SYDNEY, June 20 (UPI) -- An Australian man says his golden retriever has been bringing him presents in the past few days -- 12 loaves of bread and two packages of muffins.
Michael Shaw said he would like to know where the dog, Gillie, has been getting the baked goods, The Daily Telegraph of Sydney reported. Shaw lives in Theresa Park in a rural area southwest of Sydney and the nearest store is at least a 10-minute drive.
While Gillie did eat one package of muffins, she has simply brought the others back to the house, deposited them by the front steps and then lain there wagging her tail, Shaw said.
"She brings back things quite often, but normally it's an old gumboot or something like that," Shaw told the Telegraph on Wednesday, referring to rubber boots. "She has a bit of an insecurity problem so she always has things in her mouth. She has a big stuffed toy and will bark at neighbors while still holding it in her mouth but she's never brought back anything like this before."
None of Shaw's neighbors have complained of missing bread.
