A persistent pooch sped round carrying a stick almost four times its length.

When Joshua Bevan took his dog Harlow for a walk, he probably didn’t expect him to return with such a large toy.

The six-year-old Labrador mix proudly appeared from the bushes in Chasewater Country Park, Staffs, carrying what can only be described as a branch.

Joshua said: “The stick must have been about 10ft long.

“He was running but he was full speed.

“It went on for about 30 minutes before we had to leave it.”
