Got any ideas on this one????

2 1/2 yr old mini white, intact, for the last couple weeks, she has been "Burrowing" as I call it. She will get up in the middle of the night and go under the bed and dig!? It just seems like it is something she has to do and then she's ok!?
Any Ideas?
I thought maybe she was pre-inheat? Never had puppies. She has cats that she can be mean to!?

We have a digger too
by: Pam

We have a white 9 yr. Old and she has always been a digger. Not sure what is means. We will all be sitting watching a movie and she will just run under a chair or a piece of furniture and start digging to China. We just laugh with her, unless she is on the furniture and she'll sit with her back to us and start digging in a cushion, then we tell her "no digging" and she stops.

Makes Me Wonder...
by: Elizabeth

"Skippy" (male) used to grab his dry food and go place it under our son's bed??? We never understood that concept other than perhaps he thought that he was "caring" for our son. It was rather annoying however. Schnauzers are nororious at digging, etc. and remember, were bred as micers. They are hunters by nature. I would'nt think anything serious is wrong here but you can always ask your Vet these mine once told me, "we've heard it all before". Take care.
