MORE hunting for moles

I posted a couple of weeks ago about Mole season and how I LOVE IT!!

Well, some of you commented that you'd never seen a
mole. Let me tell you...you are SO missing out on some very good stuff. Just look at this plump little creature!!

(Would someone tell Penny that this fat little body looks nothing like mine???)

So in the event you guys ever DO see a mole (or hear him digging in your yard), I'd like to give you more details of my skillz.

First, find the little sucker. That's the easy part. Now dig around and throw dirt all over the yard.

You can see how exciting this part can be...just watch how fast my tail wags. (And if a stupid little white dog drops her stupid dirty pink ball into your hunting ground, make sure your Mom is ready to extract the ball and get her the heck out of your business!!!)

Digging can be very exhausting so once you've cleared some room to hunt, lay down & shove your head in there to see if you can locate Mr. Juicy.

Now, this is the most important step so please pay close attention.

Stare. Stare hard. Keep staring...

Stare a little more...

Don't lose your concentration...just keep staring.

Because eventually, the little sucker will come out and then you get to eat him!

Any questions?

He comes out and then we eat him? Sounds pretty straight forward to me.

Petra said...

What an exciting way to spend a day! I want to see a picture of when he comes out and you grab him and eat him!!!!

Cairo The Boxer said...

Wow you are a brave dog! I think Lola wants to play with you, after all that is what we boxers do best!

Let me know when you get him.

Mack said...

I've got a question - how do I get a mole to come hide at my house?

They look like so much fun!

wally said...

That's the kind of hunting I can get behind. The kind that involves a lot of lying around. I do that with the fridge sometimes. I sit there and stare and stare and eventually the ma ape comes out and --bam--chicken backs!



We don't have moles here in Arizona but we have these huge jack rabbits. They're so big it takes all four of us to get. Of course Mom freaks out when we do.

Digging is good! We love to dig. Now we know what to look for--thanks for the instructions!

love & wags,

We have moles in our yard but Mitch hasn't caught one yet! He says you're his inspiration, Sherman! They sure do look plump and juicy!

Love ya lots,

Sherm, That Lola is such an attention hound (pardon the pun). No wonder she drives you bananers. But really, do you actually EAT the mole? My mom would be so completely freaked out if I tried that. I don't actually think she would ever recover and then they would have to commit her to an asylum and then I would be homeless .... or at least without the thumbful ability to feed myself. I have very advanced abilities of foresight in these sorts of situations and very quickly calculate the pros and cons. I think I best not mole hunt. Honest, it's MY decision. Not mom's.


Amber-Mae said...

Digging is a bit hard for me. Yes, I have a question. How long do you have to stare until it does come out?

We had one of those things in our yard once. I'm not sure who got it, but we are thinking it was Edgar. He fancies himself the great orange hunter. That Lola is really butting in. Good thing your mom was there to take her to task.

Georgeous said...

OoOOoh eyeballing! i love it. My Mum person says we have moles, as yet I haven't discovered them, they look like a wonderful chasey game.
tip: get that Gorgeous Lola of yours to dig too! Double your chances.

Peanut said...

Good job. I don't think we have those here in louisana. Mom said they had them growing up in oregon but she never ate one.

Where's the next picture! :-)

My mom's furst Sibe Taltia was KHWITE the mole and vole stalker!

I, too, have started hunting moles. Oh, how I love it. I have dug many many holes in the yard.

We know how to live, huh.

Joe Stains said...

Moles are UGLY!!!! omdog I want to go find one now, you think they have them here???

Girl Girl Hamster said...

happy said...

Your instructions are clear as crystal! One question, where else can I find a mole if I don't have any at my place?

The Puppies said...

Thanks for the tips! Those moles look yummy!! Unfortunately we don't have any in our backyard... we will have to entertain ourselves with watching you get those juicy moles!!

Girasol said...

Lola is so funny, she tried to steal your thunder but mom was there.
Dis you eat the whole mole? did it taste good?

Ashley said...

You are much cuter than that mole!!!

Max's birthday is coming up and we are working on putting together a Vegas-themed Casino Royale party... any ideas?

Lady Kaos said...

Whoa! I think I'm ready if any moles come in my NEW YARD at MY NEW HOUSE!!!! WOOHOOO!!
Sorry, just a tad bit excited!!!!

Lenny said...

Thanks for the instructions. I will be on the lookout! I've never seen a mole!

Your friend, Lenny

Whew we had to sit down after all the excitement of this post......now you are talking!! Digging and digging and sticking your head TO GET THAT SUCKER....oh boy I gotta go... Agatha is twirling around here........Love Archie (+ Agatha the huntress)

Clover said...

Aw Sherman! You look so cute waiting for the mole to come out. Thanks for the lesson!! My little curly tail can`t wag quite as quickly but I bet I would be that excited too!
Love Clover xo

Trailboss said...

May I please borrow your mole catcher? We have some awful moles in our yard and our girls couldn't be bothered with them. But they are boxers and they look for big prey, like bears!

Eva said...

Dad thinks we have moles too. But I've never seen them.

Chef said...

Sherman. Now that we know how to find one of those ugly suckers, now you have to teach us how to eat them. Do they bite? Just asking.


Stanley said...


LOVE the mole hunting howto. You should definitely post that on Wikipedia. You're obviously a master.

Just so you know, Stella knows that you belong to Dot Spot, but that doesn't keep her from enjoying watching your booty metronome while on mole watch! You kept her occuppied for hours!

Goober love & smooches,

ChaCha & Yuki said...

heya! the mole does look juicy! haha i'm so different from you. i have a very short concentration timespan


the 4 Bs said...

that looks like pawsome fun. so did the mole come out and let you eat him? you are concentrating so hard on that hole. we bet that concentration forced him to come out. no mole could resist your stare! hee hee


Mango said...

Thank you for that most instructional post. We have moles here too, but I never knew how to catch one before.


Aniemother said...

We didn't see the video (maybe some other time.. couldn't make it work now, maybe we are too impatient!) - but thanks for the lesson!


Kapp pack said...

Thanks for the tutorial!

Woo woo, Kelsey Ann

Snowball said...

Thanks for the online lesson, Mr Sherman. Do you offer practical lessons too? We held our breath when Lola got near you. Luckily your mum was there to make sure you get your peace. Bravo to your mum!!!

Jie jie says that she love your tail.


Saint Lover said...

Go get 'em tiger! Brutus and Rufus dug up my entire yard last spring getting all the moles. They seem to think it great fun and share in your passion.

Deefor said...

Thanks for the lesson. Very informative. It sounds like there were crowds of folks cheering you on in that video. I'll have to check for them in the park.

Did it work?! J x

Ralph said...
