What's up with this?

I've noticed that Kipling is doing something new and I'm wondering if other's have noticed this too?

In the last few weeks we finally started to allow Kipling out into the backyard to do his business. We now know his schedule and his signs and he has learned to 'clear his throat' at our back door to be let out. We give his command - go pee, or go poo - and off he goes.

Now that there is snow on the ground, and before that leaves, he has taken to pushing snow or leaves with his nose onto his little brown piles. He does not stick his own nose in..but he basicallys stands beside his offering and pushes snow over top.

Anyone else's Hav do this? Why do they do it?

(I must say I have called 'leave it' to ensure he doesn't start to chow down!)

LOL! He's burying it! We don't have snow here, so I haven't seen that but mine have sometimes buried their chewies in the house with invisable dirt!

I think it's incredibly cute actually - he comes in with a nose filled with snow...why does he want to bury it?

I dunno. Maybe he thinks he's a cat?

Smarty will "bury" hers, push leaves around. If Galen pees on the puppy pad, Smarty will try to cover it or push up the corners of the pad.

Galen buries her bones with her nose. She always comes in with a dirty face.

Murray loves doing the canine snowplow routine when it's on the ground. For some crazy reason he thinks he needs to stick his nose down in it and then do a RLH! It is hysterically funny to watch.

He tries to bury crunchy dog treats in the sofa, using his nose....the soft ones get snarfed down too quick to bury.

Kodi doesn't cover his poop, but loves to bury his bones and toys in the yard.
