Help Where Help Is Needed

Greetings to all!  It's me, Maggie!  You all know how fond I am of the vacuum!  I'm into keeping pace with Mom while she drives it, watching her closely to make sure she gets everything, cord management ... hopefully being vacuumed myself -- I love it all!

The other day, we were using the vac with attachments, so I asked Mom to give 10 Downing Street a bit of a cleaning.

"Yeah, that looks good.  Did you get under the cooling pad, too?"

It was great.  I got to be vac-ed a bit myself afterwards.  Sorry, no video this time.  We were on to other things.  Like using the other vac.

"Wait!  You missed a --- ah!  Got it!  Excellent job, Mom!"

A two-vac day. It was awesome!

I helped everywhere except for the kitchen - Cam was in there, so I figured she could handle it.

"You don't expect me to get up, do you?"
"Nah.  You're good."

She has her own approach to helping.

Do you help out, when your bipeds need help?

Yours sincerely,
Margaret Thatcher

  6. Good job, Maggie. We try to help by checking for missing spots too, but Mom says we are shedding so much that as soon as she vacuums one spot and we walk by, we drop another tuft of our lovely furs:) Just trying to be sure Mom puts that Vacula to good use.

  10. I'm very helpful by leaving the room when the vacuum is doing his thing. Mackie helps out by bringing in all sorts of stuffs that don't belong inside the house. It makes mom feel more productive when she can actually hear lots of dirt going up the vacuum hose!

  11. Your mom keeps everything so neat and clean for you, doesn't it make you want to shed more?
