A New Career?

barks between beagles, beaverdamusa.com“Boy, that was one restful Memorial Day weekend, huh?”

“Tell me about it. Slept. Ate. Relaxed.”

“But it’s back to the old grind today.”

“You got that right.”

“So what are you gonna do?”

“Well, I’ve already eaten once. I think I’ll sleep and relax for a while.”

“Not me!”

“What do you mean? That’s what we do every day.”

“I mean I want to make a difference. I want to be a seeing-eye dog.”

“Go to sleep, you’re delirious.”

“This crime fighting is making me tired.”
