We’ve had our dog Punkin for almost twelve years. For eleven of those years, she was our only dog. Her sole purpose in life is to sleep on pillows. And because we love her, that’s what we let her do. For some reason napping completely exhausts her (not to worry, the vet says she is completely healthy). She did experience some very brief energy burst in her younger years, but those burst have become extremely rare.
Then we got the Weenie dog.
She is the polar opposite of Punkin.
Let me tell you what Weenie is NOT.
Weenie is NOT lazy.
Weenie is NOT lethargic.
Weenie is NOT at peace with wild critters in her yard.
Weenie is NOT tolerant of lazy pillow sleeping dogs.
Weenie is NOT opposed to holes in her yard.
That brings me to a little story…
Purdy Weiner has convinced Mrs. Pillow Dog that there are boogies living under the dirt in our old chicken pen. They are both completely obsessed with the unknown, unseen invaders. They are partners on a mission to seize, capture, and potentially kill the invaders. I fear that if they do find a mole under the dirt, it will probably scare them both half to death.
On Saturday, Purdy and her tiny little legs dug a trench across the entire length of my yard. (See the bad picture above) Somehow, in the special way that dogs communicate, she has convinced Punkin to do her digging.
Don’t let her cuteness fool you. She is totally running the show around here.
Punkin has been digging like a machine all day long.
Purdy stands over her like one the wardens in the movie “Shawshank Redemption”. Look at Punkin’s face. That’s fear you see.
I’m telling you, she is a smart one.
Punkin can dig up more ground in 2 minutes than Purdy can dig in a day. I don’t know how she convinced Punkin to dig, but I believe she used intimidation tactics. Punkin is completely under her spell.
I love these dogs.
In addition to the trench, Purdy has dug about 50 of these little holes. I don’t know what she thinks she will find. I almost hope they do find something after all the hard work they put into digging.
Clay and Weenie.
If you need holes dug all over your yard and/or if you have a mole problem….just give me a call, I’ll bring my specialized digging team.
Good night all….
