Tippy is my mighty mole hunter, which is great for keeping the little critters out of my lawn, but it does mean a few holes have to be dug in order to accomplish this goal.  Yesterday, on our walk in our neighbor’s field, she heard one running through it’s tunnel.

She stood on point for about a minute, contemplating her next move.  At just the right moment, she pounced and started digging. It was a Happy New Year for the mole, as he escaped unscathed…..this time.  And, it was a Happy New Year for Tippy because she got to dig and then head off to experience other smells, sites, and sounds of the day.

Tippy and I wish you all a vey happy, healthy, and adventurous 2016.

“Let this coming year be better than all the others. Vow to do some of the things you have always wanted to do but could not find the time. Call up a forgotten friend. Drop an old grudge, and replace it with some pleasant memories. Vow not to make a promise you do not think you can keep. Walk tall, and smile more. You will look 10 years younger. Do not be afraid to say, I love you. Say it again. They are the sweetest words in the world.” – Ann Landers

  1. Tippy is adorable! And look how much she’s grown since you adopted her! She looks really healthy and very well taken care of. I cannot wait to read more about Tippys’ adventures. Another thing- I like you writing style and I do enjoy your sense of humor. Kisses for Tippy :-*


    1. Thank you so much! I really appreciate the kind words. And yes, she grew and grew. It amazes me how fast dogs grow. In just a few months she went from tiny to 60 pounds of muscle.


  2. We have a huge mole problem at our farm and our dog Basil does the same thing. He will dig them right out of the ground and play with them like a cat until he kills them! I knew small terriers did that but had no idea bigger dogs would go after the tiny, ugly little things! Keep on getting them Tippy!
