My mom’s cattle dog has a hoarding problem, when humans are away he just goes around grabbing any clothes/shoes/any fabric item he can find and piling them around his favorite spot in the kitchen where he then curls up with his head resting on his treasure quietly guarding it.
Well, when you take anything he just looks really sad and I hate doing it, but he always ends up taking my favorite jacket at night and I don’t want it to get hairy. So we’ve come to a solution where every night I go take the jacket and give him the shirt I was wearing that day and he happily takes it and snuggles up with it. However today I wanted my sweater that I wore because it’s super soft but he happened to have it AND my jacket so I went to my room to get a random stuffed animal to give to him- he loves it so much. He’s sitting there nuzzling his nose into it and grooming it, I guess it’s extra special because he’s never gotten a non-clothe item in exchange. It’s super cute :)
