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.
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.
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!
That is adorable! When I go out into the backyard to put food in the bird feeders my two male dogs like to be the first out the door to make sure the coast is clear and I’m protected from the… what… rabbits, squirrels or gophers? They take it very seriously though. They run out the door first and pose on the slope up to the bird feeders very alert and watchful, like “you just try to bug my mom and I’ll get a piece of you!” I love it! Dogs are awesome! (Well, we did have a coyote living in my next-door neighbor’s yard for a while, so maybe they have a point.)
The big girl dog doesn’t have the same work ethic and is sleeping her a$$ off in the bedroom and can’t be bothered.
