Mabel digs a hole

Monday 27th October 2008

I was in Cornwall with Mum over the weekend. This morning, Mabel continued to dig up her mouse hole. At least, it started off as a mouse hole and quickly turned in to trench, with no sign of a tiny mouse hole anywhere.

Watching her is interesting, she sort of goes completely mad and blocks out everything else around her. One of the most distinctive things she does is stick her nose deep in to the earth, then blow out through her nose, before breathing in again, with her nose still in the earth. We ('we' being family), call this 'snotting'.

This is what Mabel sounds like when she's digging and snotting:

Sorry, you need the Flash player to view this content.

Anyway, here she is in action...

Mum gave her some bits of chicken afterwards. Look at that poonum...

Super Mabel

If you've met Mabel, you'll know how mental she is. Especially at around 6 o'clock in the evening when her energy levels hit peak. Her eyes are eagerly focused on a toy out of shot, being swung round on the air on a piece of string.

Mabel is my Mums dog and spending the weekend in Cornwall has let me find out how Mabel is doing, who is now 1 year old. Wire Haired Fox Terrier (aka Terror), if you didn't know.
She's great.
