Sammy and Charlie love to "help" with the laundry. Usually, this means re-combining the piles of dirty clothes after I separate them or unfolding things, or knocking over my nice stack of folded towels, and then unfolding them. I think they get more points if something lands on the floor.
Today, I had a load of whites and two loads of towels to fold. I tipped the basket with the whites and one of the loads of towels over and Sammy promptly climbed in it. This is not something I have seen him do before-and he will be 6 next week! Poor Charlie had to settle for what spilled over onto the bed until I got the second load of towels out of the dryer and he decided that was a much better pile to help with. Whoever said cocker spaniels are perpetual 2 year olds was right! Sammy wasn't about to give up those last two towels for anything.
