The Hunter-Gatherer

As blue heelers are wont to do, Lily collects unsavory effects like antlers, bones, carrion (usually small victims of the cats), hoof trimmings, corn cobs stolen from the cows, and various unidentifiable objects she's unearthed. Most are displayed in our yard. 

Lily carted off this rib from some hapless cow which has been lying in state for at least a decade. (Our late blue heeler, Jessie, was thrilled to discover the old carcass when we moved here nine years ago.)

If I was a paleontologist, I'd consider employing a pack of blue heelers to help at dig sites.
