Workin' With MOM

Hello Friends.

I'm one blessed pup.  I get to go to work with my MOM a lot.  Not as much as I would like, but I know I get to go more than most dogs do.  I do go enough that I am listed on the STAFF page of our churches pictorial directory.  I do a whole lot there.  I am the security guard.  My MOM gets there pretty early in the morning, about 3 hours before anyone else.  So I make sure she is safe.

I take up my post in her office.  Don't mistake this as sleeping on the job.  I am on stealth alert. 

One of my other jobs is vole patrol.  Ridding the church grounds of any voles that nibble and eat up at the plant roots.

Sometimes my gal pal Belle joins me in vole patrol.  We make an unstoppable team.  She's not just another pretty face.

I also lend a paw to help my MOM write sermons, Sunday school lessons for the youth and other stuff she writes.  I guess you could say I am my MOM's "Goose" writer.

One of my most important job is making sure my MOM takes me outside.  It's not for me so much, but I make sure she takes time to smell the flowers.  That is very important to being productive and creative.

I also am a greeter to those who come to the church.  See that super nice lady on the left?  That's my friend Cindy.  Whenever she comes to the church she always gives me my favorite bone.  Yea this job has it's perks.

Even when I am outside on patrol, I always check every so often what is going on inside the office, just in case I am needed.  

It's getting late and I think it is almost time to go home.  Just one more patrol of the grounds to make sure every thing is secure.

When we get home MOM puts a blanket on me and lets me take a little snooze while she finishes up some work.  Yea it's a tough and tiring job.  But I would have it no other way.  The best part is I get to spend that time with my MOM and I like to think that I am a big help.  I will end as I started, I am one blessed pup.


  1. MOM is so lucky to have you as a worker. Very cool that you get to hang out with her all day.


  2. You sure are blessed! Most pups are home alone all day. I like that your friend is named Cindy!

  4. You got yourself a really hard job there Goose! I bet your Mom really appreciates everything that you do, especially the "smelling the flowers" part! Most humans forget that part of life, so it's great that you get to remind her a lot! :-D Enjoy hanging with your Mom!!

  25. And you do a great job too Goose. No one could ever fill your paws!

    Your Pals,

  26. You are a blessed pup, that's for sure. I'm sometimes the coworker of my mom, but her job isn't interesting.... sadly I can't work with my dad in case of my (or HIS?) foolish behavior:o)

  27. YOu are one blessed dog that is a HUGE blessing to so many others!! We love you and your MOM to the moon and back.
    Gracie and Schatzie :)

  28. Whoo! You are one hard worker Goose!! So glads you keep everybody safe and sound, and keep those nasty voles away! Belle sure looks like a good partner! You knows your Moms couldn't do it without yous!
    Keep up the good work, and remember...lots of naps!


  29. You and your MOM are very very lucky, to have each other.

    Gotta say - I didn't know that a church needed so much patrolling :) Perhaps you are patrolling to made sure that no treats go uneaten!

    When I taught at a college, I used to bring my dog to work. She made the students so relaxed when they came to my office for advice. It was wonderful. Just like you and your mom.

  30. Goose, we didn't know you were so important with all the jobs you do, It's kinda like the giving away of your toys, makes you all warm and fuzzy inside, have a good nighty nite!

    Your Furiends
    Susie & bites

  31. Very clever post, Goose! I love that you are a Goose writer and a protector of the premises from those darned voles! The fact that you get up 3 hours before your mom does means you are very serious about your job and I think you should get a raise! Maybe some extra treats or extra walks would be a good payment increase? Have a great day!

  32. Goose, What a wonderful job you do too; in fact I think your boss mom needs to up your treats for all your hard work. I don't know whose blessed more-you and your mom. Have a wonderful weekend!
    Wags, Noreen & Hunter

  33. You're a credit to our species Goose and your MOM's church is lucky to have such a good employee.

  34. You're your MOM's Goose writer. Ha woooooo!!!! That's a great one, Goose! I've gotta remember to tell Zim - he'll love that!
    You have an incredible work ethic! Even checking on the inside when you're outside?!? Over and above the call of duty, buddy! I'd say your MOM is in VERY, very good paws!
    Work hard, play hard! (Nap hard!)

  35. Goose, we reckon the place would fall down without your help. You are one busy dog. We're glad you go to work with your mum cause it sounds like there are plenty of jobs to share. Well done mate.
    No worries, and love, Stella and Rory

  36. I keep telling my momma that I would be a PAWSOME addition to her office, but she won't bring me. You look like you do an amazing job. I bet they can't get by without you!

  38. Goose, you are indeed a blessed pup, and we are blessed to be able to count you and your Mom as one of our friends! I want to thank-you both for your kind words that you left on the loss of our boy Sandy. It helps so much to know that our loss is shared by those like you who understand.

  39. Do u has cookies after church? My hoomin does. :)

  40. Wow, what a great thing to be able to go to work with your mom! It looks like you do a great job!

    Nubbin wiggles,

  41. Yes Goose, you are very blessed. We get to go to work sometimes...but, not too often. Something about being hyper terriers...what?

    Wyatt and Stanzie
