I want to know why the stuffing on the inside of things is tastier than the outside covering.

Seems to me if the inside didn't taste better we would have a lot more couches without holes, more fluffy pillows, more comforters that were not now lumpy and dog toy critters that have not gone through crazy destuffing surgeries. And, come to think of it, who told my dogs the inside was better?

Hmmmm - well, I suppose the inside of a dead antelope tastes better to them then the hairy outside hide? And the mighty hunters pretend the pillow is prey??

Yup! "Dissection" is a natural drive in dogs that exists in varying intensities in individuals and breeds. I always counsel people with dissectors to buy lots of cheap toys from Pet Edge or thrift shops and to let their dogs do it, with supervision, esp if you have a consumer. IME, Basenjis are natural dissectors for exactly the reason Sally said. Dogs that didn't dissect their prey died before they evolved into pets!

So answer: nature told 'em!

Fernie walked all the way around the building at the Albany Obedience Training Club AKC agility trial, with her sister Scarlet. Finally a laughing person pointed out the additional white end to her tail. Fern was carrying a piece of crate pad stuffing right there, like the last drop from a soft ice cream.

Sis Scarlet takes very seriously this job of unstuffing. She's good at it, too!
