Hello Everyone,

I have a great family.  (Even if one of my catty brothers launches sneak attacks at me sometimes.)

Because my family are (mostly) good to me, I try to be good and helpful for them as well.  I think being helpful shows how much I love them.

I help in lots of ways. Here are some of them.

  • I make sure Mum is awake early enough so that she can hear her alarm.
  • I show Mr D where the food dish is so he knows where to feed us.
  • I help Mum eat cheese. (Percy helps too.  He likes cheese.)
  • I sleep right beside (sometimes on top of) Mum, so she won't ever be afraid of being alone in the dark.
  • I wake Mum to tell her if anyone makes a noise anywhere in the house, or outside on the street, during the night.
  • I help keep the humans fit and entertained by playing chase the ball, and tug of war with the rope toy.
  • I wait at the door for guests, and greet them.  (Mum says I shouldn't jump on people, but I get a little carried away with my greeting duty at times.)
  • I sit with Percy when Bumpy's been mean to him, so he knows he's welcome here.
  • I lie under Bumpy so he's warm and comfortable on cold days.
  • I garden with Mum.  I pick bits off plants, just the way she does. 
  • I clean up the cats' wet food dishes when they're finished.
  • I help the cats eat their dry food, even though I have to climb way up on the cat tower to do it.  I wonder why their dry food is kept way up there?
I'm a very, very helpful dog. That means that at the end of the day, I can lie back and relax, and be proud of myself, knowing I've made a big difference for everyone around me.

Licks and tail wags,
Miss Fantasia Dog.
(Call me Fanta.)
