    This reminds me of the time Gracie decided to dig up my winter crop
    Moving back to Brisbane after 3 years in Melbourne, all I wanted was a backyard with vegetable patch and a dog

    Silly of me to think that they could co-exist unfenced right?!



    This is her 'Veggie patch? What veggie patch?' face

    I look at your pup and it just so makes me smile. It's the wicked eyes. I confess to a sense of kinship when you describe her, she is the same mix as my Maggie. I especially relate to Gracie being a sensitive little flower and also a wicked evil hound.They are bright as a button yet 'interesting' to train.
    I am about to retrieve my pots from the front yard now she is a heap less destructive at 18months old.
    You are not alone..lol

    Maggie is beautiful! Outstanding ears. Gracie has a limp ear, 95% of the time her ears point to 3 o'clock

    It's quite incredible how they can make you burst with love and happiness but drive you insane all the same
    A brave choice of breed for my first dog but I had my heart set on a border collie for at least a decade
    I bet you've got some stories!

    are raised beds or troughs an option? I have found them to work reasonably well, I suspect it is because the dogs have a clear differentiation between plant area and zoomie area. I don't have much to suggest for plant types (I suspect those suitable for Canberra might not be ideal for Bundaberg), there was one flowering thing that I wish I could recall the name of - one of my girls bought it for me in Darwin as a mothers day present, it was ripped out of the ground and paraded around the garden multiple times by a staffie, then heeled in and would keep on growing - obviously the ideal plant for a garden with dogs.

    LOL ... i raised the garden area by about a foot and lined it all with decent sized rocks .... forgot about my decent sized dogs .... who totally ignored the so called 'barrier' i built.

    Lack of rain this non existent wet season has resulted in slow growth but i've fought back with my hose..... as my rates notice shows !!! Waters the price of bloody gold these days !!

    Most plants have done rather well considering but the purple cordalines at the back copped a hiding from the goofs.... 3 snapped of at ground level... and a bird of paradise copped a hiding aswell... but coming back strong now. Touchwood.

    Nothing to bost of right now really but another 6 months and it should look pretty good.
