Gibbs is Too Funny
Gibbs does not do too much resource guarding. He shares his toys and doesn't move his food from or guard his main food bowl.
Treat Bones are another story, and he does an extremely poor job of "hiding" them.
He'll get a bone that he'll want to save and he'll try to "bury" it in the carpet and in plain sight.
He'll walk to an open place in the family room, dig at the carpet with his front paws (he does no damage), and drop the bone in an imaginary hole. He'll then look at Dana and I see if we were watching him. If we weren't looking, he'll walk away. If he notices us looking and laughing, he'll pick it up and do the same thing in another spot.
If we later either bump or walk over the bone, pick it up and dig another imaginary hole.
Only once he gets frustated enough, will he dig his "hole" behind the couch.
He's smart in so many ways, but hiding his bones is not one of them.
