That’s the flora dealt with, now the fauna! The only animals that the dogs come into close contact with are the hedgehogs. We get these in the summer (I know it’s because they hibernate in the winter before anyone points that out!!) and they cause quite a stir in dogdom! There is plenty of evidence of rabbits, and I can see them from my bedroom window in the early mornings, but they disappear very quickly when they hear the door open and are gone before the dogs round the corner of the house!
One rustic forest resident I forgot to mention!!
