Rumble / Dogs & PuppiesShelby the husky wasn't as excited as expected when her owners gave her a nice raw bone. Instead of chewing on it, she wanted to bury it for rainy days in the living room chair! Hilarious!

Husky's are known for digging holes and burying their food. It is not uncommon for a husky to dig holes all around the backyard and wait for food, whether they find it, or are given it by their owners they can immediately bury it in the dirt. So when we see this hilarious dog take a brand new bone from her owner and make an attempt to bury it in the leather reclining chair, we figure it must be a husky thing to do!

Right at the beginning of the video, you hear the owner say "you are going to bury it in the chair, again?". This obviously isn't the first time this has happened. Watch as she uses her nose to bury the bone as deep inside the chair as possible, trying to get it deep inside the cushions so no one can find it! Cuteness overload!

Shelby the Husky seems to make a habit out of burning bones in the chair on a regular basis. You can hear her owner laughing at her saying "not again Shelby, don't make me wash the chair again". This looks like dog’s favorite thing to do every time she gets a new bone, heading to the nice tan leather chair to stash it away for a rainy day! One might think that the husky doesn't like the bone and that is why she is burying it deep into the cushions. However, it is quite the opposite. Husky's will bury only their most prized possessions and the food or items that they cherish the most. They do this to keep it safely stashed away for later.

When a husky buries their food, it doesn't mean that they are starving or that that they are trying to hide it from their owners or other animals. It is a natural instinct for this breed to bury their food since they come from areas with cold and frigid weather and food is not always readily available to them. When they get food, they instinctively bury it in the ground as a way of preserving it for a time when food is not available due to extreme cold weather. Clever, right?

Burying items comes from a time when wild dogs had to have extreme survival skills to get through life. These canine ancestors such as wolves, coyotes and fox never knew when their next meal would be and if they had any food left over after a kill, they would bury it deep in the group to keep it safe and cool. The soil also helps to break down hard bones that the canines might not be able to chew, making them more brittle and chewable after a couple months buried deep in the dirt.

At the end of the video, you see Shelby with a smile on her face. She is obviously proud of her accomplishment and happy with her bone placement. Once she has gotten it deep inside the cushions, she jumps off the chair and confidently walks away like no one’s watching. What a silly puppy!
