Dogs are our best friends and vice versa, but guess the other bestie dogs just can't do without? Fetching sticks of course! Thankfully a resident of Kaiapoi, New Zealand, figured that out and when he noticed a lack of good sticks in his local park, he decided to do something about it. 59-year-old Andrew Taylor then came up with the idea of creating a "Stick Library" for all the puppies in his area who often visits a local park to play. So, the idea occurred to him while chopping off the excess branches from some trees in his yard. Instead of throwing them away, he thought about ways to put it to good uses.
After Noticing Lack of Good Sticks At Park, Dad Turns Old Tree Branches into ‘Stick Library’ for Neighborhood Dogs https://t.co/FOlQC3ejDK— Lyn Wright (@PerfectMisty) 20 December 2019
Due to his genuine love for dogs, Taylor couldn't help but think about it could benefit his dear friends. Thus, the idea was born. Of course, the father had to put it in quite an effort to make this happen. After hacking off the excess branches, Taylor cut them up into convenient-sized pieces and put them into a hand-crafted box which had the instructions, "Stick Library: Please Return" written on it. Following the completion of this project, he took it to the park to let other animals and their owners play with it. But there was something else, he had in mind.

Taylor alongside his daughter hosted a small neighborhood inauguration party for the Stick Library, a perfect way to let everyone know about the latest games available in the park. The gathering was attended by more than 50 dogs and their owners, reports Good News Network. All of them enjoyed a nice game of fetch with those sticks. Although the idea sounds easy, it's not something that we have in every park.
Revealing how others reacted to this simple yet excellent idea, Tayla Reece, Taylor’s daughter, said, "As people started to arrive, there was a disbelief of how simple the idea was, but it’s one of those ideas no one had thought of. All the dog owners appreciate it, as they all have experienced the ‘good stick search’, which isn’t always fruitful. It’s an idea that just makes sense to them." If you're someone whose wondering how to make your pooch's day make sure to take some inspiration from this.
