I found a way to watch my wife and keep her from wandering away and still do the gardening. And the Rottweilers seem to enjoy helping out, too. I put a chair on the front patio, hooked Ruff to a leash and got Jackie to sit outside and hold on to him. This lets me keep an eye on her while I'm working. Her Alzheimer's is getting her in trouble when she is left alone and this new trick seems to work out fine for everyone. And the two boys sure looked proud being on guard.
And little Sassy took up her forward guard position just in case.
