Our 3 dogs seem to think this box that houses one of our hoses is also home to some kind of rodent.
The box is the first thing they check whenever they go in the back yard.
Two of them are pretty determined but if they can't flush anything out, they go on about their business.
The other one is determined to open the box and get inside to check. See the teeth marks that have been left on the top.
Smoke is the most determined. He just won't give it up. He's convinced there's something in the box besides the hose.
Tuesday night AD let the dogs out about 10pm to take care of any business they might have to do before we called it a night.
Smoke just would not come back in. I could hear him outside trying to find that intruder he just knew was hold up in the hose box.
He whined and he scratched and he dug. Finally AD had to go out, physically pick him up and bring him back inside.
He was filthy.
Which led to this - a late night, right before bed, bath.
And the bath led to this
I know Smoke still thinks there's something out there just taunting him. I can see it in his eyes.
He's thinking, "I'm going to catch that elusive invader and then we'll see who gets the last laugh!"
