So Riggs was confined. She was a caged animal. Can anyone tell me what caged animals do? Anyone? Anyone?
They get bored.
When you get bored you either – become lethargic and depressed…or get creative. Wanna guess which path Riggs took?
Let’s just say 3 shrubs and 2 trees later we realized she had found a way to entertain herself.
-- my wife the gardener and I conversing while walking around the garden
Me: Wasn’t there a shrub here?
Me: Like a 7 foot shrub?
Me: Did you move it?
Wife: not exactly
Riggs romps by happily with a 7 foot branch in her mouth.
…short while later
Me: Who put this chewed up stick in the ground over here?
Wife: that’s a pear tree.
Ok, so that’s. 3 shrubs lets give them a replacement value of $25.00 each.
And two trees (given to us by my mother to plant around the new fence) at $40.00 each.
We plant things on the other side of the fence now.
