That makes me smile. I can just picture her.

I do have a dog that does the same thing, but he is not out all the time, so the quails still have opportunities to pillage! We did clear out some shrubs last year and that has seemed to help. They don't have as many easy places to hide now.

oh no my border is not out all the time either because of the tremendous heat and beside the fact that dogs want to be with their pack and I and the other lil dogs are her pack and she is very protective of me . In fact the other day the neighbor came over and she hit the window and the neighbor jumped and I swear if I did not know better she was snickering because she scared someone .Do you remember the cartoon with the old lady on the cane and the hound dog that used to protect her ? that is how I feel sometimes . anyways take a look at my photos of the mortgage lifter and german pink now german pink I don't think I will grow again but the mortgage lifter oh my yes .

Beautiful update Nickman! Your plants are amazing! Your front yard with all the flowers is just gorgeous! Love love love!!
You have a green thumb for sure!!

I have something eating the tops off of some of my green pepper and tomato plants and I suspect it is a deer. Found deer poop in the garden. Argh...although I do love the critters, I just don't want them mowing down my veggie plants. LOLOL
