I think dogs are the most amazing creatures; they give unconditional love.

For me they are the role model for being alive.

Fenway! You're FIRED!

Fenway is my only grand-dog. When he comes to visit, after a few short sessions of boot camp, to remind him of the rules, he is spoiled rotten throughout his stay.

I think he was a little surprised and perhaps dismayed when he was asked to help Stumpy with her chores.

There were two empty peanut butter jars that required immediate attention. Since Stumpy is a Union Dawg, She's only allowed to clean one peanut butter jar a day.

Fenway was willing to give bottle-washing a try

But failed, miserably.

Stumpy, being a dedicated employee, picked up his Fenway's slack (on over-time, of course).

"You know, Grandma, if you'd put that camera down, you could really help out here and I could keep my snout clean."

Dexter said...

Fenway Fail! Gosh, I thought those Burned Yeast Mountain dogs were supposed to be clever.

Fenway is thinking that it is way too much work for small pay...maybe Fenway needs a raise!

Fenway, thats sad dude. Mesa cleans them to the point or ripping them to shreds to make sure she gets every last drop!

Sometimes, you just have to really get into your work.

Well Stumpy, more for you huh? ;) Maybe Fenway prefers a little jam with his peanut butter eh ;)

Waggin at ya,

Cyndi and Stumpy said...

Jan, I consider it my responsibility to teach Fenway a goood work ethic, iin between spoiling him!

Rottrover, that's as good an excuse as any, I suppose!

Mango, Fenway is an Australian Shepherd. Alf is a BMD. Fenway is VERY clever when it suits his purposes!

OP Pack, No spoon fed dogs allowed, here!

Wyatt, A raise! In this economy?

Khyra, Stumpy loves that I eat so much peanut butter!

Kari, It's beyond sad! It's PATHETIC!

TTH, Cleaning the peanut butter jars definately requires focus.

Roo, I draw the line at making the jars require more work!

Tucker said...

Cyndi and Stumpy said...

Sophie, maybe with a little more practice, huh?

Tucker, it's a favorite around here!

Pedro said...

Unions have their rules! Good to get OT for all your hard work :P


Cyndi and Stumpy said...

Pedro, I respect Stumpy's union alliance!

ForPetsSake said...

Overtime - BAH!! Union or not - with that much PB involved, the girls would be in!
