What is happening at your house now the gardening is almost over?
I am bored and the posts are getting less and less. I will start off. My puppy is bored now he can't work in the garden stealing plant tags, stealing tomatoes from the greenhouse, eating from the garden and yuk the compost pile, stealing packages of bulbs, running off with a lily bulb, digging in the mulch,pouncing on the hose, sitting under the sprinkler and dragging on my pants legs. (No this isn't a lab puppy. He is a little fluffy pekingnese who thinks he's a lab). He has torn up all of the plants in the bay window and dumped over my new amarylis. He has taken to stealing from the garbage so his puppy school instructor said start squirting him with a spray bottle. Oh he loved that one. He sat down and enjoyed himself licking the water as it ran down his head. Just another game. Ok that didn't work. Next came the extra hot hot sauce. He loved that too. Drug out the paper towel, shook his head a few times and began to eat it. Back to school we go and she suggest mouse traps. Sounds mean so it took a week and much scattered papers to finally get the courage to set the traps. Day one he springs the trap and yelps. Day two he starts springing the traps and running when they snap. Day three he sets off the traps and brings one to me while I am watching TV. He looked at me if to say, "You fool." A week later he leaves the garbage alone only if the traps are set in a fashion he can't spring. I have been snapped more times than Afus while setting those darn things. Even the instructor had to laugh. Any suggestions on smart puppies garbage and plants? Now help end my boredom and post your recent humour or just what are you doing.
