My dog Kirby is a rescue dog. We know he's a Border Collie-Spaniel mix, with a bit of something thrown in just to give him short legs. He has a busy Border Collie brain, so he has piles of stuffed toys to keep him occupied. He puts them in the basket and takes them out, moves them from place to place and rearranges them. All pretty typical BC behavior. But after watching him for nine years, I not absolutely convinced that he purposely sorts his toys. Sometimes he'll have all the ducks in one place, the bunnies in another, etc. Other times each kind of toy will be in a separate line. One day we came home and his hippo was in the middle of the room, with his bunnies arranged in a rough circle around it, then his ducks in a larger circle around that.
We always say if Kirby had thumbs, the world would be a very different place.
