I envisioned  the lush blooms eventually resembling something like this:

oh my! i understand your pain, pamela, but all my garden wreckers only have two legs! i look at that beautiful dog and into his eyes...how could you ever be mad at him?? perhaps you could move the soon-to-be-beautiful clematis to another place and buy something more mature that your pup wouldn't harm?
no matter how you look at it, it's still such a shame...sorry about your clematis dream being put on hold!

Are you going to replant??

Oh dear. Sorry you lost your clematis. Must admit your dog's photo put a smile on my face. He looks so happy! :-)

I have a golden retriever too and she does the same kind of wreckage on my lawn. Thanks for the great pictures too!
