This is Skye. I call her Corndog because in past years she’s always gone straight for the corn, I think because she knows how attractive she looks sitting in the dappled shade. She comes by every now and then to scare off rabbits (which actually come to think of it, she isn’t very good at) and race around the grass paths. Corndog wasn’t really interested in the corn this year, so we’ll have to rechristen her “Strawdog” –Xan
Here at Chiot’s Run, the gardens are named after our resident dog Lucy (Chiot is puppy in french). We picked Lucy up at the dog pound the month after we purchased this house. She loves being outside and spends most of her days lounging in the shade in the front yard.
We also have two garden cats. The black one, is the kitten of a feral cat that showed up 2 years ago, she lives in the garage and spends all of her time outside. Dexter, the resident fat cat, showed up on our doorstep a few years ago and used to be an indoor cat. He is happier when he can spend his days outside, so how he’s an indoor/outdoor cat. Spending most nights in the house and his days out in the gardens.
It really is great to have pets in the garden, they are such great companions. They also do their part helps keep some pests away.
Do you have any garden companions?
