I am once again being called upon to perform more tasks, more labor, to grind my poor paws to the bone.
I am officially a "canine non grata" at Oldest Lad's new apartment. Mom and I have not visited it yet, so it is not known whether it shall be an upgrade to "The Structure." "The Structure" earned it's name because to call it a "house" was an insult to houses everywhere.
Purportedly, The Apartment is better than "The Structure," but already I am being called on as Maintenance Dog Pennie! However, I can not visit The Apartment for Dogs are not welcome. Housemate Dog Daisy IS living there, but Housemate Dog Daisy's Man has paid a Dog Deposit. I am uncertain if I can sneak in for short visits. Oldest Lad was forced to give up being a Foster Parent to Dogs because it is one thing to have an adult, well-mannered Daisy-Dog living in an Apartment where clearly the Landlord is not thrilled with dogs; it is another to have a Foster who might have behavioral issues.
Anyhoodles, A MOUSE has been discovered in the apartment. One would assume that Daisy could get off one of the two couches, three beds, or the recliner chair and hunt down this mouse. But no, after living with University Students for an entire year, Daisy sleeps until noon, watches NetFlix, and watches College Sports. I do believe she studies in the middle of the night, like the rest. I am not sure if she drinks beer, but I would not be surprised.
Oldest Lad is in urgent need for ME, Pennie, to head down to University and be Maintenance Dog Pennie, Huntress Pennie, and find the Mouse, which is no doubt actually MICE, as a Mouse seldom lives a solitary existence.
Daisy Dog is a beautiful all black dog. I am a Standard American Brown Dog. If Oldest Lad wishes me to hunt down his mice, he may have some explaining to do if the Landlord drives by. In the meantime, how much work can one Pennie Dog do? I have my paws full just trying to make Middle Lad do his homework.

You could roll in soot like the dogs in "101 Dalmations" and turn yourself black. The dog discriminating landlord would be none the wiser...
