Oliver loves, and I mean LOVES to be outside! His favorite place in the yard is in front of the swing, underneath the shade tree in the backyard. I have caught him sitting IN the swing, swinging.
Yesterday, though, I discovered that Ollie is somewhat of a hoarder. He has gathered all these things in his spot near the swing. A dog never knows when he might want to chew on a stick. Or cardboard. Or a toy. I don't think there is therapy for Golden Retrievers who hoard? Or was he retrieving all these things??? I also didn't know he drank Coca Cola. Which would explain a LOT.
The upside to Ollie loving the outdoors is, it calms him down. After the initial "I-must-run-around-the-couch-a-bunch-of-times-" energy outburst when he comes back inside, he settles down quite nicely. Last night, he grabbed Maggie's blankie and crashed on the couch. Maggie was not amused. That's HER spot.
