Doin’ Chores

Hi Everyone………….!

Today is sheet-changing day ’round my house and of course like all self-respecting dogs and cats I love to HELP my Mom with that little chore.  Oh sure…….she tries to sneak around up in her bedroom and do it all by herself but I know she needs me – so when I hear her pulling those sheets off, I’m THERE.

Whew – now that’s done – what’s next Mom?    I know – I can check to make sure things are safe outside before we go out for a walk!

All clear out front!

All clear on the side of the house.......

All clear out back!.

See Mom? I’m helping……now what else do we need to do INSIDE before we can go OUTSIDE?  

Hanging out in the living room waiting for breakfast to be "announced" !

Oh yeah…..eat my breakfast! How could I forget THAT chore????

I’m good to go now Mom….!

Mom and me – we make a great team……………..I helped out and now we’re all set to go outside and watch the sun come up……….!   Happy Thursday everybody!

HAPPY THURSDAY!

Mom’s Little Helper, Sammy !

    • Oh Sparkle I can’t blame you for that…..housekeeping people are nowhere NEAR as much fun as our humans are when it comes to helping. Too bad. Did you try the sad eye thing? Probably doesn’t work on the housekeeping people though does it?!

    • Hi Mollie! I thought beds were FOR bouncing on – now true, you probably weigh a bit more than I do and make more of an impression bouncing on a bed than I do, BUT sometimes Mom picks me up and drops me a couple of feet above the bed onto the bed and I quite like that! Almost like bouncing – it’s sort of a game we play on sheet-changing day!

    • Well Cupcake it sounds like you are a bit busy cuddling, snuggling, snoring and hogging before the sun comes up too! Morning routines are fun – especially when breakfast is served! Have a super day little girl.

    • Hi Sundae! Yes I did see that you have a new little “long distance” baby sister!! Gypsy is absolutely adorable and I’m hoping (so is my Mom) that one of these days your Mom decides the two of you need to meet….I know you’d be a great big sister for her……Yep – me and Mom are up every morning together at 4:30 and Dad continues to snore away for another hour or so then joins us. We’re early birds (DID SOMEONE SAY BIRD?????!!!!!).

  3. You are a great little helper. I can’t help with the bed cuz I can’t jump up there. I try… but can’t make it up. I can jump up on the couch (when she is not look’n) but the bed is too high for me. Sigh. I wish I could jump like you.

    • Hi Ranger!! Your little legs just aren’t long enough for a bed-leaping thing are they! Well, guess what – I’m getting too old and arthritic for jumping up on the bed too but if I scream quietly call my Mom, she comes in and puts me up there. My own personal “Elevator Mom”. Anyway, I used to be quite the jumper in my youth. I’m glad you can at least leap up on the couch though because most people furniture is pretty darn comfy isn’t it!!! Tee Hee

      Happy Thursday Ranger!

    • Hi Bacon!!! I’m not sure why my Mom picked Thursday for chores but when she used to work it was Saturday. I do like to help though – sometimes I’m not entirely sure she appreciates my help (!) but I’m always right there where she is sticking my paw in for support…..tee hee. Bacon did you know that August 31st is INTERNATIONAL BACON DAY??????? I found out about it on a blog I didn’t know about which Miss Caren at CAT CHAT told me about……. http://365daysofbacon.wordpress.com. Needless to say I’m rather excited about it. I know for sure there’s not an International Sammy Day so you’re one lucky piggy to have your very own DAY!

        As far as chores. Everyone here gets an assignment. Mine is pulling all of my dirty clothes and stuff to the laundry room. I call it free pig labor – snorts. XOXO – Bacon

  5. Sammy, did you really accomplish all of that before the sun came up? We’re ready to go as soon as it gets light outside, but if the sun’s not up, neither are we!

    • Yes I agree that we’re probably ahead of most normal people (hahahahahahahahaha) in that Mom’s up before the rooster is and starting her day. At least Dad’s smart and sleeps until a decent hour but my Mom’s ALWAYS been an early bird. I don’t mind because we have that time together!

    • My Mom had to get up at that horrid hour when she worked – now that she’s retired she doesn’t HAVE to do that but still does – humans are kind of weird sometimes (!) – BUT because my Dad is smart enough to SLEEP IN, this gives me a chance to have some QUALITY time with Mom.

  7. I bet your mom wouldn’t even know how to make the bed without your help. If you didn’t help her one day, she’d be too busy wonderin’ why you weren’t helpin’ to get those sheets changed. You are indispensable, by friend. Indispensable!

    • Gosh Nissy…..I suppose if I wasn’t there to help her she’d just not bother changing the sheets and THAT could be a rather large disaster after a while don’t you think????

    • My Mom’s got tons of energy super early in the day then slowly over the day she gets slower and slower until I can pop up on her lap and keep her down for a while! HAHAHAHA I don’t walk around our neighborhood – just our yard – but Eddie, the cat before me DID walk with my Mom and Dad around the neighborhood. If he got tired Dad would pick him up and put him on his shoulder and continue on until Eddie wanted back down again. Our block is almost a mile so it was quite a long ways for Eddie to trek with them but he loved it.

    • I think our Moms like our help – but sometimes maybe our “help” means more work for our Moms – I’m like you, I like to sprinkle litter here, there and everywhere when I “flush” my toilet and Mom doesn’t think that’s very helpful. I’m just trying to DECORATE but she keeps cleaning it up! What’s with that?
