question about peyton...
« on: January 16, 2008, 03:19:29 pm »
peyton has (for some time now) been digging the ground where we sit and play with her. we play with her and when she is done and tired, she will come up to me or darrin and dig hard at the ground (but VERY close to our uh crotch) and then lay down and stick her head under our butts. last night i noticed her doing it in her kennel with her blankie. she does the same thing but she sticks her nose under her blankie. my question is "WHY?" i heard of "chasing snakes" but digging??? just curious.

I don't know about the butt or uhm crotch thing, but Jake always digs before he lays down, in the bed, on the tile, on the carpet, on his dog bed, etc.  Our male springer did the same thing.  I always assumed it was instinctive and a hold over from when dogs were wild and circled or dug to make their bed.
