A few months ago, I met my human grandma for the first time. She spent the weekend at our house and I was nervous. So nervous I would growl and bark, which didn't make my parents or the cats very happy. I think one of the reasons was that grandma walks kinda slow so I thought she was some kind of prowler or something that wanted to steal my toys.
Anyway, I guess I didn't scare her away for good because she came back again a few weeks ago to visit for a few days and this time I was just fine! No more growling and barking! Everybody was happy.
Do you remember my kiddie friends, Breana and Jacob, my neighbors who played with me alot when I was a puppy? Anyway, Breana really wants a cell phone because all of her friends have one, so her parents told her she needed to earn some money to buy one.
Yesterday we received a flyer on our door with the header "Breana's All Purpose Service". It said she would do yard work, dog walking and babysitting after she gets CPR training.
Well, my parents feel I am too big for her to walk, but wanted to help her out by paying her to do some clean-up work in the backyard. So, she was thrilled when we called her this morning to come over this afternoon. It was almost 100 degrees out today but we get shade in our backyard in the afternoons.
Breana worked for about an hour and did a great job! And guess how much money she asked for? Two dollars! Well, we weren't going to give her two dollars, especially in this heat. Plus, I got all kinds of attention from her too, so we gave her ten dollars. She looked like she couldn't accept that amount of money but we told her we'd have her come back to help clean cat litter boxes, so she said she would do that! We'll still pay her again when she does, but we made a young girl very happy today.
Hope you're all staying cool!
$10 is a great deal, mommy spent several hours today doing the poop scoop, that is hard work. Mommy did not get paid for it. It was the first time the yard was dry enough to walk into the yard to attempt it. Mommy also had lots of broken branches from several storms this week. We tried to help her, but she did not want our help.
Dat's cool dat Breana is earning money!
Huey, I can't picture you growling and barking at anyone because in my mind you are one of the sweetest and happy pups I know.
Yeah, Coco Wose r wite!! Huey? Barkin' an' gwowlin'? Whut da woof?? :D
Yay fur helpin' Bweana! Hur a gwate lil' kid!
Abbie, when Breana came over she was going to pick up my poop for free, but there was no poop to pick up cuz' we have a small yard so it gets picked up right away. Sounds like your Mommy worked hard in the yard!
Thanks, Whitley, we may be the one helping her out the most towards her goal.
Coco Rose and Zaidie, I know, I was just scared!
Breana's gonna have that cell phone in no time!
