WOW #57: Overworked Hound

I can't BELIEVE how busy I've been! I'm EXHAUSTED!!! I had no idea doing Auntie A's job as well as mine would take up so much of my spare time. I can barely get in my morning and afternoon naps!

I've decided that I should start dressing better for work so I'm trying out the tie thing.

It wasn't so bad as I thought it might be.

Mummy and Auntie M said I looked very distinguished and businesslike. Auntie A said so too when she got home and saw the pictures Mummy sent her. I think I'd like to have a blue one too. I can't wear the same one EVERY day after all! The red one was my Grandpa's. He used to dress up for work too!

Not only did Auntie A go to the bank every day, she also kept track of inventory for the dealership. I have to do that now, so yesterday I went out to check on the cars.

Okay, here's a row of cars. Let's see how many..., two, five...,twelve...well that's not working...

Okay, so maybe if I count how many of each color...there's a red one and one, two, black ones and a sort of tan one (what? oh, Mummy says that one's grey...Is "grey" a different color than "gray"?) and another lighter "grey" one (does that count as another color?) and uh...another black one and ANOTHER black one...that makes.........

DOES ANYBODY KNOW WHAT COMES AFTER THREE? GRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!! This is a hard job! I wish Auntie A hadn't gone away!! Silly open mortgages!

The best part is the bank trip and you know what? Mummy FORGOT to take me Monday and yesterday! She can't possibly think I can manage the car AND do the banking! Today though, she remembered and so off we went to the bank! Yay!

Here we the bank window. I just LOVE bank windows!

"Yes, I'd like to make a withdrawal please. TWO cookies today."

SIIIIIIGHHHH!!! Sometimes it takes SOOOOO long to process these things! Mummy told me Auntie A works for our bank, but I didn't see her today. Maybe I will next time I need to go inside.

We didn't get to go to Five Guys after the bank, but with all that rain it really wasn't a very good day for it. It was raining and cold and yucky! Probably we'll be going tomorrow. After all, it's part of our routine, right?

Auntie A says she hasn't closed any mortgages yet. She has to learn how they do it at this bank first. How many different ways can there be to close something? I mean she and Mummy are both very good at closing doors, surely mortgages (whatever they are) aren't THAT different! Anyway, I'm guarding her desk for her in case she comes back. I'm not going to let ANYBODY else have it! It's Auntie A's, so there!!


  1. Bentley, We are sorry that Auntie A left and feel terrible you are now overworked. Bernie is thisclose to applying for Auntie A's position, but he found out that he could only have one break so that changed his mind. We hope things get easier for you and you look so handsome in your tie!! Although we wish Auntie A happiness and success in her new position, we also secretly wish she comes back to your dealership so we can see your smile again! Love, Vicki and Bernie

  2. Thanks Ms. Vicki and Bernie! I wish Auntie A would come back too! I'm learning to be a salesdog now though that should help! Maybe I can get us more business and she'll be able to come back!
