I asked readers to share pictures of their own animal gardening buddies, and I was touched that so many of you did! Thank you for the heartwarming pictures and condolences. Here are the pictures of succ-er pets that readers sent in:
I know there are a lot of pets out there that need good homes, like Scout did almost a decade ago, and maybe eventually I'll be able to give another dog or two a good home. For now, I suspect I'd just be wandering after the new pet despondently, wondering why it isn't in magic psychic connection with me like Scout was. I'll keep you posted.
Thanks again to all of the succ-ers who sent in pictures of their furry gardening companions. It helps so much to see all those wonderful pets enjoying lives alongside their wonderful people!
