Pooches: Dog Chores
Mr. B loves helping out and bringing his backpack on family walks. He uses his backpack to bring home his own dog groceries from the dog store as well as carrying our groceries: bread from the bakery, vegetables from the Farmer's Markets, and meat from the butcher shop. When he carries the backpack he even walks proudly knowing he has a job to do.
Beyond our pooches helping out around the house, RED , who has the most adorable dog Zeus, had a good question about how most people split up dog duties in the household.
At our place, since we don't have a yard, our dogs need 2 walks and one nightly bathroom break a day. Just based on our work schedules, I take the morning shift--which I prefer because I go early enough to miss the dog-walking rush--and E takes the evening walk. E will also take the dogs down before bedtime and I will wipe their feet. We are also lucky enough to have an amazing dog-walker to help us out when we can't make it home.
