Default Bloody dogs digging out bulbs

Howdy,

A local dog has been digging out the front garden bulbs
every day.

I reckon it's the blood and bone, which has been fairly
well dug through the soil... I wouldn't have expected it
to attract them *shrug*

Anyway, is there something to keep them at bay ?
I'm tired of having to replant a few bulbs each
morning - luckily they haven't taken root or anything yet.

cheers,
-kt

get a cat.
This will distract the dog away from the bulbs.

Ring the Council and complain about the roaming dog? Or maybe firmly attach
chicken wire over the area maybe that would deter it

*If* you can stand guard a few times, having your garden hose primed and ready
is probably the best solution (ie. after the one about ringing the council and
complaining...) Blast the dog full in the face with the hose and keep blasting
until it goes away. Do this a few times in succession and it ought to work.

We sprinkled heaps of cheap white pepper on the garden
bed - so far so good, it's been right for 2 days now.
