Yard work!

What the heck is this giant hole in my yard????

Scott is digging out an unused portion of our hillside & extending the patio. This has created the ultimate doggie playground. He's taking all of the dirt he's removing& leveling out parts of the yard.

There are portions of the yard the Dogs are allowed to dig & portions they are not. You will hear me yelling "GET out of there!" and they know they've been busted.

Pardon the screen in this video. Lola thinks she in trouble and she tries to divert my attention from the digging by biting Penny. You can really see what an ornery little thing she is. Poor Penny has to put up with that on a daily basis.

What? I wasn't digging in nuthin'!

Hi, Lola.
That is a big hole to dig!
You are so adorable. I love your face in the last picture!
I think you were busted!
Have a good night

Lola, you have the face of an Angel. Just be more careful about getting caught on tape.


Boo said...

Lola is so darn cute! And boxers don't need an excuse to bite legs. Just ask Dakota!

Ruby Bleu said...

Lola, did the dirt taste good. I love dirt &'s way yummy!!!

Lots of Licks, Ruby

Ellie said...

Lola! I like dirt too! Since I was a wee pup I liked to eat it, roll in it, and sleep in it (particularly after it's warmed by the sunshine)! I also like to bite leaves. Lola, you look like such a big pup in that video! Are you really that big???

wally said...

Oh Lola, so sly! Lately I've been digging very shallow Wally sized holes in the corner of the yard in the shade because it's TOO HOT in the outside. You guys have a PRE-MADE hole.


Balboa said...


Cool hole, I bet it would be even better if it was filled with mud.

Frenchie Kisses,

Peanut said...

Oh my poor penny. Getting bitten by Lola. But in all thruthfulness I would probably do the same thing.

Hi Lola

We've had work done at our place too. A garden bed dug up and bulldozing to fix up drainage problems. Hobson, Rose and me ran and rolled in the dirt and mud the whole time. We near drove our mum demented.

Love from your friend, Hammer

MaPaw said...

I did not see any actual digging. That looked like you were just hanging out with your paws on the side of the hole. Lola, declare your innocence!

Tadpole said...

What a dirty HEAVEN! All that glorious dirt to scratch and eat and roll in!

And nice diversionary tactic, Lola - I do that too! :-)

fig said...

Hmmm... my tongue gets like that too sometimes, Lola. I have no idea how or why. I DO know that it's certainly NOT from eating dirt.

Reina the Doxie said...

Sitka and Tia's BLAWG! said...

Dirt holes are the best! It could only be improved by adding lots of water and making it into a mud hole. J x
