Humans are strange animals!

We love our Mom and Dad, we really do, but sometimes they do the silliest things.  We were taking a nice drive in Montana when they decided to pull over and do some digging.  We were excited, we love to dig!  BUT, this digging wasn't for us - in fact, they made us stay in the car and WATCH while they were digging! Total bummer!  We're expert diggers and could really have helped and made things go much faster.  They just kept digging in these big buckets and then dunking stuff in water.  We were thinking maybe they were digging up surprises for us, like maybe some bones!  We wanted to tell them they didn't have to wash them off - we like dirt, too!  But, after what seemed like forever, they came back to the car and - NO BONES!  Nothing at all for us!  Just these crummy little red rocks that you can't even eat!

Mom says there's a lot of garnets in here and they'll be real sparkly if she ever get arounds to polishing them. 

We say - whatever!  That's a lot of work for a bunch of teeny tiny rocks!

We're just warning you - if your folks say they're going digging, it doesn't necessarily mean fun for you! So, don't fall for it!

Yup! The worst part is... You can't even eat the rocks!

What fun for your Mom and Dad! Sorry you couldn't participate, but sometimes there are places the doggies can't go.

(I think Mom and Dad should write a blog too!)

Momma says that garnets are her birthstone. Cool that humans get stones fur their birthdays. Us, we like to dig rocks, yesh, we do.

I never thought about that -- so next time, my dogs could help me dig and I'd get done much FASTER! Thanks Road Dogs for the tip!

OKAY. I'm not much into rocks either, butt my mom is. These crazy two leggers.

That's very much good advice! I can't believes they didn't invite you to helps them dig! You prolly woulda come up with something a whole lot better and more stinky than those little rocks.

Wiggles & Wags,

What a low down mean and dirty trick! I can't believe they wouldn't let you dig!


Fiona, as typed by Dr. Liz said...

The nerve! They dig and you don't get to?!? That sounds TOTALLY unfair to me! I'd contact your local union representative, if I were you!

Digging for something you can't eat?! That's ridiculous! Not even a bit of dirt for you to have fun with? Sheesh! Two leggers ARE strange sometimes!!
