Anyone have this problem?
Not sure if this is a problem or not but after 11 years my sweet Mia has become a relentless, vicious mole hunter. Her whole life she has stood by watching my yorkie hunt and kill at least 100 moles. She finally decided to take a shot at it herself and she is having the time of her life! She is awesome at sniffing out where they are at and then dives in and digs like a maniac, tearing the grass and ground with her teeth. Unlike Barn Hunt, the moles do meet a timeless end. She shakes them ferociously and carries them proudly but unfortunately tries to bring them in the house. We have finally gotten her to drop them. We live in a heavily wooded area and have lots of moles. I believe it is safe since moles do not carry diseases and we do not use any lawn chemicals or fertilizers. I have had offers from neighbors for my dogs to take care of their mole problems, however they all use lawn chemicals so will not allow that. Anyway, just wondering if anyone else has a digging Havanese! I did not think they were a breed that digs. The main negative is the dirty feet and face...but have to keep her very short anyway so I can find ticks. We live in a tick infested area and Ehrlichiosis is epidemic. Per my vet who is also a chiropractor digging is one of the best exercises for a dog. For the first time in my life, I am grateful to have moles so that Mia can have so much fun.
