Apollo takes a mouthful of chow out of his bowl, deposits it on the carpet, then eats it.

:jameo:

I've asked him why he does this but he just stares blankly at me.

At least he eats it, mine put hers in our sofa... like a Doomsday Prepper. :ohwell:

I read that back when dogs had to "kill", they would snatch a piece of whatever it was they killed and move away from the pack to eat it.

But who knows? Maybe he doesn't like the color of his dish!

Does he have a metal bowl and a tag that dings on it when he eats? He may get irritated by the clanking sound.
Also he may be dragging food away from "the pack" (even non-existent) to avoid altercations with an alpha. Even only-child doggos do that. Instinct.

Another thought/consideration is that some dogs don't like their whiskers touching the sides of the dish. So, if the dog is putting his nose into a deep bowl (for example), his whiskers would constantly touch the sides and can be aggravating for them, leading to them removing some of the food to eat off a flat surface elsewhere.

So, in other words, my dog is indeed a crazy prepper OR he's just crazy?

If some genius wanted to make a fortune, he'd come up with a way for humans to know what their dog is thinking or trying to tell them. If I were a different type of person I'd make a bogus scam version and get rich.

One of my Mals does that too.

The ex and I have refered to it as "Emmas take-out" for years.

I think she does it just to be able to nibble without being too far from her people.
