Golden - that had to be the funniest thing I've read all day.
But you could just get a dog like I had. We had groundhogs everywhere. So she went on a misson and tore up every...single.. trench they made. We had 3 acres. It looked like a war zone. But then one day she got carried away when she found home base and dug a hole large enough for the lawn mower to fall into, one more reason to watch where you mow. She was banned from digging after that.
But we won, for that summer.
