Squirrel Tries To Bury Nut In Dog’s Fur: Adorable Viral Video


squirrel buries nut dog fur
On our snow-laden streets of Brooklyn (with more snow to come this week!), the local squirrels have been busily running around trying to find food. My son and I watched them on the way home from school yesterday as they frantically attempted to search for buried nuts. Two of them busily dug through gray snow, back and forth with their little paws. Another sniffed around the base of a tree. A fourth, lucky squirrel was happily perched up on a branch chewing on a found acorn.
We wondered if the family of squirrels would ever locate all the food their stored up last fall, which is now buried so far below the dirty, icy snow.
The crafty squirrel in this viral video may have had a better idea, or not. He tries his best to bury his food but the place he selected is not quite ideal either.

He chooses the fur of a Bernese mountain dog to hide his nut. The very patient pup looks on as the critter makes attempt after attempt. The result is hysterical and so, so cute!

10 Strangest Items Swallowed By Dogs

My mother’s Schnauzer mix, Sha Sha, eats just about anything.  I didn’t quite believe just how often she would quickly snap up everything in her sight until a few weeks ago when she swallowed a quarter and a nickel in the blink of an eye. The vet advised my mother to watch her for the next few days as the coins would likely pass. It’s a very common issue among dog owners and it doesn’t only happen with puppies. The majority of dogs do grow out of the need to eat inedible objects. It can be difficult to pinpoint exactly what a puppy would eat so it’s best to be vigilant about where you dog is allowed to freely roam. Many dogs and puppies have been known to swallow seemingly unsuitable items, which  you might not find in any way enticing or preferable, but they do. Check out this list of the strangest things swallowed by dogs as witnessed by the  ASPCA :

10 Most Common Medical Conditions That Send Dogs to the Vet

No one likes going to the vet, especially our dogs. Like many others, my dogs can sense when they are going way before we get there. They get nervous and hyper. Some dogs whimper endlessly at the vet’s office while countless others have fear-induced accidents right in the office. While regular check-ups and vaccinations are a necessary evil, we can try our best to keep our pups in optimal health thus avoiding another dreaded trip. Veterinary Pet Insurance  compiled a list of the 10 most common medical conditions that send dogs to the vet. Some are unavoidable while others may be caught early on. Dr. Carol McConnell, DVM points out that many of the conditions that most regularly require vet visits “can be stopped early or successfully managed in partnership with a veterinarian. To prevent some of the discomfort that so many pets experience from common diseases, the place to start would be by checking them regularly for developing problems.” Check out the full list here at Babb
