Destructo Dogs

Aww, don't they look so sweet, laying there and snoozing like that? This picture was taken just a few scant hours after they ate a raspberry plant that was awaiting transplant into the front garden beds. I caught them as they were going back for the second potted raspberry plant. The plant was thorny, people! And yet they still chewed it down to the nub! What the @#$!!, dogs?!!!

  1. Dogs!! Great photo, and I am enjoying your posts. We had to send a friend's Jack Russell to the vet after he found the leavings of a successful deer hunter in the woods. Luckily the vet had a wonderful "bone frag magnet" and the JR is with us still.

  2. *sympathy*

    My lab mix, who's now 12 1/2, ate the entire first flush of buds off of eight brand new Jackson & Perkins roses when she was a puppy. I remember how horrified and perturbed I was. You have my deepest sympathies!

  4. @Jenn Forager, @Michelle - thanks for stopping by! It's nice to have some sympathy *wry grin*.

    @Dave: they only command those dogs recognize anymore is that of their stomachs... (but I do love those rotten dogs).

  6. @Chance: if you mean "short bus" special, then yes, yes they are... (kidding, kidding!)

  7. They may learn a lesson when those thorns are fully "processed" through the system!

  8. Seriously - that must have been prickly. I have a little girl who loves to eat poop - the fresher the better! Among other things too..

    Great site. One day I will live on a farm and put all my internet farm knowledge to use!
