Jack our puppy – he's 7 months, so I suppose he's still a puppy – has become a real bowerbird. He collects all manner of things from around the house and puts them in his bed or on his mat. Shoes, discarded socks, sticks, twigs, bits of plastic, paper, leaves, pegs – they all become part of his collection. If I'm ever looking for my shoes I know exactly where to find them!
This morning he'd feathered his nest with his handknitted blanket, one of my shoes, two of my socks and the head of a dustpan brush. This photo was taken as his little eyes were about to close for a little nap.
He's so cute I just want to give him a cuddle.
