A River Digs Through It

This blog post is pretty much just for me. My dog River, a 5 year old Toy Fox Terrier (named after River Tam in Firefly/Serenity), is a constant garden companion. Half the reason I have the garden fence is to give her a place to roam and play without escaping into the wild.  Being a terrier, she loves two things:  digging and rodents.  Fortunately, there are plenty of both out there.  She caught a mouse just last week that was hiding the leaf mulch (poor little guy).  I do have to be careful when planting because she will dig stuff up if the soil is fresh (fresh soil = mice in her mind).  So I have been trying a technique of planting with just a little digging and letting her finish the hole up.  Later, I put the plants in when she’s not present.
