I have never seen this behavior with any of my previous dogs! Recently I noticed something very very amusing. We have an avocado tree in the yard and there are a lot of avocados that fall down. And Sunny, my 5 1/2 month old puppy loves them! And yes, thank god, he has figured out to eat only the fruit and not the pit, so I'm not concerned
. There are a lot of squirrels that try to eat the avocados, whenever sunny spots a squirrel he chases it / them and this is what he does after that:
He collects all the fallen avocados, digs a hole in the dirt (or in the wood chips that I've put around some plants), hides the avocados and buries them! He also knows the phrase "don't put all the eggs in the same basket" very well, lol. He buries a couple of avocados in each hole and then digs a new one for the others!
Have any one of you experienced something similar? Ill try to get a video of it the next time I see it
. Oh and here is the icing:
The first (only) time I saw it, I asked him "Sunny! what are you doing?!" in a very amused tone and his reaction.... Go dig up some dirt, pick a ripened avocado that he had hid previously and give it to me! That melted my heart
