Yesterday, I spent more time out in the dog pen blocking up another Belle tunnel, one that she's been using frequently this past week until I finally found it. But Miss Belle, clearly no quitter, went to work this afternoon on a new one, and this time she made the mistake of working on it in view of the back door, so that when I went to check on the dogs, there she was, on her belly in the dirt, scraping a new hole under a section of the fencing right in front of me.
As I actually caught her in the act, a correction was applied this time. She obviously felt the chastisement because she went right after Murphy to tune him up for something real or imagined. I guess nothing makes you feel good after getting punished like punishing someone else.
Darn dogs. We'll see if this scolding sticks. I doubt it though.
