We travel a lot and when we’re in a new place, I notice Tug does a lot of scraping in the grass around where he poops. But he never seems to scratch any grass or dirt ON the poop. I did a little research and found that dogs are not really trying to cover up their poop-but to spread their scent around the area through the pads on their feet. Ahhh!

Well, in Tug’s mind-he’s a big purple monster that’s really tough and scary. The other dogs don’t mind reminding him of his shortcomings though 🙂
