Clean up the floor after dinner
Alerting you to people on your property, or to intruders
Swimming races with the kids
Tire the kids out with a fetch game
"Lookout" at the front of your boat
Keep you company on errands such as the bank drive through, pet supply store, drive through pharmacy, etc.
Lest we forget they are first and foremost our workout partners. And thank goodness for that.
Here's my challenge to you today. I'd like to hear from you on these and any other 'chores' your dog does. Does he herd the chicken to the coop at night or listen to your kids read their book aloud? One reader recently shared how her dog helped their foster dogs adjust to their new lives. Whatever their job, it is important that they have one. I'd like to hear your stories. Oh, and please send photos if you have them. I'd like to publish some of the better examples of what dogs do to "earn their keep."
