Rusty’s Busy Day

Rusty on the couch

Rusty here. People always ask how I come up with all of the crazy things that I do.

Well it is a lot of work, let me tell you. I am one very busy pup coming up with my zany antics.

This may look easy, but I am a professional.

    I know how it is, Rusty. You do one funny thing, and then they expect the next thing to be funnier. And on it goes. Has to cause you quite a bit of stress! Thats what naps are for, Buddy!

    No doubt about it, Rusty, you ARE a pro! Pups and those without serious training with a master should not attempt to do what you do!

    yes, you are living out all those dreams of yours

    Stop on by for a visit

    Few humans are aware of the planning necessary to carry out doggie duties.

    You just “keep on keeping on” with what you do best, Rusty. That’s all any self-respecting Sibe can be expected to do!

    Love your antics!!!

    Sometimes being a member of the working breed is very demanding,isn’t it, Rusty? We can’t wait to see what new and crazy thing you do this year!

    It’s that whole “working breed” thing, isn’t it, Rusty?

    Rusty, you make it look so easy! We’d never have guessed it was so tiring. Do you work a lot of overtime?

    wooo Rusty every genius needs his down time and usually during the down time the best ideas come to him. You sure are a professional 🙂
