Any other Bs out there like to "patrol" while eating? Darwin picks up a mouthful of food and then walks around the kitchen checking out the state of things. Also, he likes finish chewing his food over one of us. Foot, lap, whatever. Naturally I find his unique behavior completely charming!
HAHAHAHAH! Food Patrol!!
My Katie will grab a huge mouthful in the kitchen, then come and spit it out in front of us and slowly eat piece by piece. She doesn't 'patrol', merely guards the spit out (unchewed) chow from Tyler. "Guarding" for Kate consists of stabbing Ty with her snout. Snout poking must be the Basenji equivalent to WMD, because Ty always backs off!!
Both my pups do that! Drives me crazy when I'm walking barefoot and step on pieces of kibble in the living room and dining area. I think it's because they're so nosey they just want to make sure they don't miss anything you might be doing while they're eating.
Lenny eats all his food in the blink of an eye, but Tayda will periodically take one kibble in her mouth and leave it on the floor a few inches away from the bowl. Im not sure how she selects which ones get exiled, but usually when she's done eating, there are about 5 pieces of kibble laying around the bowl that just aren't good enough for her to eat. Lenny is happy to eat them for her though….
This works for putting on weight on b's.
