KP Duty

Ha roo, pups and cool cats!  It's me - Drill SGT Zim!  Mom whipped up a fresh batch of my Stinky Goodness Jerky Treats the other day.  I thought the very least I could do was assign myself to KP Duty.  I know - work, work, work!  I can't help it - it's who I am.

I hung out with her for the whole process!  From choosing just the right cans, to slicing it all up, to loading it into the Stinky Goodness Machine.  And then the part where she really needed my help - clean up!

"Are those scraps?"

Yep.  That cutting board was in dire need of a thorough cleaning!

I had Mom set it on the floor for me, then I got busy.

"I've got this, Mom!"

Every morsel must be removed!

Spit polish, KP-style!

I'd like to thank whoever put the rubbery things on the sides of the cutting board so it doesn't slip around on the floor while I work.  Safety first!

It's important to check the floor, in case any spilled over:

When everything was good to go, I told Mom she could just put the cutting board right back into the cupboard.  For some odd reason, she put it in the dishwasher anyway.  I don't quite understand that.

It was a great KP Duty shift.  Now I think  a little nap  Guard Duty is in order.

Play bows,


  1. Make sure you got every scrap indeed Zim. Waste not want not. Have a terrific Tuesday.
    Best wishes Molly

  2. Zim you are forever workin'. I know it's in your DNA but dude you are making the rest of us look bad. I however do share your love of KP duty. Better than walking a beat in the rain. It even beats workin' in an office. I'd take KP over those things any day.

  3. I'm also the pre dishwasher in our house. Like you, I don't understand the need to rewash what I have just cleaned. Humans.


  4. Bourb tried to help mom with the dishes the other day but she said something about him not enjoying the ride if the machine got turned on......

  5. I'm with Goose. You're going to make all the rest of us look bad with this work work work mentality of yours. Take a load off and enjoy life sometimes!

  6. We would like that job
    Benny & Lily

  7. You did one superduper job, Zim!

    Love ya lots,
    Mitch and Molly

  8. Good thing your mom has you there to help her do the cleaning up part.

  9. Is it really work to help in the kitchen? I thought it was our duty to help clean and supervise kitchen activities.


  10. You sure make us cats look lazy Zim! We don't quite understand why your mom washed a perfectly clean cutting board though.

  11. What with your help, Zim, it's sort of win-win and your mom is more likely to make more Stinky Goodness Treats for you. You should talk to her tho, 'cause she's doing double work, really, on the clean-up. Don't work too hard on, um, Guard Duty...

  12. You didn't share any with Dave?

    You are a lucky pup to get homemade treats!


  13. Scraps sure make putting in a days work all worth it. Bol.....

    The silvers and more

  14. Excellent job! I love that kind of clean up.

    Loveys Sasha

  15. Yummy! Lucky you!!
    Enjoy your day!!


  16. Zim, we have that exact same cutting board. Sadly, I have yet to see our on the floor, stinky goodness or not. Enjoy!
