I Swear the Dog Needs a Job

You know your dog visits the vet a little too often when he gets his own Walgreens prescription card!


The big puppy or "Big Rig" as we like to call him, recently had another bout with illness (tumor on his spleen, turned out to be benign) that required more surgery but is recovering nicely and anxious to get back to work so he can help pay for all of his $$ medical bills $$.


He was recently laid off from his longtime job of waking the teenage girl in the house every morning because she went off to college and now has to find someone else to do that for her. Chasing squirrels doesn't really pay much so if you know of any part-time positions available for a sweet, friendly, hard-working, conscientious Wheaten Terrier, let us know. Just send an application to the house because, look, he gets junk mail now too.


Only a matter of time before his voter registration card arrives. This is an election year and we live near Chicago where every vote counts . . . sometimes twice.

  2. Yes, he can do that. I can help to make sure it gets done right this time.

  3. He is such a cutie, hope he feels good again soon! I love the Walgreens card and he gets mail, even the dogs information gets sold for solicitation. I wouldn't be surprised if he gets political calls to encourage him to vote this year! ! !

  4. What a precious dog! I sure hope he's feeling better soon. They look so helpless when the aren't feeling well.

  5. My mom is looking for a seeing eye dog. Can he open a can of orange juice? She is diabetic and has low blood sugars, she heard that dogs can be trained to alert a human of low blood sugars and get them orange juice to drink when they can not. May be he could come for a job interview when you come to Waterloo in Feb to the Grout. We are registerred to come to your workshop. Look forward to the time learning from you.

  6. Too funny! Surely holding the seat cushions down pays something, right?

  7. Yes, his sight is very good. If she left the orange juice on the floor in a bowl he would be able to push it over to her and make sure there was some left for her if her blood sugar got too low. I'll check his schedule and see if he's available in Feb.

  8. LOL!! Too Funny.

    psst - KitKat here, I tell you our jobs around the house so you can pay off those bills. Mine is to bark when the folks come home. Continually until it drives them nuts - but then they know they were missed. Neptune's is to sleep with the girl, but I understand yours is in college. She also licks the grandkids faces. Keeps them clean and neat. And Sugar keeps everyone's lap warm. Very important when it's cold outside. Let me know if any of these jobs work for you at your house.

  10. Hi Kathleen, as we were concerned about our pets, my cat did several tests at the end of the year. She is limping, it is arthritis. She has 14 years of age, I am very sad for her pain. But we all will to get old ...
    I wish health to your lovely dog.

  11. LOL That is so funny!
    I am so glad he's doing better though and especially that is tumor was benign. He sure is a great looking dog. What an adorable face he has. No wonder he is getting all this attention in the mail. Apparently he knows how to turn on the charm :)

  16. Your dog is a-dorable!! I've only ever seen Wheaten Terriers on the AKC Dog Shows; I grew up with a mini poodle named "jou-jou"--which means toy in French. She was my constant companion...miss having a doggie pal--but have a granddog--'Kota--my son's baby dog....Julierose a dog lover

  17. You better start checking the mail. Rigby could start getting credit cards next. It seems he's already established an identity and legal address; that's all it takes for a line of credit!

  18. This brought a smile to my day! Rigby is a cutie. I hope he finds a new purpose with benefits!

  19. That is just hysterical! What a cute dog:)

  20. I'm sorry to hear that Rigby was ill but I had to chuckle when I read this post, especially after seeing the prescription card with his name! I needed some levity today. Thank you! I hope your new year is off to a good start!

  21. As long as he votes for the good guys... ; ) Lots of rabbits for him to chase down in the far western suburbs. Gee, he could vote here, too!
