You can imagine how excited I was to see this downy snoot in my inbox!
Hi, baby! What a good girl. The dryer opening is low and can be challenging to reach, so as a service dog in training to assist a person with a mobility-related disability, Ruby is learning to make tasks like laundry a little bit easier.
I adore this photo because Roo was always a big help with the laundry when she lived with me. Of course, her idea of help was mostly to poke around the hamper for a good, chewy sock.
But one time, well, make of this what you will. I was upstairs in the bedroom getting dressed for an evening out. Roo disappears, then comes prancing back in with a present: an undergarment of mine that she had snoodled out of a folded basket of clothes in the downstairs laundry room. She waited for me to take it from her, and I laughed and thanked her. Then she leaves again and a minute later I look down and there she is, wagging her tail, with a pair of pantyhose dangling from her muzzle.
I know. All just a complete coincidence...right?
Many thanks to the ever-thoughtful Sue for keeping us pupdated with photos and to Ruby's advanced trainer for the wonderful work she is doing with Ruby.
