funny things that they do
So when I got home from work yesterday (Perry was home with my hubby and the housekeeper) and went into the bedroom to change, Perry kept running into his crate then backing out and looking at me - and when I didn't do anything, he'd do it again. I looked inside and didn't see anything (I thought maybe one of his toys was in there). So, I walked into the bathroom and when I walked out there was a piece of poop sitting on the floor in front of the bathroom and he was staring at me. When I picked it up, it was solid - definitely not fresh. Best I can figure is that sometime between when I put him in for breakfast and when my husband let him out an hour or so later he couldn't hold it and pooped a little (which is weird because he goes right before I leave for work) OR he had a piece sticking to his fur when we came inside that I didn't notice that he carried into his crate.
In any event, he definitely decided that he did NOT want it in his crate and when he tried to get me to find it in the actual crate and I was too dim (couldn't see anything in the crate and couldn't figure out what he wanted me to see), he decided he had to remove it himself for Mommy to get rid of (it definitely was not on the floor when he left it before I went into the bathroom). At least it tells me once and for all that I don't have a poop eater - he's willing to touch it to remove it from his space, but only far enough so that someone else takes care of it!
He definitely is a funny about his potty habits. I've mentioned before if he pees on an area rug (or the doormat) because I think he thinks it's a pad, he'll try to cover up the spot with the rest of the rug. He will do the same thing when he decides that the grass is too long and will pee on the rock walkway in front of the house - there are rocks and grass in between them and if he hits the grass all is fine, but if he hits the rock then he will stand there and nose at the grass trying to push it over the rock to cover up the pee on the rock!
