This is a journal of my vegetable gardens. Skippy was my first dog and he thought the garden was his, even though I did all the work. Now Suzie and Charley follow in his footsteps. We're located near Boston (USDA zone 6A). I have a community plot, a backyard vegetable garden, fruit trees, berry bushes, chickens, and bees. I use sustainable organic methods and do my best to grow all of my family's vegetables myself.

Suzie is home

Suzie is home! She sure is cute!

She's a 7 weeks old Portuguese water dog, all black just like Skippy. Very soft and fluffy. She has needle sharp baby teeth, but is learning fast how hard she can bite. She's a quick learner. She learned how to climb out of her baby pen in only a few hours. She learned to steal my shoes. And she's learned how much she likes garden lettuce, roasted squash, and potatoes.

Skippy and Suzie are getting along great - as long as Skippy has an escape route. She is pretty fresh. And I am amazed at how polite Skippy is. He seems to really love being with her and running along the meadow paths.

I have to admit though that I'm exhausted. Suzie has to brought out to pee every 2-3 hours at night. I can't wait til her bladder gets bigger!

It's always exciting to add a puppy mixed with a little "what was I thinking!" Good luck with your new friend!
