Jake & Skipper (#3)

Jake is our Golden Retriever.  He LOVES people food.  We think this is because he thinks he IS people.  And, it doesn't help that we treat him as such here.  It's just how we roll.  So, Jakey helps me load the dishwasher.  That means, he is the pre-rinse cycle.  Evidently, he now feels this is in his job description and he wouldn't want to shirk his responsibility, now would he?  So, I happened to place a dish in the dishwasher without it passing his inspection first.  He promptly inserted his head and shoulders into the dishwasher to take care of the situation.  In the process, he was dislodging other neatly stacked dishes.  Mommy scolded him.  Of course, his ears went down and he tried to apologize.  But, Mommy is somewhat cold toward his apologies, since he is sometimes a repeat-offender.  Mommy quickly gave him a sermonette on repentance and the fruit of repentance.  "Jakey, why don't you show me some fruit of repentance some time?"  To which, Skipper (#3) loudly piped up, "Mommy, Jakey CAN'T!" 

PS - I do apologize for the formatting issues showing up in the "Things Being a Mom Taught Me" series.  I have not been able to resolve these issues thus far.
