There is very little mathematical content to this story of a math professor attempting to atone for having abandoned a pet dog. He is described (in the English translation) as having a "cold, mathematical head". He seems to be trying to do some sort of algebraic substitution of a dead dog he has found for the one he left. At first, he wants to bury the dead dog in the exact center of a field, but later decides to simply pick a spot randomly. (The description in each case suggests the link to mathematics is quite intentional.)
