Today we went to the large off-leash site Point Isabel in Richmond, CA. There are tons of gophers out there, and one brave one was sticking his head out above ground and caught Gus's attention. He was standing over it only a few feet above where it was popping up. He tried to catch it a few times and failed, and then started to whine and yip at it, when it wouldn't come back out. He nudged the ground with his nose a few times, and peered into the hole. Eventually, he just decided enough was enough and peed on the hole.

He copes with frustration well. :D

Reminds me of a T-shirt from the In the Comapnay of Dogs catalog. "How to handle stress like a dog. If you can't eat it or play with it, then pee on it, and walk away." I'd say Gus did an excellent job of illustrating that.

That's a scream! Our 2 won't stop digging till they get the little buggers... our property looks like a network of trenches.
