter of boxer pups, Jack and Delilah caused me no end of problems clambering over a 5 foot something wall into the garden next door – one particular elderly lady was quite vociferous in her objection to this! It was quite ingenious how they used to manage it; half way up the wall was like a ledge, and they would rest their back paws on it and their front paws on the top of the wall, and over they would go. Good job next door’s gate was always locked. I don’t live there any longer, so now we just have to make sure the fence is secure. I don’t think Oscar and Caspar would jump it anyway.
    Oscar’s eye seems to be fine now he’s had the ulcer removed, and that lamp shade thingy! Daisy is looking fit and well. They couldn’t look anything but, the way we take care of them. I look after mine better than I do myself!
    Take care, Debs, and see you back on air soon.
    p.s. any news on the possible petite fashion ranges?

    Hi Deb,
    Daisy seems to be sorted for the time being but I think you need a 6ft panel fence, not cheap but peace of mind.
    Seeing Isabella I now know what is meant by being laid back “Bless”
    Best wishes

    Hi, Debbie,
    Houdini is a little minx, considering there is hip problems she can certainly jump. You need to have higher stronger wire. This is why all our labs are in secure kennels with runs so that they cannot escape, especially when they are in season. Hope you enjoyed your visit to the salt caves.
    Speak to you soon.
    Love Jean XX

    Louise I have to tell you there’s the funniest clip on youtube of a bulldog having fun jumping on a trampoline – have you seen it?
    ps no more news apart from they’re planning the petite ranges – it’ll be some time yet I think hon – will keep you informed if I hear anything!

    Hi Debs
    Thanks for the update re fashion; I know you’ll let me know when you hear anything.
    I love bulldogs anyway; if I didn’t love boxers so much, a bulldog would be my choice, or a dog de bordeaux.
    The trampolining video was brilliant. Cas would have one heck of a time and I don’t think having 3 legs would inhibit him bouncing around at all. It would have to be quite a strong trampoline to prevent Oscar from jumping through it! Did you see the video of the baby bulldog playing? It was absolutely gorgeous. The thumbnail made it look like a boxer pup but, once expanded, it’s copious build made it obvious it was a bulldog.
    Hope your brood are, like mine, thriving. I’ve got them on a gluten free diet right now. Don’t know whether I’ll stick to it; there are some whiffy smells being emitted!
    Why aren’t you going to Hollywood, btw?
    Take care and speak soon.
