I was in the front garden this evening pulling weeds. Mostly quack grass and thistles. I was trying to move fast before the mosquitoes carried me away. Duchess and Misty Blue were in the fenced in yard.
After 20 minutes I had pulled so many weeds that I had a blister on my left pointer finger and it popped before I realized it was there. The dogs were being quiet (so I should have known. ) I opened the gate to find Mischievous Misty Blue sitting in the center of my flower garden digging a hole. Maybe she thought that she was helping me weed? Honey, those are flowers!
I yelled first. Then took her to the side of the garden and told her bad girl. As soon as I opened the door to the house she bolted to my bedroom and up on the bed into her "I know I was bad" posture. She got 30 minutes in the kennel while I treated my bad hand and pulled a few more weeds.
The hole was almost the length of her body and 8 to 10 inches deep. I put my rake into the hole hoping to show the size. Puppies!
