Kyleigh is my personal trainer - the main reason I will always have a dog that is more determined than I am! Without her I would stay in the house all day and have way too many quilts made!

Her "jobs" (while unpaid) are to pick up all her toys before bed and put them in the toy box.

She also has to bring her three balls from the backyard and put them in the box on the deck.

Her self-appointed jobs:

Perimeter check of the yard before we go to inside for the night to make sure it's safe.

She MUST go and say good night to my dad before we go to bed. (My dad has learned that if he's going to bed before we do, he HAS to come down and say good night, or she'll bark at the bedroom door to make sure he's ok before we can go downstairs).

She is still trying to figure out how to open Echo's cage so she can have lunch.

I was looking for this thread this weekend. I'm so glad someone added to it.

Seven has appointed herself the house sock remover. If you are sitting and wearing socks, she will remove them and them "kill" them for us. We're grateful for her protection from those dangerous socks. Watching her do her job this weekend made me think of this thread. I intend to read all the other posts to get some ideas of useful jobs we might give her. The sock thing is getting old.

We say the same thing about our cats! When they meow for food, my husband and I often reply with, "Well when you get a job, you can have as much food as you want! It costs money!"
Hmm, I supposed Ralphie has a job, but I'd consider it only part-time. When we go for runs, his job is to keep pace with me and when we go on long weekend walks, his job is to carry his backpack that has his water in it and cleanup bags. If we're not near a garbage can, then the bagged up poop goes in the side pocket and he carries that, too, until I can toss it.
