Our new Mini is trying to bury everything. He tries to bury his food dish after eating, he tries to bury me when we are in bed and he tries to bury my chair after I get up.
He is just going through the motions since there is no "burying material" around. It's the darnedest thing. It bothers my wife, I think it is funny.
We got him a week ago along with one of his younger sisters. He is 9 months old and his sister is 3 months old. Any ideas?

Don't worry...

I wouldn't worry they are only puppies.. my Benji, 10 month old, also tries to bury things, but not chairs or food bowls, his toys and stones when he's in the garden he pushes them around.. I love your photos they look very happy..and contented..make sure you give the older one the first attention as he could be doing his strange behaviour so he gets your attention..
