My husband has a relative that had a basset that would carry his bones all around the house and pick a corner to bury it in. He would dig and put the bone in the "hole" and then push the dirt back over it. Well...they had a friend visiting one day and she decided to help the dog out and covered the bone with a paper towel. The dog marched over to the bone, snatched the paper towel off it, and then proceeded to bury the bone in a different corner of the living room. They are silly dogs.
