Meet red smooth rescue 'Choxie,' who hails from Chicago Ridge, Illinois. Choxie has a green thumb, er....paw, as he really loves to garden. Excerpt from the Herald News: When his human heads into the back yard to harvest tomatoes and cucumbers, Choxie helps out.
The 2-year-old is particularly good at sniffing out ripe cucumbers.
He nuzzles his way between the foliage, locates the produce, snaps one off the vine and then, well, runs to the other side of the yard and eats it.

Are there any other doxies out there who like to garden? It's a favorite pastime of your Long and Short of it All hosts to help out dad in the garden. We find that there's nothing better than burying our head deep in a bag of fresh organic soil and stealing a big mouthful! Your host Joey will never forget the time he picked off a fresh hot jalapeño pepper!
