SQUIRRELS AND DOGS: Due to recording my excitement at seeing a Red Squirrel in the IOW, I forgot to mention we ‘bumped’ into Bob Cairns over there, who likened himself to a Gray Squirrel, which was probable why I forgot to mention him. Sorry Bob. Grovelling complete. We have been looking after our dog again this week for family and of course walking him on the Downs where we noticed a large amount of dog waste still being left on pavements and on walking paths on the downs. Then we read of the possibility of upping the fine to a thousand pounds and got to wondering how that would be policed. The idea is that we are supposed to report it to the dog warden after drawing it to the attention the dog owners. Good luck with that then.
