There’s always something happening at Bracken House.
Today, we had a young Staffordshire Bull Terrier running loose on the land. She wanted to play with the ponies and the chickens. She even had a dip in the pond.
I managed to catch her and took her for a walk behind the nursing home to see if her owner was looking for her, but it was raining and blowing a gale and there was no-one to be found.
I put her in one of the stables and telephoned the Ashfield District Council stray dogs line. To my amazement, the dog warden turned up in about 15 minutes and while he was here, the owner telephoned the Council to report her missing.
The dog was safely returned to her owner and peace returned to the land.
Yet again the Council have proved how efficient they are. Far better than any other Council I’ve had dealings with.
