    Any chemicals in the bark? I wonder if eating it is doing her tummy in.

    Any posts made under the name of Di_dee1 one can be used by anyone as I do not give a rats.

    some of the barks are treated and "chocolate" barks can be quite dangerous. We removed all the bark so the dogs couldn't get to it

    Nah, she doesn't eat it! She lies on it when I've watred it, as then it's nice and cool on her body. But it then sticks to her coat like super glue - that's the problem.

    Need to make another cool bark free place for her to lie on before you water - wet towel on the deck?. Or water using drippers so it's not everywhere.

    Frosty - roll in red brick dust on bas e bal l diamond, become red heeler, shake most of it off before returning but sometimes, plenty left for the floor.

    Liquid Amber, now there's a wonderful tree if you have a long coated dog - NOT.

    That and the weed Farmers Friend, with the little peg like seeds that stick, knot and stay in the coat.

    I pulled them out along the back of the property, piled them high with the intension of burning them off and turned around to find my lovely, delightful, girl using them as a soft bed - grrrr.

    Aw heck, PMSL at MAC. That would not impress me! Bet she enjoyed doing it too.

    Tried a wet towel when she was ill, Hy. Nope. No go. Garden's better, she reckons.

    I plan to rock the barked gardens. There are a couple up the back rocked, and of course if she lies in them it's not a problem at all.

    I reckon plane (plain?) tree seeds would be worse.

    My brother has had to go round his new (old) garden pulling out all the forgetmenots, because the seeds of those stick to a staffy! Not to mention his kids.
