Spaniel curates stick collection

Abigail Morrison, a four-year-old Spaniel, has revealed the hitherto secret location of a stick collection she has been curating for several weeks.

Abigail has been collecting the sticks from a number of locations, including her own garden, three parks that she frequents, and daily trips to the beach.

She told The Lab Report: “I make my selection based on a number of strict criteria, including availability and portability. I transport them in my mouth, then as soon as I get home they are placed in a secure location.”

Abigail, who is based in Brighton, this week revealed that location – a gap in the hedge in her back garden.

She said discerning viewers are welcome to visit the spot, but requested that there be no flash photography or removal of sticks.
