It's My Job

Woo, everypup and everycat.  It's me - Dave, Guide Dog for the Color Blind!  Yesterday was just a great day!  We went on a couple walks, played, had a few snacks after lunch, then I settled in right here:

Mom commented that it was unusual for me to lay there; Zim usually guards the front door. (You know -- in case we have unexpected visitors or something.)  True... but I saw Mom go to the UPS site on the computer to track a certain package we were expecting and ...

It was the latest fabric order I helped her place!

"Let's crack this box OPEN!"

I couldn't believe she made me wait to open the package!

Finally she agreed we could open it and have a look at all the fabric. Check this out:

"Aqua!  And lime!  And azure!  And basil!  And ... WOO!!!"

I love it all! All but one are Amy Butler prints. I really like the way Amy puts color together.

What? Don't look at me like that - I'm a Guide Dog for the Color Blind -- this is my job!

I thought we should go out and admire the fabs in the natural daylight; Mom thought that was a great idea.

Zim came with us to stand guard, as you can see.

Don't they look great?!?! Mom just now got them out of the wash; I'm going to have to supervise her ironing them all this afternoon. I'd best rest up!  Do you all love your jobs as much as I do?!?
