If the dogs and I took a vote though, our favorite chore would be scrubbing, rinsing and filling water buckets.
"Why?", you ask.
Well, although I spend time messing with dogs while picking up bowls, scooping and otherwise meandering through the yard, the length of time varies. When I'm filling buckets each dog knows I am in their area and they have my undivided attention when I'm filling their bucket.
They all have different things they wish to do with their 'Mom Time'.
Some squish under my arm for snuggles...
Then there are the storytellers....
|Trooper (I think he is trying to explain that bad hairdo!)|
And the ones with grievences to air.
Some prefer ear scratches...
....some want their fur plucked...
Neo just wanted portraits with Mom (which didn't work out so well)!
|He ended up just going for a 'selfie'.|
...and a bunch just want to 'smoosh'....
...and one was too wrapped up wondering what my silly Border Collie and Mark's Stupid Cat were up to to pay too much attention to me!
Got to admit Vader, I was wondering myself.....
