Portuguese Water Dogs are working dogs. They used to work on the fishing boats in Portugal. The dog was considered an important member of the crew.
During the winter when the boats didn't go out to sea, the dogs protected the flocks of sheep.
Noah needed a job. He isn't into playing with toys or chasing the ball. He needed to be busy, but all the jobs around here were filled.
It's an important job because if dog food lays around on the garage floor, it's an invitation to mice to come in and make themselves at home. We don't want that. As careful as I try to be, a piece or two usually hits the floor and Noah is on them.
At dinner we repeat the process.
