It's all a matter of perspective...

Jen's Perspective.

Dogs are the funniest creatures. If you have a chance to watch them on any given day, they will be lying sleeping, then get up, go for a wander, come back to exactly the same spot and lie down again for another sleep.

Or maybe they will do a random sniff around the room.

Or change sleeping locations.

Or wander up to their drink bowl, decide they don't want a drink after all, and wander off again.

It all seems very restless and without purpose.


The LBD's Perspective

Humans are the funniest creatures. If you have a chance to watch them on cleaning day, they will be working in one room, then go for a wander and pick something up, come back to exactly the same spot and put the thing they just picked up in some cupboard.

Or maybe they will do a random shuffle of stuff around the room.

Or change dusting locations.

Or wander into the kitchen, decide they forgot to pick up the water glass from another room, and wander off again.

It all seems very restless and without purpose.


And the chance that I don't appreciate the humour of this situation?

... Approximatley None!

I often think of tidying as "Putting Things On Top Of Other Things", which was a Monty Python sketch once.

It is silly when you think about it. Let's give it up.

My cat has been taking lessons from the LBD. And... cleaning day? What's that?

And yet, we achieve a lot while a dog achieves ... Approximately Nothing.

Greg's dog is like that, but add, "gets up to follow her master into every room, if he leaves the room, the ears go up and waits for a minute to see if he's going to come back and if not, then go follow him" lol
