Beautiful,  
I was in Ashland yesterday and noticed many people wearing breathing protection (serious forest fires in Oregon).  
The dogs on the other hand were left to endure with what protection we are born with.  
Getting a dog to understand and use a mask could be challenging but your post has moved me to write and say you may be able to convince some of our friends to engage the knit.        
I know this is a tall order and not likely just had to say it
I really love  the red one.

this sort of hole making was done in the process of building wooden ships
using a brace and bit shipwrights would bore from the top of a stack of planks  
and then pound dowels into the many feet deep holes

Hi Lori,
i just read this thread. It sounds like you are on a great adventure.  
Even though you are finding good things below the surface i'm going to suggest that you minimize digging. Gabe Brown will explain this.
I would also recommend reading One Straw Revolution, and Sowing Seeds in the Desert.  Both are by Masanobu Fukuoka
