I think we have critters. Not sure yet what type of critters but I think there are some around. The first clue was this:
The unidentified critters didn't do this. It was one of the dogs. We've seen this type of thing before. A couple of years ago, Hiker pulled off some of the lattice on a different part of the deck and caught a small rabbit. (I'll spare you the details unless you ask)
The second clue that there be critters was this hole that was dug under the pile of posts for the fence renovation.
Azule dug that hole.
Not to be confused with this hole.
Hiker then tried a different view on the holes.
For some reason, it was only blind Hiker and deaf Azule that were interested in the elusive critters.
They never did find any critters but it certainly wasn't from lack of trying.
