Good morning, Cuddlers!
As we celebrate Labor Day, and for some, look forward to the cool days of autumn, it got me thinking about some of the tough jobs our pets have in caring for their humans. I thought I would try to do a top 10 list for this week’s cuddle.
Here we go with the Top 10 reasons our pets sometimes have tough jobs:
- Many dogs are in charge of taking their humans for walks. It’s not always easy to get the human attached to the leash for a good 15 – 20 minute walk.
- Cats and dogs are busy protecting us from bugs, spiders, squirrels, wildlife, and the occasional invisible critter.
- Cats and dogs have to clean themselves with their tongues.
- Sometimes, it’s hard work getting their humans to give treats. “Okay, I’ll give you my paw and sit just one more time…but, that’s it…it’s treat time.”
- Dogs and cats (like my Abby) are usually in charge of waking up their humans in the morning five minutes before their alarm goes off. It’s hard to get a human out of bed.
- Making their human put down any electronic devices so the fur baby can give and get attention is not an easy task.
- Many dogs have to bury their bones in the yard, which takes a lot of time, especially when their human keeps telling them “no.”
- Cats and dogs must look cute while sleeping…whether it’s on the couch, cuddled up with their human, in a unique spot, or on the bed, our fur babies must melt the hearts of their humans. (…and try to influence the human to take nap or go to bed, too.)
- Dogs and cats have the job of entertaining their human on a daily basis. Making their human smile or laugh is always on the agenda.
- Loving unconditionally!
Maybe #10 isn’t such a tough job for our pets, but when our busy lifestyles take over, our fur babies may not be able to give us as much attention. Hopefully, this weekend we will have a few extra minutes to play, cuddle, or nap with our furry friends.
Enjoy the cuddle!
