A labrador retriever named Tabbi living in England in the small town of Torvain became famous for his addiction to plastic bottles. The dog got into the Guinness Book of Records: for 6 years the Labrador collected more than 26,000 plastic bottles.
Every day Labrador mistress Sandra Gilmore goes for a walk with him, where the dog collects 3-4 plastic bottles at a time. Labrador is on a walk, begins to inspect the area, look under the benches, bushes, in search of their prey. Unlike other dogs that bring a ball or stick to their owners, Tabbi considered it necessary to bring only plastic bottles. The hostess then carried these bottles for recycling. The dog began to show heightened interest in plastic containers at puppyhood. According to the hostess of Labrador – Tabbi attracts precisely the sound of the crunch of the bottle, which is heard when it is crushed. In the Guinness Book of Records, Tabbi is presented in the category “Dog that has recycled the largest number of plastic bottles”.
The administration of the city of Torvain, where the Labrador lives, presented him with a special award and called him a dog with “green” powers. The dog became a local superstar. He began to fill up with all sorts of gifts. Labrador’s hostess is very proud of him, because he sets a good example in favor of protecting the environment from pollution.
