Digging Sibe Quentin

Post vacation week at the beach, we are really digging Sibe Quentin. No, actually digging. And we bet you think you know who this post is about.

Guess again

Guess again.

Hu-Dad noticed that a new excavation project has begun just off the porch where the Senior Team hangs out. And just in case you think this post is about only one dog . . .

How's our project coming?

How’s our project coming?

Yes, this is a team excavation project. Hu-Dad asked what the goal was and no one would explain. Then Hu-Dad asked if we felt guilty making such a mess right off of the porch.

Guilty feelings? What are guilty feelings?

Guilty feelings? What are guilty feelings?

Fair enough. No one expects Queen Natasha the Evil to express any regrets. But what about Q-Tip, her fluffy white worker bee?

Nah. I know how to work the Hu-Dad.

    Mom sez: We’ve discovered that the quickest way to discourage digging where it’s not wanted is to fill the hole with the results of a “pooper scooper” project, then a layer of dirt over that, and Ice ‘n Ebby leave THAT spot alone

    I’ve stepped in so many that I put a brick in the hole then cover with a few inches of dirt over the top to discourage digging in the same hole. Hope I don’t end up with bricks everywhere. It’s really a husky thing.

Undercarriage Dog Wash

June 3, 2013 |

Q-tip loves hanging out in the yard, particularly on a rainy, muddy day like Sunday—even if it does mean he needs an undercarriage dog wash.
