    Doesn't your Missus mind having all the dogs and dogshit around when you go back offshore for a Month?

    I don't see her involved in any of these rescue efforts

    ^ She's cool with it.

    At least I assume so... I'll have to ask her sometime!

    Zack will join the 'outside' pack. We've got four dogs living with us and I'm allowed no more... which is fair enough. Four is enough.

    The wife accepts that if she expects me to live in the back end of nowhere, then I need my hobbies. Besides, the gardener takes care of all dog related matters when I go back offshore to work!

    I like your style i.e. "I'll have to ask sometime"
    Maybe it will be bought up in the divorce court?

    Anyway we have 5 dogs at our place 2 of which are "blow-ins" that did not originally belong to us.
    If the Missus lets anymore come and stay I'll be having a say cause if you want to look after them properly in takes an effort not only money.

    But having said all of that I have found it really interesting watching the pack dynamics over the past 3 years.
    Until then I had never had more than a single dog so never seen how the pack works before.

    I never knew that dogs actually flea each other but often wondered how they handled the fleas that live where they can't reach for themselves.

    And dogs have a character around other dogs that is sometimes different to that which they have around people.

    Interesting critters.

    ^ Yes, the pack dynamic is interesting to watch. The dogs avoid a serious fight at all costs and we just get the occasional problems when a new puppy grows bigger than a resident dog... the puppy then wants that position in the pack. They usually sort it all out amongst themselves with a few small scraps.

    There are times when you wish the vet could have done his job properly... OK, Anna can't have puppies but it would be good if she didn't come into heat at all. There have been dogs outside barking all night.

    At the start of the morning dog walk today, out the back of our house we were greeted by this...



    Anna and Vigo follow us on the dog walk every single day, but with Anna on heat we had a few extra followers today.

    On we continued... with eight dogs following.



    Twenty minutes in, and a few had dropped away, but we'd been joined by a white Labrador type cross... never seen him before.



    Ten more minutes... and still being followed.



    And now on the home straight... now I know what the Pied Piper felt like!

    We'd been joined by another white dog, and that's Zack way in the background. He joined us for a while but he's too old for all the fuss and competition. My plan of enticing him back home using Anna as bait is starting to look a bit flawed.



    And back home. Only the die-hards remain, and well done to Vigo for trying to protect his girlfriend for the entire walk... but he's got his work cut out.

    Yesterday there were so many male dogs out the back of our house that something had to be done. Anna was snapping at them and obviously distressed and Vigo was worn out trying to fight them off. The missus was out for the day... so I brought Anna and Vigo into the safety of our pond area. This worked well, although even at the end of the day, several hours later, there were still some dogs waiting for Anna out the back of our house. Thankfully most had given up and dispersed.

    Before school today we popped down to the pond to see if they'd had a good night and to see how they were doing, and to give them one of NPT's bones each.

    It was a mistake for my daughter to give Anna a cuddle...



    On the way back to the house... Anna's pheromones must be pretty potent... and my daughter was in danger of learning the facts of life way too young!

    I reckon if you could bottle these hormones you could really be onto something.



    And when I got home, after the school run... all was as it should be. Puppy love!



    Lucky Vigo!
