To think that my brother should listen to his dog and start digging?

My brother has a greyhound. She's very bright and every time he takes her for a walk in a particular field near his home, she stops and won't move from a particular spot.

She always stops there and he has a hard time moving her. She stares at the ground and won't move. When he does pull her away she leaves but with her head turned back at the area until it's out of sight.

AIBU to insist he digs!? What's down there!?

I think I would suggest he digs but may not like what he finds

Dogs have an incredible sense of smell but I can't think what a greyhound would find the scent of

My first thought is a body of some kind, may just be a rabbit but I would have to dig after such a strong indication of something of interest

I'm so nosy. I won't sleep now for wondering what this is.

How the fuck are you not there already, spade in hand?

It's probably where the local male greyhound pees.

No Euphemia Shergar is on tour with Elvis, Princess Di, and Lord Lucan . . . but keep it secret.

Rabbit nest?

VanitasVanitatum Sun 30-Nov-14 20:06:29

Please go dig!! Right now!!

Gileswithachainsaw Sun 30-Nov-14 20:07:22

Oh I'd be soooo curious

HonestLie Sun 30-Nov-14 20:07:50

Insist and if it doesn't work take a shovel and get out there yourself. In daylight though grin

When is he next going for a walk?!

If she's anything like my lot it'll be something dead and rotting she wants to roll in grin

Mine once found the remnants of a very long dead toad. I've never been more thankful to have very short coated and easy to clean dogs.

PumpkinPie2013 Sun 30-Nov-14 20:08:54

I'd be there with a spade either with or without brother's help! I'm nosy though grin

We can’t all be left in suspense wondering what it is - we need to know!

Faez Sun 30-Nov-14 20:10:23

I HAVE to know now, please dig!

Do dogs spot truffles like pigs?

fluffyraggies Sun 30-Nov-14 20:12:56

Personally i wouldn't be digging. I doubt very much if the dog is smelling gold coins! It's more likely to be something rotting hmm

maybe mention it to your local PC?

Join them on their next walk, with a spade (and a gas mask)

Selinasupreme Sun 30-Nov-14 20:21:00

Have you started digging yet?

ClangerOnaComeDown Sun 30-Nov-14 20:35:44

It'll be a den of some sort or dead animal festering.

But still I'd be there with a shovel!

ClawHandsIfYouBelieveInFreaks Sun 30-Nov-14 20:47:32

Sorry I went away! I can't go there as it's 4 miles away and I don't drive! grin

I don#t like the sound of dead rabbits...but I can't help but fee. it's too curious to ignore!
