DO YOU HAVE A VERY HELPFUL DOG who follows along as you feed and does her/his best to aid in your everyday tasks?! Uh-huh. Me, too.






Vivienne is almost a year old.  Responsibility comes with age, and this girl has stepped up in helping me when I do my AM/PM chores.  I’m sure yours does, too.

For example…

Every morning and every evening, I go out and feed.  Vivienne demands that she go along with me.  If I lock her in the house, she will howl.

Now, I’m sure she thinks she is doing me a huge service by tagging along during my chores, and I think I will just let her go on believing that because some of her deeds are indeed, good.

See the below pictorial.

Here I have a tree whose water emitter was broken, so I had decided to hand water it until I could get to Lowe’s to get a new emitter. Lo and Behold, little Vivey helped me by digging up the newly soft soil and creating a perfect hole for a big drink of water for the tree. Great job, Vivey!

Here, I am picking which bale to open. Viviey thinks this one is the best because there is a mouse or something underneath it and the sooner I get rid of it, the better. Correct again, Vivey.

Ever the athlete, Vivey climbs the stack, making sure I have the best bale chosen.

Does your dog gather up all the fly masks? Mine does. This is very, very handy. I no longer have to look for them. Hurrah! All flymasks end up on my front patio.

If I don’t notice a flymask in time, she will throw it against the back slider until I give her the “Atta Girl!” we all so desire after a full 15 minutes of ranch work!

 

SOMETIMES…Sometimes, Vivey will help me dig holes, chase squirrels/bunnies, kick up dust, find holes in the fences, clear poop through digestion,  inspect all watering troughs and general stick gathering… although I wouldn’t limit her skills to these few, those are just all I can remember at this moment.

Aren’t dogs great?!  I agree!
