so then what do you think of my Beagles who chew the eyes and noses off their stuffed animals? They rip the head off and then begin to remove all the stuffing (gutting)? I’ll then grab the carcass (emptied stuffed animal) and hold my Beagle up while he hangs onto it with his mouth. Maybe I’m training my Beagles how to fight… or maybe, just MAYBE, that’s how dogs play. Because they are after all, hunters.
