Testing out the video function of my camera, and decided to post this one....

Warning to dial-up users: This file is ~7MB, or about 20 minutes on a 56k modem.

Anyone else's dogs do this? I'm not sure why he does this, but he does it a lot. In fact, if you look around him, he's done it a lot here at the same place in this park. He's left little mounds of dug-up grass all over the park....

I added a warning onto your file for dial-uppers.

Your video is hilarious though -- I've never seen any dog dig up a mound of grass with his mouth like that! I was very amused :)

I like that part, too. There's a family right on the edge of the park that has a beagle (who you heard) and another golden....

I need to get myself a bigger memory card, so I can take longer videos.....

He's just always done it......at times, he'll hold his tennis ball still with his paw and dig around it..... I've always wondered why he did that....

Rick, that is hilarious! Tabitha will bite at the grass like that sometimes but she then grabs her toy or runs around. It seems Samson has other ideas! Too bad it ended when it did. It would have been funny to see what he did after the dog barked.

Awesome video Rick. Our dogs never dig grass this way :) They mostly start at one spot and won't move from there until there is at least 1 feet deep hole :)

Wow, he was tearing up big hunks! LOL I liked how every once in a while he would pick up his ball, then go right back to the grass, which apparently was a lot more fun!

Really, after the dog barked (howled), he stopped the digging long enough to look in the direction of the bark, then he went right back to digging.... So you don't miss much.

I'm still waiting to see these 3 tennis balls, Fred used to get 3 in with no problems, the only thing was, they had to be new ones or somebody elses, he was once in the shrubbery for a long time where he used to find tennis balls every day and when I went to see where he was he was struggling to get a 4th in his chops, Tom is quite happy with just the one at the moment, but saying that he's only just started to play with them.

Thats so funny. Now I am glad to see that not only my pups dig up chunks of grass like that. The only thing is that my pups wanna eat the grass too.
