Patches finds a hole

When our neighbor's little dog Patches joined us on our walk the other day, she found a hole, a tunnel actually, at the cemetery. She went in out out of it several times, and once she disappeared completely and I could hear her barking way back under the ground.

She's contemplating the hole, sniffing and digging a bit.
She decides to go in....

Amos investigates, Patches is almost all the way in.

She goes as far as she can and the hole is so narrow, she has to back her way out.

She digs some more, kicking up leaves and dirt as she inches her way out.

She's out! And she looks very pleased.
As I sat down beside her to take pictures, I was very thankful that she made it out safely, that Amos didn't follow her in, AND...that nothing else came out of the hole after she did!

I kept waiting to hear what was coming out of that hole, LOL

It is so much fun to watch animals and their antics!

Finding, following, and digging in a hole in a cemetery sounds like an endeavor that could end badly...a cemetery? Hope the dog does not turn up with a thigh bone, or hip bone ..or....

Cute dog, and Patches is most definitely doing what comes natural to the breed. Maybe Patches could find and destroy a mole or gopher or two! And yes, good thing Amos did not follow her.

The fact that Patches was digging in a cemetery briefly gave me a little trouble, but the hole was directly in front of a tree. I was glad when she came out "empty handed". And I bet she could definitely handle a gopher or a mole!
