Journey to the Center of the Earth

For those who do not understand the love that a Siberian has for digging, I present Kodiak:


By the way, notice how helpful Kiska is?  Waiting until Kodiak has dug the hole for a while before coming over to inspect his work.  Management?  Or perhaps learning from Meeshka on how to get others to dig up the grub worms? And I love her innocent little look up at me like, “I had nothing to do with this.”

    Okay Kodiak, share your secrets. How do you get your humans to let you dig big holes like that? Every time I start a hole, Mom puts poop in it. It’s so frustrating!

    Wooos & a-roos to yous!
    That’s a fabulous hole, great job on the excavating, Kodiak. Very clever of woo to post a look-out while woo dig. Kiska manages to keep quite an innocent front. Good teamwork!

    Woos & a-roos,
    Star & Jack a-roo

    Woo-woo, we love digging dogs. We should all get together and have a hole
    digging contest. That would be pawsome.

    Great Job on that trip to the Center of the Earth. Our question is – How do you know when you are at the Center?
