This is the story of four country pups named Pam, Claire, Douglas, and Josie.
They live outside of Lexington, Kentucky running wild and free in that state of Bluegrass, mint juleps, fried chicken, and bourbon. Pam, Claire, Douglas, and Josie are the kind of pups that like to hunt for doggo treasure. Their dad documents all of the things that they bring home– these are a few of his entries.
Nov. 19, 2010 – Today’s find: Chewed-up Mello-Yello bottle, Glass Mason Jar and a work boot of some kind.
Nov. 20, 2010 – Today’s find: V-neck t-shirt, Michelob beer bottle, piece of carpet and a plastic bottle.
Nov. 21, 2010 – Today’s find: Decorative pillow, a work glove, practice golf ball and a gray sock. Side note – pillow was destroyed and batting exploded in backyard.
Nov. 24, 2010 – Today’s find: half eaten metal can. Slim pickins’ today.
Dec. 7, 2010 – Today’s find: Not entirely sure. Some plastic jug. The label was consumed.
Dec. 9, 2010 – Today’s find: Bud
Dec. 18, 2010 – Today’s find: Winter boot (singular). Somewhere there’s a guy who swore he had two boots there last night.
Dec. 22, 2010 – Today’s find: one slightly chewed glove, one slightly chewed dog food bowl (not ours).
Dec. 23, 2010 – Today’s find: a plastic holiday jug.
Dec. 24, 2010 – Today’s find: This one gets the WTF award. I truly have no idea.
Dec 28, 2010 – Today’s find: the other work boot and some laundry detergent. They’re nothing if not thorough.
Dec 31, 2010 – Today’s find: Tha Mutha Load. This looks more like a crime scene from Dexter. 1 wooden block, heavy. 1 2liter bottle slightly chewed. 1 chewed on bottle of moisturizer. 1 gallon jug. 1 plastic blue ring. 1 plastic chewed ‘thing’. 1 Car washing mit and some kind of fabric… hopefully not still attached to a person when extracted.
Jan. 18, 2011 – Today’s find: one partial wooden crate, one less-than-lively mole, one half-eaten tomato, one metal bowl, a reddish ball, one large metal pot with accompanying bullet hole, and one partially noshed on rubber hose. A rewarding night it seems.
Jan. 29, 2011 – Today’s find: purple knit glove, part of a gray glove, one stuffed spotted dog, metal can and a chewed on plunger.
Jan. 30, 2011 – Today’s find: one NCAA deflated rubber basketball, one blue basketball, NERF dart, plastic cup and half eaten work boot insole. Have a funny feeling one mans trash is becoming this mans trash.
Feb. 12, 2011 – Today’s find: one slightly mauled leather belt sans buckle, one shredded phonebook, plastic soda bottle, and the bottom half pant leg to a jogging suit. Fragments of runner undiscovered.
Feb. 13, 2011 – Today’s find: (another) work boot, a 5-pt deer antler, and the rest of yesterday’s jogging pants… Still no jogger sighted.
Mar. 17, 2011 – Today’s find: one Chewdasarus toy, one toy garden tool, one bottom to a larger pot and part of a Dewalt work glove. Modest pickings today.
Mar. 26, 2011- Today’s find: a brown fitted sheet, one shoe, and a dog toy bone. Not ours because we don’t see the need to purchase chew toys for them. Call me crazy.
Oct. 16, 2011- After a slight hiatus the dogs are back at it. Today’s find: a partially mangled shoe; a mason jar with dirt clump; a studded toy and we’ll just leave it at that; and one metal dog bowl… Not theirs.
Apr. 11, 2012- Big Stuffed Fish – I don’t even know where to begin with this one.
