Digging Contest

Mom decided to plant some stuff in the empty flower beds in the back yard.  So we had a digging contest - Mom versus me.  The winner gets the title of digger extraordinaire!

Here's my digging.
And a close up.
Here's Mom's.
Her close up.  It's a pathetic excuse for a hole in my opinion.
So who do you think won the contest?

I will post pictures soon of the finished product.  Mom is also going to put a window box with some flowers on the front of the Siberian Clubhouse, so I will post those pictures too.  I don't think she's going to get it done until next weekend though.

Luckily, Mom and Dad have pretty much finished everything in the guest house where they live.  So that means more time to hang out in the backyard with us and work on the clubhouse!  Dad is going to build a new ladder so Steve and I can get on top of the clubhouse easier.  Also, the current ladder is next to the fence, so they have some crazy idea that we would try to climb the ladder to jump over the fence.  Where do they get these ideas?  So Dad is also going to try to move the ladder away from the fence.

No khontest!

K(h)at is the winner paws down!!

Silly humans - how do khan they ever think their digging skills are superior to ours???


The Army of Four said...

Oh, yeah. You've got her beat, paws down. She probably even used a shovel or something, yet you bare-pawed it. You ROCK, Kat!
Use the ladder to climb over the fence? Oh, puh-lease. Where DO they get these ideas? It's almost like they don't trust you or something.
Play bows,

Most excellent digging skills Kat!

No better way to spend a Mother's Day than to show your Mom how to do things correctly.

Was Mom using a spoon or a shovel?? We have to get your surprise box packed up and have Dad give it to the mail person tomorrow. We've put both of them on probation for slacking.

Humans are so odd. First they dig holes and then they fill them. How stupid is that? What is the point?

Cannot figure out how to send you my wolf photo. Write to me a and I will send Uncle Wolfgang to you via my "g" string.:-)

Kathryn and Ari said...

Wow, Kat! I thought Ari was a good flowerbed digger, but you have her beat. As for beating your mom, I think that's a given. Tell her to put more claw action into it next time!

Peanut said...

you are a much better digger.

The Husky in the Window said...

Oh that looks like fun. Mom doesn't let us help her dig. But we do like to pull up her flowers. She really makes a big deal about getting flowers that are husky friendly.

Kat, your mum's digging has no form or style. Clearly you are the digger extraordinaire of the family.

But one thing I'd like to know - where is Wilbur in all of this? I'm thinking of starting a Cat Pack... since you all have the SiberMal Society thing.

Wooo! Nice work. I tend to agree with Maverick... I think woo was looking for treasure!!!

Tucker said...

Are you sure your Mom was done? That doesn't look like a hole! She forgot to fling the dirt behind her!

Khady Lynn said...

Oh Kat, your hole is WAY better!

Does your human realize that whatever she plants is fair game to be dug up?

I'm just sayin'


Jack & Moo said...

Pffft- she calls that a hole? Silly human! Of course you win, Kat!
