Domestic animal

Flossie eats her dinner. Enthusiastically. There is no other way.


Then she does the washing up. That bowl has to be absolutely spotless, not a speck of food left anywhere, and it has to gleam.


When satisfied with the result, she brings it to me to be put away. She learned this in about 3 seconds flat from Fran's dogs.

Given the effort she puts into cleaning her bowl, I feel almost guilty for washing it up again (with hot water and detergent, rather than a big pink tongue; I know, it's disappointing).

Are you sure you're feeding her enough? That looks like a scene from "Florence Twist" to me.

Nearly correct, Isabelle - she gets a biscuit after she returns her bowl..... I see it as dessert, not gruel.

Very cute. They do know how to inhale a meal, don't they?

What a useful dog. Does she do floors? How much an hour?

Our dogs clean the cat's bowl too but I still feel the need to wash all the dishes 'properly'.

Oh the Flossiness of it all. Our lab also cleans the floor around her empty bowl, several times, hopefully. And then comes to get in on our dinner. she doesn't know the bring the bowl back trick...but as her bowl is ceramic and painted for her by a 3 year old admirer I'll forgive her.

Looking forward to Sunday with Flossie and you of course.

I have friends whose dog attacks the plates in the dishwasher before they get to shut the door. I really don't know why they bother washing them. He does such a fantastic job.

My poodle would sometimes lick the carpet. I asked the vet if he thought that she was deficient in something in her diet that she was getting by licking the carpet. He said he had no idea, but could I send her round to lick his clean ....... as he was rather a handsome young vet, I forgave him!!
