Veggie Update: The Fence

We reported last week that do to our vigilance there were lettuce casualties. We thought the worst was over, but we came this weekend to discover Dog Dad had forgiven, but not forgotten. He has created barriers to prevent us from entering the back gardens.

Look at that fence. That may look like a small fence, but that Dog Dad is smart. While I might squeeze through this hole without any blockage, jumping over it requires me to jump blindly into the bush. Not something I'm crazy about doing. They are clearly not designed for rabbit or squirrel prevention. Nowhere do you see anti-rabbit fencing, only Sheltie prevention. It is an outrage. Sure, we've killed more plants than all the critters together to date. You know they will do more damage in the end.

Just a note to our friends out in Blogville, our Google Dashboard reader has gone bonkers. From what we've read this is a fairly common bug that has yet to be addressed in Blogger. As of Monday, we could still click on our individual list of Blogs to get to your Blogs to read your articles, but we only get the person who updated lasted posted to our Dashboard. We are doing our best to keep up to date on what is happening in Blogville. Mom may have to look into another reader if this becomes a problem.


  1. You look sad you can't eat the lettuce.

  2. How very unfair that only the dogs were barred from garden entry! How ever will you protect the garden from evil pests (and sheesh, how will you get your share of greens?!)!!

  3. I have an anti-schnauzer fence into the veggie garden too! Mum says my big floofy paws steps onto the little seedlings and squashes em' flat! So - while the veggies are little - I'm not allowed in. Under strict human supervision only. Sigh.

    Our blogger google reader thingy is not working either. Only shows one. Very annoying.

  4. Update guys. After Mom posted this, I found a way to break in this morning. Dog Dad was not pleased. However, no plants were killed this time.

  5. We have a nice netting fence all around our veggies - not to keep us out but to keep those pesky bunnies out

  6. Anti-dog fencing in the garden?!? Oh, they will be sorry when the bunnies and other critters eat all the veggies. Just sayin'. Blogger reader doesn't always work well...it is a shame. We use it but also have everyone n our Bloglovin' reader as well so we never miss a post. You may want to try it.

  7. Now how can you guard the veggies against the critters with that fence in your way???

    We switched to the free version of Feedly and it seems to be working a lot better.

  8. UGH! Anti Sheltie fence huh?
    Not cool pup! Not cool!
    Just read your update, and I see that you were able to break in!
    Glad you didn't kill any plants though BOL!
    Sorry your having issues with blogger!

  9. Oh, dear, good thing we don't count on the google dashboard to read blogs.

    Sounds like Dog Dad has outfoxed you.

  10. I think your Dad should be glad that you are there to keep the other vermin out.

  11. your Dad is super smart! I subscribe to most of the blogs that I follow via email and also Bloglovin'

  12. Tell your dad that veggies are super good for you and that you should at least get a a few...
