No Way!

Hi Everybuddy -

I saw something very disturbing that I have to share. Take a look at this:

Man teaches dog to take out trashMan teaches dog to take out trash

This cannot mean anything good for us! Somebuddy needs to tell this poor soul that he can't be this helpful! It sets a dangerous precedence for the rest of us! I knew once Mom caught a glimpse of it she would get ideas. Look what was out on the back patio today. I suspect she had a training session in mind:

"Yep - We're gonna hear the 'working dog' speech"

"Forget it Mom! Trash is for tasting - not chores"

"Harrooorooo! Silly Mom - where does she get these ideas?"

"Nice try but I think we'll pass"

I think we're going to have to consider limiting her internet time. She's getting far too many ideas. Woo.

Well, this doesn't surprise me at all, since I constantly hear the human woman yelling at the human man to take out the garbage, because he can't seem to grasp that if its full, it needs to go out. Human men appear to be very lazy, so taking over the world from them will be easy, its the human women we have to really put up a fight with.

Nope, that'll never go on in this house! We pick out trash, we do not take it out! Humans are very silly at times.....

Hi, Echo!
Sure Ronin is good! But, like you... I'll pass!
My mom says that I have to work for my treats but... not in that way!
Kisses and hugs

I took the trash out a couple of times and got in "trouble" (whatever that means). Well, not exactly OUT... more like into the living room. I spread it out on the carpet to sort -- you know, to see if they were recycling and all. The next thing I knew, we got one of those $200 trash cans Meeshka's mom recommended. Woo. The Ft. Knox of trash cans.

Luckily, I can't be trusted with a trash can plus to get to the dumpster, I'd have to jump a tall fence. I'm still not letting Mom see that picture in case she gets any ideas of my doing any other shores though.

Well, I don't akhtually do the womanual labour BUT every Monday am, my mom changes the khompakhtor bag and I akhkhompany her to the street with it -

Sometimes I help with the recykhle khontainer too (usually filled with her AGJ bottles) -

Woo all look darned khute in your pikhs!


One of the pack said...

Let's get it straight what working dog means. Here's a few humble examples:
1. Pediatrician: licking children's injuries.
2. Psychiatrist: Listening without judging our humans
3. Coach: Getting the humans off their rear ends and walking
4. Mediator: Mediating disputes among mammals
5. Food taster
6. Landscape design.

Nope. No waste disposal here.

Holly said...

Does she not realize you are Sibes, and Sibes don't do trash, unless it's tearing through it, looking for tasty things?


Peanut said...

That is not right. He should be eating that trash not carrying it around

Gus and Louie said...

yes we see no fun in taking out the trash. What were those people thinking.. No balls involved!!!

Me agree with what "one of the pack" said....we do all of them things..NOT take out the trash. The Mommy won't let me anywhere near thd garbage can.

I know it's a little late but me think SKY is so mean to Canyon & that SKY should be ashamed of themself. Canyon can come & share the Mommy's bed with me...we gots plenty of room.

Love all of you even that bad bou Sky...Mona

I think that dog is putting a big one over on his humans: he's just lulling them into complacency while he stockpiles all those trashbags somewhere. Then it's going to be one, huge festering buffet!

You guys need to play dumb like we do so the humans think you can't handle simple chores. First taking out the trash, then what? Best to nip it in the bud right now.

Just because you're a working dog doesn't mean that you're parents have the right to not be working humans! Trash and picking up dog poop are definitely tasks for humans!
