Bark From The Park, When the sun comes out, so do the neighbours!

Molly The Wally does tennis!

Noisy neighbours in the garden is one of our pet hates.

After the endless months of rain we may now get a glimpse of sun and maybe a late summer here in good old Blighty. However when the sun comes out, the problem of noise raises its ugly head. The craze for back garden hot tubs now ranks among the top 10 causes of garden rage says an annual gardeners' survey. Noise from televisions and radios, late-night parties and children are the next top three. These are followed by power tools, house alarms, barbecue smoke and bright security lights. Bizarrely last come the smell of fabric conditioner and musical instruments. No mention at all of us furry friends then? My human sadly is the noisy one in our garden. The last incident happened only a few weeks ago. Awaking early and bored I ventured downstairs several times and took some of my prize tennis ball collection to bed for a bit of a chew. On awaking my human in a fit of pique threw the balls, all eight of them out of the window into the garden. Sometime later I sprang into action for a bit of a cat attack. My human ran out into the garden to unfortunately interfere, yet again. Sadly the slip on a tennis ball resulted in one grazed knee, two bruised elbows and some high pitched shrieking. The poor neighbours didn’t know what had happened. The moral of this story is humans should put all toys away safely, including those of mine, as that is one of their few uses. Oh well if you really don’t like any noise at all you can always go and live next door to a cemetery! What annoys you in your garden?


  1. I's have these squeeky balls, When Dad goes out late, when it's dark tooo's lock the shed, he alway's stamps on one.... So It's a high pitched squeek, followed by a curse word at the tops of his voice!!! I bet the neighbors luv's him :) I must remember to leave more balls out BOL.
    Yoo's have a great day, gonna be sunny the weekend, Yipee!!! xx

  2. Those pictures are priceless. I hope you are feeling better after having interfered with your dogs play time - that'll teach you!

  3. Thank you for stopping by our blog, Molly the Wally! You and my sissy share the same first name!

    Love ya lots,
    Mitch and Molly

  4. BOL to the photo Molly...... and the PIMMS is one of my peeps' fav drinks! I often leave my toys where they can squeak underfoot....keeps peeps on their toes!

  5. No worries about that here - Lightning destroys every tennis ball in sight:(

    BOL at your last pic.

    Woos - Phantom, Thunder, Ciara, and Lightning

  6. Hoomans can be such killjoys...I find it most exhilaratin' to makes my hoomans squeal and stomp, and curse, it's a highlight of mine...hehehe.
    My neighbors are loud and stoopid.


  7. Love that yard sign! Right now our garden is brown and dry. Walking in the grass sounds like walking on corn flakes. We really, really, really need rain!

  8. Annoying in my garden is all the bunny poop! The rabbits come through the fence to munch on the clover, and then Jimmy and Wilson munch on all the bunny poop! Ewwww!!!

  9. Glad the sun has come out way over there across the pond. By the way ... we have some special shampoo left over from Julep and Derby's bath if you want to come over for a 'spa treatment' ... hahahaha NOT!

    All the best and have a great day,

  10. I rather wonder if the noise of my jumping about on the trampoline with our Little2Legs Boy & Girl probably makes the most noise around here - barring lawnmowers (and I don't mean quiet sheep here!) - all day, all night.......(Mummy2Legs wonders if you've enough Pimms left in that bottle for her to join you - ha ha!_ x

  11. Your sign was very very got a good chuckle from it...well our yard like many others is brown and crispy...kinda like KFC chicken...only not as tasty! Mom says its the survival of the fittest when it comes to her garden year she is thinking about planting catci instead of hosta' is supposed to be 105+ this weekend...I am never ever ever gonna get to ride in my stroller again!!

  12. I really don't understand the purpose of humans picking up our toys! We are only going to get them all over the place again!
    Lovies, Miss Mindy

  13. I love that cat sign!! Someone has a great sense of humor...and of course Molly we love your picture too.
    Hugs Madi your BFFF

  14. We like the cat sign too. Our poor humans, with only 2 feet they have the strangest mishaps. I am sure mom would not have pulled her groin muscle is she had 2 more feet. I guess we need to watch out for them!

    Your friends,

    Murphy & Stanley

  15. Oh Molly, what a GREAT post today! That sign in the garden gave us a good chuckle this morning.

    Our garden is brown and crusty too! We're in a drought and have been doing a rain dance for weeks now. Guess we're not that good at the dance, bcuz we gots no rain at all! All of our flowers are flopped over at the knees butt that sure dont stop the critters and deer from munching on them all. If we do get rain, the plants will be perked up but they will be flowerless stems.

    1. This little Dog with a blog is awesome and too nice. Here I have watch out the complete detail regarding to it. So it is great.

  17. Good Gawd. What a hilarious post! We're sorry your Human grazed her knee and bruised her elbows...though she can't say it wasn't her own fault for not putting the toys at the right place.
    Flies...why flies? They make Mommy say unmentionable words and mumble endlessly...that's really annoying when all we wanna do is to soak up the sun and enjoy the scenery.

  18. I love that sign. I need to put one of them in the condo hall. The people smoke out there and it does smell bad when we open our door.

    Have a great weekend.

    hugs, Max

  19. LOVE the Yard Sign!!! Butt so sorry about the ill treatment you must endure at the paws of your human. SIGH... WHEN oh WHEN will they EVER learn?

  20. oh nooo! My Mom feels your "pain" about the tennis balls (and she hopes you are ok!) She tripped on my brother's KONG toy the other day but thankfully didn't get hurt like you.
    Mom is weird and she LOVES the smell of fabric softener when it comes through outside! MOL!!
    Mom and i also LOVE your photos!

  21. A-hahahahaha! That picture is hilarious with the cat caption, Mum almost fell off the chair!

  22. Oh my, it seems that your garden can be eventful!

    We have deer that pass through out back every once in awhile, but they don't seem to hurt anything. Elka doesn't seem sure of what they are. She'll stare and stare, and if I let her (I don't) she'll bark and run around a little. Our neighbors are pretty quiet, though!

  23. LOL, Molly Molly....hiw you always crack me up. Who is that cat?

  24. BOL you tell'm!!!! Cause my Lily is the best toy squeaker in the West
    Benny & Lily

  25. You know what I hates about the gardens? The stinky people children who keep stealing my lawn ornaments. And breaking them! If ever I catch them I will sink all of my 9 tooths into their stealer hands!

  26. Molly, one of my favorite adult beverages is a Pimm's cup (best drank in New Orleans, LA) I'm glad to see you sporting the liquor, but what's the drinking age over there? You do look a little young...

  27. Floyd is pretty annoying in the garden... Wait.... Ummm... I guess I can be a bit barkie... Hmmm...

  28. I know it is bad, but My Vickie and I laughed and laughed about the tennis ball incident, though we do hope your human is not hurting too much.

    Really great picture.....

  29. Molly....
    I love, love, love that closing picture with the cat and "his" cigarette (butt) addiction!! Too funny!! I laughed so hard!! ;op
    Love, Raelyn.... And Rose, my BEAUTIFULLY UNIQUE "Mystery Dog"!!

  30. heehee, Molly, what a funny post and photos! You have quite the activity in your garden. Hope your weekend is sunny& warm!
    Your furbuddies,
    joules & prescott

  31. Funny pic - love it!!! We have the Great Lawn-Mower-Race from all sides. But we are happy to have a little bit sun now.BTW: It makes no difference if you are in neighborhood with a cemetery, we have ours after the two next houses :o)))

  32. I agree that humans need to pick up their toys and cigarette butts, etc, because there's too many dangers involved otherwise!
    Glad you had some sunshine after all of the rain you had!
    Thanks for your silly caption entry for my Silly Saturday Photo Caption Contest! I think it's a winner!

  33. Please send the rain our way. We are desperate for it!

  34. Ha, love your pictures!
    We live out in the country...but there is always the weekend chain saws and target practice. Why do the neighbors have to cut things down and shoot at things on a peaceful Sunday? BOL
