in the late afternoon sun

A little idea of Jinks' last escape route down the curving brick path to the little stream which runs across the bottom of the garden

There he must have dared for once to get his little paws wet to complete his escape.

On the left is a corner of the enclosure which Ray constructed at great time and expense and which became Jinks' confinement ever after.
What a lovely garden Hazel, that little path looks very inviting! Can totally understand why Jinks felt the need to explore it! Happy memories

It was not such a great story at the time! We 3, Ray, me and our son, were out and about searching and I even made a hasty poster with Jinks' photo and put, at midnight, on lamp posts in the village!!!

Occasionally after a short period of v heavy rain, it floods the path at the bottom of the garden, never danger to the house, subsides quickly

I'm glad you asked that question as I found posts about it in 2012 and 2014!
