Our whiny dog

We gave our dogs a couple of rawhide bones for Christmas. The girl dog (chow/ lab mix supposedly) has gnawed it down to a nub and carries it around in her mouth room to room crying and whining, basically, pacing our small house.

I think she wants to carry it outside possibly, but that is out of the question (it is really rainy). She has also done this in the past with a squeaky sandwich toy (Sammich). In that case we thought she thought it was her puppy because she would lay it between her paws and lick it and when it squeaked she would talk back to it and also she would take it from room to room (and to bed at night). This new rawhide couldn't have the same attachment. Right now, she has started chewing on it again. She has never had a litter and I am not sure if she had ever gone into heat before being spayed. Any idea what she it doing??? Any similar stories?
