Things Marley brings home

We visited the neighbors today and Marley eyed a basketball. My neighbor Steve thought it was kinda funny how Marley was staring at it and gave it a kick.

Thats about all it took. I thought I had a bird dog but it turns out he's a ball dog. It took a few minutes to get his slobbery mouth around it, then after a few more kicks and throws the neighbor had a flattened ball. He donated it.

Some things Marley has brought home out of the forest or stolen i guess. Finding dog toys for him that he wont eat is challenging.
  • little plastic dinosaurs
  • golf balls
  • baseball mitts
  • tree stumps
  • trees
  • plastic garbage can lids
  • half of a ham
  • baseball bat
  • deer antlers, he chewed on these for about a year and knows what they are by name
  • basketballs
  • baseballs
  • a gross or two of green tennis balls
  • milk containers
  • tennis shoes
  • boots
  • gloves
  • birds, finally something he was breed for
  • CD cases
  • a few other dogs, not dead but just to play with
  • a live bullfrog
  • squirrels, dead
  • apples, plums, pears, peaches, cherries in or out of season
  • a deer leg
  • bird nest
  • a Gardener snake or two
  • the list goes on and on. I'm beginning to see a pattern here.

I'm trying to make some friends here as I just started this blog so why dont you tell me some things your dog has proudly brought home to you?
