Preparing For A Major Bone Shortage

9 Dec

Cooper continues to be an important part of our family. It doesn’t take much for him to make me smile, really all I have to do is look at him.

Lately he’s been making me laugh.

When Cooper first came to live with us I got him some busy bone things, mainly to keep him busy when he’s locked in his crate. He loved to eat them and they didn’t keep him busy for long because he ate them so fast.

Since he loved them so much I bought him a Costco sized bag so he’d have plenty to enjoy.

A couple of months ago he stopped eating them and started hiding them. I’d give him one and he’d take off running, ears back, with a guilty looking stride. I followed him to see what the hell he was doing and he was “burying” his bone in a corner. If he saw that he was followed he would look distressed as he grabbed his bone and ran off again.

The other morning Logan came down and showed me what he found in his room while he was cleaning, it was one of those damn busy bones. Logan had left it on the floor in the family room and next thing I know Cooper has it and is hauling ass upstairs. I quietly follow and find him in the office “burying” his bone in a corner under a workstation next the drone.

Hopefully he didn’t damage any of the drone props while burying.

I couldn’t help but laugh and wonder just how many of those bones are hiding throughout the house. I went on the hunt to see how many I could find, but of course I never let him know when I found one.

I was able to find four others throughout the house.

The top two squares above are bones hidden in the dinning room, the bottom left is behind my bedroom door and the bottom right is behind the office door.

Cooper is clearly worried that there will be a bone shortage, so he’s hoarding. Maybe he’s stocking up for winter? Could he be part squirrel?

What funny things does your dog do?
