TOPIC:  Service Dawg

Posted:  8/7/2017, 4:22 a.m. EDT


So, I've been thinking about applying for one of those assistance dog jobs.  Dad says you have to be trained to help as a puppy growing up and then you can go on to lead a helpful life for a human person who may need a little help.  Considering that I'm not your average dawg, I don't figure that I need much training.  Like, I already know how to chase rodent squirrels and cats, excavate large areas of the yard as needed, rip newspapers to shreds (no store-bought shredder needed!), and can also warn off intruders by barking incessantly (I also had weapons training when I was just a pup).  I suppose what I really need to do is figure out what I need for a starting salary.  This should of course be low enough so I don't compromise my social security check.  That is all.
