Dog Diaries – The Mischievous Digger

What can I say, Border Collie’s like to dig. In fact, all the dogs we have had, liked to dig. We find the digging seems to stop at around 18 month or so but before that, they sure can dig large holes in the garden.



We have been through this with Scooby and Shaggy and now here is Scrappy the ultimate digger. The problem with diggers is, they don’t just dig a small hole, they make sure it is large enough for you to see it and to know who has done it because of the signs, the brown nose and filthy brown paws – which are even filthier when it rains. It is difficult to catch the digger in the act as you normally find out afterwards when you go into the garden and see this lovely big hole, but, you do see the guilty face/dog that dug the hole. The culprit has this guilty look about them and is very submissive (trying to kiss up to you and act innocent), as they know it is them. This is exactly how Scrappy reacts.

It’s a well-known fact that dogs love to dig but they take it to another level when they dig rather large holes, which of course our Scooby did when she was still a puppy.

     Although Scrappy’s holes are big they aren’t as big as when Scooby use to dig, Scooby had the pleasure of showing the garden and grass who was ‘the boss’ and who was the ultimate ‘garden landscaper’. Scooby took this experience she had, with digging her landscaping holes and put it to use advising Scrappy on digging her first hole, of course Shaggy did not wish to be left out – especially after digging his fair share of holes himself – he stood by Scooby as they advised Scrappy in the art of digging holes and creating the lovely landscaping we wish they would not participate in.

Dog Diaries – The Cat Incident

Dog Diaries 6 October 2017

Scooby (12), Shaggy (6) and Scrappy (1) do not like Cats. They have a serious dislike of them. Most Cats do not attempt to come into our garden or even come close to the gate. When you mention the word CAT they will start looking out of the window, going to the door or often barking, they make their feelings known about CATS.

Last Monday afternoon a big Ginger Cat decided to come into our Garden, and we didn’t know. As usual when I went outside the dogs always go with in a big rush. Shaggy and Scrappy are first through the door and run like crazy to see who can reach the gate first.

Scooby who lags behind as she is an Old Aged Pensioner now, takes things a bit slower. Surprise, Surprise she turned and saw the Cat and that was it. Shaggy and Scooby ran to get it. The Cat jumped onto Scooby’s shoulders, digging her claws into Scooby back and shoulders.

 

Both dogs were fighting with this Cat, they both managed to get cuts and bumps but nothing too serious. The Cat ran into the corner and they cornered it. By then, I am screaming for my son to come fast, shouting “they have a Cat”. Out he comes and gets into the middle, to try to get the dogs away, he did manage and with lots of shouts and screams we managed to get them into the house. The Cat jumped up into the Frangipani Tree, out of the way.

The dogs were so excited after that and just wanted to go outside, but we kept them in just in-case the Cat was hanging around. Lots of excitement from Scooby and Shaggy, as old as Scooby is she can still run around when she needs to. Scrappy had no idea what all the fuss was about and was just running around wondering what to do but after the fight she was barking at the TV thinking she had seen the Cat.



After a while I went out and found the Cat had gone. The Cat was fine and no worse for wear and has not been back since.

 

Come back next Friday for more adventures of Scooby, Shaggy and Scrappy in Dog Diaries.
