Y'all will never believe this!

I STILL can't believe it!

First of all, Mom is making me tell all of you that this report card I got the last time I stayed at the doggie hotel is a BFL (Big Fat Lie).

After Mom and I took our shower last night (you should have seen how much dog hair was all over Mom when we finished - sheesh! she acted like it was gross or something!), she spent hours and hours blow-drying me.

Then she got out 2 different brushes, and a comb, and tried to "make me pretty" - but I snarled and snapped, and squirmed and wiggled, and was very uncooperative. So now she thinks the doggie hotel must put me on doggie Valium before they ever brush me.

So, anyway, back to the big news.

Mom got up 20 minutes early this morning!

I know - this is highly unusual, so I was already super-suspicious.

She did her usual morning routine, and let me do mine, and then when it was time for her to go to work (this is the time I usually hide in the backyard and make her bribe me with treats to get me to come inside) she opened the back door and yelled "Let's get your leash!"

So I came running at super duper speed, and helped her find my leash, and she put it on me, and I helped show her where the car is, and I got in, and we went.....

Straight to the doctor's office - but only so she could get me a quick pedicure.


So then we drove and drove some more, and we ended up at her work - and she let me in, and took off my leash, and then went back to the car and brought in my new bed, and all my new toys, and treats, and filled a water bowl for me, and told me I get to come to work with her EVERYDAY now - forever!!

Look - if you pay attention, you will see that I have a brand new cow-baby here at work - he is just like my one at home, except this one is white, and the one at home has turned brown. Don't know why - must be what happens when cows get old.

So I checked out my bed, and sometimes I lie in it, but mostly I have a lot of jobs to do!

I have to greet all the customers, and help them shop.

And Mom has lots of beads hanging on pegboards, and I dust these several times an hour, to keep them clean.

All the peoples that come here are very friendly, and like to give me rubs and treats.

I like coming here!
Can you believe it? No more staying home all by myself all day!

The only bad thing is, Mom spends a lot of time doing the same boring stuff she does at home - play with beads.

Oh Bailey you are sooo lucky to be able to go with your Mom.
I used to go with my Mom when she helped out at her friend's store and I loved it!
I was like the greeter at Wally World, only better looking! He-he!
You look really handsome all groomed.
I hope you have a fun time now that you don't have to be all by yourself.
Happy Holidays!
Luv, Lucy (Woof!)

I think it is so cute that they give you a report card :) We are soooooooo jealous that you get to go to work together!! My Mom would shop at any store if the assistant shop manager was a Golden Retriever!

If you want things to be a little less boring, knock a few boxes of beads off a table and see what happens!

Ok, please don't listen to me, I am a troublemaker. ;)

Bailey said...

Well, I have to confess, I have been wreaking havoc with the Christmas decorations.....
and a few strands of beads mysteriously fell of a table when I walked past it...

Oh Bailey... I love your posts. You remind me so much of my Tilly. One day, I hope to have my own shop so I can bring her to work with me as well. :)
