I’m a packrat, I’m aware of it. I have possessions of all sorts stashed away all over the house. Sometimes I don’t even use the things I have stashed away, I just collect the items and let them collect dust. You know, in case I ever need them.

This is the scene I find on a regular basis on mornings when the Puppy has spent the night free from his crate:
Cooper's "possession hoarde"Over the course of the night Cooper acquired several of his toys, lots of the cats’ toys (which he picked out of the kittie’ toy basket), both my flip flops, a pair of Adam’s boxers and a empty pie crust box. He even moved his food dish to be closer to his “nest”. He wasn’t chewing on them, he just had a collection going.

I looked at this and shook my head. Eight short hours before his nest was neatly arranged with no toys or items in sight. My puppy was a hoarder, a pack rat.

So I shook my head and headed to the kitchen and went to get out some coffee.

My Coffee HoardAt least we wont be running out of coffee any time soon.



  1. Oh dear lord that’s a lot of coffee. I am the total opposite. I can’t stand clutter so I go on fits where I start throwing away everything (or donating it to Goodwill). I’m so bad that I throw out his stuff. If it is left sitting around long enough, no matter what it is, it is getting thrown out.

    • I’m jealous, I wish I had that quality. On occasion I do get into throw out modes, then something distracts me and I go off doing something else.
