Dear Human Beings,

My Human Being is making me work.  I have to get up at the crack of dawn, around 8 am, barely have time to eat and I’m packed in the car.  AND I MEAN PACKED.  I sit hooked into this car seat and I can’t even see out of the window.

When we arrive at the office,  I take my Human Being for a walk so that she won’t need to go to the bathroom all morning.  She needs the exercise too.

Once I’m in the office I have to greet everyone.  They never

Going to greet my next client

have treats for me but I greet them anyway.   I sit in their lap for a while to make them feel good.  Then I go sit on my Human Being’s lap to see them from across the room so I can understand their non-verbal communication, which is very important.

Mentally exhausted
Mentally exhausted

Sometimes it is so boring I can’t stay awake.  No one seems to care.  When it’s time for them to go I have to usher them out.  I want to leave with them but my Human Being always stops me.  All she wants me to do is work, work work: Greet, Jump in lap, Observe non-verbal communication, Sleep, Usher out, Greet, Jump in lap, Observe non- verbal communication, Usher out, Greet, Jump in lap, Observe non-verbal communication, Sleep, Usher out . . .

 It’s mentally exhausting.

There should be dog-labor laws that prohibit us from being exploited.

  1. Dear Freddie Parker Westerfield, you have a very long name. My full name is “Tootsie Dutchess of the Hills” because my breed is from Holland and I live in Hickory Hills. I needed a fancy name for my “papers” what ever that is..You are lucky that you have a job to go to everyday. My job is at home but I need to bark a lot. I hate the mailman, and those garbage men come to our house and steal all our stuff and take it all away in a big truck. I need to chase the cat, and sleep on the bed with my human when she takes a nap. Oh, and I need to patrol the yard to keep squirills away. We had a opposum this winter hanging around…….I set that beast straight let me tell ya! Hasn’t been back. Some of my best work. I am glad that you have adjusted so well, and that your human is behaving. I enjoy mail, so write anytime.
    Tootsie.
    I love the lion tail Baby!

      I hope your Human Beings are appreciative that you work from home and keep them safe from mail, critters and garbage. You’ve taken on a lot of responsibility so it is good you can sleep on the bed when you need a nap.

      You might wish to try some stress reduction techniques, like deep panting, to be able to keep working for a long time.

  3. Dear Freddie Sweetie,
    Are you getting paid for your work? Have you looked at the EAFC? (Employment Application For Canines) Because now that you are working you are entitled to many benefits which include health care and many cookies. MANY cookies and not just the vegan kind either. I know. My moms and dad are getting a little frustrated with me because my job is only to slip out the door and run away and annoy them. I think they are getting cranky. HA HA. Oops, they are not laughing. Oh, and I am being bad, really bad on the leash, I tug and run after stuff cuz mom is too weak to hold me back and dad couldn’t do it either. I am ALL MUSCLE! I heard Mom say “AWW she’s so cute when she sleeps” do you think that’s a compliment or not? Love and cookies, Lexi-Pro

    1. Dear Lexi-Pro, Canine Dog
      I signed an Employment Application for Human Beings when I adopted my Human Beings. There was a clause for lap sitting, sleeping in a proper bed, exercise and meals twice a day. I agreed to give my Human’s all of those if they agreed to share their cookies. So far it is working out except my Human Beings eat more then twice a day.

      I think “AWW she’s so cute when she sleeps” is a manipulation. It is intended for you to hear – which you do – trying to infantilize you. They continue to see you as younger than you really are in an effort to justify your running away.

      You should see a Therapist to find out why you going through an adolescent rebellion.

      1. I think Daddy wants to kick me out yesterday. I have been really, really bad. Mom is on the fence but she’s a softie. Even though I can pull her off her feet and she cries. I can’t help it if she’s a weakling. Tough. I am who I am. LP

          Your brain is not developed yet to where you think about consequences. It will come with time. HOWEVER, you need to COOL IT before you get sent to an Animal Shelter. I’ve been there and trust me it’s NO SHELTER.

          Therapeutically yours,
          Freddie Parker Westerfield, CDT

          P.S. IF your Mom is the one who wants to keep you do NOT call her a weakling and do NOT make her cry.

Here is what we will do when I get there on Tuesday I have a stuffed doggie that looks just like you I will bring it put it on my lap and when your Human Being isn’t looking you jump in the pretty bag that it was in and be perfectly still.

      Did you know that SCIENTIFIC RESEARCH has shown it is detrimental to your immune system to hold secrets. Therefore, if I were to come with you we will have to have full disclosure.

      P.S. The King size bed sounds good. Is breakfast served in bed?

      Luckily I only look at my tail when I’m curled up. It is not very fashionable but when I need to signal it makes a bold statement. I prefer to think of it as a Fredian look in keeping with my chosen profession.

      Sincerely yours,
