Dear Nelly and Phenny - An Update

 Dear Nelly and Phenny,

We hope this letter finds you well.

As you know, since we moved to this house, we have been slowly working on digging a tunnel from our place to your place.

Now that we have left Canada's season of winter and entered the season of construction, we have once again begun excavations. 

At the rate we are going we would this project to last several thousand years, so we are thinking we should ask Callie' Man for hints, given one of his companies is excavation. 

We will continue to dig and hope to gain a few inches this year.

Your digging pals,

Lee and Phod

Editor's Note: For those newer to the blog, in our old house, Hailey dug up the backyard. At this house, we let her have one hole at the edge of the yard. Since then, every year both dogs have spent time digging in this hole. 


  1. oh oh ohh that looks very good... things what look good from the beginning will be good in general... we need such a thingy we saw in tv ... the name is bagger 293... it can help to finish the tunnel in one week... but then our pawrents are ruined for all eternity... umm.... well sometimes a tunnel is more than a wallet huh?

  2. Dear Hailey and Phod, have you thought about asking Nelly and da Phenny to start a hole on their end, then it would only take 500 years. What a meet and greet that would be

    Yes, what MadSnapper said... just like the Eurotunnel, meeting in the middle. Admittedly, the Atlantic presents a significantly wider margin for error... but gotta be worth the try, right? Hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx

  4. Dear Lee and Phod,
    I am happy to offer you the benefit of my terrier digging skills any time - just send the plane tickets and I'll be right there.

  5. OMDs The light at the end of the tunnel will be Nelly and Phenny with a light so you can see your way.
    WOW amazing
    Hugs cecilia

  6. Looks like you all are making great progress. Maybe Nellie and Phenny can work on it from the other side....then maybe it will only take 1000 years!
    Good Luck!
    Rosy and Sunny

  7. You two are doing a great job on your tunnel. Maybe the neighbor could loan you some equipment to make it go faster.

  8. So far, the princess pups Rosie and Baby haven't figured out how to dig a hole. And I'm not about to tell them. But good luck with your big dig!
