The Hole

Bongo inspecting a holeWhat’s this?

It’s a hole.

A hole in the parking lot of my trails.

And I bet I know who did it.

Those pesky gophers.



They’re always digging holes on my trails.

And piling up mounds too.

Normally they stay off my trails and don’t cause any hazards for anybody.

But look at this!

They’re traveling right out into the parking lot.

Building a whole network of underground tunnels.

And if they’re not careful this whole parking lot’s going to collapse.

It’s already started.

Gopher hole

What if somebody falls into this hole and disappears into a deep, dark gopher kingdom.

Or what if those gophers don’t stop at the parking lot.

What if they tunnel all the way to my house and my house falls in.

This has got to stop.

This has got to stop now!

I’m getting me some gopher traps.

Now I’ve just got to figure out how to fit into those tunnels so I can lay those traps where the gophers will find them.

Which Gopher Wins?

Bongo checking out a gopher holeWe’ve had lots of rain and some snow lately and it really soaked into our normally dry ground – so now that the weather is clear again the gophers around here are having a heyday.

Mounds and holes are everywhere on my trails. One day I even found a hole right in the middle of the trail. Pretty nervy of that little guy.

But usually the digging evidence is off to the side of the trails where the ground is softer and those little guys don’t have to work so hard to get through.

I’ve never, ever seen one of those gophers on my trails. I think because I’m such a big, manly kind of dog I must make the earth shake as I walk. Those little guys sense it before I ever get near and run back down their little holes in sheer fright.

Not that I’d ever hurt a gopher. I’d just like to play with one for a little while. Or chase it into the woods. If it would only run on solid ground.

But I finally found the cleverest gopher of all. This gopher doesn’t need to run back down his hole anytime someone big comes near. This gopher really knows how to dig a hole.

This gopher has his own entrance with special armored protection.
