National Mole Day

Drawing of a moleToday is National Mole Day. I’m not a mole but I thought it might be good to support other animoles.

And the theme this year is AniMOLE Kingdom. That includes me too – I think.

I do have one thing in common with moles.



We both like to dig.

But we don’t have any moles living around here, so I’m trying to figure out how I’m going to celebrate.

It’s kind of hard to have a mole party when there aren’t any moles to party with.

Maybe I could change the day to National Gopher Day.

We have lots of gophers around here and they like to dig holes too.

Now all I’ve got to do is gather up some gophers and start the party.

If I can find any, that is.

I’ve never seen a gopher.

They’re always hiding in their holes.

Maybe I’ll go dig a few out. That sounds like fun.

I’ll be back in awhile. Once I’ve got some gophers.


Boy, those gophers are sure hard to come by.

What? Person, what do you mean I don’t need any gophers?

This day isn’t about digging moles?

It’s about chemistry moles?

You mean moles that put on white jackets and play around with test tubes?

It has to do with molecules?

Molecules don’t dig holes – or play with test tubes. They’re too little.

I don’t get it.

The gophers are gone and there’s too many moles.

Think I’ll just go dig a hole.

Mysterious Hole

Bongo checking out a hole in the groundSince we’ve gotten lots of rain here, the ground on my trails which is usually hard as rocks, has softened up.

It’s become so soft that somebody decided to dig a big hole – right next to my trail.

This hole was awfully close to some cactus so I thought I’d better investigate to see who might have done such a thing.

A few sniffs here – and a few sniffs there.

Hmmm. There are so many smells around here. It’s hard to figure who might have dug this.

What? Huh? What are you saying, person?

You think I dug this hole?

Bongo with a suspecting look

Where would you possibly have come up with an idea like that?

I’ve been dragging you around on this leash. I haven’t been out of your sight for a minute.

I don’t know when you think I would have had a chance to dig this without you seeing me.

Besides, I’m not much of a digger.

I bet you can’t even think of the last time you saw me digging a hole.

Oh. Well, that was an exception.

That Frisbee was brand new and I really needed to bury it.

The Bone is Back

Bongo found his bone from yesterdayHey person, you know that bone I found? The one you made me drop yesterday?

Well it’s still here.

This is one stroke of luck.





Bongo picking up his bone

I think I’d better bury this thing again before somebody else finds it.

Bongo digging a hole

Okay bone. You’ll be safe in here.

Bongo about to bury the bone in the hole

This is really hard work covering up this bone.

I wish I had a shovel so I didn’t have to use my nose.

Bongo covering the bone up

Person, what do you mean we have to go now?

I worked really hard to bury that bone. I’ve got to dig it up now and make sure it’s safe.

I don’t want to go yet. I’m not done digging.

You’re going to make all that work I did go to waste.

I bet there’s nobody that works harder than I just did, and you’re going to turn it into a waste.

What’s that ant doing carrying that tail around with him?

Working harder than me?

No way.

I carry my tail around with me all the time. It’s no work at all.

Sign Down

Bongo next to a downed trail signThis is terrible! I think Detective Dog is going to be overworked. I just finished investigating that strange stuff on my puddles and now this!

I was on my way home from my trails when I spotted it. My trail sign is down on the ground.

How could this have happened? My dog friends won’t know how to find my trails anymore.


I guess I’d better check for clues.

Bongo sniffing the downed trail sign

Hmmm. Not much here.

Oh wait! More evidence. Check this out.

Bongo and a hole in the ground

A hole! I bet that’s what the sign came out of.

I’d better check out that hole.

Bongo sniffing the hole in the ground

Nope. No sign of any gophers or anything that might have pushed that sign out of the way. I don’t even smell a bunny rabbit.

This is going to require further investigation. I’d better go home and get my Detective Dog hat.

Bongo with Detective Dog hat covering his eyes

Oops. I’d better adjust this hat.

Bongo looking cool with his Detective Dog hat on

There, that’s better.

What did you say, person?

No, I didn’t. I did not knock that sign over so I could wear my Detective Dog hat. What do you think I am? Full of mischief or something?

Never you mind. I’m going back out there by myself.

Everybody stand clear. Detective Dog is here!
