Tanner is one of those dogs who likes to gather his toys around him and keep them with him wherever he goes. So usually you’ll see him on a bed, happily chewing on a toy while surrounded by another three or four toys … just in case. We joke he’s a toy hoarder. But this was the first time we’d seen him start taking toys up the stairs and depositing them along the way. I’m not even sure why he didn’t have a toy with him at the top — he might have been taking a break, in between dashing back down the steps to his toy stash in the living room and returning with another one.
