Monty Don shares heartache as beloved dog is involved in freak accident 'Impaled herself'

MONTY DON- a host on Gardeners' World - has opened up on his dog Nellies "near miss" after the golden retriever was rushed to the vets following a freak accident.

Monty Don, 65, told Twitter of the incident: "Last night Nellie had a very near miss.

"So please DONT THROW STICKS FOR DOGS."
