I recently did an interview with Linsdsay over at That Mutt for an article she was writing about collar tags and what should be included on them. In the interview, I told her about my experience with Edward, our recently adopted foster, who went missing just days after going to his new home. After recounting that experience with her, I think it’s a great time to talk about it here on our blog and make sure our readers are prepared for the unthinkable.

Dogs love taking personal items that are not theirs, especially if they are on your property. For them they are trophies because they are part of you (their favourite person) and carry your scent. As well as collecting them, they will often take them to other rooms and hide them in places like under cushions or in the laundry. They also have this tendency because they will do anything to get your attention, even if it means behaving “badly”. They hide your stuff because they like interacting with you. It also stops them from getting bored, because it gives them something to do, as if they were on a mission.
