I was at dog training class today and the leader ended with a sad tale and warning to us all that I thought would be useful to pass on. She had been contacted by one of her clients to tell her that their dog had been let out into the garden for a wee as usual but as the owners hadn't been out there for a couple of weeks they hadn't noticed that either a fox or their dog had dug a gap under the fence and had got out of the garden. The first they knew was a few minutes after they had let the dog out they got a phone call to let them know that their dog had been run over and sadly the dog died.

As we don't go into the garden so frequently ourselves it's a good idea to check that your garden is still a secure place every few weeks during the winter. Especially after heavy winds that might loosen fences etc.
Lets not let this happen to anyone elses dogs.

That's so sad. But thanks for the reminder as my parents had a fox in their garden the other night and they think that got in under the fence, which dad's blocked up again as Betty is at theirs this week.

i have an invisible fence, which keeps her in pritty good, but it does not stop praetors from coming in ,it only stops ginger from going out ,so that is why i never put her out with out me being out there with her, cause we have fox,and skunks and raccoons around here ,and they all can be very nasty...Lumpy

I'm pleased to say, that in preparation for Summer's arrival ( still over 4 weeks to go) I had our fence checked and fixed, I even had couple of fence panels completely replaced as they looked quite bad and I was worried that could break easily over the winter, so now our garden is officialy puppy safe :)
