Dear Kasey--I need your help. My wife is out of town and I am letting the dogs lick my plate clean after dinner. Do you think I should fess up? You see, if I ate something sticky, nothing beats a dog for that prewash prep. Then its like SWIPE SWIPE with a sponge and clean!
Oh my! Thank you for allowing me to offer up all of this helpful advice. It gives my life purpose. Ok. On with the advice.
There's nothing shameful about that. Absolutely nothing to fess up. If you are feeling that you need to clear your conscience of this, you can remind her that the Flintstone's had an octopus doing all of their dishes. If that's okay then I don't see what's wrong with your little friends getting an extra treat AND helping you out in the process. It's a win-win.
Much like me and my doling out of advice, this helps give the dogs a sense of purpose. Would you want to take that away?
