Hi there, it’s me, the Ninja. While most of Blogville is participating in Wordless Wednesday, today is a working day around the Ranch, at least for one of us. Today is the last working day this year for my knuckleheaded brother to spread smiles at West Pines. But first, I have to get him out of bed. Looks like yesterday’s hospital visits took a little out of him. As soon as he came home, he took a long nap.
Meanwhile for me, there are stuffies to
attack play with and squirrels to bark at while he’s working and far too busy to miss him while he visits his friends at West Pines. I just hope he doesn’t try to use that stethoscope on me.
Happy mid-week. Maybe I can help huMom out later after she comes home with some of her Christmas preparations. I have offered to help her out in the kitchen, by
licking keeping the floors clean while she’s making treats but she keeps shooing me out. Not worries for me though, I can block sit in the doorway and obstruct her path almost as easily as I can under her feet. Then again I can always use a paw to help tie bows on presents she’s wrapping. I’m a equal opportunity, multi-dimensional helper.
Live, love, bark! 🐾

An equal opportunity, multi-dimensional helper, we are so impressed! We do lots of cleaning the floors too and here it is not always appreciated either. Humans, huh. Happy Holidays friends! B & S
They just don’t realize how helpful we are, do they, Benji and Skye? Happy howlidays to all of you!
100% agree and Happy howlidays to all of you too!
Every dog has their special jobs, and you sound quite good at yours, Elsa! ♥
Mom says I take it to a whole new level. 🤣
Elsa, I bet you are really helpful around the house. I, Lucy, lick the kitchen floor A LOT to keep it shiny clean. Your brother The Dogtor looks very handsome in his whites with his stethoscope. I hope he doesn’t get too worn out. I could come over and lick his furs for him if he needs a lick massage. XOX Lucy
Ooh, we could have a lick-a-thon!
Lookin so sleepy inn yore photoe Dogtur Sam!! Nothin a l-o-n-g nappie won’t cure!
An look how hansum you are inn yore whitecoat an stethy scope!
My brother cleans up nicely. 🥰
Being Mom’s helper is so much fun. Plus delicious!
Love and licks,
You just never know what tasty tidbits fall on the floor. And as sloppy a cook as my mom is, it’s like manna from heaven.
I wouldn’t fear the stethoscope, I’d worry when Dr. Sam pulls out the rectal thermometer….
Oh Sam, I am sure you worked very very hard at your job, and deserve a nice long nap my furiend!
Elsa, I tried to help Ma out too, butts all I gets is ‘move, move, move’ (that’s when I knows she is annoyed…when she says it three times….just cause she almost tripped over me is no reason to gets testy!!! just sayin’…..) I am pooped nows, cause she kept me up all afternoon, so I thinks I’ll take Sam’s lead….
Sheesh, what is IT with these bossy moms? Sweet dreams, precious girl.
Hope your last work day of 2019 went well and now get some well deserved rest Sam
Mabel & Hilda
Thanks, Mabel & Hilda. It was a good day but happy to report resting has been extra sweet.
Your help services are not free.
But a price we’re happy to pay.
Good job to both of you! You, Ninja, do a great job of holding down the fort while your brother is working. Way to go!
Thanks. I do my best even if mom complains I drag out all the toys all over.
Oh Ninja, you are so good at what you do – attacking stuffies, chasing squirrels, cleaning the floor, etc. Sam is good at helping people feel better. We all have our place in this world. It would be boring if we were all the same. Keep up the good work!
I’ll certainly do my best. Mom probably won’t like it though. 😂
Rest is important for good doctors.
There’s a lot to be said in the recuperative process. 😊
How could your Mom resist some help from her sweet Ninja???
Woos – Lightning, Misty, and Timber
Aw, Sam is such a good dogtor! And Ninja, you keep attacking those stuffies!! Enjoy your down time!!
Always. On both counts. ☺️
🐬🐬 Bravo Sam! 👏🏻😄Thank you for your years of service! 💥💎Sharing your special kind of comfort and love along your path. 🐬 Enjoy your retirement 🧐 Share you wisdom with the Ninja! 🐬
Awww…you are the best! Always helpful!
Hahah – super fun and love the pets – happy
We each have our jobs, Ninja! You just keep huMom entertained (even if she seems a tad frustrated by you tripping her up occasionally)…
Have a fabulous Wednesday!
Go easy on the Samster…somebody has to keep those blankets warm. They won’t do it by themselves. Protip: wait for the baking to begin and then volunteer for licking clean the mixing bowls!
Why bother with mixing bowls when I can Hoover up the floor AND trip up the mom? BOL
We depend a lot on the canine floor cleaners when I cook! Good job, Elsa. Give Sam a hug for us. He’s doing different help that is also appreciated.
He had some very intense meets today but think he left peeps feeling a tad bit better for it.
Just one more workday and you can take a Christmas/New Years vacation. I want to thank you for all the joy your bring.
Have a woof woof Working Wednesday. My best to your mom. ♥
We’re looking forward to a little down time. That is if mom gets her act in gear. Happy mid-week Sandee.
Nothing like the Ninja and Dr Sam doing their respective things.
Have a great Wednesday guys!
The Knucklehead and I are both firm believers in utilizing one’s best traits in life. He’s good with peeps while I’m a ruthless stuffie killer. 😊
You balance each other so very well. 🙂
Dogtor Sam looks so professional in his little outfit. Do his patients follow his orders?
Far more so than one might think. 😁
I could not cope up with just one pet. You are doing yeoman service, hats off to you.
He wins whenever he brightens someone’s day because he love people so much. Seems like a win-win scenario for all.
Hope you are doing well.
My latest article “A War is Coming”, on my blog. Kindly give your views and comments.
helping all those people might be very exhausting for an empathic dog. Sam is so good…
He is such a sweet boy and probably his last time spreading joy at Lutheran.
Oh have a super last day in 2019 Dr. Sam! We tried to help today too but SHE! said thank you, but it started with an F…
Bwahaha…your mom and my mom talk the same language I think! 😇
