Anyone want a carrot eating dog???

Post  rjsehm6 on 9/9/2010, 3:31 pm

So, here I am reading everyone's critter problems thinking.....wow, I am so lucky I don't have those problems. Then yesterday I get the dreaded phone call "Mom, chewy ate one of the carrots Evil or Very Mad What was "That Dog" thinking? Did he not see how hard I have worked on my new SFG?? Did he not notice how it is a family celebration when something sprouts??? The only thing that saved my day was my nine year old daughter. She proceeded to say on the phone, "Mom, no worries, I took it out of his mouth and replanted it" When I got home and looked at it, well, she definitely tried but she planted the leaves in the dirt and left the roots out....haha. Made me smile and Chewy lived to see another day.

Chewy -- I love it! Do you have another named Solo?

That doggie knows what's good for him! Mine love carrots, so if I get any to actually grow this fall, I will be sure to put fencing over them.

They will also dig up anything that has been freshly fertilized with organic fertilizer! Probably they're attracted to fish meal or bone meal.

I used to have a Lab-mix who craved tomatoes. He'd pick one off the vine, take a bite or two out of it, and then leave it. Drove me nuts!

Guess you just got to love them. I am praying that he wont do it again but I get the feeling this is the first of many. I also have a bird feeder and a sunflower seed must of dropped and planted itself. I was thrilled to see it growing and just when it was ready to give a flower, again, my Chewy decided to eat the leaf. I googled it and it says it can be poisonous to dogs so I had to pull it out with so much sadness. He never does this sort of thing but of course, it has to happen to my SFG Sad

Our lab and I have an agreement -- I give him carrots, broccoli stalks, and cauliflower stalks, and he leaves my garden alone.

So far, we've both held up our end of the bargain.

He goes out and lays by it, but I've never seen him so much as put a paw in my MM. He's curious, and watches what I do, but he's been a very good boy.

Our four ankle biters love to run through my SFG's, which is very irritating! I had to put little fences around them until the plants got big enough to deter them. Unfortunately I forgot about that when I pulled up the dead sunflowers and hung the heads on the fence for the birds. I planted lettuce and cilantro in the bed and woke up the next morning to paw prints throughout the churned up bed. Little buggers! Very Happy
