Pets and gardening go hand in hand

Iams Naturals

I’ve often wondered how many gardeners own pets? It just seems that a love of nature and a love of pets goes hand in hand. Of course … pets can be pests in the garden if you’re not careful! We’re lucky in this regard – our Labrador Retriever, Midnight, has always been fairly good in our garden. She loves the backyard and ever since she was a puppy we taught her to respect the garden beds. She doesn’t go into them at all! Now that’s a good dog.

Naturally our good dog is well rewarded for her behavior in the garden and in our home. She’s a good girl and she’s well loved. As I said she’s well behaved in our garden and fairly well behaved in the house too. I suppose we treat her like one of the family with all the love and attention she gets.

So – fellow gardeners – Do you have a pet dog or cat? Do you pamper it with love, attention and good food?

    I have a small dog. He likes chewing on a particular plant. I used to think he was the biggest pest, however I realized that he only chewed on one specific plant. So I let him have that one, he doesn’t chew too much so its always there for him. At this point I’ve stopped caring, and I guess his reward for staying away from my other plants is chewing on that single plant.

    It took me ages to train my little spike not to dig in the garden.
