Beware of Dog

Puppies and gardens don't really go hand in hand. Since Murray's master was out of town for the day, I thought I would take him out for a walk and a romp in the garden afterwards. For some reason he seems to love playing in my garden. He goes from mild mannered lazy pup into a crazy frenzy. He launched off the deck onto my early blooming rhodo that I was happy to see two blooms starting. Ran in and out of the gardens snatching bits of plants on the way.

A little reminder why I don't have a dog. Nice to spend a little time with and take him home again. I'm sure it's the same with grandchildren. I think next time we might go to the park instead:).

You are so right about puppies (dogs for that matter) and gardens. Our Lab used to dig holes big enough to plant fairly mature trees.

I've looked at some of your archived pictures and I have to say they are gorgeous. Very lovely and your garden must be enchanting.

BTW...thanks for visiting my blog. I was in the process of updating and I saw your comment. Thank you.

Awww! What a little darling!

Yes, grandchildren in the garden are a very similar experience. I am seriously considering getting rid of the balls I bought for my grandchildren to kick around in the backyard. The balls always land in the flowerbeds, followed by little feet.

Oh, these are so adorable. Don't know if you purposefully gave him the chew toy to keep him occupied and that wet nose off your lens, but it seems to have worked either way!

Yes I know a lab puppy...all that energy and dont know what to do...not a good choice for a gardener like you or me. (I though love them)

Micki-It is one of my son's balls. It was hard to get a shot because whenever I kneeled down, he came running at me.

Aww so cute! Yes, children in the garden are quite similar. It takes a few years for them to 'get' that they are not supposed to walk on the flowers, and then they often forget!

Oh, yeah, dogs in the garden...after a long winter I am discovering in spring just where their new paths are & some of the paths I am not happy with. Great photos of Murray!

Murray is such a beautiful dog and your photos capture his personality so well. You are very clever with that camera :)
