She tore out into the garden and I think it was touch and go whether the rather fat pigeon would manage to take off in time and escape.
It did, but only because it only managed to get as far as the top of the compost bin. As the dog is a Jack Russell cross she couldn't reach it and the pigeon was then able to make it on to the fence and away.
The pigeon wasn't the only one to get a fright today.
I was driving home after collecting my L&M from work when a jogger suddenly ran out from behind a parked van. I slammed on the brakes and managed to stop in time, she did apologise, she was wearing headphones so hadn't heard me coming.
