It’s a warm summer day, and my owner is finally taking out the lawnmower from the garage. Guess he finally listened to me. I have been telling him the grass needed a cut out there in the front yard.
Now that the big machine is out in the open, I’m as excited as I can be. Don’t get me wrong, I love the smell of freshly cut grass about as much as the next dog (not that much), but it’s the lawnmower I have eyes for. That thing is perfect for my size, and my owner lets me sit in the driver’s seat, so I’m technically in charge of mowing the lawn, which is pretty cool.
I have seen taxi, bus, and Uber drivers, but I have never seen a lawnmower driver. Does that mean my job is special? I guess it does. It’s certainly fun and relaxing. All I have to do is sit lazily in my seat and make sure the mower is going in the right direction and cutting the grass properly. It’s a piece of cake.
The only thing is… where’s my compensation?! I know I’ve heard my human brothers and sisters chatting about something called an allowance…
Oh well, this is the easiest job I have ever had. All I have to do is make sure my paws are firmly placed on the lawnmower handle to keep myself steady. The machine is moving at a nice, slow, and enjoyable pace. After all, I don’t want to rush the process.
The soft breeze feels nice as it ruffles and cools my fur. I look this way and that, watching to make sure the lawnmower is covering all the spots. My tongue lolls out as the lawnmower goes in a straight line then spins around. The movements are so relaxing. I can do this all day.
Catching a ride on the lawn mower and cutting grass is fun and all in a day’s work for this doggie. And when I’m done, at the very least I know there will be a bowl of cold water and a few treats waiting just for me. Then afterward, we will sit on the patio and watch the sunset while my owner sips on a few more cans. Sure, I will miss the lawnmower once it’s back in the garage, but I know soon we will bring it out again. The grass around here likes growing fast, and it’s up to me to make sure it’s trimmed back to size. What can I say? Life is definitely good.
