    DefaultWhy things take so long.

    I always have a project going on at my house. Yesterdays little task was to install tire chains on my snowblower in preparation of winter. Normally this would take less than a half an hour. Maggie and Daisy love when I'm working in the garage and this time was no different. I usually have them out there with me as long as my projects aren't noisy(power saws)or involve things inappropriate for the girls(paint.paint is very interesting to them).

    It took me almost two hours to install the chains. First I had to place wooden blocks to lift the machine off the ground. Daisy, obviously thought the location was all wrong and moved a block to her mat. After discovering the block missing, I gathered up a different block inwhich Maggie decided she should have. Great everybody have their own block now? Okay lets begin.

    The chains are shipped in a cloth bag that has a sewn end. Off I go to grab some scissors off the bench. Hmmm. Where is the bag of chains? It was right near the snowblower a second ago? I don't bother looking on the bench. I head right for Daisys mat. Yep! Here they are. Various tools get moved for the next few minutes until thats no longer fun.

    The minute both my hands are busy, I get nudged for pets. I take a little time to scritch their necks and finally get back to the task at hand. We're making head way now, one sides done...What? You gotta to go potty? Awright c'mon let's go. Potty always takes longer when your waiting. It's mandatory to sniff every new leaf that fell since the last time out.

    I eventually finish the job and we all head into the house. The first words out of my wife's mouth were. "I never knew anyone who can putter in the garage for so long!"

    I assumed she was talking to the dogs.

    Why of course she meant the dogs! Labs are master putterers, you know.

    I hear you. Our labs are such good little helpers...but when they help us...it seems to take longer.

    You could have told the girls to go help Mom in the kitchen. Labs always like kitchen work better anyway. Picking up dropped food, licking dishes, etc.

    Pitch agrees, Kitchen work, much more fun, unless someone forgets to put the lid on the garbage in the garage.
