No Slacker Dogs allowed

Welcome Elly to the working world — no longer will that dog be allowed to lay around eating, sleeping, and playing. Nope, she’s got to work for her living. Yesterday, she passed her canine ambassador test with the Humane Society. So now she’s qualified to go out and work for a living. Yep; Bob plans on dragging her along on various Humane Society outreach activities. Her job is hard; she needs to be happy at greeting people while ignoring dogs and other animals. No jumping or mouthing allowed. But I think is a job the dog will love. After all, she loves nothing more than going walking in the city. She considers herself a person and says hello to everyone.

Of course, after eating half of the cake the other night, Bob thought she was going to fail her exam and become a deambassador. Bob was taking out the trash when Elly decided the cake sitting on the counter looked very tempting. I did not see the mess, but Kate evidently was able to salvage a piece from the ruins. Bob thought she was optimistic that piece did not include doggy saliva; but don’t tell Kate that. I was disappointed, it was a great cake that Bob had made from scratch. However, it turns out that stealing a cake does not disqualify you from passing personality exams and thus; Elly will still be obligated to work for a living.


Author: Heres to ART not Cockroaches

Welcome to my life. My life as a mom is changing as the kids grow up, leave home, and build their own lives. This gives me a chance to rebuild myself as an artist, develop a spiritual path, and most fun of all, start going out on dates with my husband. Come here the stories about the small things in life that can make one very happy. Dogs running on a beach, great breakfast dates, kids and their adventures, and my own adventures in this wacky life. I'll share some of my progress in learning art while juggling a full time job as an engineer. And best of all, it's a chance for me to practice writing stories while keeping in touch with my kids. I look forward to hearing from you. Comments, thoughts, and invitations to meet for coffee are all welcomed. Enjoy the stories.
