I Finally Have A Job - Thankful Thursday

Hi Pals,

I'm so thankful that I finally have a job.   If you all remember when I had my toothies pulled (4 years ago) and it cost so many $$, M &  D told me if they ran out of money in their  retirement, I'd have to support them.   Well, I finally found work.

I am so thankful for my puzzle box cuz then I get M's undivided attention while she makes me work for a treat.   She puts a Greenie in one of the holes of the box and I have to fish it out in order to get paid my treat.    This is not easy because the greenie treat is rather small and gets hung up on the inside right where you pull it out on the side.   She really makes me work hard too. Sometimes I have to try 5 or 6 times.




I can feel it I think!


YAY - Success


Now she's thinking up a new game for me to try.  Stay tuned for that one. This working for a living sure isn't easy.   But  at least I have a job now and I'm thankful for that!

Oh, M updated her bloggy - if you are interested.  "Essential Tremors versus  Parkinson's Symptoms."

This is a Blog Hop started by PepiSmartDog.com.   It's easy and fun - so join us.

Oh how great is that! You are working very hard, Mario and it looks such a fun job. Would you hite me as your assistant?

The Furries of Whisppy said...

A job where you get paid immediately is rather interesting. Especially if payment is in the form of a yummy treat!

Katie Isabella said...

Since you get paid in Greenies, is this what you are giving back to your humans' retirement fund?

Ranger said...

Stay cool,

The Island Cats said...

Our mom did the same thing with our puzzle box. It's hard work finding those treats!!

Cathy Keisha said...

Whoa! They put you to work for a few treats? I gotta have TW talk to M.

Mark's Mews (Ayla, Iza, and Marley) said...

That is a great job to have!

dArtagnan Rumblepurr/Diego Hamlet Moonfur said...

You're a hard workin' fella, Mister Mario. You know what you need? You need a supervisor. I think I'd be a good supervisor, and you'd only need to pay me 3 out of every 5 treats... an excellent deal!

Mr Puddy said...

Do you need a helper ? A team ?
Call me my friend ; )
Love to join

Kjelle Bus said...

That treat puzzle seams to be a fun job to empty :)
XOXO

Spitty-the-Kitty said...

I think if you try 5 or 6 times, you should get 5 or 6 treats!

Clooney said...

Well if you gotta have one of them J-O-B's then I think yours isn't a bad one to have! Hope you have a wonderful week buddy!

Spitty-the-Kitty said...

I KNOW a guy could like STARVE after emptying his tum out like that. Yes, I am happy to report I *DID* get another breakfast. The staff may not be perfect, but she does not want me to get all fainty from hunger!

Smile With Your Tail said...

Katz Tales said...

Hey, terrific job, Mario! Love that puzzle box.

Oui Oui said...

What a great job, Mario! And you hit pay dirt when you finally snag that treat. Oui Oui enjoys her job too. She inspects all boxes for safety and jinxes then tests their durability with her might claws.

The J-Cats said...

Hi, Mario!

Our Human says maybe She'll look out for a puzzle box like this, to keep Us busy and out of mischief (mol).

Enjoy your weekend!
