I've lived with many dogs over the years, but until we got Sully I've never actually seen a dog bury something in the garden.  Sully buries everything and he's a master at it!  Chews, soft toys, chicken wings, balls, socks.  You name it, if he's not ready to eat something, or if he's done playing with a toy then you have to watch him - he trots off to the softest bit of soil he can find and digs a pretty deep hole with his front paws, places the object in the hole and then uses his nose to expertly push the dirt back into the hole (ending up with a muddy nose of course).  It's really very sweet, but you do have to watch him with things otherwise stuff just goes missing and it's probably buried in the garden somewhere! :lol:

Haven’t had a Grey do that but one mutt did. Have had Greys who tucked things up under their bed. Missing something? Look under a dog bed. Things weren’t chewed, just stashed for safe keeping.

No hole digging from Grace but when I first had her she hid the TV remote in her bed as well as my bridge camera which she had dragged off the table. Not a mark anywhere but a bit damp around the edges  :rofl

My first Grey, Wendy, was a master gravedigger when it came to food. She’d bury turkey necks and the like and dig them up for a snack once they were nice and ripe. #2 Grey, Lola, stole whatever she could get her mouth on and bury it under the cushions on her beds.   Jenny is a thief of all things edible or not and will hide her cache between the cushions on the sofas. 
Imagine my surprise upon finding a tomato stuffed between the back and seat cushion of the living room sofa. 

Gotta love ‘em!

Lila has a big hole that she works on regularly. About once a year she will pee in her hole then cover it with dirt using her nose.  Then I have to clean pee-dirt off of her nose. :lol:
