When you’re sat in your garden, you generally hope to relax in peace without prying eyes. That’s why most people install big fences to separate their garden from their neighbours. But some fences don’t keep nosey neighbours out, and Jennifer Bowman had a special kind of neighbour trying to peek into her garden.
One day Jennifer was out in her yard with her dog, Olive, when she heard a strange noise coming from her fence. A sound that sounded like a squeak.
Catching movement out of the corner of her eye, she looked to the fence but saw nothing. She could have sworn she saw someone peeping over her fence, but there was nobody to be seen.
Looking away, she suddenly heard the squeaking sound again and whipped her head to the fence. Sure enough, a furry face was staring back at her.
It turns out that the neighbour’s cheeky German Shepherd, Penny, was desperate to see what they were up to and was jumping up to peer over the 6 foot high fence.
Finding peeking Penny’s antics hilarious, Jennifer decided to do something to make the dog’s life a bit easier. After thinking about what would help the nosey neighbour, she had an idea.
Digging through her toolbox, she pulled out her electric drill and headed to the fence. Don’t worry, she wasn’t planning on attacking the cute canine! Lining the drill up against the fence, she made three very special holes. Two for a pair of eyes and one for an inquisitive nose.
Jennifer’s neighbours had been worried that Penny’s nosey antics would annoy her and intrude on her privacy, but she handled the situation perfectly. Now the mischievous pup could peer into their garden without disturbing their privacy.
It’s not just Penny that loves the new fence set up, Jennifer’s own dog, Olive, loves it too. The pair of pooches now share their treats with each other and have become the best of friends.
Some people are possessive of their privacy but Jennifer welcomed peeking Penny’s curiosity and did something kind to improve the happiness of both pups. What a wonderful neighbourly thing to do!
