As most of you have friend, Jack (click on his name to check it out....), is planning to come and live with me.  So Beth said we had to make the house presentable for him.  I guess that means I have to dust....
I don't know if any of you have ever had to do this awful task but it is hard work.  And besides that it is Coleridge's chore....not mine!  But he is just laying around doing nothing!
I had been at it for about 8 1/2 seconds and I could hardly stand it anymore!
I just had to take a rest!
Beth kept after me and I finally got it all done! 
Now the house is "presentable" for when Jack shows up.
Beth said I did such a GOOD job that maybe that should be one of my regular chores.  I must of had a look of shock on my face when she said that because when I looked at Coleridge -- this is what I saw....

Not funny, Coleridge!

Later -- Remington -- I do not want to dust any more -- out!

I thinks you a most wonderful job at your chores. But, I thinks you need to haves a chit chat with da kitteh kat....hey, that rhymes.
Who is Jack?

Martha and Bailey said...

Remington, our mum is asking if you would have the time to drop in on us in Scotland.
You did such a great job and the look on Coleridge's said it all - you are an amazing dog.

Maggie Mae said...


From what I can see your house looks very neat and tidy....great job! Do you do windows? :)

Woofs and Licks,
Maggie Mae

PS Coleridge looks like a very nice kitty

Madi and Mom said...

Rem you are absolutely the most multi-talented fellow we know!!! Now Coleridge...uuuummmm....he appears to be snoopervising all your hard work.
You should demand 2 banana splits after dusting under duress!!
Hugs Madi and Mom

Sallie said...

What a great note from Jack! :)

The 'splorin' Wolfies said...

we don't bother. dust bunnies are part of our family!

Erin @ The Impatient Gardener said...

Isn't that just like a cat to lounge around "supervising"?

The dusting will be worth it .. you'll have an awesome time with Jack!

Gus said...

Amazing! And muzzer says you can drop by our house any time. We have dust bunnies worthy of a doggie your size!


Frankie Furter said...

I don't have to dust butt I do have to do Floors. You did a pawsome job. It looks very much hard.
Now that Coleridge guy... I think he gave you one of those nasty raspberry thingys... Pbbbbbbt.
I don't think you should have to endure that kind of treatment.

Kathy said...

I hate to dust,too, Remy! It just comes back again!
You get banana splits?! You lucky dude!

JC said...

She is torturing you isn't she ?

Maybe you could use your tail to dust ... Maddy Jean, my Golden, sure knows how to swipe things off a coffee table with her tail.

I can't believe your cat didn't help you .. LOL ... of course not ... cat rule and dogs drool.

So when is Jack coming over ?

♥I am Holly♥ said...

You sure are doing a great job of dusting Remington!! Why is the cat on the floor rolling around and sticking it's tongue out at you? Not fair! Next time make the cat do the dusting and you lay around and supervisor!! Lots of love, Debbie and Holly

Ludo van Doggy said...

Now that you got so good at that, you could come dust my house if you likes?

Gloria said...

Well it sure looks like you did a good job anyway! I'd say it was time to bite that cats tongue now!!!

Deborah said...

Geez, I wish my dogs dusted!!!

Mango said...

I think your time would be better spent preparing peanut butter nommy treats and whatnot. I don't really know Coleridge, but he looks like he could do some dusting. Just spray a little endust on him and let him roll around the house.


Brenda's Arizona said...

Rem, I/we are with you. Dusting is over-rated. Why dust when one swat of your tail can clean any surface?

Nadine, Chewy and Lilibell said...

Remington, you did such a good job with dusting, Mom was wondering if you could come over and do our house??

And that cat, how dare he stick his tongue out at you, he should be doing his share of the housework instead of lazing around and snoopervising you!!

Waggles & Chi kisses, Chewy & Lilibell

Sam said...

I think you will enjoy having Jack stay with you - all this hard work will be worth it!


Ina in Alaska said...

Our dusting person retired a few years ago and we have not dusted since!! HA !! Just kidding!!! xoxo

Rambo said...

Wow! You dust?? That's amazing. I'm sure my G-Mom would love to have you over to our house to dust. She hates it. I have never tried. It would be kinda hard since I am a teeny dawg.
Have fun with Jack!


brooke said...

hahah Remington you are so cute! And so is Coleridge!
Dusting is the worst chore ever! I hope you don't get stuck doing it again!
Have fun with Jack! I think Darwin wants to come for a visit too! You get the best treats!

Busy Buttons said...

Oh, the nerve of that kitty! My goodness! I don't know how you deal with that, my friend...

By the way, thanks for voting for me in the bath contest!

Cat said...

Hey Remsters, you are such a good 'duster' maybe you could come over and dust our house!! We pay in dog food....what's your price my man? We won't snoopervise...too much....we are really lousy dusters unless to be a 'duster' means to put dust everywhere in which case we are REALLY good!! haha!! Purrs to you and Coleridge from Lautrec and Tiny

Leo and mom said...

Hey Remy,
Our cats always find a way to scatter when it's time to do chores, in fact so do the kids!

Jack will be so happy that you went to all the trouble to clean for him.
As for Coleridge......I think it's time for a kitty time out for not doing what he was asked.

I agree that all your hard work deserves a banana split. I had some peanut butter and banana toast for breakfast today and it sure was wonderful.

Take care, say Hi to Jack for me and have a great day.
Your BroLeo.

Bruschi said...

BOL! A whole 8 and 1/2 seconds! Wow that would make me want to quit dusting too! Glad you managed to get it all done, but that evil kitty of yours really has some nerve! Silly kitty!!

MISTAYA said...

I have heard M.O.M. saw that if would be an advantage if I did have a longer tail so I could at least dust the coffee table and the low shelves and such. And after reading your dilemma I sure am glad I have just a stub of a tail!
But I hope you have a wonderful time with Jack. Hugs and wags, Mistaya

Jacqueline said...

MOL!...Our Mommy says cleaning is no fun, so we try to nap through it when we're not running to hide from the big sucking machine...Good job Rem; Coleridge is a silly kitty!...Get some rest sweetie...xo...Calle, Halle, Sukki

Lucy the Cat said...

I've never dusted anything in my life. In fact, I do just the opposite. You did a really good job it seems, but it looks like maybe Coleridge is the smart one. You're a very good doggie, though, and I know Jack will have a blast with you.

the booker man said...

ewww, dusting?! remington, i think that is totally lame-o. i think you should hide all the dust cloths so you nevarrr have to dust again!
when is jack coming? ya'll are gonna have tons of funsies!
the booker man

Jazzi said...

Maybe you can make a deal. Trade the dusting for ummm the table, or cleanin...floors, or help clean the dishes!! That stuff sure beats dustin...If nothing else works, start sneezing and go with the allergy bit from the dust, it works every time!! Good luck BUd.


Elizabeth said...

Looks like you did a fantastic job cleaning up!

Elizabeth & Luna

Ruby and Penny said...

Hi Remington.
You're a very good cleaner upper. We don't do chores. Our job is to look cute.
Love Ruby & Penny

Khyra The Siberian Husky And Sometimes Her Mom said...

Woo are a great representative of a working breed!

I'm glad to see woo know all about pacing yourself!


Dory and the Mama said...

Got to watch those kitties....


Anya said...

You did a wonderful job Remington :))
Big hug for you

Aksharaa said...

Hey Remington,That was a pawsome job u did. I dont think u can find many dawgs even willing to think about dusting. On the contrary most of us jsut fills the house with all our excess fur.Now, we hav our Mummy pretty well trained in this dusting thing. so it is ok.
and we think u should have a good talk with coleridge.something isn't right here, We feel!
Btw, thanx for ur concern. Buddy is doing fine now and is his boisterous self!

wags, Ginger

Junior and Orion said...

Jack looks like a fine woofie. We bet you two will have lots of fun!

You did such a great job dusting....all we would do is leave our pawprints in the dust. ;)

We would like to see Coleridge a bit more. Maybe he needs his own blog?

Yep, a nap is always called for after working so hard!

little princess Luna~ said...

oh remington you are sucha hard worker--ms. beth is very lucky to have you around!!

you deserve a big (little) hug--*HUG* :)


JD and Max said...

Hiya Remington, oh FH so loved this post that she's read it like a squillion times! The photo of you 'collapsed' after all that hard work is wonderful and Coleridge had us falling over we were giggling so much! You're such a hard worker - good on you! Oh, and your photo yesterday is superb - gosh, you are SO patient!! Schnauzer snuggles - JD and Max.

Anonymous said...

Unbelievable!!! How can you put up with being bossed around by bipeds and katz??? I must say the Coleridge shots were precious. In any case, job well done.

Teddy Bear said...

Are you excited about having a new brother???:) You are so sweet to clean and dust to welcome Jack to his new home.:)

Siku Marie, White Dog said...

I don't think Jack would have minded the dust...Quinn certainly didn't when he came to live with us. Maybe Coleridge would have a different idea if the NEXT time you did your dusting using HIM as the "swiffer!"

For the Love of Dogs said...

Can you do my house next? I'll get you a big juicy bone! Ok, fine, but you sure do look super cute dusting!

JackDaddy said...

OMGoodness!!! Thank you for doing so much work for us. Maybe I can talk the tall guy into bringing me up for a visit anyway! I would love to see your whole family and all the wonderful places you get to go! Thank you for being such a good friend!!

Keiko (from Kitty Trio) said...

Hi Remington! Nice to meet you and thank you so much for dropping by our blog! We'd never met a pup through the blogosphere so we are very excited!
You look like you do such a great job.
My cousin Caesar (mummy's mum's dog) is a dalmatian and you should see how HE cleans the house when mama is away. I don't think his idea of neat is quite the same as his mum's. haha!
Purrs, Keiko Kenji & Pricilla

Sweet Praline said...

Coleridge has the right idea!

kissa-bull said...

wowie coleridge sure ish lotsa help aint he?
next time dont do it so good remy then they wont ask you to do it again, plus you should toot while cleaning like every 5 seconds and im sure they'll stop asking you to help

Sierra Rose said...

Oh Remington!! It doesn't always pay off to do a good job now does it? Can you come over and do a little dustin' here?

Hugs and snaggle-tooth kisses,
Sierra Rose

Mr Koda MD said...

Just seeing the pictures made me exhausted!

Mum wants to know... will you come do our dusting too?



The Army of Four said...

Hee hee hee! That's one cheeky kitty cat, Remington!
Don't work too hard!

Sagira said...

Remington...just start sneezing and they will think you're allergic and then you will not have to dust anymore! :)
