My Dog is My Assistant

I wrote this piece in Yahoo Voices. It's about Mocha Barney and a phase she went through when she felt it was her job to keep watch over my daily schedule:)

Step aside Khloe Kardashian, Rachel Zoe and Paris Hilton. You aren’t the only ones with personal assistants. I have one too -- my dog, Mocha Barney. And I don’t pay her a sliver of what you probably pay yours.
I realized Mocha is my personal assistant when I saw an episode of “The World According to Paris.” In that scene, Paris’ assistant forced Paris to wake up, dress and do community service for a DUI she incurred.

You certainly don't need to envy anyone when U have Mocha Barney. She's a priceless assistant, friend, daughter, companion...whatever U want to call her.

Loved the pictures from ur outing..the dog-event we mean. Mummy says she likes that orange dress very much too.

Agnes B Bullock, thanks. Mocha Barney can be quite a handful but she is also so much fun!

Finn, Maybe its not really that we or they are the personal assistants but we really love and can communicate with our pets:)

Remington, you are so multi tasked as dog pastor, sports newscaster, model of sports gear and other careers that you do need a retinue of staff to get it all moving:)

TexWiseGirl, thank you. It's not perfect but it does mesh:)

Bob Bushell, nice to know dogs have a role in your life took, apart from the lovely birds you take stock of so carefully in the wild.

Beaded Tail, thank you for our kind words on Mocha Barney. She is quite a handful:)But she does make my life move forward.

Priscilla, yes, she is a cool dog:) Maybe not as well trained as you are, but in her own rough edged way, she has her good sides.

Geetalina,

Our mom is glad to know you agree with her regarding the orange dress, ah to be thin and sexy, she is mourning...She agrees that Mocha wears many hats in her life:)

Nancy Claeys, wonderful to have assistants who are happy to work like a dog (literally) for some food, water and walks in the park, don't you think? Then there are the hugs at night...

Kris @ Beyond the Whiskers, it is all a matter of perspective. I love that jacket of Mocha's too:)

Much love, The Euthymic Dog:)

Phil said...

I'd like a cute personal assistant too!

Phil,

All you need to do is find a dog with a bossy attitude. They say that dachsunds have this "can do" tendency:)
