I wonder why and I know a lot of my dog friends wonder why too because I read about it on their social media posts. I wonder why mom is so excited when I do my business and I wonder why she sometimes carries it all the way home and then saves it or sometimes leaves it in various spots along the way on our walks. This post will ponder questions that us dogs have but are afraid to talk about regarding “our business”.
First I find it odd that humans do their business on those funny cold chairs in small rooms in the house – it really does not get any more uncomfortable than that! Dogs never really care if or when their human does their business but we do worry if the door to this room with a chair is closed as there may be a secret exit in there and we don’t ever want to lose track of our humans! Honestly, I don’t think I could ever bring myself to use one of these chairs for my business and besides, for me, doing my
business in the house is strictly forbidden! Wouldn’t it just be easier for our humans to just use the great outdoors like we do with that nice feeling of grass tickling our behinds – much nicer than a cold hard chair!
Since I feel this way about my human, I often wonder if mom feels bad that I don’t take more interest when she does her business? I just don’t see the point I guess, sorry, mom.
Then I have to wonder what it is that makes mom so excited when I do my business? Ever since I first came to live with her she has cheered and smiled and made a big thing of it, I mean really, I would do it with or without her cheering. She has this “bag of bags” in the closet with our leashes and every time we go for a walk she takes a few with her and if my sister or I do our business, she gets all happy, praises us and then picks it up in these bags and carries it along with us. I wonder why? Sometimes she will leave it in these round containers along the way. Lots of humans leave doggie business in these containers as I can sure smell all of it! Sometimes she will carry it with us all the way home and then she puts it in her special plastic pail with a cover in the garage. Why, I do not know. I find this behavior very odd. Sometimes when we go to the vet she even brings it along and gives it to the vet – I am guessing it is a really special gift or something. Really, have you ever seen a dog pick up human business and carry it around or give it to another dog? I find this human behavior very odd and if anyone understands the reasons behind it let me know. I just hope that mom is not offended that I don’t care about her business as I never want to disappoint her!
One pawnote – we aren’t allowed to do our “business” in the yard, so we only do it on walks. Since we came to live with mom she has taught us to go for a walk, do our thing and then come home to play in the yard, so we never think of using our yard for our business. We have seen other friends that use their yards for their business and have their humans picking up all their “yard business” and keeping it as well – this is so strange!
