The pet issue again? Deadline? Why are stupid humans always in such a hurry? What is this deadline thing? They know I can only type one word per hour. Humans are always in such a hurry. Editor Sarah Sidlow asked me, “Baloo, please write the forward for this year’s Working Pets feature?” Doesn’t she know I’m busy? Being public relations director for the Dayton City Paper isn’t easy, you know? So I got in touch with Jennifer Hanauer Lumpkin to round up photos of this year’s working pets. And they all work hard just like me – even stupid dogs. Oh yeah, and did my human Paul Noah really think I didn’t know he brought home a dog when he gave me my “vacation” at his mother in law’s house? I can still smell it from last Fall. Stupid humans. Do you know any other working pets we missed this year? Please email their photos and I will include them next year! And next time you come across one of my working friends make sure to give them the respect they deserve and give them a pet, or a treat or both (yes, even the dogs)!
