I was not impressed
when I discovered that the coon dog pup
had dug a basketball size hole
under the play set.
However, I was grateful
it was under the play set,
so I didn't have to see it every time
I walked into the backyard.
Upon closer inspection,
that he had stopped digging
when he got to this glass bottle.
So I lifted it out with a shovel.
Why did the dog stop digging
when he got to the bottle?
Did he smell it?
And if he did smell it,
Why not months ago?
Once he saw it was a bottle
did he loose interest?
Did the smell dissipate?
I just don't understand a dog's nose.
And he wouldn't answer any of my questions.
I have no idea how things like this get buried.
When I showed it to him,
I expected the pup to lift it off the shovel
with his teeth and prance around
the yard with his "trophy".
He just gave it a passing "ho hum" glance.
I said, "Good job pup.
Next time dig up a million bucks."
I don't think he was listening.
