Shelby doesn't have an uncontrollable desire to dig, but she certainly likes it. Ever since we started scolding her for digging the carpet, she digs in her Snuggleball and crate bedding instead.
I recently started putting her toys in a pillow case, just to tidy things up. As it turns out, this has become a great way for Shelby to burn off her digging energy. She digs in the pillow case, and eventually toys fall out.
And yes, that is an old oven mitt in the corner. Cheap toy.

Digging, like barking, is one of those things that's bred to the bone in dogs. It's good that you've found a constructive way to indulge at least one of those instincts.
