A short video of the neighbourhood

I made this last night as I went for a pretty fantastic massage in the nice hotel 10 minutes away. Met the GM of the hotel too and I hope we'll be able to get involved in a scheme to help the local environment and people. Hurrah!

The puppies fight. A lot.

I didn't realise how much until I started to video things and then I realised they were always trying to outdo each other in order to get food or attention. I'd like them to chase crows for this but am too lazy to train them. As you'll see from the attached, I'm too lazy when here to even get gloves!

They are nice to each other a lot too though. And they kill bad things at times too.  And this technique seems to have stopped them from fighting too much.
