"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.

"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!"

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

Yeah, I noticed that tongue thing! They don't seem to mind it much, though.

Ya, they pretty much dig whenever they can. 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!

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... But most of the time, they save the big holes for the proper place in the yard.

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

I should do a counting story!!

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

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

Isn't Lil Belle good at getting the dirt to fly, DOG? 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...
