Jobs For The Puppies
My new blogger friend Carmellia at Free Falling sent me the above picture and email link. She and I must have some kind of psychic link, because I had just prized myself up from the floor after looking under the bed for my laptop air card (don't ask), I told the puppy girls, yawl really could help out around here. Yawl could have some jobs around here to help Mommy out. Then I opened up my email and she had sent me the above link, which really got me to thinking.... These are the things that they could do.
Keep up with where I put my glasses.
Keep up with the remotes for the TV/Ceiling fan/DVR.
Keep up with where I put my name badge/car keys/cellphone--so I wouldn't be running around in the morning trying to find them.
Pick up their daddy's socks/underwear when he leaves them in the bathroom floor. I don't expect them to put them in the laundry basket, but they could drag them next to it.
Since they immediately check out anything that hits the floor, they could put any colors that the grands leave on the floor over in the basket with the other colors/coloring books.
They already bark like crazy when someone comes to the door, so maybe they could use different barks for different people, David--1bark, the grands--2 barks, stranger--bark like crazy...which is what they do with everybody.
Clean out from under the bed--right now there is a rubber fishing worm, a LED light, a hair clip, 2 fabric softener sheets and of course a chew chew all under there.
I certainly don't expect them to do my grocery shopping like the dogs in the picture...
I wouldn't trade all the love that they give me for anything, it is more than enough for me.
