Digging Supervisors

As anyone who has ever had to do the real work knows, there is always the digging supervisor who critiques your technique.


Hey! You aren’t using the right technique.


Everyone! Everyone! Come look at this!

talk a lot

Yes, yes, as a typical supervisor, I can talk a lot.

back off

Back off, supervisor, I know what I am to do.

don't back talk me.

Hey, don’t back talk me!


There is always a critic for every task.

    Now that Cheoah has the hole partly dug, looks like Tartok is just waiting for his turn, and by the look of it, running out of patience! Obviously, Cheoah is NOT doing it to his satisfaction.

    they will mix, and make friends, but after a Siberian, everything else is just a dog.

    Two Siberians is a wondrous mix.
    Six is better.
    32 in a ball field is SO much fun!

      so Donna in WV, how do you think an Aussie and a Sibe would mix? Maggie has been attacked by 2 seperate Sibes..both female, both edgy. I don’t know if it’s the “Aussie stare” that sets them off, or if it’s just QMSB vibes! Both being high energy dogs are great, my concern is how will a sibe take being herded 🙂

    I know how to pronounce Cheesewhiz, but how do you pronounce Cheoah?

      CHE-o-ah – It is the Cherokee word for Otter.

    I’ve been thinking about adopting another dog so my Loki has a playmate to “supervise”. My daughter wants a GSD. Not sure if they will mix.
