Dahlia shoots munched to the ground by squirrels. What to do?

I planted my dahlia tubers in early May. By the end of the month the shoots were about 3 inches high. I went out to water the other day and they had been completely munched down to the ground by ground squirrels. Are they done for this year? Should I be patient and hope they come back, or should I dig them up?
