An Inter-office Memo from Darla

ON MY WAY TO WORK

SERIOUSLY, I AM SWAMPED HERE!

THAT'LL BE $12.50 PLEASE, SIR

HEY, I'M ON MY BREAK!

GREAT, NOW MY CELL PHONE IS RINGING

THIS WORK THING IS EXHAUSTING

Hello Everyone,

It's me. Darla Rose Caprine.

Well, it was bound to happen. My Maa came yesterday and told me I had to go to work. Wouldn't it figure. And on the nicest day of the year, too!

So, off we went in the car....I'm real good at it now....and drove all the way to work. It was almost 82 degrees in our town and Maa was mad that she didn't have a sun dress in the car. She said my GIRLS RULE sweatshirt was too hot so I'd have to just wear my diaper because 'they have carpet at work.'

Everyone at work was real nice. They had snacks in all the offices but I politely declined until I got to the Dog License office where they have.....I am not making this up.....DOG SNACKS! Dog snacks are my favorite treat in the whole, wide world!

Now, those of you who know me know that I was fond of sharing snacks with my big brother, Yellow Dog, when I got to live at home with my family. So I ate the snack right up but it made me remember that I miss my big brother. Well, and my Big Sister too, even though she's a cat. I like going places with my Maa, like the Tractor Store where Maa always has her hands full keeping me out of the grain sacks and forgets to take pictures.
Going places with my Maa makes me feel like being at my home again.

Anyway, I decided that I'd liked the Dog Licence office the best and so they put me to work straight away. There was an awful lot of paper that needed to be shredded but you have to be careful elsewise the Animal Control guy will get huffy if you shred the wrong ones.

Then there was the customer service and the computers. And then the posing for my employee pictures. I was exhausted by the time we got back to Maa's office which, I have to say, has the neatest stuff in it and reminds me of my Family Home. So I got out a dolly and took a snooze while Maa finished her work.

All in all it was a nice day. And being with my Maa is what I love most. On the way home Maa told me how proud of me she was for working so hard at all my jobs. But I figure it was no big deal. Anytime I get to spend with my Maa seems to make her very, very happy.

Toodle-oo for now friends or, as we say if the business world, we'll get back to you.

love and goatie kisses,
xox

As a famous SpokesGoat I know all about hard work. Good for you for trying to make a living instead of mooching off of others like certain goats named Abby.
