Nexus suddenly pounced on a dirt spot in the grass and began digging. Viljo joined him and the dirt flew. I stood and watched. They have played this game before. Next thing I knew, a mole appeared in the excavated earth behind Nexus, mere inches from Viljo's nose. Viljo snatched it and shook it like crazy. He did that for quite awhile. Nexus, intent as he was in his digging, did not know Viljo had the mole until we started back to the house!
I got my Flip and made a little video of Viljo and his prize. After 40 minutes or so, Viljo began looking for a place to hide it. I nixed his request to bring it into the house. My tolerance for the game of Mole! has limits.
Got moles? Get a dachshund!
