Good Help Is Hard To Find

With ten dogs around I get lots of help during the day, whether I want it or not.

Noah sorts the dirty laundry. This sometimes results in socks being stolen.


Samba is a great help in putting the clean clothes away. She keeps them from escaping till I can put them where they belong.


Sky is my load the dishwasher buddy. He likes to lick the dirty plates. It took a while to teach him that the clean plates don't require licking. A couple times a week he'll add a toy, usually his ball to the load.


Now, what shall we make for dinner? We have a second refrigerator in the garage where I keep the yogurt. Some of the girls have learned to open it to check on supplies.They haven't helped themselves yet.

So with all this help, why is my house a mess?

Sissy is still struggling with NOT licking clean dishes. I've noticed since the arrival of the new dishwasher, she's catching on. I wonder if the Knight was right and the old one really did a rotten job?

I guess sometimes many hands don't always make for light work!
What adorable little helpers you have. One thing i know for sure you are never lonely in your house!

Wilbur used to be terrible about taking socks but not so much anymore. Charlotte still keeps the laundry from escaping and they both help with the dishes. Aren't pups so funny. Gotta love them. If you figure out how to get them to clean please let us all know. :)

I love that Sky adds a toy to the dishwasher - that's hilarious!

Do they also close the door? :)

my "help" also licks dishes, supervises cleaning of the litter boxes and makes sure the vaccuum does not get out of control.

I love that the dogs help you around the house. I remember once Dudley tried to air out the laundry by taking it all outside! g

Hi Sue, how nice of you to pop by my blog thanks. I can see you are a big dog lover thats great, I love the pictures showing how much they like to help you have a great blog. Do you like my bonnie she was a rescue dog she was found tied to a post in the middle of Dec in the cold, and all her back was covered in sores and bites when the RSPCA found her. She is great company and I love her. best wishes Julie.C
