Alphie in the Cucumber Patch

by Bessie Favell
(Canada)




My unforgettable schnauzer, Alphie, went over the Rainbow Bridge some time ago. I'm too old to take care of another one now.
In Alphie's memory I wrote a true published children's book titled "Alphie in the Cucumber Patch" Also have a video of the same title on YouTube.

yes you guessed it he loved cucumbers. I never did get any pickles made.

The family didn't mind as we had a lot of fun chasing him out of the patch with a cucumber stuck in his mouth.

He will always be in our hearts.

Hello Gerald.

That is hilarious! You'll just have to write your own true story. I'm sure you could get it published.

Copies of my book are now in the Ottawa Archives thanks to my publisher Bobbie Van-stone.

Thank you Derek.

I don't like the video I made, I'm not relaxed. Hope to entice a niece or nephew to another for me some day

He was adorable. When my late husband took I'll Alphieeureka guarded over him night and day. Slept on the bed with him.

Gretchen in the cucumber patch
by: Gerald Stevens

We too had a cucumber lover only she was a German Shepard named Gretchen. She would go into the garden and pick the largest cucumbers and bring them to the front yard, plunk herself down, placing the cucumber between her front paws and with her lower teeth dig out the flesh and seeds leaving a yard full of cucumber canoes left for us to clean up.
We now cater to the smaller German breed, Mini-Schnauzer Danka and Shayna. Love them both.
