I was making space on the memory card for my camera when I found these pictures of Bean digging. I had completely forgotten about them, but they made me crack up when I started looking at them more closely. She tries to follow gopher holes around my parents’ back yard. Sometimes you can find her with her face stuffed down a hole. She tries to follow the path of the gopher hole or whatever it is that has dug a tunnel underground.
If she can’t dig through the root-bound soil with her stubby little paws, she bites out a big chunk of grass, dirt, and roots. She’ll keep doing that until she can dig with her paws again. It’s both gross and hilarious because she always looks so disgusted by the taste and never succeeds in catching any critters. Silly dog.
