Blade did that with the peaches. All my pear trees ... standing around as though I am offering him doggie candy.

This is very timely - my mother just sent me 5 very nice fruit trees, not realizing that in order ... in a couple of years I'll people to complain about my dogs taking test bites out of my peaches, too.

Good luck Melinda. Having fruit trees are wonderful. An opossum got most of my figs. Most people don't care for figs but I like that. Mostly though I feed
them to my parrots. Blade seems to like them as well.

Can you put in PVC from the creek to the trees and somehow get the water that
way. We installed all underground PVC all over part of our acreage. It is great.
Hubby found a broken one on the top yesterday when he tried to water those trees so now we need to repair it. But we have spikets sp? that are on each tree
so we have a drip system. We also have an three in one apple tree that is doing very well for this area. Next winter I am getting several olive trees. I love my baring trees.

I've got a friend whose dog bites into every pear ... the unripe ones. He won't eat them off the ground.

Thats a naughty, naughty dog.

Then Blade is very naughty. As he gets any fruit close enough to get. Which includes peaches, apricots and plums. The plums are now large enough that he really can't get them until they are on the ground from a strong wind.

And carbs aren't a good thing, don't need carbs at all and don't even process them all that well.

A healthy, well-balanced human diet should contain 70% carbs, 20% proteins and 10% fats. What should the percentages be for a dog?

I've been asking this question of vets, food reps, etc., for two years, and have yet to get an answer other than "I'll find out for you." That's it. They never find out for me. :}
(Note: Those 70% carbs should be in the form of vegetables and whole-grain products.)

I bet you sibes could learn to CLIMB TREES with their athletic prowess.You may get no peaches at all.

Whoever said that dogs can't plan hasn't met my evil, scheming huskies. They'd plot among themselves to build a Sibe pyramid so that Image could scramble to the top and pick the fruit for the rest of them.

You did want a "team" of dogs, did you not? Thats a pretty team like activity - the dog-pyramid.

Blade has always been a naughty, naughty dog! HE loves naughty! Eating them is fine. Biting and leaving them is NAUGHTY!!

Ah, you are so correct. He is very much a "Rebel without cause" and naughty.
He has on very rare occassions left them after biting. Also nearly broken some limbs.
He devoured most or our apricots.
