Having had a dog for 17 years, and taken immense interest in other peoples dogs since my own went on that big sleep, I can honestly say, I have never
seen any dog show any sign whatsoever of worrying about bacterial infection. Have you ever watched what they'll eat
My own dog liked nothing better than to roll in poop! And while out walking, my friends dog found a pit where a farmer had dumped dozens of rotting
sheep, and he took great pleasure in rolling around on top of them, he was covered in green stinking slime and was very pleased with himself.
Nope, they definitely don't give a hoot about bacteria
However, like you, I suspect there is a reason for burying the dead, I'm more inclined to think they do it because the smell could attract other
packs or predators.
