Dog Is ‘Very Proud’ Of His Impressive Stick Collection

When they're not saving our lives, dogs are finding other ways to make us love them unconditionally.

In the case of Bruce the golden retriever, that's amassing a very impressive stick collection and being obsessed with showing it off.

Bruce, who is the very best boy, is unable to play with sticks after a freak accident put him in hospital two years ago.

But, like those of us who are unable to drink tequila anymore after over-imbibing once or twice, he still loves being around them.

"Despite his injury, his love for sticks was not tarnished, but instead it has only grown into a beautiful collection," Icenhour said.

"Despite his injury, his love for sticks was not tarnished, but instead it has only grown into a beautiful collection," Icenhour said.

"He prides himself in collecting sticks of all shapes and sizes from our backyard and plants them right in front of our front door, checking on them daily when we go in and out of the house.

Leo said Bruce's obsession with collecting sticks came when he lost his favourite one in snow.

I am just imagining poor Brucey running around the snow-covered yard trying to find his precious stick and it's equally heartbreaking and hilarious.
