Zip In The Garden

I’m seeing that whenever I’m working in the gardens, as long as Jon isn’t around,  Zip shows up.  He loves the stone walls where the mice, chipmunks and snakes live.

I wish I could tell Zip which animals he’s allowed to hunt and which ones I’d rather he didn’t.  But it doesn’t work that way.

Anyway, it seems to me that whenever humans try to “fix” the natural world, they usually end up making things worse.

  1. My first Welsh Terrier was mellow with people but a ferocious hunter like Bud and Zip. I told his vet that he got mad at me for fishing a dead mouse out of his toy box. Said the vet: “Get your own damn mouse! Those things are had to catch.”
