My chihuahua puppy has yet to earn a single dollar for this family, despite me constantly badgering her. “You’re not here to just eat, sleep, and shit!” I tell her, She never responds. But she does do chores, which I blogged about here. She’s picked up a couple more.
- She eats rotten tomatoes out of the garden. Not just the tomatoes on the ground, she’ll eat the smushy dead ones right off of the vine. She loves them.
- If you’ve ever seen an industrial paper shredder you know that they don’t mess around, neither does Lulu. She shreds paper with brutal efficiency. Newspapers, coupons, my son’s schoolwork, even bills are no match for this pup.
- She’s taken to being my personal alarm clock. From her cage, she’ll howl and bark until I wake up. Oh no, don’t think she wakes me at a specific time, it’s completely random. It’s usually sometime between 1am and 6am.
If she keeps this up, I’m going to have to start paying her.
