Lol, Selzer! Yes, I find it adorable, just can't figure it out!
Your theory makes sense, but... Funny thing is, the living room where her kennel is, is not where we hang out for the night (we have the tv downstairs in a different room, where it's cooler at night), and her favorite toys are down there too (the squeaky ones, which we don't leave in her kennel, because I read that they can be dangerous if pup is left unattended with them). So her safe "kennel toys" that she takes out, she rarely acknowledges them when we're home with her... just finds it necessary to remove them from the kennel... interesting!
