  • On a lovely March day Pops and I set off to amble to the allotment via St James Green dog park. Here Pops can pick up her peemails, meet her friends, and run, twirl leap and tumble. Afterward we walked to the plot, we arrived about 10.30 a.m. I gave a bowl of water to Pops and treats then made a cup of tea. I sat with Pops enjoying the sun for a while before I clipped Pops lead to a fence stake alongside where I was working. I was digging out grass to extend a bed and adding compost from one of the bins. Pops was dozing on the grass when a flock of geese flew overhead and began to circle in a pre-migration flight, at the same time a car passed the plot.

    Pops woke up began barking and leaping suddenly there was the sound of cracking and I saw Pops flying past me trailing the stake. I ran and just managed to grab the stake as she streaked off down the path. I reeled her in and clipped her back onto my shed - she couldn't drag that after her surely? Oh sigh - life with Pops! Time for another cup of tea.
