Grace in the Hole

It's a fine October day and the Pack is out playing.

"Grace, what are you doing in that hole?"
76199
"Hidin'"

"Well, why are you hidin'?"
76200
"So's I can jump out at unsuspecting victims!!!"

76201
"Hey! Wait a minute!! That's MY hole, Ridge!!"

"Oh, no, Brier! Ridge won't get out! What am I gonna do?"
76202
"Sit tight! I'll get Belle! She'll be able to get Ridge outta there!"
And he ran off to get Belle.

Once she heard the problem, Belle was over like a flash.
She barged right into that hole with Ridge, but she couldn't get Ridge to budge.
76203
"Sorry, Grace. Ridge won't give up the hole. But I have an idea!" barked Lil Belle.

"Over here, Grace! We'll dig you a NEW and BETTER one!"
76204

"Wow, Belle! That's a great idea!
76205
"And an impressive start!"

As Belle dug, Grace got more and more excited.
76206
"Go for it, Lil Belle! Go for it! Deeper! Deeper!"

"Check it now, Grace. Whaddya think?"
76207
"Deeper! Deeper!"

So Belle dug a little more.

"Let me just get out some of these leaves...
76208

"What do you think now?
76209
"Let me try it! Lil Belle, I think this just might be big enough now!"

"Yep, I think this is just about perfect!"

Grace stood up, turned around three times, throwing her head up at each half-turn as she put the final nesting touches on her new Hole...
76211

...and then plopped down into it.
76212

76213
"Thanks, Lil Belle! It's absolutely perfect!"

What great pictures and a wonderful story. As usual I love it! Although Grace's tongue needs a bath...:eek: But I very much love the leaf earing - very outdoor doggy trendy.:thumbs up

Great story Hazel and Grace!! I loved it :lovestruck:

Love the pic of the earth flying in the air

do they always dig holes hazel??

Ya, they pretty much dig whenever they can. :D The grass doesn't grow down there, anyway, and when they rush to that corner in their wild run every morning, it shoves all the loose dirt into that corner. Although the hole looks deep, it barely goes to the bottom of the fence and they're more inclined to go down than sideways. So we're good! :thumbs up

I don't mind the holes in the sandy corner so much as I hate the holes they dig in the lawn trying to unearth those pesky moles... :frustrated: But most of the time, they save the big holes for the proper place in the yard. :D

That could be printed into the cutest children's book. Fantastic pics and narration.

Can you imagine the logistics of transporting them all? :eek: About the time they arrived and got all sorted out, it'd be time to go home again! :laughing: But wouldn't that be grand? :D

oh man, this is great *L* gotta love the pack, my grandson pointed and said "wow...free puppies" *L* 3 puppies, ok, so he can't count yet.

:laughing: :lightbulb: I should do a counting story!! :thumbs up

Thx, Melinda! Glad the story passed the grandson test (*whew*) :D

I'm seriously considering trying to find a publisher again, Winston. It's discouraging, though. :o So much more fun to write them than to try to sell them to someone else. :laughing:

Isn't Lil Belle good at getting the dirt to fly, DOG? :D She's our best digger as far as depth of hole and magnitude of spray. Brier, however, still holds the Pack's speed record of about 50 ft of mole tunnel excavated in less than a minute... :rolleyes:
