A valued member of your household has a big job.

He's in charge of security, which he does well, but there's more. He's also part vacuum cleaner, taste-tester in the kitchen, part psychiatrist, entertainer, and exercise machine. He doubles as baby-sitter in a pinch, and if allowed on the sofa, he's an interior decorator.


Best news: he works for cheap. All he needs are treats, a behind-the-ear skritch, and a "good boy, good job" now and then.
