Sometimes I wonder if I have any brain cells! I never seem to learn from my mistakes!
I came in for a drink shut the door as hounds were out and about. Door crashes open - Duncan has jumped up and as it is a drop handle, door is open.
In flood four hounds, very pleased with themselves. I start to usher them out and Duncan grabs a newspaper running outside with it. Dungeon follows before I have a chance. Dungeon stops nearly tripping me. I chase Duncan who has gone across the vegetable garden and through the hedge - not before shredding part of the paper. I pick it up.
All this takes no longer than two minutes - I return top my yard to find that all four are playing 'shred the papers' !
They had taken several papers out and having great fun killing them.
I should have thought to throw them out first and then chase the ring leader.
