Dogs love trees, especially as bathrooms. Other than the fire hydrant, no singular entity is favored more by pups for bathroom purposes.
Dogs can climb, some surprisingly well. While it is well known that cats are the dominate climbers, some dogs can hold their own against the feline nemesis. It’s always funny to stumble upon a dog chilling in a tree, happy and without a care in the world.
However, some dogs just can’t reach the branch they want…
Trees give us the branch, the dog’s oldest and favorite toy. It never ceases to amaze me how dogs will find a certain stick or branch and never let it out of their sight, even if said branch is much too big.
Dogs + Sticks = Fetch. Fetch is probably the all-time greatest human-dog interaction. Hooman throws it, dog brings it back. A simple concept that makes us smile and makes our canine pals extremely happy. Trees, we appreciate this.
Dogs help give back to trees. To be honest, the photo below was just too cool not to share. A dog pulling a wagon with a tree in it? Awesome.
Sometimes, however, the tree can be the enemy of the dog. Case in point…
Nevertheless, dogs and trees will be forever linked. So this Arbor Day, please take the time to thank a local tree.
