    Default Pine cones

    We live in a very nice neighbourhood... and there are lots of tall pine trees lining the streets and yards.
    Every night we go for a walk, maggie will find 'the perfect pine cone' and pick it up.
    she will proceed to take it all the way home. she drops it about 18 times...sometimes it bounces into the street (at which point if its safe either i or she picks it up)
    if i try to leave it behind..she pulls at me so she can get it.
    She carries it about 10-15 minutes.
    she LOVES pinecones.

    of course when we get home...after shes carried her treasure all the way home..i have to take it away from her.. its not good for her to eat...which she would given the chance.

    They should make doggy pine cones.. hah.. some kinda toy that resembles a pinecone..mabye smells like it...i dont know. something. i feel bad...its her TREASURE.
    Oliver and Max and Meeko man, i will meet you at the Rainbow bridge. I love you all. Miss you more then you'll ever know.
    wait for me...

    Welcome to the club maggie!

    So has there been a study to determine if it is breed specific?

    Shelter dogs aren't broken. They've simply experienced more life than other dogs. If they were human, we would call them wise. They would be the ones with tales to tell and stories to write. Do not pity a shelter dog. Adopt one.

    Jazz doesn't so much collect pine cones but she collects sticks, they have to be the correct size and shape, like a fat cigar! She's now knows that we won't let them in the house, so she leaves them at the front door and the collects them
    when we next take her out! She's a funny little soul!!!

    Oliver is in the "Pine Cone Club" also. Like Maggie he will search and search for the perfect cone. I will point out ones that I think are perfect, but unless they fit his criteria (whatever that is on that particular day) he keeps searching. Once he finds it, the walk is over and he turns around and starts heading home. I wish I had a picture. Chuck, that picture is so cute!
