I know its been mentioned a lot in my blog, about me wanting to bury things like bully sticks and other chews. But the Lady doesn’t think she’s gone far enough to prove to you just how ridiculous I am. Think the Travelers Insurance commercial where the dog is walking all over the city with his bone in its mouth to the tune, “trouble, trouble.” In case you don’t know what I’m talking about:
It happens almost every afternoon, right about the same time, mid-afternoon. I wake up from my after-walk nap needing something to do until dinner time. The Lady sees me walking around with my well-loved and well-chewed Nylabone in my mouth looking for some place to bury it. She just looks up and says something like “Where are you going with that Dolly?” Or, “I better not find that under my pillow.” Then she forgets about it until she finds my bone under her pillow at bed time, or in her TV chair under the pillow, or in the couch. You get the picture.
But, she’s never documented it. Every time I do it she doesn’t have her phone, or the house is a mess, or the lighting is no good. Until the other day when she caught me red-pawed. You can’t hear her in the video because of the music, as she follows me around, making me a bit uneasy, telling me “good dog leaving it in your toys,” or “not in the couch,” or “not in dad’s chair” until I drop it because she knows I’m heading for her TV chair. You can’t exactly tell where I dropped it though. Right in front of her bedroom door, where it isn’t the first time that she steps on it in bare feet in the middle on the night.
But something is missing in the video, she’s probably saving it for next time. When I decide on the location to bury it, like my dog bed, I use my nose to push it under a pillow and to cover it up. I rub my nose so raw sometimes it bleeds.
So, if you’re anything like the Lady, next time you take your mattress off the bed only to find a Whimzee that’s been under it for at least a year, you’ll know just to humor us and go with it. It’s instinct you know, wanting to bury our bone.
