Letter to a LBD

Dearest Little Black Dog,

I very much appreciate the habit that you've been in for most of your doggy life, of leaving your... err... 'nuggets' around the perimeter of the property fenceline, rather than where I would be likely to walk.

This is a very positive attribute and I would like to encourage it.

Now, I realise that the backyard is not as huge as you were accustomed to in your youth. However, it is big compared to many yards in Australia, let alone the rest of the world. Believe me. There is plenty of room.

So please, please, PLEASE don't leave nuggets under the washing line.

... Especially not on windy days.


The chance that I remembered to do a 'poo patrol' prior to hanging the washing?

... Approximately None.

nuggets hey?

Femina, Did you not know that Border Collies are among the smartest of the breeds of dogs?

Givinya, You are most certainly correct that this behaviour is not on.

LDHBE, Yes, nuggets. This is what one water supply and sewerage engineer of my acquaintance calls them. I have no idea why.
