On Animal Behavior

I’m no dog whisperer, but I do enjoy learning about dogs. Especially the dearest dog of all, my Valentino. Now, I’ll be the first to admit he’s a bit quirky. It’s most likely the result of spending so much time with me. Go figure.

For the most part, his behavior falls into line with that of normal canine behavior. For example, he doesn’t eat out of his bowl. Instead he takes a huge mouthful of kibble and runs to a corner of the house and eats it there. I’m constantly finding little piles of kibble hidden behind curtains or under pillow cushions. This is actually very similar to how wolves act in the wild and it’s pretty harmless, so I let him do it. Besides, I wouldn’t really know how to stop it.

But his newest thing? He’s started decorating his kennel.

That would be his kennel (which he loves!) , with is newly acquired red balloon and dark green throw pillow. I’ve removed both objects twice today and they keep popping back in. He’s determined to, as my sister said, make a house a home. It’s a little strange. And dare I say, adorable? Please Note: he does not attempt to play or pop the balloon. He just likes to look at it (?).

Anyone else have some funny animals?
