I've had a very busy day today, so I needed to just grab something fast. Our snow has melted now, and has revealed our poor ugly lawn, along with half a dozen gopher holes in the backyard. Gracie was more than happy to do her work and find the tunnels for my husband to insert the smoke bombs. On the left, she has actually got her nose down the tunnel...and on the right, she's got a hunk of grass in her mouth. She goes at this very vigorously, and doesn't like to be interrupted, or stopped from her "work". Ralph has decided it is just easier to let her dig to the tunnel, rather than looking for it himself. Sometimes they are a foot underground. Gracie doesn't depend on a new digging or mound, she can smell them underground. She thinks going outside is scratch and sniff time. When she locates a scent, then its digging time.
