A PROMOTION!


Gracie here.  

I've been promoted!  

Mom said I'm lousy at my job of watching the house because I bark at everybody and everything.  
So she has promoted me to babysitter.


Now this little cookie carrier might seem sweet and innocent to you...


But trust me... she's always looking for trouble.


That's where my services come in...  


 One look at me and she turns away from her ornery obsession and comes over to pat my head and say "N-I-C-E".


 The fringe benefits of this babysitting job are beyond awesome.


I'm not sure what Puffs are, but they are tasty.


And the kid loves to share.


As a matter of fact, she'd rather share with me than eat her food herself.


The nag Mom says if I continue to beg Short-Stuff for food, my job as babysitter will be short lived.


I can't think about her threats though.  I have a job to do and I always put every effort into doing my job well.


And as a result, we have a happy, healthy kid.


Short-Stuff and I had a talk.  She told me if I eat her yucky hotdog, she'll make sure to keep you-know-who busy with her cute-stuff so that I don't get yelled at.


She's a pretty smart kid ya know.  And I think between the two of us we can handle you-know-who and rise above her ridiculous threats.

That looks like a pretty good job you have. Do you think she could come to my barnyard with some peanuts?

GRACIE that's a nice CUSHY job with plenty of FRINGE benefits. Just be MORE discreet and the two of you will get away with your food sharing.

These pictures are amazing and beyond cute!!! It is so hard to get live action shots like this. By the time I get my camera, everything is over. You must walk around with it in your pocket or something. And Puffs are good for everyone!!! Light as a feather and almost no calories!!

Great job Gracie. So good of you to help short-stuff with learning table manners and eating properly. This is a very important thing to do and learning to share too. We say plumb job and epic win-win. Have a terrific Thursday.
Best wishes Molly

It looks like Gracie is doing a great job as babysitter! She deserves a few puffs!!

If this goes one there will be on skinny kid and one fat dog in your household, Bobbi. I don't want to get them in trouble, but I worry!

We are so happy you've gotten a promotion Gracie! Taking care of the "shortie" seemingly, will be a cushy job! But...you might wanna ease up on the snacks buddy....

You're "rockin' the babysittin' gig", Gracie. Mom is bluffing. She couldn't run that house without you!!
