Worn Out Assistant! Wordless Wednesday

By
Real Estate Agent with HomeSmart Real Estate BR030809000 AZ Broker BR030809000

 

Hi My name is Barney. I am my Mom's assistant and I'm flat worn out! She caught me sleeping in her office today (guilty). I've been so busy scheduling appointments for buyers to view our listings and helping Mom deal with multiple offers. Finally today, I had a break in action and  could spend some time blogging and catching up on my AR duties. I'm a really good assistant, don't you think!

See you later!

Barney

Hi Anna- I've heard of dogged tired and that's what Barney looks like. I think he needs a very special treat.

Oh yes yet another 'special' treat.  He loves toast crusts so every morning he gets a piece of two.  Heaven for him!

That is one very relaxed pooch, Anna!  Don't you wish you could unwind like that?

LOL yes he just plops out wherever he wants and falls asleep.  Makes me tired just looking at him!

Good morning Anna - you have worn the poor little guy out.  It is tough running a busy office.☺️

Good morning, Anna... same daily scene in my office... Bingo spread out on his bed and Mr. Marlow spread out on the easy chair. They are very good supervisors.

I can relate ... that is exactly how I felt yesterday.  The only difference is I did it to myself ... wore myself out.

Hello Barney, you better get back to work that you can ask for a raise soon.   You are lucky to work for a great boss.

Will it kind of goes the other way around. I'm at his beck and call!  Outside?  Treat?  Nap?   Whatever you want furry baby!

Finnegan sends his regards. This is an adorable photo, and I'm with Will. If Barney wants a raise, he's going to have cut his nap time short. So happy to be able to comment on your post, I'm not able to access some of the others.

Barney says HI Finnegan!  So cute......he can fall asleep on a dime, anytime/anywhere!  I seem to be not getting that dog much. Once or twice that's it.  Who knows why. Soon they'll get this thing fixed.

Hi Chris Ann ! Barney (and I ) agree. It can get tiring after dealing with mulitple offers day after day.  Come to think of it....where is that little guy!  Probably sleeping in the other office!!  LOL

Haha this is a daily, as in all day long thing as he's an older dog now.  He still loves to 'go' anywhere in the car and his walks so that's a good thing Laura Cerrano !

Anna Banana Kruchten CRS, CRB, Phoenix Broker - how is Barney doing in this summer heat? Recently I went to a Peach Fest and boy was it hot! I saw a dog wearing the cutest shoes I ever saw and posted his picture too. They really make very stylish shoes for dogs now a days.
