What is in my rescued dog's past?
I got a little clue today.
We put up a 30-inch deep splashing pool every summer in a small nook in our yard (a hot tub is for the winter--this is basically a cool tub for the summer). It is enclosed on three sides by a wood fence and the side of the house, and is basically tucked away out of sight unless you crane your neck to look for it from the patio door. The dog has never shown any interest in this area--with or without its pool.
Even though we have no kids living within at least a half-mile of us, I decided it would be better if I at least had the thing walled off to make it harder to access, so I enclosed it using metal u-channel posts and four-foot X-pen fencing on that fourth side.
As I stepped back to into the rest of the yard to admire my job, the dog immediately started digging at the bottom of this fence.
