Tim the Border Collie Gets Into Mischief

Tim may seem like a perfect little angel, but he sometimes gets into mischief, too!

Tim the Border Collie Detects a Scent

Hmmm, what is that I smell?

Let's get a better sniff

Tim the border collie starts to dig
Let's Dig!

Praying I'll catch this one.

I just need to get my nose further down in the hole.

Maybe I can get it from this side.

Dig, dig, dig.

I just need a little more leverage. 

I'm gonna make the hole bigger.

Maybe if I dig really fast!

Damn, it got away.

It was so close I could almost taste it.

Now my human made me wear this stupid thing around my neck and took my picture

About Leptospirosis

On a more serious note, if you have a dog who has a strong prey drive or likes to dig, be aware that he or she may be at risk for Leptospirosis, a bacterial infection that dogs can acquire from rodents.  Humans are susceptible to leptospirosis, too, so if your dog is infected, you could get it from your dog.  An immunization is available for your dog, so be sure to talk to your veterinarian about  preventing Leptospirosis.
