Buster's New Years Resolutions

Buster the dog, the co-writer of "Dig It! Gardening Tips for Dogs", has thought long and hard about what his New Years Resolutions for 2015 will be. He considers last year was a fantastic yer, with his book being reprinted, and the first time for copies of the book to be sold overseas!

With that in mind, what could he do to help the year 2015 be bigger and better? Read on, and you will find out!

Buster's Resolutions:

I won't prune things that are in those funny little ceramic pots

I will not prune any little trees with wire on them

I will only dig in the dog run, not in the backyard

There, happy now Carolyn?


Yes Buster, I am happy with those resolutions. I would have been happier if you'd told them to me to type up for you without a snarl in your voice, and your upper lip curled up in that somewhat aggressive way! He's a bad dog sometimes, it's a good thing I love him!

So Those are Buster's New Years Resolutions. My resolutions that are relevant for this blog are these:

Carolyn's Resolutions:

I will toss things to Buster that he's allowed to 'prune' that is chew up and/or eat - carrots, mushrooms etc

I will place the bonsai trees out of Buster's reach, or at least limit his access to them, and so not tempt him to do naughty things

I will give Buster plenty of access to the dog run, where he will continue to be allowed to dig as much as he wants, and will only interfere if he digs along the outer fence line, or the pool fence

And another one - I will continue to promote this funny little book, and sell or at least place as many books as I can in the hands of people who will appreciate the humour and the cute illustrations!


There that's the resolutions done, let the fun for the year 2015 begin!

  1. Well, Buster's been sticking to his New Years resolutions, more or less. A couple of sessions of digging in ghe back yard, but not too much harm was done.
    And we've kept all dogs out of the bonsai area, so the 'little trees' are safe from dogs. We could have had a disaster though - wind blew down a large branch, which feel down where the bonsai trees had been only a couple of weeks earlier. Graham had moved them a few metres away, into the shade, and out of danger from that branch ...

    Some things have unexpected results, and on this occasion, a very good result!


Any thoughts on this? Let us know!
