Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

Yesterday, while wandering around the property and checking things out, I stopped at a wild black raspberry bush. And snacked a bit (makes it very difficult to weed these out of the borders Laughing ) Ami looked up with his "what about me look" so I gave him one.

Bad move...now when we go by the wild ones and the planted 'Fall Gold', he very carefully sniffs the bush, identifies the perfectly ripe berries and very gently, NIBBLES the berry off the bush and eats it. We thought once youngest son left the house, we may actually get a bowl of yellow raspberries. Now we have another berry thief Wink

LOLOL! Smile How funny that Ami picked up on that so quickly.

I was just in Michigan doing field work and was able to enjoy some wild black raspberries myself. So yummy!

I have a blackberry grove in the backyard I'm glad the dogs don't like. Growing up we had large grape vines that we had to fight the dogs and my horse for.

Way smart - this morning on our walk, he spied a honeysuckle full of red berries - very delicately, he sniffed them, one at a time - after 6 or 7 berries were investigated, he gave up, didn't eat a one and continued on. That boy never ceases to entertain me Laughing

How to do you know which ones to eat? I always see berries and such and I never know if I should take the risk and eat them or not?

My old dog used to do that with our tomato plants in the backyard....it irritated my dad so much because he loves fresh veggies, and my airdale kept sneaking out and picking all the ripe ones...

I know what raspberries, blackberries, strawberries and blueberries look like (and their foliage) just from growing up around them and I don't know of any non-edible look-a-likes. The honeysuckle has a round, smooth, very pretty red berry as does false nightshade - those I know NOT to eat and I recognize because I planted the honeysuckle and the false nightshade I researched - it was growing wild in my rhododendrons, is a vine with a very beautiful but tiny purple flower and deep yellow center. Then the berries come out and it is the most glorious shade of deep red...I use the Audubon Society field guides to help with identifying things (including the mushroom one but I'm not brave enough to eat a wild mushroom affraid )

Sierra loves when i go into the veggie garden, when i had broccoli last yr she knew she got the tops from it and would wait for me to pick it for her, i have a small fence up but they can get in but she never would.

Ami needs to be more sneaky!

Hmmm...Ami is supposed to be the solution, not an added piece to the problem  Oh well, I like Ami more than the bunnies and the deer Razz
