Our big dog Jack respects boundaries and borders. It takes just a string or bit of surveyors tape or any type of little marker, and he'll stay away from whatever we're declaring off-limits.
Our small vegetable garden, for instance, where we grow our tomatoes. Though he loves our cherry tomatoes, he hasn't touched them.
Then a volunteer plant from last year established itself OUTSIDE the marker. Jack has promptly declared that particular plant his own personal supply of cherry tomatoes, eating each one as it ripens and still leaving the others alone.
Trouble is, we tasted those cherry tomatoes this morning; they're better than OUR tomatoes INSIDE the fence!!

R.A.T. (Rose About Town) is wondering: If we were to sneak a few of his cherry tomatoes, do you suppose Jack would establish his own marker around his tomato plant?(Direct your own comments and stories to randrmoore@gmail.com).
