We have all seen those Hanna-Barbera cartoons where the pups always go about burying bones or digging them up. There is a reason for this – pups do that in real life too, to save food! Their instincts tell them to store leftover or plentiful food in preparation for lean times.
Of course, these days our pups are very well fed, and incredibly pampered! So they don’t have to worry about stockpiling food for a rainy day at all. Which means that when pups like Oliver the Beagle go about burying something, it is simply for their enjoyment.
There is just one problem for Oliver – where exactly is he going to hide his bone? There isn’t a lot of options for him, especially with Dad following him around the house. And he can’t shake Dad off his tail too! There isn’t really a point in hiding that bone if Dad is watching him now, is there?
