I’m still getting to know a lot of the blogging doggies and their humans on line at Blogville, and I’m a bit behind in the events. So when I found out today was Dino Dig Day, I was at a loss for what to do to celebrate. I had already conducted a major dig in the compost pile a few days ago, and published my results. The mousies in there vacated the premises. You might remember that we also destroyed the Evil Squirrel Cartel’s plans to build a squirrel condominium in our big silver maple tree last week. However, I’ve been hearing members of the Conniving Chipmunk Consortium chirping back and forth just outside our yard lately. The CCC is usually quite harmless except when they find a way to get under the aluminum siding on our house. For that my esteemed colleague Joseph (Joey dog) Stephens and I have been contracted to foil their real estate plans too.
Still wondering what I should do for Dino Dig Day, I wandered outside to do my business. Suddenly I picked up a scent! It was coming from the log pile in back of the yard. I immediately identified that scent as chipmunk, and began an investigation.
These logs are quite large, so it will take a concerted effort to access the chipmunks underneath.
I think I’m going to be busy digging for a while. And that’s a memo.
