We've spent the summer asking visitors to watch where they're walking when we get up to the Widget's House porch because of the whopping holes the dogs dig in the gravel. Now, these aren't "I'm-digging-because-I'm-bored" holes or "I'm-digging-because-I've-always-wanted-to-visit-China" holes.
No, these are something entirely different. These are "I'm-digging-because-I-want-a-firm-bed-in-a-hole" holes.
Please note the very comfortable but unused West Paw Nature Nap beds scattered across the porch. Not shown in this photo are another three very comfortable but unused Kuranda dog cots on the porch as well, each covered with a Nature Nap bed.
And if we fill these holes up, they're back by sundown.
So we've learned to accept the fact that sometimes -- well, quite often actually -- there's just nothing better than your very own bed in a hole. That's deaf Tyler, by the way, showing that his hole is a carefully engineered custom fit.
