Recently, our good friends were moving across the county for the third time in 3 years. As they were starting to pack up the house, and boxes began piling up in various corners, their dog decided it was time to get all her stuff ready to go too. That afternoon, when the dog was let outside, she went out into the yard and began digging up all the bones that she had buried in the backyard over the last year or so. By the time she was done, there was a pile of bones laying by the back door ready to be packed up. This in an example of food caching. Maggie remembered where she had hid all her bones and when she was ready, was able to retrieve each and every one of them. Regardless of the change in seasons or the fact that some of the bones were buried for several months, she new exactly where she had left them.
