Mom tried to make me feel better. She said I was only 2 and still a little too rambunctious to do good works in a public setting. After all most people don't appreciate a big dog that gets in their face and starts slurping hard enough to lick off some skin (although I met a nice lady at the V-E-T the other day who loved my smooches).
She also pointed out how valuable my stick patrol activities are in our yard. We have lots and lots of trees and those sticks are raining down every time the wind blows a least little bit. I also get the sticks out of the pond.
One other job I would really love (but mom and dad won't let me) is cleaning out the litter box. They keep a gate that blocks me out of the bathroom where the litter box is. The other day dad had it up just a little too high and he caught me slithered underneath it. I could get half my body in there and that was enough the reach the box and do some selective scooping. Unfortunately, extracting myself from that position knocked the gate down so I was caught. Sadly dad did not have his camera handy to capture this particular exploit. He was probably laughing too hard to focus anyway. Maybe I can hire myself out for the litter box job. I know humans hate that work!
Finally, mom says she thinks making people who read my blog laugh or even just smile is a good job to have. I hope I do that!
I am hoping my other pals will share their second jobs on this Anipal Photo Hunt. Just click the button below for information on how to join in!
