blinking flip!!!

Post  bobby little on Tue Nov 24, 2009 11:13 pm

I had a nice little chinese juniper which I wanted to bulk up a bit. It was partially styled with loads of potential, shohin sized. I wanted to plant it in my garden, but as some of you may be aware I am owner of a cerebrally challenged dog who used to have a habit of howking my trees out of the ground and charging about with them in her cavernous gob. My elderly green fingered neighbour came to my aid and said I could plant it in her garden. It's been there a year or so, thickening up sweetley and doing really well. I've been very attentive. Then she dropped a heavy weight on it and snapped it in half. Evil or Very Mad Shocked Sad I was going to dig it up and pop it into my own garden this weekedn as the dog has started behaving herself. Bugger.

Pets, children and bonsai. Not compatable in my opinion! I've had lovely craggy old Pine and Hawthorn bark, stripped from three trees by my cats. Branches snapped by footballs, cricket bats and light saber's etc....etc...

Bobby, is this the dog with only three legs? I'd love to see the digging operation if it is.

Wilst playing with little trees, it is best to also play with little dogs!

They may still want to tussle with the trees, but it is easier to put them out of reach.


"What did he say!"



Certainly the last dog we had wasn't the best choice for little trees, or small humans! (Great Dane\Rotweiller cross). LOL!

Na, they'd chew themselves free in no time flat.

When it comes to chew toys (occasionally each other), they are like little Tazmanian Devils!

I wouldn't want either one of them sitting anywhere near my trees. Unless I could train them to jin\shari and stop when appropriate. (Yanno, we have cat emoticons cat , pig emoticons pig , raindeer emoticons rendeer ; but no dog emoticons. HMMMM!)

Or they could be a new bonsai form called Yapadori?
