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

For me they are the role model for being alive.

Stumpy can't wait to get to work!

Sometimes I feel the pressure

and I have to remind her to be patient


She carefully inspects every corner

And washes everything thoroughly

She'd eat it, if I would let her

No part of it goes unwashed

"Don't you think you should have some desert desert, now?"

Food flavored cardboard is a favorite around here too.

Stump, I am Most Impressed with your work ethic. If all humans took their works as seriously as we dogs do, imagine how much would get done!

You are such a good little worker, Stumpy. I think it's about time your boss gave you a raise!

Carey Brown Strombotne said...

Good workl, Stumpy! My Buddy would eat the entire cardboard box, not very good for digestion, btw.

Yummmm! I never think to give Riley my TV dinner trays...I bet she would love them! She likes to lick out yogurt containers that we've finished.

Good work, Stumpy, and your job is never done!!

Jan, Stumpy just loves fast food! or any kind of food!

Gizmo, Bart and Ruby, Stumpy does it ALL! and with style!

Mayzie, I'm glad you see that Stumpy is a shining example of excellent work ethics.

OP Pack, The work Stumpy does around here is priceless! I just can't put a value on it, so I pay her NOTHING!

Carey, I don't give her that opportunity

Wizz, Stumpy's always hoping for ice cream (but I gave it up)

Ruthie, I bet you'd be great at it, too!

Elyse! Shame on you! Stumpy cleans out anythng that won't cut her tongue or isn't straight vegetables.

bbes tribe, Poor Stumpy! We're passing on deserts, these days :(

Happy, Waggin' Tails, FUREVER!
Stumpy and me

Dessert in the desert...I should hope so! I like cleaning up the yogurt containers...mmmm...mm..good!

Wyatt said...

I like to do dishes too :)
How much is she paying you? Maybe I will come to work with you, I just get kibble!!

Heh heh heh. Stumpy with you and me in the kitchen, Mom could rip out that noisy dishwashing machine ;P

Waggin at ya,

Unknown said...

Just think if Bob Evans restaurant hired you....sausage gravy plates. Sorry I haven't been around much. Momma's been blog lazy. It's too bad u r not coming this summer but as along as u still come!!!

Lorenza, don't tell me with all that cake baking your mom does, you don't help her with the dishes?

Mango, it's unfortunate, but since Stumpy insists on eating on the floor, I have to rewash the dishes, when she is done.

Sophie, Stumpy gets a lot of practice washing yogurt containers!

Wyatt, I've always wanted an airdale. C'mon down! I promise to make it worth your while!

Roo, Stumpy's started a grass roots campaign banning the use of dishwashers.

Nordude, we're so sad it's looking like we won't be home this summer, we haven't given up hope entirely, though. We miss you TONS, but as long as you and your mom are having fun, we'll look forward to updates!

Happy, Waggin' Tails, FUREVER!

Kari in Alaska said...

yes, it was hard work after all!


Pat Wahler said...

Great job, Stumpy!


Deborah said...

What, no icecream!! LOL

Brenda's Arizona said...

If we were all so eager and thorough at our 'work'!

ForPetsSake said...

Ah yes- I know this employee well. I have my own version here with Arwen. Who needs a dishwasher?

Jed and Abby in MerryLand said...

Stumpy's willingness to do k.p. is not at all surprising, her being such an accommodating dog. That she doesn't rip up the cardboard is more surprising. We have Lean Cuisine here, but we've never heard of Lean Gourmet. Wonder if the sell it in the East? Are the trashy new neighbors still there? Do they have recycling in Dirtville?

Ruger said...

I am fery good at cleaning yoghurt containers and icecream containers myself. I wish the humans would give me their plates to clean too. I am sure I would do a fery good job of it.
