"So, ", KD asked, "is is true that every critter here at the kennel has a job and a purpose?".
Yes, KD, it is.
"Okay, we all know that the Curly Tails pull sleds through the cold and snow, what do Cricket and Bear do?"
They protect all of us from the wild creatures that live in the woods....
"Right! What about that freaky little Border Collie, Bet?"
She helps teach the baby Curly Tails some of the things they need to know to become top notch sled dogs.
"And what do Bait, Tic and I do?"
Well, you keep mice and squirrels out of the house and from eating our stores of dog food.
"But I can't catch mice and squirrels yet"
I know. Bait and Tic take care of that for you.
"So, let me get this straight......."
".....the Curly Tails run for hours on end in the cold and snow pulling sleds...."
".....the guard dogs are up all night scaring lions and tigers and bears away from the place...."
Well, not lions and tigers...but yes bears and wolves and coyotes and other wild critters.
".. Bait and Tic have to kill little potential disease carrying rodents...."
"....and I lie around all day and sleep in the house???"
"I've got it made in the shade!!!!!"
Oh yes, little kitten - yes, you do.
