Tarr gets all important with a deer leg

Tarr gets a leg, originally uploaded by bouteloua.

Tarr got this special cocky prance when he was carrying around a dead deer leg. Like he thinks he has reclaimed his inner vicious beast.

We watched him futz around with this for a little while - he was feeling so, so self important. Then he dug a little hole with his paws, gently placed the leg in the hole, then used his nose to push dirt over it to completely cover it. It took him quite a while to do it to his own satisfaction. But he got it done.

We were fascinated: we had never seen a dog use his nose for a burial tool. But Tarr does things his own way.
