Who here has a cat or dog that loves to "help"? Share your stories and pictures if you have some!

This is my cat Biscuit. She likes to help me when I'm at the computer. Sometimes it's a more passive style of help like these pictures, other times she continually walks back and forth on the desk, rubbing on my chin, repeatedly sweeping her tail across my face and stepping on the keyboard creating havoc with whatever I'm working on.

Hi James:   Ha Ha wait till you have a touch screen...  her tail will send all your work spinning off somewhere...   even my newer kindle is subject to kitty help...  they seem to be able to change font size much easier than I can change it back...  The dog is a good girl. All she does is make foolish attempts to chase our volunteer bunny "Peter Rabbit" in the yard. No problem for Peter at all, in fact he seems to rather enjoy it.

Everyone that has a cat has a cat that loves to "help".  Mine particularly loves to help me read.  I'm not sure what I would do without her help to turn the page.  Of course, it's not usually when I'm ready to turn it...

Whenever there is digging to be done, my personal assistant, Maxwell, is never far off.

You should see him go to it with the pickaxe
Blueberry pie is best when it is firm and you can hold in your hand. Smell it. And smell this tiny ad:
Switching from electric heat to a rocket mass heater reduces your carbon footprint as much as parking 7 cars
