  1. If it’s any comfort, this is much nicer to look at than Zoe’s little “find” this afternoon. I heard an odd crunching noise and found our sweet little Border Collie pup curled up on the rug in front of the couch, chewing on…the head from one of the chickens I butchered this morning.
    Yes, I shouldn’t have left the basin on the porch. Yes, I shouldn’t have let her go outside unattended. Totally my fault. But…Zoe: did you HAVE to bring in a CHICKEN HEAD?!?

  2. Mainecelt….one of my dogs LOVES chicken bones…loves them! (and the response to eating chicken bones….metamucil on white bread…the idea, wraps itself around the sharp shards of chicken bone so the coming out time doesn’t cut the inside of the dog…sigh…itsn’t a sad that I even know this)….
    SB…he looks completely innocent….but at least he won’t need the treatment I describe above…

  3. Sam oh Sam, You have to learn the difference between a weed and a flower. But your cuteness makes up for it.

  4. Uncooked bones won’t splinter, mompriest, but that’s no help if they snatch cooked ones!

  5. I’m completely ignorant in regards to plants – will it grow back next year? And as for the difference between a weed and a flower, when we had just moved in here G&T took out a lovely bed of chrysanthemums in our back bed before I could stop him and tell him how much I loved the flowers! So, Sam I’m thinking it was an innocent mistake.

  6. Oh, Sam. If dogs didn’t have such heartbreakingly sweet faces, they would get in a lot more trouble for their naughtiness.

  7. uhm… he didn’t dig up and eat the bulbs right? cuz tulips and irises among other bulbs are poisonous for our furry fellows.

  8. And they do love to be out in the garden with us, don’t they?
    Smokey is so funny. He knows he’s not supposed to dig. But when he sees me digging, he thinks he has permission to start digging.
