I caught them!!!
I caught those dogs red pawed tonight. The great dane was wallowing on his back rolling back and forth and doing the back snake dance in one bed while the malemute was standing all four paws in the adjoining bed egging him on.
I had peas, carrots,lettuce, spinach, radish and other things already planted there. Now, goodness knows wherever those things are. I found some of the peas, and a half of a broccoli and spinach seedling, but that's it. Looks like we'll be playing "weed or seed?" when the weather warms up.
