Diving into a Task

I was just minding my own business when I heard some movement in the ground, so I had to take a close look.

I got all the way in to my ears. Can you tell?

Maybe if I close my eyes, the hu-dad will stop with the flashy beast.

    There is no point in doing something if you don’t pt yourself fully into it, right, your highness?

    Looks like you’ve been busy!
    Soo did you find anything?

    Sorry Natasha, they never stop with the flashy beast.

    Good luck, Natasha, but may they NEVER stop with the flashy beast! As long as the pack is doing something cute…and they’re ALWAYS doing something cute…it’s a hu-dad and hu-mom’s job to get it all recorded and shared!

    I think its admirable that you go after what you want 😉

    Did you get in far enough to see China?

    Ciara is so proud of you, Natasha. It’s great to see royalty get down and dirty:)

    Um, Natasha, that’s not your most regal pose… I have a feeling the Hu-Dad is going to be on someone’s list!

    haha…you’re so silly! You look cute with mud. 🙂

    Hey, you better watch out or something will bite you on the nose. That actually happened to R once – but it hasn’t dampened his enthusiasm for digging up rodents!

    PS I’ve heard that closing your eyes makes you even cuter for a photo. Bad strategy!

  14. Zona on September 19, 2010 at 9:23 am

    Yes! Tell us tell us!! What did you find?


  15. DogsMom on September 19, 2010 at 9:04 am

    Was it scary? Was it tasty? Was it silly? We want to know!

  16. Minnie and Mack on September 19, 2010 at 7:35 am

    What’d you find? Somethin’ good?

    Drools and licks,
