It’s not like I’m trying, but my dog gets into just about every shot I take of the garden. He’s an 8-year old border collie named Benny. Sweet, sweet dog that is not quite as intense as most borders (I chose the most laid back puppy from the litter), but he still wants a farm job just about all the time.
He picks his spots on the garden and runs right to one of them the second we go outside. He never goes into the garden, but he does stick his nose right down to the fence line and from time to time scratches away at some of the soil outside the fence as if he’s trying to get to the worms or moles or whatever.
It probably does nothing, but I do like to take his fur and lay it down on the ground outside the fence of the garden. I like to think it keeps rabbits, chipmunks and burglars from swiping my veggies.
That’ll do dog, that’ll do.
