Alison who comments on my blog and is my Lyme friend from Edmondton Canada suggested once that I should post a picture of Beth as my Garden helper. Hmm! Here Beth is with a mouthful of peas.
Back again for more.

and here again with another mouthful.
There is little we can do to get her out once she has started eating the peas and although she looks so sweet, like some other Springer Spaniels she can certainly bare her teeth if you try and make her do something she doesn't want to do.
By the time she had finished Mike decided his re- named Reluctant peas were really not worth struggling with any more and by the time I got back from chasing Orchids he had removed what was left of the peas.
We have gates in the garden and for the last day or so we had kept Beth out of the vegetable area but Mike being the softy he is where Beth is concerned did not like to shut her out from where he was working.
Beth also eats Broad beans, Runner Beans, French Beans, Strawberries and Raspberries, although I do mange to protect the Strawberries from Beth and the birds and the other plants I try to pick daily before Beth gets the crop. She sometimes stands next to me and has been known to snatch a bean from my hand.
Now I know all you dog lovers will be amused and think what a dear sweet dog but today I can't agree.
