Dogs love sticks

Rafi loved to chew sticks and he preferred to chew his sticks inside the house.  With doors closed his only option of bringing his stick into the house was through the dog door but he could not get through with the stick held in the typical way.  He worked it out, the stick had to come in long ways.  Unfortunately for Rafi, stick chewing was an outdoor activity and he and his stick went back outside.  Double unfortunate was the learning process had to start again the next time he wanted to bring in the stick as he had forgotten the technique from the day before.

Molly had the biggest stick. She found it down by the river and wanted to bring it home.  I told her she could bring it if she carried it.  She carried it all the way home, carefully negotiating the bollards at start of river track and not stopping once to rest.  When we got back to the house (about 800m) she dropped the stick at the bottom of the driveway and had no further interest .
