Default Proud moments

Today, one of my dogs really impressed me. Not in agility, no
competition of any sort, but doing housework.

Yep, you read that right. Housework. I was doing laundry, taking stuff
out of the dryer. I couldn't grab it all, so I hauled what I could down
the hall to the bedroom, leaving the dryer door open. I dumped what I
had on the bed, and turned around in time to see Kira trotting down the
hall with one of my husband's t-shirts in her mouth. She trotted right
up to me and dropped it at my feet, then looked at me, slightly cocking
her head as if to say 'Well, what do ya think about that?'

Whatta dog.

Debbie

I've lined my two up and read them this post. They do the opposite. They
take the clothes from my pile and deposit them randomly throughout the
house. Well, I say "randomly" but it is never by the hampers or in the
laundry area so I guess it's not completely random!

Don't you love it when dogs think and try to figure US out?
