I’m going to ask if you or any readers can shed any light on the dog’s likely intentions. It turned out to be a Scotch terrier. One day, he was seen emerging from a garden corner while holding a live frog in his jaws with extreme gentleness and tenderness. He then placed the frog on a flowerbed and started digging a hole in the ground while keeping one eye on the frog to ensure it did not escape. If it wandered farther than a few feet from him, he brought it back before carrying on with his task.
He excavated the hole down to a specific depth, placed the frog in it while it was still alive, and then quickly shoved the loose dirt back into the hole, burying my friend froggy alive. The dog then left towards a garden corner and returned with another frog, which he handled the same way. This happened more than once; he kept himself busy by burying live frogs whenever he could locate them. Now, dogs typically have a motive for their actions. What possible justification might a dog have for planting live frogs? It does not seem that he ever dug them up once again to feed himself.
There are tales of pooches that “understand the fundamentals of the science of trade,” including syllogistic dogs, sermonising dogs, hospital dogs, package-carrying dogs, and purchasing dogs. In addition, we discover that certain dogs have a sense of humour, can make friends with chickens, bunnies, and pigeons, predict death, and recognise themselves in the mirror.
By the time we reach the stories conclusion, we may concur with the statement that “a single story of an intelligent dog may entertain, but… if we have half a dozen exhibiting the same sort of intelligence, the value of the evidence is tremendously boosted.”
A week later, a reader offered the following explanation regarding the Scotch terrier who had a penchant for burying frogs:
For the pleasure of your correspondent, I believe I can explain the mystery surrounding the Scotch terrier’s burial of the frogs. A bee once injured my friend’s retriever, and ever since, whenever the dog discovered a bee on the ground, she stamped on it, scraped dirt over it, and effectively buried it, apparently to eliminate the risk of more stings. Similar to how the dog who bit the toad displayed every indication of finding the mouthful to the utmost degree painful. Most likely, Mr Acland-dog Troyte bit a toad in the same manner and decided that from then on, he was doing the public a favour by carefully and cautiously putting them underground, “out of harm’s path”.
