Pooches: How the Pups Trick us into Not Doing Chores

The other day we had to have a talk with the pooches. We told them since we moved into a house there was a lot more work to do. 
And they needed to help out.
They were not impressed with our request. They told us since they moved into a house there was a lot more 'laying around' they needed to do.
We decided to start by having the pups help us rake the leaves.
I would rake.
And they would stand around and keep me company.
At first Miss M was upset. And she had to complain.
But then clever Miss M had a plan.
Much like Tom Sawyer, Miss M decided to trick me by being a bad worker.
She knew if she tried to eat the leaves:
And dance in the leaf piles
We wouldn't ask her to work any more. So she got to go back inside.
So we asked Mr B to come out and work.
But poor Mr. B proved to be too delicate.
He had a fear of being touched by leaves:
All of the leaves:
And he pleaded with us to let him go inside:
So we let them go inside. Miss M who was not a good worker. And Mr. B who was afraid of leaves.
And the pups got their chance to 'lay around' more often.
Anyone else have tricky pups that get out of work?

You guys are hilarious. We don't like leaves touching our feets either

Yes! Sometimes when I let Henry outside to use the restroom, he just stands at the backdoor and stares at me for a long time. So then I end up thinking, "Well, if you're not going to use the restroom, I might as well let you back inside" and he gets his wish - to be inside!

Such sweet, tricky pups!

CBR tricks us into giving up the perfect spot on the couch. He pretends to need water or a treat or playtime. Once we get up he takes the good spot and does the puppy face thing and acts like he has the finder-keepers right to it.

That was the most adorable post ever!!!!!! My pups always protest sheet changing and wrestle their fur back into and onto everything I am attempting to clean!

How cute that the pups help by keeping you company! We say our dogs are "helping" by being near as encouraging companions. Yet their real goal is to "sweet talk" us so they can settle in for a cozy nap.

Love this! I’ve resigned to letting Petey supervise my yard chores, while he tends to a Himalayan chew ;)
