Need some advice from any clever "doggy" people out there. Our dog has got fed up eating the chickens.......on account that they are in a more secure area mainly.....but now wants to eat or dig up anything in the garden. Marymo had 2 lovely crowns of rhubarb just planted and doing well. She.....Niamh the dog, not Marymo... dug one up and destroyed it....I tried telling Marymo...."but she has left us one"...that cut not a lot of ice. She dragged a new water pump out of a pond and chewed the wires.....it was 3 days old. She has tumbled pots of plants over....again tonight some rhubarb seed that were growing are no longer growing. She is 6 months and has only started this digging in the last couple of weeks. Can anything be done...?.......we never wanted a dog on a chain.....and still don,t.....we have a pen for her but don,t even want her locked in there all the time....lock her now if we go out. Is this " a pup" thing she,ll grow out of. Tonight Marymo is not too pleased....says I shot a cat for less.
All help....as quickly as possible before Marymo gets the gun out.... much appreciated.
