Now I have mentioned him before but Brutus, my bulldog, doesn't really earn his keep. He sleeps all day, barks at nothing and in general, is incredibly lazy. His idea of a walk is a short jaunt, 100 yards tops and then a nap on someone's front lawn before he can work up the energy to make it back to the house.
He sleeps through anything that might be construed as guard dog duty. See my post on Suspenseful Moments here for proof. He will of course rouse himself if my daughter or any of her pretty friends are around. He will go out of his way to put on his “aren't I the cutest dog and don't you just want to feed me” routine for them for a limited time and then? Back to napping.
So we decided that he needed to start doing some actual work around here. I know I have said he helps me write but really is keeping me company a career? I think not. We don't want him relying on his cuteness to get him by. This was our first attempt to get him on a career path. He does look a lot smarter with the Chanel glasses on. And we all know if you look smart you must be smart, right? So what do you think? Brutus as my Proof Reader?
