Long story short.
Thought a dog had escaped today on a job that I said I'd keep an eye on whilst going in and out a gate.
Well, it was silly of me to say this when I had to open & close the gate a zillion times as it was a tree lopping job.
Spent the arvo stressing out whilst the dog had gone through his doggy door back into the house.
In the future I will state that I will take NO responsibility for peoples animals, simple as that.
Bit of a sucker, being an animal lover.
