Dogs in the Garden

– Posted in: Garden Adventures

In honor of the dog show Feb. 14-15 at Madison Square Garden, it’s appropriate to show a few dogs in the garden.  The above photo captures a sweet moment between artist and one of her golden retrievers.

Susan Miller’s yellow lab is on the job 24-7, bringing her things and providing a strong back to lean on when she moves from wheelchair to sofa.

It must have been hot that day, several years ago, in Patrick Anderson’s garden.


At nursery in Berkeley, CA, Benjamin and Jason, two elegant whippets, observe the goings-on. When it’s chilly, owners Hap and Peter bundle them up.


An older dog who roams the rural neighborhood where this San Diego garden is located drops in daily for a pat on the head and a snooze on the sun-warm driveway.


My terrier, Lily, tries to hypnotize me into letting her go outside. She lives to hunt small critters, like lizards. I’m doing a post on her, and the role she plays in my work as a garden writer/author/photojournalist, in the near future.

Spot’s and Rover’s hides are impervious to the cactus that surrounds them. Only in LA? Not quite: nearby Riverside.


And last but not least, at a Denver garden center, a Pot Dog.
