Ye have sown much...and bring in little...to put into a bag with holes. Haggai 1: 6

The pup caught a mole
It was thrust into a bag,
But escaped from the hole.
Tippi shook it like a rag;
Departed is one mole
Who dug its last hole!
Poetry by me AJP

My husband had intended to humanely transport the mole out in the field far away from the house, but the pup took care of matters swiftly in her own way. Glad I didn't see that part:) I am also relieved Tippi didn't eat it.... We have lots of these moles digging holes in the yard and they can be a bit of a nuisance.

    A great "domestic" scene! Dorsey and Tippi to the rescue.

    What a neat capture.. Tippi looks very much in her element here. Moles beware!

    Great photo of your hubby finishing up what Tippi began! Drzl had a mole cornered under a rock, and Dave heard it screaming in fear. He felt so sorry for it he shooed Drzl away, then reached down and quickly grabbed the mole. He took it to a safe place....as it was shaking in terror. I was very surprised, but also very proud to see David's gentle side shine through. I do love this photo....it is excellent and has much meaning!!

    Better to bag a mole than whack a mole!! Tippi looks ready to leap just in case that mole was just playing possum!!

    Tippi is definitely at attention, watching closely in case the mole makes a break for freedom!!! Our Buffy once killed a tarantula when it walked into our camp. She walked back so proud that she had killed the intruder!!!
