What are your pet's responsibilities?

One of my cats is required to serve as a mouse pad...


Another is my lab assistant...

They look like they do a great job. My dogs' responsibility seems to be making sure that I don't have any treats. The youngest checks my pockets often, the little pick pocket.

My sheep have the responsibility of ridding our property of vegetation that could give rise to fuel a wildfire; our Aussie is their herder. Our chickens rid us of bugs and provide breakfast, our cat and two Patterdales rid us of unwanted lizards, gophers, and critters that feast on our chickens. Our doves also eat bugs and remaining chicken scratch and provide beautiful song throughout the day.

Our dogs make sure my husband doesn't sneak out of bed at night...one guards his feet, one his back, and our very pregnant dog makes sure our bed isn't stolen each night.

Love my little zoo!

My cat's responsibility is to oversee and supervise my daily chores...plus when I practice my singing he meows along with me.

My Golden, Bosco, is not amendable to any responsibilities, but takes it upon himself to:

---come running up to newbies, and as they bend over to rub his ears, belch without remorse in one's face,

---strategically position himself under any table upon which food is served, waiting for that stray food scrap,

---snores, dreamingly chases rabbits, and babbles loudly while my wife and I attempt to sleep'

---and most embarrassing, waits until all company has arrived to flatulate and promptly leave the room.

In spite of his lack of manners, and various tics, quirks and hang-ups, I love him unconditionally. So I guess that's his only responsibility: to be loved and celebrated as a part of my family.

Well, my dog makes tea and does the hoovering and washing up!

Plus, she's my walking companion as I try to mark up 2,000 miles walked (per year) over the beautiful countryside of Wiltshire, where I live. Keeps me fit.

And the dining table (although technically she is not on the table.... lol)

Mine are magicians. Feed 2 of these every day and dog food disappears like magic.

My 6 year old Shihtzu (Ned) is training my new Lab/Bernese puppy (Nyx) to not chew on the furniture or me. He's a really good disciplinarian. He confuses Nyx sometimes when he's grouchy and growls at her for everything though.
She gets totally out of control at times, so I can't fault him for getting grouchy.....

She's only 11 weeks old so her job right now is to eat bugs that come in the house.
When she's older and bigger her duty will be coyote control.

Beautiful dog. I was looking for a Pyr when i found my Lab/Bernese. I still might get one if I find she needs a big buddy to play with.

Great Pyrenees.
My smallest is 115 lbs, the other is a bit over 140 lbs.

If you have a family, even very small kids, they are big, lovable goofs. Mine don't mind toddlers pulling their hair or even really small ones riding them like a pony. They were originally used to protect sheep and cattle from bears and wolves, so they have a "protect the herd" mentality, [ you and your family being the herd ] and are vicious fighters, but not unless provoked or needed. The thing I really love about mine is they are extremely protective while in the house or inside the fence. Take'em out on the street for a walk....lovable goofs who don't mind strangers petting them.
God help you if you come in the house and they don't know you.

I think the biggest responsibility of pets is for them to give Love. However to them it is not a chore, it is natural to give Love. When they recieve it back, you can just feel the good vibes they get from that! They send them back to us and all is well with the world!! Syx...

Both my pomeranians are great watch dogs. They don't miss anything. If an owl farts in tree down the street, they let me know all about it. They're also stone cold mouse hunters. The smaller is also in charge of locating any unattended food-say an Arby's left on a tv tray during a brief return to the kitchen. Should she find any, she promptly confiscates it.
