I managed to escape from Mummy this evening. I was out of the cage and Mummy had taken my collar off so she could trim my neck when Hal distracted her – and that was it, I was outside in the garden in a flash. Hal immediately followed me, cornered me and kept me still until Mummy had caught up with us, but even so it felt wonderful to have some freedom again. As a reward for being good, Mummy then let me have a bit of time loose in the kitchen with my brother (but with the dog flap firmly locked closed) – until we started fighting and then it was straight back in the cage. Hope I have some time out of the cage again tomorrow.
