Mole in the Hole

Pierre Westie: “I am considering pleading the fifth amendment if I am brought in for questioning in the untimely death of this vermin. It is a mole and while I know all critters deserve to live a long and healthy life, they are not welcome to make themselves at home in my backyard. I am sure that you’ve heard the old saying about making mountains out of mole hills. Well, there is a reason for that. One mole can dig 150 feet in a day. These tiny little insectivores can destroy your backyard in no time! They dig tunnels right below ground level and it drives me crazy. I can hear them down there munching on grubs, worms, beetles and other gross things.
  
Anyway, Bentley and I were outside doing our perimeter search when I heard THE MOLE! I tilted my head to zero in on its exact location then bingo. My paws were digging at lightning speed. It wasn’t long before I was able to stick my head in the tunnel and voila…the mole was mine. Mom refused to have my quarry mounted for display over the fireplace. I’m kinda bummed about that but at least I have a photo of the big hunt. Please ignore the mess I made in my pursuit to make our backyard a beautiful and safe place.

  2. Chloe can relate to this!!! She actually caught a chippie!! Of course, I was standing right next to her when this occurred, so the poor, scared little critter was able to get away ALIVE because I insisted she "DROP" the poor thing! Chloe was so proud! So, I can imagine Pierre was too!

    1. Pierre left the corpse next to its hole. He didn't want to eat it, just kill it.

  3. Great job, Pierre! Bummer that your mole can't be proudly displayed over the fireplace.

  4. Mom wishes we would capture a mole, but no, we go for the wabbits and yesterday was a really nasty murder. Mom is still trying to get over how it went down. My sisters' first kill was not a nice one.

    1. We are still trying to find out why the cuteness of the intruder matters. It bothers Mom lots more when we kill a bunny then one of the more uglier creatures.

    2. We have only had one rabbit in our yard and it hightailed after it caught sight of the Bayou Boys. I don't know why cuteness counts. LOL!

  6. Our efforts have been less than appreciated as well. Mom says it could have something to do with parading said critters around the yard with out body parts attached or something and it grosses her out.

    1. I will admit to asking the mole to evacuate but think it must have had a heart attack or something...

  9. Wow! Congratulations on catching that mole! I have never seen a mole in my yard, but have seen and caught several mousies and shrews. It's out sworn doggie duty to keep our territory free of such rodents.

  11. Very impressive for a little dog. You really should have your trophy mounted and hung on a wall.

    1. Wouldn't it look great?!? I am fast and furious when it comes to exterminating moles!

  12. Be careful. Those moles love to bite your tongue which not only hurts but can cause a lot of swelling & stink.
    I seen it happen to a cat, nasty drool & stink made it impossible for me to even nose nudge. HuMom took care of it.
    Don’t get me wrong my furiend, I would have had to go at it too if it were me😉🐾

    Nose nudges,

  15. Oh Pierre, mighty mole hunter...you probably wouldn't want that mole mounted over the fire place anyway. One less thing to dust. Congrats on bagging that little varmint. Well done, buddy.

  20. Bravo Pierre!!! We have a lot of trouble with those creatures. Mice and voles dig holes and paths through our yard especially this time of year. They go under the snow! We would love to have you come and dead ours
