I think I'm smarter than a dog so I set out trying to prove just that. Bonnie acted uninterested in the entire process. I know at one point she found an almost empty water garden and had a funny look on her face like, "Gee, where did my water go?"
My solution was remove the lilies since I like having pet friendly gardens. Here is where my warped problem solving brain took me.
This was not an easy task but it was enjoyable. An old bathtub now holds my lilies. The water over flows and recirculates. After cleaning the pond, making more friendly pet access, and moving lots of rocks I have the solution...until Bonnie shows up to see what I'm doing. As the pond fills she finds a drink...that's right! In the new Lily Reserve.
She likes the tub too!
I'm proud of my hard work and the fact I used something we had. Recycling to the Nth degree.
New pond is filling.
Bonnie decides it sits well with no lily interference.
Just relaxing after all my hard work.
With a shake of approval
Bonnie exits up her steps.
