Thank you. I've always hated that digging. It does nothing positive for gameplay, it's just annoying! Glad to be rid of it!

Thank you thank you THANK YOU! It bugs me to no end when random dogs start digging up my sims' lawns. Especially when I don't notice the hole until they've run off. Thank you!

OMG, I've been wanting this forever. To the point that I was gearing up to figure out how to do it myself! Thank you for supporting my continuing laziness.

I'm mostly found on (and mostly upload to) Tumblr these days because, alas, there are only 24 hours in a day.

Omg, I love you! This is amazing! It always annoys me when those pesky strays come along and ruin your beautiful garden, espcially when your getting it inspected by the Garden Club or it's just a general extra chore that's unneccessary. My sims have better things to do than fill in holes, lol. Thank you

I am so graceful to you "worf 84" for this MOST needed Mod. I was here just losing my everlasting mind. I love the pets and I do love seeing them walking pass the lots, but NOT digging those darn holes. I just yesterday saw a dog do the same thing in "real life digging holes". I just knew then and there I was about to lose my Mind. I love you "Worf 84"

Gah! I just had a wolf turn up and start digging like someone had hidden a ham down there. Does it not work on wolves, or is this what you updated after the initial upload?

Edit: Did that sound snippy? I didn't mean it to do so, if it did. I am still madly grateful for a mod that can stomp this anti-social and annoying behaviour. Just thought I should add this, in case my brevity sounds at all huffy.

Thank you so much for this!! It bugs my socks off every time a stray or a wolf walks by and promptly starts digging like there's no tomorrow. This is going into my Downloads folder right away!
