• My golden retriever Milo has a fascination with shoes. But not like typical dogs who chew them up. He likes to sneak into our utility room, pull out a shoe and then run upstairs and build a pile of them on our bed.


    Shoes! Who doesn’t love shoes? The way they make your legs look? The way they’re so pretty? The way they taste? Except Crocs. Whoever thought that rubber shoes would be yummy? They’re not.

    Okay. I guess you’re asking why Milo takes your shoes and lays them out on your bed. The easy answer is that Milo is choosing your wardrobe for the day. You know, the way that your mom used to pick out your clothes and lay them on the bed for you? That would be the easy answer.

    But I think Milo’s just weird.
