... the motorbike isn't there any more so I took our little pup to the end of the road and the person at the end decided to come out.
Mitzi wagged her tail, trying to be friendly.
He just stood in his doorway - totally within his rights!
Me an' Mitzi came home - totally within our rights!
If the bloke at the end of the road wants to protect the pavement outside his house, that's fine, as long as he realizes that we've got every right to walk down a public footpath - the council have confirmed that!
