Right now my girl, "Schnoopy" is 11-12 years (I found her she looked less than a year). She's been human since coming into our home, which has been horrible for me, but since we moved into an apt, she's learning how to live a more structured, organized lifestyle - in a crate, even!smile
Anyway, here's what is happening. When she goes to the bathroom now - either peeing or pooing - she'll turn around, and with her nose, start covering up the area that she "made" in. The first time she did this was when we put her in her crate. It was wierd, because we'd never seen her do this before. She'll rub her nose along the ground, and won't stop until she covers up her mess. In the crate, she did it before lying down and getting comfortable.

Has to be instinct kicking in, right? She has NEVER done it before!!smile
