Dogs are a pain for gardeners if for no other reason than just running through
them. Seems my cat can walk in the gardens all day and not bend over a single
plant but the dog can do alot of damage in just a few seconds. A single shot in
the but with a cheap BB gun or an air gun with only one or two pumps of air
will keep it out for a long time and wont bring the judge's wrath either.
My dog keeps the moose out of the garden. I don't begrudge her the occasional
plant that she steps on. She's a bounder (a big Boxer) and normally clears the
garden in one leap. She _has_ learned that I don't holler or say bad words when
she walks on the garden paths though.
My cat leaves tootsie rolls, but only in the flower garden.
Now the mule who rolled in the middle of the freshly tilled garden got tied up!
OK, I won't. But I just got back fropm vacation and was mightily tempted
to point out to "Charlie" that when I was young, rock salt in a 12 gauge
was used on dogs and vandals with equal ease (and results).
oh, i must borrow this?
may i use it?
read and post daily, it works!
Instead of seeing things as imagined, learn to see them as they are. When you
can see everything as it is, you will also
yourself as you are.

Sure, why not? I 'borrowed' it from someone.... More

Despite the troll accusation, this is actually what I did the first coupla
times I saw it. It worked for a while. Now the dog is back and the BB gun is
broken. I've decided that I'm just going to rope the dog, take it back, and
tie it to their front porch. Hopefully that'll send the message.
