Introducing Bruce, a 4-year-old golden retriever who has evolved into an expert in collecting refined sticks.
Bruce, hailing from the United States, is so passionate about sticks that he has amassed a significant collection of them.
As long as he has been capable, “the best boy in the world” has been gathering sticks and has taken the internet by storm with images of him proudly standing next to his most cherished possessions.
On a day, a massive snowfall occurred in the vicinity of his home, leaving roughly 12 inches of snow on the ground, which prevented him from going outside.
At the time, he only had one stick, which was his utmost favorite.
One fateful evening, while there was still an abundance of snow on the ground, Bruce misplaced his stick in the field outside and, despite several days of fervent and relentless searching, was unable to locate it again.
He tried his best to locate it, and after the snow had thawed somewhat, he ultimately found his beloved stick.
From that moment on, he likely made a promise to himself to never again be without a stick, which prompted him to begin his current vast collection.
At present, his stick collection exceeds 50 sticks, but he does not play with any of them; they are solely for his collection.
Due to a mishap during a game of fetch, Bruce suffered a perforated esophagus, which almost proved fatal for him. As a result, he now only plays fetch with a rubber stick.
When asked about Bruce’s recent rise to fame, Leo expressed his pride in the pup and his unique stick-collecting hobby.
Leo said, “I’m not at all surprised that Bruce has become an internet sensation. He means the world to me and is truly one of a kind. He’s like the yin to my yang, the apple of my eye, and the wind beneath my wings.”
