Today we are posing an open question on one of our habits. We think our question will also resonate with others (we hope). One of the things we like to do is collect dog figurines and trinkets. When we go on a trip or are out browsing, if we like a piece we see then we purchase it (the humans actually buy it for us but we pay them back in treats later). Throughout the years we have developed quite a collection (FYI-The pictures in this post only show a sampling of our collection). The humans have even designated a shelf for our pieces so we can admire them while lounging in the living room.
Last night, we were on the couch looking at our shelf full of trinkets and wondered if we had crossed the line?
We like to consider ourselves collectors but maybe we have becomes dog trinket hoarders?
When do you cross the line from collector to hoarder? Do we have to be sleeping in beds filled with dog figurines for it to be a sign we have gone too far? Or is it normal to have a vast collection of things you like?
Thanks in advance for your feedback.
