The 1.5 Pound Gardener

1.5 pound rough and tough
Gardeningk Pup,
Put some dirt down,
She’ll dig it right up


Got an empty pot?
She’ll drag it over here
Waving her ‘tocks,
Tail, and pinktastic ears

C'mon back

Allison P., I think you have a good show title for a TLC series.

    that dog is showing that bucket good.

  2. Perhaps if I had a helper like this pup, I would actually accomplish some gardening…

  3. Francesca says:

    OMG! That little creature is beyond cute! Is she some type of terrier? I wonder what breed?

  4. Awwwww. She is so cute. I love the potting soil in her hair. She is all this Planter is ready for the plants in the first picture and here you go Mom here is a new pot for that plant you just dug up in the second photo.
    So tiny and Adorable.

  5. Francesca is so right! We love cute overload! xoxox

  6. THAT is one adorables puppers! ME WANT!!!!!!

  7. AuntieMame says:

    And she looks so proud of herself! “Lookit what I did, mommy!”

  8. lucky puppy, gets to play in the dirt and still looks cute

  9. I WANT!!!!!

    She is so cute!

    AuntieMame is right, teh pup’s all “Is this right mommy? I did good!”

  10. somebody needs a bath! so freaking cute.

  11. lurkingsmirk says:

    Haha love the pose in the first pic…like “Another job well done!”

  12. *kathud!* Gahhh the cuteness is in my bloodstream…I feel faint….*gasp*

  13. I know I have said this, like, a bajillion times – but I have never seen anything so freakin’ cute in mah whole life!

  14. awwwww, so so cute!! She wants to help plant and replant.

  15. luvinmalssomuch says:

    Hannabear you took the words right out of my mouth.
    Can I borrow the cute pup for oh maybe just a day. Wonder if she picks weeds also.

  16. A cutie like that makes dirt look like chocolate! 🙂 I love the proud bebe bosom all prided up! Go jiggle pup!

  17. Jaypo beat me to it…. “Mom. look!! I’m helping! See??” *BEEG puppy smile*

  18. I’m totally not a dog person. I especially avoid little toy terriers. (No, no, a thousand times NO.) (…no.) But this right here is one FANTASTIC post. Look how proud that pup is! And I like how the only un-blurry thing in the second pic is the planter itself, like Mister Topsoil Muzzle is spinning the whole world around it.

  19. She’s a LOLpup:


  20. who asked what kind of pup this is?
    i think its a westhighland white terrier. what an attitude! she knows she did something REALLY smart!

  21. I would like a puppy like that to help in my gardening. TOO cute.

  22. She’s hired. My yard is a total mess right now. Does she mow lawns too? I’ll let her drive the tractor.

  23. awwwwwwwwwwwww. sweet maltese! just like mine, always want to help 🙂

  24. Pinktastic ears and dirtastic nose, YEA!

  25. boanderey says:

    “Thats what u wanted, right mom? You wanted allll the dirt out.” My Charlie “helped” like that, digging the hole out for me! And then he’d dig up and take care of the plants I’d foolishly left behind in teh holes. Of course he was a terrier.

  26. Suzanne says:

    The ears are too long for a Westie…the tail isn’t quite right either…but she IS adorable.

  27. is it a maltese or a westie?
    Sender-Inner Alison P. can you enlighten us???

  28. Want that puppy!!!

  29. HeidStar says:

    GardenPup™. Funny, I haven’t seen these in stock at local gardening stores.

  30. Christine H says:

    Teeny fluffy puppy! AWWW!

  31. My vote is on maltese.

  32. DejaMew says:

    She’s obviously a West Highland Dirt Terrier. (gigglesnort)

  33. pat_the_bunny says:

    How adora-pupple!!!

  34. I think she looks most like a maltese, which is good news for Theo, since that means she’s not a terrier. You can get yerself one of dese babehs! They’re actually in the spaniel family, aren’t they? Anybody know?

  35. Such a dainty little thing, but she’s not afraid of hard work. How admirable!

  36. Clearly she is planting dogwoods. (And I think it´s a Maltese. Westies are more into interrier design.)

  37. Shannon Johnson says:

    Cuteness Alert! She is the cutest pup ever, ok maybe the second cutest pup ever.

  38. I think I just got diabetes from the sweetness of this little pup. SO CUTE.

  39. [can’t decide whether to give Dale a gold star or a smack upside ya head]

    Another one bites the pun.

  40. Bella's mom says:

    OMG, this looks just like our Bella last summer! Now she’s bigger and can dig up a lot more, haha!

  46. Beauregard says:

    Someone revive me because that it the cutest puppy EVER on CO. I’m not exaggerating!

  47. Thanks, Theo, either way. [ducks. sparkles]

    If someone gets that dog some gardening tools we could start a category of bitches and hoes.

  48. Ohhh……i want a maltese so badly >_< cute pics =D

  49. Dale You are on a roll today.

  50. R. Moore says:

    Archives? Are the archives new?

  51. useta hada kitteh says:

    R. Moore — by definition, how can archives be *new*?? (just had to ask that). But yeah, I don’t remember ever seeing all that long list of dates (I’ve never seen a long list of dates before in my whole entire life, but that’s just cuz I need to get a life.) 😉

    As for Puppy McGardensons, he is teh funny. and cute. no matter what kinda puppers he is. or she.

  52. Awwwwww! Love the pic of the pup dragging the bucket!


    I wants a cat AND a dog right now.

  53. Allison P says:

    It’s my puppy!! I’m so excited that this made it up. This is Miss Peepers, who is actually none of the breeds that have been mentioned so far – she’s a Havanese, eleven weeks old! I am SO glad you’re all enjoying her as much as we are!!

  54. What a good helper! Havenese are smart little pups!

  55. if i was a gardner,
    i’d garden in the morning, i’d garden in the evening, all over this town….

  56. Oh wow. Been there, done that. It’s always cute when another person’s dog does that!

  57. Dale — Dale, Dale, Dale… (LOL) …OK, I expect a pun forthwith using “Havanese”.

    R. Moore — newly redesigned, anyway. Week-at-a-time.

    Useta — I love how you recognize the daily absurdities of life. Are you a Jon Stewart fan? 😉

  58. [stretches. rises to the occasion]

    Havanese day, Theo!

  59. wow, you’re good.

  60. Made me LOL cause my 4 month, 75lb Newfy puppy has just spent the day doing the exact same thing! Bet my garden’s muddier!

  61. Mary peeps cousin says:

    oh peep you are soooooo cute! i love you peepers!

  62. ~All~ pups are terriers when they find some fresh clean dirt to dig in…
    My Lowchen (second cousin to the Havanese) dug holes big enough to trap unwary children when he was a pup…the look on the kids’ faces was pretty funny…

  63. Teresa :o) says:

    What a cute little helper!!!! 🙂

  64. furbabies says:

    Gardeningk Pup, are you going to be opening an office in the Charlotte area? If so, you are hired. Muddy puppy = insanely cute.


  66. I suspect the doggie is a mix, maybe westie and Tibetan somethingorother. A purebred westie wouldn’t have a curled tail.
