As some of you may know already, we inadvertently acquired a puppy on Sunday – came back from pottering around the local garden centers and nurseries to find him in the back yard. We are trying to find a place for him as we can’t keep him as I am horribly allergic to dogs.
It turns out that puppies and native gardens are a sub-optimal mix, so while he may look all very cute he has been eating my plants (he is particularly fond of black-eyed daisies, which are very glabrous and itchy, so I don’t quite get the attraction). Dude, you are a carnivore, eat your puppy chow and leave my bloody plants alone.
I’m graciously not going to mention all the squashed-grass puppy nests he is leaving – its like mountain gorilla sign.
If anyone in the Lubbock area is looking to control their black-eyed daisy population and would like to give Wallace here a home, do get in touch.
