Digging For The Truth

While visiting Montrose Dog Beach, we often see people without dogs strolling along the sand to enjoy the view of pups at play. So it wasn’t unusual when we saw a man leaning against the fence and lazily staring out at the lake.

Eko and I paid the man no mind, but Penny, perhaps watching too many episodes of The X-Files, felt the truth was out there. Rhodesian Ridgeback, chicago, blog, montrose dog beach, adventure

Penny stood in front of the man and stared out at the lake with him

“Hey, wait a minute….” Penny mightily yowled

But the investigation seemed to be a major dud to me. All I saw was sand, snow and ice

Undeterred, Penny dashed into the powder to dig for the truth

My reckless paleontologist furiously dug up the site. I thought Penny was just tossing around snow for fun

Until I saw a sudden flash of movement from the dig site. From beneath the snow a winter beast emerged

But the arctic pup didn’t run for long. He quickly dove into a fresh pile of powder and began to build a new igloo around himself

Penny was quite perplexed by the little polar bear’s behavior

Confused, Penny looked at the man by the fence for answers. He just laughed and told me, “Yeah, he loves to just bury himself in the snow. He’s a nut.”

Penny might not understand the burying-yourself-in-the-snow thing, but being a nut? Penny understands that quite well!

My boys are diggers. They love to dig trenches and then run along them and bark. They love the added bonus of an ice patch for a run, run, run, sssllliiddee across the ice game.
Happy hunting Penny Girl.
