When we travel to San Marcos, we stop off at the Love’s (across I-10 from Buc-ees*) just outside of Luling. They have a really big open field where we can take a walk and he can do his “bidness.”

This time, Lou discovered a hole the size of a golf ball and sniffed energetically. I am not sure what live there – but it appeared to fit something like a mouse. After a couple of quick sniffs, Lou started digging. Within about 15 seconds he had the hole large enough to bury his entire head and shoulders.


It’s good to know his earthdog, terrier instincts are still strong.

* Buc-ees is losing it’s appeal. What seemed to be the coolest of places to stop on a roadtrip, now just seems way too commercial.
