2.- I promise to be always sooooo excited to start working.
3- And I promise to mean it! AROOOOOOO…..
4- I will avoid lingering on delicious smells – oh those lickedy-lick smells of Holiday turkey and ham and gravy, hmm, hmmm, hmmmmm…
5- I promise to be less lazy – I whoof you (“promise you” in canine lingo) – Oh! Don’t I looooove sleeping.
6- I promise to lose some weight: I think I will start with 1 less kibble a day, that should do it, right?
7.- I promise not to mis-lead my co-mate, Malamar, in the wrong sniffing direction, at least not as often as I used to. I have to admit, I chuckle when she falls for my shenanigans.
8.- I will try to focus on doing my business during my potty breaks rather than being obsessed with inhaling as many atoms and molecules of smells as possible.
9.- And I’ll think about not being consumed with the desire to chase those annoying chipmunks
10.- I’ll try to work first before trying to score more food.
11- I’ll try to remind myself that my handlers are humans and thus will pay a bit more attention to their un-reasonable needs, although I was bred to work without direction from humans!!!!
12- I will also try not to have that look that clearly says
“you‘ ve got to be kidding, right!”
