Meet Dizzy, The Earth Friendly Dog

DizzyDizzy is trying to keep her carbon “pawprint” small.

This two-year-old mix is doing her part to save Mother Earth by recycling cans, plastic bottles, cardboard and pretty much anything that she can recycle in her family’s recycling shed.

She even collects plastic bottles on the beach and takes them to the nearest recycling bin.

Dizzy’s owner said, “You cannot drink a cola or beer from a can because she wants it. She also carries our recycling bags and even tries to carry bin liners, but they are a bit too large for her, so she ends up dragging them behind her. Sometimes we have to check our recycling bins to make sure she has not taken unopened mail out.”

This earth-friendly dog was adopted by her family from the St Francis Home for Animals. A spokeswoman for the organization said that they couldn’t take any credit for Dizzy’s recycling skills.

Keep it up, Dizzy!

    Our Greater Swiss loves to pick up plastic bottles on our walks. I always check them to make sure no idiot has spit tobacco in them or peed in them before I let Loki carry the bottles. I always carry a plastic bag or two with me on our walks. One is almost always used to stash the trash we find.

    Dizzy could be an angel in dog form — we could do well to learn from animals!
