Spud the dog is partial to buckets (and watering cans) he considers them a high value toy.
Black flower buckets have just the right amount of ‘flex’ to put up a good, if playful fight. Not only that he can charge around with them on his head totally oblivious to what he might crash into, which is to Spuds reckoning an added bonus (he crashes into a lot of things, even when he can see where he’s going, spatial awareness isn’t his strongest point.)
Flower buckets are cheap and in plentiful supply, and last weeks, not matter how manically a dog might chew at it.
Our first dog, Badger also had a passion for flower buckets, after he died a neighbour commented how summer mornings just weren’t the same with out the distant sound of a plastic bucket ricocheting around our yard.
