    You could consider giving the Pea budget a minor cut.

    Might be possible to buy a new car also.

    You're welcome

    The offending dog has a collar, so grab a leash and tie it up.

    Teach the dog what is acceptable behavior, and what is not.

    ^^^, ^...

    Yeah... you're both correct of course... but it's a difficult one because I have no problem with her swimming in the pond, but just not when I'm fishing.

    I was responsible for her behaviour yesterday as it was so amusing to see her chasing the lure... but I found today it wasn't a difficult one at all to solve.

    I forget that Maya has some breeding behind her and is quite intelligent... not like our other mutts. A stern 'NO' was all it took today to stop her jumping in the pool while I was fishing.

    Maya appears to absolutely love fishing and I find myself spending more and more time with her and less and less time with the wife. I've been addicted to fishing since my daughter's age and it's great to find a fishing companion.

    Maya seems to enjoy just watching the float - even in the rain - and my plan is to train her to bark when the float goes under. An impossible task maybe.



    Dan also enjoys fishing but is too old to stay out long these days.



    A nice pla nin today for fish an' chips tomorrow for tea.

    I wonder what Maya was dreaming about... a monster snakehead maybe?!!

    Damn, this pond idea of yours sure has worked out well. Idyllic.

    Mendip I'm just curious, have you ever tried one of these little house lizards for bait? They just look like if you put them on a hook something would eat it.

    ^ I haven't Tunk and I'm a bit of a reptile lover so I won't go hunting our ghekos for bait.

    But... in saying that, Maya regularly catches and kills ghekos... she eats many but also leaves a lot of dead ones outside the back door. I don't know why she likes to kill ghekos and she's our only dog that does... I've tried to discourage it but can't watch her all the time.

    Next time she kills one I'll try and retrieve it before she eats, and stick it on a hook. Maybe that will catch one of our snakehead?

    ^Actually, as per the koi fish, they are not keen on them. I saw few times when the chinchok dropped in the fish pond, it has not excited them.

    Well I like the geckos, they stay outside and mind their own business. The house lizard comes in your house and shits on everything.
