Sprouting papaya seeds

I have cut opened so many papaya fruits, this is the first time that I came across sprouting seeds inside the papaya fruit.  When removing the seeds I found they are unusual, I took a closer look at them to ensure they are not maggots or worms from a spoiled papaya fruit. 
To make sure it is safe to eat, I brought the seeds to show to my better half, he told me that it is normal, nothing strange about it, perfectly safe to eat. 
 It came to my mind to plant papaya trees with these seeds but too bad, we haven't got the suitable "land" at our backyard, furthermore, we have got our dog, Lucky, he would destroy the seedlings before they can become a tree.

I usually serve papaya like this, serve cold.

  2. Sprouting papaya seeds - perfect to be planted. Could plant them in little pots first to get small plants to give friends who have suitable land to plant them.

  6. I have come across sprouting seeds inside the papaya fruits. I used to have dogs and my dogs loved to dig up whatever I have planted in my garden.

  7. Plant in a pot? But so hard if need to protect from dogs. My previous german shepherd destroyed TONS of plants in his time.
