Digging Lessons

While at the river, I met a really nice Golden named Bear. I was minding my own business, but Bear wanted to play. It requires a lot of concentration to dig the perfect hole, so I didn’t pay much attention to him. Bear chose another strategy. Here’s how it went:

Bear: If I can’t get you to play, Sage, I might as well join you in the hole digging game. I’ll dig up here.

Digging dogsBear: Uh, Sage. Why isn’t my hole getting big like yours?

Sage: Well, if you want a proper hole, that sand has to fly! Would you like a lesson?

Bear: Wow! YES. Where should I stand?

Sage: You might want to get on the other side of me. 😀

Bear: It looks like you work close to the shoreline and let your hole fill with water. Why is that?Watching the masterSage: The smells are better down here–not sure what it is, but it seems a bit fishy.  And water’s good when you get hot from all that digging. Did you know I like mud puddles?a mud puddleBear: That has to be one of the best holes yet. I can’t wait to work on one of my very own! Thanks for the lesson, Sage.The final masterpiece

  1. What a nice woofie you are to give lessons to bear. There once was a golden retriever in our family named Bear. Sage, it appears as if you had a purrfect day. XO, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo


  2. This is coming from the biped. You have a great book here. I realized when I saw Sage’s photo that every time I come to this site it makes me feel good. The mud antics are precious, the photos terrific, the captions funny and endearing, and today’s… a whole book flashed before my eyes. Have you ever thought of that? Not joking around here. All that aside, once again we all enjoyed this one, so much fun! wag wag.


  3. Hey Sage, we learned a lot from that lesson too – now if only we could find a big body of water like you have there.
