Riley, no retreat, no surrender. Remember the Alamo!...er..actually forget the Alamo! Keep fighting the good fight!!!
and don't forget to wipe your paws...
I hope you weren't digging up anything important:)
Call in the French, the Scotsmen, heck even the Germans for something this serious. You maintain the trenches and leave the fighting to the seasoned soldiers, Riley T.
Your dog looks adorable!
