Next door have three children and we have always been plagued by their footballs coming over the fence but Hugo has sorted that problem out by ripping them up as soon as they come over - funnily enough he has several footballs of his own which he dribbles about the garden but has never damaged at all.
Hugo is now enjoying 3-4 walks a day and is very happy to meet new dog friends. Today I walked for the first time with my next door neighbour and her Jack Russell, Tinker - we used to walk daily with them with Sid, our old dog. He was overjoyed to see her and kept batting at her and leaping all around. We went for a nice walk along the canal and they seem to be getting on well so hope it continues.
