Default Bury?

Edee loves to bury my garden gloves she somehow got a hold of. I usually don't realize she's gotten one until it shows up on the carpet as a dirt mess. She won't let anyone near it, then in an hour its gone back to its hole which I can never find. Do your hounds bury too?

I had one who like to bury bras. Gandy buries his toys in the snow. This is my favorite digging picture, circa 1991.

Our old Ohdee would steal socks and bury them. With two teen boys and a husband, there was always a ready supply. Then all the boys had the nerve to complain all their socks were gone. One time I went to pull a sock from her mouth, and I swear there were a dozen in there!

She passed away over two years ago, and we're STILL finding socks in our yard. Husband is still looking for his wallet. He's convinced she stole it a buried it.

His name was Buster, but we often called him Houdini Dog.

I retreived a pair of gloves from the garden this morning, luckily before they'd been buried.

Bella has always buried stuff in the garden, and down the back of the sofa, and in corners of the room, but I always think it's because she's half Beagle. She'll put her chewstick in the corner of a room, then go get her blanket and cover it up.

I do sometimes tease her by going over to the corner and standing there for a minute or 2, she get's a bit agititated and then when I move she goes and moves her stash to another corner.

I've found buried christmas tree ornaments, socks, manky old chew sticks are generally retrieved and eaten a few days after being buried, maybe they taste better covered in mud. I try as often as I can to discourage her from bringing treasure back into the house because there's nothing worse than finding a something mud covered down the back of the sofa.

She's done all this from the very first day she arrived with us and I thought the OCD hiding stuff in the corners would soon stop, it's got a lot better but I don't think it will ever stop. When she was a pup she would hide kibble in every corner of the room, then every 10-20mins or so would go and check them all, quite amusing to watch but quite worrying that our sweet little pup got really anxious about it, but like I said she's really improved as she's got older, and probably realises that there's no competition for her food.

Heh really made me smile, I think my hound has realised the flower beds are easier to dig than the lawn, she's stopped digging holes in the lawn, and helps me to weed out the flower beds.
