We've all heard the phrase, "A boy and his dog." This is its corollary -- A dog and its bucket.
This is a video of a black lab named Charcoal. And about his deep, abiding love for his...well, there's no other way to describe it, for his bucket. Charcoal just absolutely loves his bucket. I mean, no, I mean he really loves his bucket. It's not just deep, heartfelt love, but something that fills his doggie paws and total being with pure joy. Perhaps almost more love than you can imagine anyone loving another. You may dearly love your spouse, but it's likely that your spouse loves you back as much. I don't imagine that the bucket loves Charcoal back half as much as Charcoal loves it. I'm not sure if the Beatles even had this much love in mind, when they wrote that it's all your need. But clearly for Charcoal, it is all he needs.
