Fun, isn't it? :-) My (past) dachshund would always take three bits of kibble (not two, not four), set them on the floor, then eat them one by one then go back to the bowl and do it all over again (and again, and again).
What does he/she do if the footstool is removed? It doesn't sound like a big deal - just a cute little quirk - but I would wonder what would happen if he was sick one day and couldn't get on the stool.
Enjoy these cute little things - you will miss them one day.
Nope, not a "little dog thing" at all. I have no idea what goes through their heads, but I've seen dogs of all sizes do the same thing. At least they're neat about it. I've never had so much as a loose piece of kibble left on the floor. LOL!
