Gardening: The Art of 'Bone-sai'

Just like the well researched gardening 'Bonsai' technique, we canines have also mastered the fine art of shaping trees, plants, flowers, shrubs into PULP. ;) Proudly, we canines of Dog Woods refer to the artful gardening technique as 'BONE-sai'!

The difference between the Human Bonsai process and the Canine BONE-sai technique however, lies in the TIME frame. Unlike the 'Bonsai' process that takes WaaaayyyToo LOooNGGgg - usually months and years to mould and shape tree or plant into desired shape (a Dog has only so much to time to LIVE!), our 'BONE-sai' technique yields almost instant results .... so long as our Creative CHEWING-ing process is NOT rudely interrupted by some unappreciative yelping Human - like the Big Chief...:p

First, choose branch/sapling/plant of choice. Affix one's Canine Pearly Whites on branch, TUG! If unable to uproot plant/shrub/sapling or tear branch from main tree, use paws and hunky body to hold down the GREEN of choice.

With Green in place, CHEW to Puppy Heart's Content!


... until Yelping Human comes along (usually hopping mad) and abruptly ends BONE-sai session ...:p

  3. Wow your bone-sai technique is very good! We can learns a few things from yoos! XxXx

  4. Great bone-sai-ing there. Just be careful to work on pet-safe plants. We will try to hone our skills when the spring brings things back to life.

  5. Great idea and wonderful technique. Does that work on any type of tree, shrub or plant?

  6. Bark bark! I love to bark and chew bark at the same time. I'll have to try it on a plant now that I've seen you do it.

  7. I am always excited for more short-legged friends! And thanks for the gardening advice.
