    Where else to expect dogs to play, except in a garden.

    Considering the requirements of dogs is an essential part of gardening (for those who have dogs).

    Ditto, cats.

    I wondered whether Nige was demanding better terms and conditions.

    I also miss Nigel he adds personality to the show but the chickens are just glory hunters and do not really add to the garden.

    I have yet to see a garden complete with dog agility course, which some dogs really enjoy.

    We know Nige likes to do tricks with potatoes.

  • Going off subject a bit, sorry, we went to a caravan site in Norfolk last year and on the 2 adjoining pitched were 2 couples and between them they had 6 dog, complete with Crufts style agility course, the dogs were no problem, just the owners giving them instructions very loud voices.Interesting though, but will not be returning to that site.

    I hadn't missed Nigel until you pointed it out, must have been too interested in what MD had to sayimage.

  • Please bring back Nigel,Thats why I watch Monty in his garden,well partly!

  • I'm a Nigel fan too...he adds hugely to the warmth of the setting and so well behaved.

  • Monty tweeted during the week that Nigel had unexpectedly ended up at the vets with some degree of acute mobility issue so I assume he is on bed rest.

  • So that's what happened to Nigel! Poor thing. I too missed him. It's lovely to see him at Monty's side in the garden and obviously enjoying himself. Hope he's back soon. My dog Lily (standard Poodle) is always with me in the garden and I have to keep stopping whatever I'm doing to throw the ball for her. She's great company. Somehow, I think that dogs and gardens go together.

    I am yet another fan of Nigel, and therefore missed him a lot. I could watch him for hours, for he has such a lovely nature it seems.
