Gopher Hunter

I was watering some of the vegetable area that isn't tilled yet because I need to till it.  Its very hard to till when the ground is hard and dry.    As I was watering, I noticed our Corgie - Lucy was walking through the wet area - sticking her nose in the water.   She then walked over to me with a half alive gopher in her mouth.   The water must have flooded their burrows and she got it when it was forced to the surface.   Here's a picture of her with her "prize" at her feet.    Its a pocket gopher which burrows all over the place and will burrow under your rows and pull your vegetable down into the burrow.
