I had Joker out with me while I was playing with the flowers this morning. I am trying to teach the dogs that the garden is my territory. They have the entire rest of the backyard! I don’t think that it is too much to ask for them to stay out of my flowers. The rose bushes are already off limits, but I think that has more to do with thorns than training. Joke went up on the back porch as he was expecting me to sit down in my thinking chair. I had a macro lens on the camera but took this anyway – he knows exactly how cute he is. I told him to smile and here is the result.
