    Just been for a walk with Jess, along our usual route, up the main road and left into the field where I let her off lead. I had literally just let her off when she went scudding off as she does.........came back, ran back to a bush, came back, ran back to a bush.............curious, I put her back on the lead and went to the bush................to be confronted with a fire taking hold very quickly! Some older kids had been in there not five minutes before and thrown a lighter in to start it then legged it.....


    I phoned the fire brigade, they came and put it out, tho it had taken hold quickly it also started to die down just as quickly.....they've doused the whole lot of bushes so that it can't be relit!

    Clever Jess! Don't think I've got anything big enough to reward her. :D ;)

    Clever girl. Yes that will be the next thing now that the warm/dry weather is about. One of our favourite routes gets lit on fire and is black and ruined, already partly so from a small fire a few days back. They obviously cannot see the danger!!

    I found myself wishing they'd got caught in the middle of it when it went up, it caught VERY quickly...........I know it's wrong to wish kids harm, but these were old enough to know better!

    Also pleased Jess recognised it as not good, she usually goes diving into those bushed to see who's been out to play in her absence.....:glare:

    Indeed! Waggy tail, in fact it was almost wagging her!!

    She just devoured the contents of a pack of honey roasted ham, it's all I had good enough to reward her with!

    Good girl Jess - and well done you! She spotted it and you recognised a problem - pats on the backs all round there - some kids can be ghastly on times tho can't they!
