Yesterday my neighbour called round.
Let me backtrack to fill in this story. This couple have lived in the house for about 3 years - and don't even say hello if we both are going out of our door at the same time. I have sent them a Christmas card every year - and not received one. Still - no noise, no problems, no worries.
Last Sunday night I was awake a lot of the night listening to a puppy crying ... then Monday night ... Tuesday and most of Wednesday!
So, Thursday eveing there is my neighbour - plus squirming puppy. She came to apologise and to give me a card from Ziggy to say he was sorry for keeping me awake.
I immediately said that it was not a problem, as they do learn - Jiffy had a couple of very bad nights ... our previous dog had odd hours for quite a few weeks!
Anyway - last night ... SILENCE
So I think that he was probably warned that if he was a bad boy then he would be sent back to see me ... It worked!
