Once the building started we realised that Ollie was not going to be allowed outside while we were at work.
With fences gone and builders crawling everywhere, he was sure to make a runner!
Last weekend we spent several hours creating a small pen for him to live in during the day while we were away.
The girls in particularly, protested and were miserable at the prospect of him being alone and cooped up in such a small space.
Surprisingly though, during this first week, reports by the builders were that Ollie was strangely calm and happily entertained by the noisy goings on of our building intruders.
There was compensation to come for Ollie though! The best news for all was the realisation that at night time, Ollie had to sleep indoors with us! It was too cold and too far away in the back yard for him to be alone.

I don't think it took him too long to realise that time alone in a pen for just a few hours a day was by far worth it, when he could enjoy the warmth and comfort of being with his favourite fans during the night.

The coming winter months will probably be a little cramped upstairs for us all, but for Ollie and the girls a little more cosy with their furry friend by their side.
