Meet Daisy, my friendly Buff Orpington "Garden Pal." All I have to do is break off the limb with the hornworm attached and the "Garden Pal" does it all. There's no need for stooping and bending as the "Garden Pal" leaps high into the air, and
in a split second the job is done. See how fast! The camera couldn't capture this without the blur.
Today my "Garden Pal" had a real workout as we exterminated about a dozen hornworms.
The title of this post is, "Daisy the Hornworm Slayer" and it reminded me of "Buffy the Vampire Slayer." I guess Buffy would be a good name for Daisy since she is a buff colored Buff Orpington, but maybe not a fitting name for my black Lab. Regardless, that is her name anyway.
I call this picture "Buffy the Tomato Slayer." She got bored watching the "Garden Pal" work so she decided to find a green tomato to eat and pass the time away.
