Life With Doobie, an African Hunting Dog Puppy

Doobie’s Bone Pile

Doobie gathers logs from the firewood and creates a bone-pile in our back yard. At 8 months of age, he has slowly increased the size of the simulated bones.

If he were in Africa amongst his pack, this would probably be where the carcass of a gazelle or something was laying half eaten.

Doobie Adds to the Pile

As you can see, he’s finding the good stuff in the firewood. He will carry a log as heavy as he can manage. I’ve seen him drag them from time to time.

Doobie’s Previous Pile of Bones

We try to keep Doobie’s bone-pile picked up. We don’t want him chewing on the sticks but it’s almost impossible to stop.  We hope to teach him to bring this stuff to us for the fireplace.

It’s hit and miss at the moment.
