tRicky T-Day!

You all know how obsessed mom is with the RETRIEVE - holy cow my life sure has changed since I learned how to retrieve that dumbbell. She just won't stop! I am learning two new tricks at the moment and even though neither one is ready, we decided to give you a sneak peek!

Mom is making me go and get her slippers for her! But her feet are so big that I have trouble carrying that huge slipper all the way back to her while she lounges on the couch!





And if that isn't bad enough, I am also learning how to bring her the tv remote! I am good at holding it and I can walk with it (LOL) but I am having a really tough time picking it up if it is laying on the ground.


What's next? Dinner and a glass of wine, mom?

Soon Oreo and I will be able to go out and get jobs helping lazy humans - we are already both highly skilled at alerting our moms and dads to danger (both real and imagined), and we can sort of open and close doors, Oreo turns off the lights and loads the dishwasher, and I bring slippers and remotes. If he and I put all of our skills together, I think we can make lots of money and buy all the Orbees and treats we want!

Gotta zoom!

Oreo says, "Stop giving my mom crazy ideas Ricky! It's bad enough that I already do most of the work around the house! I guess we should both start demanding a weekly allowance. This is doggie labor."

I'm do sorry to know that your mom is treating you like her new found helper, Ricky! Do you have the doggy abuse line?
However, you're so cute when you picked up your mom's slippers. What a clever boy you are!
I hope Sara and your mom won't really send Oreo and you out for some odd jobs and make some money from both of you! Don't worry, I promise I'll keep my sharp eyes on them : )

OOOH I am so sorry Ricky, this is where it all starts and I am so glad you are so smart and understand right where this is going...I just dont know what to tell you about how to put a stop to all of this, at least it looks like you are having a great time!!! And you do do it so well! Good job, you ROCK Ricky!

Poor Ricky - are you sure the slippers were heavy and not just smelly gfaw gfaw !!!! You did great on you practice and I bet you will have it down in no time at all.

Amy Wood said...

Ricky is such a good helper! And he is so cute carrying the slipper. You and Oreo are both talented boys!!

Dawn said...

You are just adorable holding that tv remote! And not even chewing it into pieces! I'd never trust Katie to do that. Not that she would .... she thinks she's too much of a princess to help out around the house. Hey. Can we move in with YOU?

Good job Ricky with the retrieve!

Diana said...

I love it! I need to teach Miley and Guiness these things.

Sagira said...

hehe...oh my...slippers and remotes. I think you're right dinner and wine will be next.

Nat said...

Okay, this is just SO cute! You're killing me with your cuteness, Ricky!

Marie said...

Man, you and Oreo are making the rest of our shelties look lazy. Hehe

Lian said...

Oh Ricky, you are so cute! You know sometimes our human mummies forgot how to give us a break but you did a fantastic job there!

Patti and DeBoys said...

Hopefully your mom doesn't make you retrieve the newspaper for your breakfast...like ours does. She use to give us a TREAT, but somewhere along the way she changed the reward to our BREAKFAST. WOL

Wow, Ricky - you sure are one helpful doggie! Hsin-Yi would love to teach me to be more "helpful" around the house but she gets put off asking me to bring things in my mouth coz they get so slimey with drool that then she doesn't want to touch them and they can't be used at all but have to go straight in the wash!! :-)

Slobbers,
Honey the Great Dane
