Ripleygirl, that is great story, and a brilliant solution
you came up with, and great tips on HOW to
help your dog find his very own digging spot!
when my dog is in SAND, he comes in covered in with sand. He has sand all over him, mushed into his paws, and all over his sides, even after a shake off, he has sand down in his skin here and there, and his legs are full of sand.
but, oddly, when he is in his dirt
hole, he walks out of it pretty clean. Odd. Now, sometimes, if he has recently maintained the hole, but re-digging it a bit, well, then his paws are dirty, but, his sides are still clean.
