How do you protect your plants/garden from them ? The cat will eat eat any grass-esque house plants if he can get to them. The dog will sometimes wander into beds when things are smaller but she's small and understands 'get out of the garden' (though I worry about the day she figures out that peas actually come from a vine rather than a hand). Otherwise they don't pay much attention to plants
Any neighbor pet problems ? there are a number of cats around and at least one sprays on a pair of catmint plants. We did have something largish (by all appearances) belly flop on our tomatoes just as the first ones were beginning to ripen last summer. They survived and produced but they were much less pretty after that. My theory was a dog went after the young bunny who was living under our shed.
Now and then people let their dogs **** on the garden. It makes me extremely angry. When we can afford a fence one will be going up.
When I am outside and someone lets their dog walk in the yard I pointedly say 'Oops, your dog is walking on our yard.' It bothers me that people think it is OK to allow their dogs on other people's property - they personally wouldn't walk all over my garden so why is it OK for their dog to?
I don't have anything against dogs it is with their owners.
