Wannabe Truffle Pig

Maisie spent a little time out in the yard on this sunny Sunday.  There's not much security work to do, so she's decided to concentrate her efforts on a thorough sniff-out, in hopes of finding something she considers edible.  A low rent truffle pig, if you will.  Here was her plan for today:

Step 1)  Scope out the perimeter

Step 2)  Begin sniffing in most open space

3)  Relocate to more promising area

4)  Get closer to subject in order to facilitate more in-depth sniffery

5)  Attempt to taste and/or ingest item for research purposes, at least until that lady yells "leave it!"

Damn.  Mission unsuccessful!  Clearly, more practice is needed...

Maisie truly has so many talents!

One of the perks of having a backyard. When our dogs go "truffling", it's inevitably a candy wrapper, a cigarette butt, or a rabbit pellet. Ew.

Better luck next time! Skye's latest talent is leaf eating. If only we knew what went on in their heads!
