'Hello ... is there anyone there?'
" Mum, Rosy's at the door ...
... I think we should leave her there ... it's okay I'll have her bone :-) "
Rosy is the only one of the dogs that is allowed to remain outside on her own when we come in. We don't have a choice most of the time, she runs off up the hill after rabbits and usually manages to bring one back with her for a snack.
She's a sensible little thing, and although I don't worry too much when she takes off into the woods I am always relieved when I see her little face back at the window :-)
