Milwaukee –  Dozens of dogs entered and almost 12,000 customers voted. Today, Spartacus, a 6-year-old, 6-pound Pomeranian from Caledonia, Wisconsin, was named our new safe digging “ambassadog”!

He may be little, but we’re giving him the huge responsibility of reminding our customers to call 811 at least three days before you dig.

Keep an eye out for Spartacus as part of our new ad campaign:
