It is quite clear which dog has the only Work Ethic around this 0.46 Acres of Suburbia, and that would be ME, Pennie.
These past several days, once again Daisy has been visiting while Daisy's Man and Oldest Lad dressed up like penguins and attended a wedding. Oldest Lad sent Mom a picture of him in his Penguin Tuxedo and I do hope that looking like that does not cause Oldest Man to attract another Other Woman. I have been just fine without having Another Other Woman, since Other Woman became Just Friends.
Anyhoodles, there is more work here than one Standard American Brown Dog can handle, especially with an extra house-guest, Daisy, and Queen Sophine never willing to get her paws dirty by doing any work. Mom and Dad went out last night, leaving Me, Pennie, in charge. I decided that the best place for me to survey my domain was to lay upon the Kitchen Table. Just as I had become comfortable, laying like a Standard American Brown Sphinx (but less hot and sandy) upon the Kitchen Table, Dad called because Mom remembered that she had forgotten to put the Meatloaf away.
Little Lad forced me to remove myself from my Sphinx-like pose upon the Kitchen Table.
Then this afternoon, after lunch, I immediately decided I had better clear the Kitchen Table, before any food spoiled. Wee Las had not consumed all of her Yogurt. Unlike Queen Sophine, who eats everything, and then just has vomiting or diarrhea with no regard to anybody; I DO have a pickier palate. I do NOT like Yogurt. However, I was determined to get the lunch dishes cleared. There I was, unhappily licking up berry-flavored yogurt, when Mom caught me, and forced me to remove myself from the kitchen table, again. She gave me no sympathy for the pitiful look of dismay that I had about my face, as I do NOT like the texture of Yogurt, nor the tendency of yogurt to cling to my whiskers. At least I was willing to help clear the lunch dishes, unlike the other lazy dogs in the house! Yet all I face is criticism.

Their criticism is due to jealousy of what good work you do.
