When I was growing up I was at a friend's house who had a huge pit bull. The little old lady next door had a Chihuahua. One day while we were on his porch his dog came up with the Chihuahua in his mouth and it was dead. We panicked. We figured maybe we could just reattach it to its leash and hope the little old lady thought her dog died on its own. A few hours later we hear her screaming! We run over and she's holding her dead dog. She asked who would do such a thing? We said it looks like it died on its own. She said "It died two days ago. Someone dug it up and reattached it to its leash!"

buckets_of_fun: So the morale of the story is dead puppies are delicious?


No, the morale of the story is low.
The morel of the story is an edible mushroom found in early spring.
The moral of the story is, a dog may not know why it buries a pup, but it may a cur to it later.

Dear Jerk: Michael Pollan's latest book is partly about fermenting. Up in Iceland they'll bury a type of shark and let the microbes work on it for a year or so. It comes out smelling none-too-good, but it's a delicacy. To them. I'll bet, to a dog, that pup will be delish.


I don't think they bury food as any kind of preparation. I think it's more to keep other predators from getting at it.

That said: Don't anthropomorphize dogs. They hate that.

I thought it was a rabbit and being put back in its hutch.  But what do I know, it was your childhood.

I for one cannot WAIT to get on Facebook this afternoon to see how this has blossomed into a many-headed tirade about anthropomorphism versus OMFG YOULIBSRALLRETARDS! to it obviously being Obama's fault because his wife has or had bangs - and of course we all know what THAT means!!

omeganuepsilon: Greylight: It doesn't threaten anyone's "soul" or "superior intellect" to admit that our domesticated dogs are capable of communicating at about the level of a two or three year old.

I wouldn't necessarily back that claim.  They're both smart and incredibly retarded in a variety of ways, and that varies dog to dog and child to child.   I don't think they are comparable.  They are similar, but still alien.  A lot of what we "know" is still conjecture, superstition, and flat out guessing.

Not calling the claim a lie, not meaning offense, just calling it misleading and/or not applicable....wrongly confident?  I hope the concept comesacross anyhow...


Man is everything a dog looks for in a pack leader: we like to eat meat and love to throw the OMG BALL!

Provided it's true, THAT is a CSB.


That joke has been around longer than dirt.

When the cat got squished under the garage door we buried him in the back yard.   The dog dug him up and gnawed on him like a chew toy.
