    Might need to invent some noxious disease for Gemma to have that would not go well in pool, like the runs, and dags.

    It might also help to give the woman your (mobile) phone number so she can ring when she gets tempted.

    But I think what she really needs is her own dog. And a mower guy.

    Would she be a good home for a rescue or would she just lose it to another snake. Give her the web address of bc rescue if there is one. or maybe cattle dog rescue, cos I think they'd deal with snakes better.

    AND what about if Gemma did escape her care (Dod forbid) and say caused a traffic accident. As Gemma is micro chipped to you, YOU would be responsible for repair of any damage!!!

    Thanks for all the replies guys. Yep the more I think about it the more I'm thinking that she just can't borrow Gemma at all.

    The last time Gemma got out she went in their big pond. Which is full of leeches.
    leeches.jpg This is what she looked like the last time she got out.

    Today she took her in their solar heated pool. So it wasn't as bad but still if she gets wet before being brushed it's still hard work and damaging to her coat.

    But now I know why Gem sits and looks thru the fence, it's rural mesh fencing, because she knows exactly where the pool is. This dog never gives up. I'm going to find a local place to take her, either that or I'll travel down to Bayview and let her have a swim there to break the cycle, which will need to be done with Gemma. She can't remember how to do a 20mtr send away from one session to the next, but ask her to open the peddle bin and she can damn well remember that.

    If she comes to ask to take her for a walk, I'll suggest I come with her and take a couple of the other dogs with me, Gemma will get a walk and so will the others, but if she asks to take her in the pool I'm just going say she's just been washed.

    And yes I'm going to give her my mobile good idea.

    And no I wouldn't recommend her as a good home, the fences need repair, she has a job, two kids in high school and has just gone back to Uni.

    She doesn't have her own mower, just gets someone in when they can't get to the clothes line I think. Which is a real shame, its a beautiful home, with about 2 acres cleared land.

    Sad.

    She does seem to be missing a dog in her life. Maybe the occasional walk will get that out of her system, though Gemma looking wistfully at her water can't help.

    Hope you find an answer that works for all of you.
