Foxy Behavior

Recent days have brought a couple of interesting observations in the yard. The scappy remains from the Thanksgiving turkey were carefully refrigerated so they could be doled out to the foxes over a several day period. One day I watched Bibsy (as I've named the bolder, white-bibbed one) visit the scrap pile. After devouring several bones he took a few from his abundance, moved them to a spot between a couple of trees -- and buried them! I am having so much fun watching their behavior. On another occasion while Rusty was barking at one of them, the fox paused, looked directly at Rusty and cocked his head back and forth in wonderment -- just like a dog would do. They are very dog-like, aren't they?
