The Seal of Approval

January 15, 2010 at 5:06 am 31 comments

I like it!Mom was cleaning closets and I was helping.  When she feels the urge to purge (and clean and straighten) she usually takes a nap and waits until the urge passes.

But, for some reason she was MOTIVATED.  Did I mention I was helping?

Readers with very good eyes will notice that there is a bottle of glass cleaner that appears to be coming out of my tail area. It is not. It is on the steps, behind me waiting patiently with the other cleaning things.

First we remove, and sort. Then we clean. Then we put back. And in the middle we play. That’s what we were doing in the picture.

If I remember correctly, my sister (the girl person) found the gloves and put them on to see if Mom would notice. I am so happy when people notice me.

I think I look like the very noble creature, the seal. The black flippers are very atractive on me.  I approve of them. I approve of most things. Therefore, in this picture, you may think of me as the Seal of Approval.

Sadly we had to go back to cleaning.

No gloves were harmed in the making of this blog.

Respectfully submitted and awaiting your approval,
Madison T. Dog

    Madison , you are just terrific. If I tried half the things with my Andy that your mom does with you he would be very upset with me.

    Madison,

    You’re a better golden dog than I am. I’d have those gloves ripped off in no time–unless I got lots of attention while I was wearing them.

    I think it is a very “fetching” look Madison. Any chance you might be able to convince my fur-kids that wearing human things is cute? They currently resist all my efforts. Of course they are felines which may explain a lot ………

    Madison: You are one of the most patient “people” I have ever “met”. Do you have a much fun as your family seems to, always dressing you for events, or just to let us know how great a person you are.

    Madison,
    I thought you were using your gloves to assist with glass cleaning–
    I,too, have been hit by the cleaning bug this week. I have moved half of the stuff out of my sewing room to sort and remove. Thus far, there has been some sorting, very little removing, and lots of, “wow–I forgot I had that” comments made. My husband was hiking the Grand Canyon and I thought I’d be able to complete this project before he returned. Well, he’s back and I’m not finished sorting-removing-reorganizing. Oh, well.
    Here’s a cyber pat to you and your Mother–Keep up the good work!

    Deb Divine
    Best wishes

    Madison,
    We just think you look great with your seal flippers. And, it is soooo nice to help Mom clean and organize. Our Mom doesn’t like to clean and organize much so we always are around when she gets in the mood to “help”. Like you, we always give her a “break” and play with her. It helps the whole process and who doesn’t like an extra belly rub or ball throw! (Sometimes, though, she gets so distracted she doesn’t get anything more done…….oh, well)

    Best wishes for the new year, Madison. Mom can’t seem to find many blogs written by us dogs and we always enjoy yours!

    Sounds like you & Mom even had a fun day cleaning. Maybe I should borrow my sister’s child, “Zippy”. She likes to check out the insides of shoes, purses & boxes that smell like snacks.

    You definitely have my seal of approval, Madison! My standard poodle would give me such a look if I tried that on her. She tries very hard to be a scruffy sheep-girl for her Daddy.

    Much love,
