And Now, For My Next Trick....

...I will make my dog RE-appear!

Yep.  That's my 75 pound lab backing herself out of a hole she dug in our backyard.  I have known the hole was up there for months but had no idea until recently the extent of how spacious it was.  Earlier this week, I went out looking for both dogs because I knew they were not inside the house.  I could find Lucy, but Sierra was no where to be seen.  I called out to her and was shocked at an image identical to the video above.

Digging has always been a problem with our dogs, especially this one in particular.  Short of putting a shock collar on your dog and committing your life to watching them at all times and zapping them each time they start digging, there's really not a whole lot you can do about it.  One thing we read online is that if the dogs have a place where it is okay for them to dig, they might not dig in other places.  For us, that is the top terrace in the backyard, and boy, has this dog taken advantage of that!

The hole you see her coming out of in the video isn't really impressively deep but it shoots very far back.  When I'm irritated at Sierra for any reason, I think of the hole as the grave that she is digging herself, saving me a little trouble.

Anyway, I've been trying to capture this on video for a couple days now and once I got it, thought I'd share it with you.  

Keep It Real!
