trash pick up {july}

So, I told you guys a while back that Sherman loves to pick up random items on our walks. Every single walk. It never fails. Well, I honestly didn't know how many of these items I had captured until I looked through my phone the other day. And I honestly didn't think anyone gave a crap about my dog's strange ways. But, I've actually had a couple of recent requests for Sherman the Scavenger updates.
Your wish is my command.
(You should probably think of a better wish next time)
Oh and I cheated a little bit. Some of these are from several months ago, but I didn't want you guys to forget about the orange juice container or the old shoe. Maybe I could start a little eBay business with all of Sherm's amazing finds ...
  1. bottle of whiskey
  2. water bottle + old ratty glove
  3. half gallon orange juice container
  4. a shoe
  5. either a shotgun shell or some orange PVC pipe ... your guess is as good as mine
  6. chocolate milk
  7. a tree branch the size of Texas (he went about a block with this thing; it was truly embarrassing)
  8. Gatorade bottle
  9. Easter egg (in July?)

Tah-Dah!
And most of this crap still resides in our backyard.

Until next month ... keep recycling.
Or better yet, drop your trash in the street and Sherm will come pick it up.

  1. haha your dog is so cute! I can only imagine watching him walk through the street with a tree coming out of his mouth. I had a dog do that once. Luckily no one was really around, so he didn't swat anyone or any cars with it. haha

  3. oh my goodness. this is so funny. so, does he bring them to you?! i know you don't touch that stuff (which probably makes him sad haha). we're teaching my new puppy to fetch, but so far we've only seen tennis balls and sticks. he could learn a thing or two from sherman!!

  6. I love the tree......as I think I have shared with you before Charis brings in a whole tree truck and then keeps it in her bed!!!

    She has recently however, discovered that she can uproot plants and they are so much easier to carry around!! I think I ote! tlk{post about everything I find in her bed on laundry day!!

    But Sherm sure loves his treasures.....and he is priceless!!

  7. Ha! Sounds like my little Rylie! She is ALWAYS trying to pick up random crap on the ground. The other day she found a dead bird but I wouldn't let her pick that one up.

  8. I love that Sherman is an EcoDog...kind of like K-State's EcoCat ... only without the big hair and costume, http://www.comicsalliance.com/2011/09/01/link-ink-movie-avengers-promo-art-hello-kitty-one-piece-ecokat/, (scroll down a bit).

  25. I love you and your dog. This is just too funny! It's sweet that he cares for the environment...or at least the area that y'all walk :)

  26. Harlow's a total trash advocate, as well. Yesterday at the beach he picked up a soggy cardboard beer carton, a Doritos bag, and a cigg butt! Aren't dogs the cutest?!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Haha what a good little helper he is! Keeping the streets clean for his neighbors!

    ReplyDelete
  28. What a good little environmental dog! If only humans would pick up their own damn trash!!!

    And I just got a little too excited when I saw my ad was two below Erin's. :) I'm a nerd.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Our dog does that too!!!! She will literally take your trash out of your hand - like if you are holding your napkin or something, she will gently try taking it out of your hand to take to the trash!! Hilarious!

    ReplyDelete
  30. Haha, this cracks me up! My Oliver does that too...I call him my little vacuum cleaner. He loves stealing tennis balls! I have to be careful though for chicken bones and I always wind up sticking my hand down his throat, gross.

  34. #7 just kills me.
    its my favorite one.
    but why only a block?
    he should walk with that tree branch everyday.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Haha, love Sherm! Sloan's got a history of picking up branches twice as long as her, and as thick as her head. Why on earth do they do that?!?

    ReplyDelete
  36. Haha! This is awesome! Too bad that whiskey bottle wasn't full, that would be a double score!

    ReplyDelete
  37. HAHHAHA OH Sherman. Can he come pick up the dog poop in our backyard? And does he like pulling weeds??

    ReplyDelete
  38. I think you should definitely sell it and market it as amazing rare finds from long ago.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  48. Your dog is like a dalmatian that rides on a firetruck... except he would be the chocolate lab tat rides on a garbage truck... and makes sure that anything that isn't bagged properly is picked up. You could put Sherman to work so that he can pay for a new sofa!

    ReplyDelete
  49. Oh my gosh. He is adorable!

    ReplyDelete
  50. Hey at least he is doing his part, one piece of trash at a time. :)
