On Wednesday, our post was our blind girl Hiker in her crate.
In her crate with her "things".
If you look closely you will see three slippers, a pair of shoes, a small stuffie and a nylon bone.
Me: "Hiker, where is my shoe/sock/slipper?"
Hiker: "I dunno, I haven't seen it." (BOL!)
As I am sure we've mentioned previously, this is nothing new. It apparently is common for dogs that are handicapped/special needs to develop some obsessive type behaviours. Hiker has done this since she was adopted and never gets upset when all of "her things" are removed. She will calmly wander the house and gather up other things and stuff them in her crate. She has never damaged anything, she just...well...hoards them.
Do you think maybe we need an intervention? (somebody said there is a television show...)
Our former veterinarian (from a few years ago before we moved across country) said, "Of course your dogs have issues. They live with you." (We miss Dr. R)
