Well, maybe some Marigolds would look pretty around the shed.

Oh, don't even get me started on how much rabbit poop my dogs eat out of the grass

I will also add that my dogs have not tracked down any more rabbits since Jonesie's big kill . . . I can only hope they are gone!

I'm confused on why you dosed the dog with peroxide. Was the intent to make her vomit? I know it works, as I've had to do it before, but it triggered an expensive case of pancrititis. I guess I don't understand why you didn't let the dog enjoy its spoils of war. I mean, some people do feed raw, and it was bunny....

Can I join in? Anyone have any natural hints for gophers? We've had problems with them, and the last few years it's gotten worse. We had one in the yard a couple of weeks ago -- that must not have had it's burrow dug out yet, and Callie found it and was barking up a storm, and we could see her going after it but she didn't catch it. It was more like she was playing with it .

I don't think we have bunnies anywhere in my neighborhood, so I'm safe from those, but I HATE the gophers.

I've heard that setting up a life-sized plastic owl will often keep little critters away. Or a life-sized plastic Sheltie, if you're an owl owner.

Why would you cut back on those wonderful tasty tasty things called bunnies? You could send them here so I could eat them.

PS NO I will not share them with Spitfire

I had never considered the Chives being dangerous, I'll have to watch to make sure none of the animals nibble on my patches! I know they like the decorative grass I have near them, so hopefully it's enough of a distraction. Honey's pretty good not snacking on my herbs and veggies...I know I warn all my friends who grow tomatoes to keep the dogs away from them, the leaves especially are dangerous and I know something about them encouraged my moms dogs to fetch them off the plant for her. (tomatoes = extra yummy tennis balls?)

My friend Brian thinks I'm overreacting when I jump on Honey to stay away whenever tomato slices fall to the floor, but I don't want to take a chance on her developing a taste for them!

I don't feed raw and didn't want Jonesie getting sick in my house. I also wonder if the rabbit killed was possibly ill, as they can usually outrun my dogs.

I just didn't want to take a chance.

I only gave Jonesie the minimum dose of Peroxide to make her vomit, but I appreciate the warning about Pancreaitis.

As a raw feeder, I can't get angry with the boys doing what nature intended. However, I was not pleased with the $30 charge for the Drontal plus when they got a good case of at least tapeworm from eating that darn bunny!

Weighing in on toxic plants--Garlic seems to have as many supporters as detractors. It appears for the most part dogs would have to eat a huge amount of garlic for it to cause harm. Many believe in small amounts it has benefits to dogs as well as us humans.

Tomatoes are a favorite in this house. The fruit isn't poisonous, according to Pet Poison Helpline.
