Delusions of grandeur......

With less than 5 weeks to go till the Thame Fair, I called an impromptu business breakfast meeting this morning, in order to rally the troops.

Small Dog is always a reluctant attendee at business meetings, especially if there are no tempting treats, but give her her due....... she was there, right on time, bright eyed and bushy-tailed.

After running through the To Do lists, and allocating the various tasks for this week, Small Dog asked for an item to be added to 'Any Other Business', which we allowed.

Taking centre stage (well, the middle of the rug) and commanding our full attention, she suggested that we initiate an 'Employee of the Month' award, and put herself forward for January.

After we'd finished laughing uproariously for a good ten minutes, during which Small Dog eyed us contemptuously, I pointed out that her track record as an employee was less than glittering, and enquired why she thought she merited the award. 

This was playing right into her paws.


Straight off she recounted her 'brilliant' marketing idea for 'Dog Eared Dolls', which admittedly we had scotched immediately.
Then she reeled off her current 'onerous' duties within the company..... Business Mascot, Sleeping Partner, Clapper Dog and Tea Dog.  There followed a spirited discourse over the latter, and the fact that she had never, ever made either of us a cup of tea, which, after an increasingly acrimonious altercation, she did finally accept.


Although she did point out that she was always there, or thereabouts, if there were ever tea (and possibly biscuits) so surely that counted for something.


It is gratifying to know that Small Dog is putting so much thought into ways to increase our business revenues, not to mention morale-boosting ideas, but I have to admit, I'm not too sure about this whole 'Employee of the Month' malarkey.


However, I'm sure I haven't heard the end of it..........

First you improve my day no end with tales of SD - then ruin it with the reminder about how long we haven't got to get stock together for The fair!!
I propose SD as Marketing and Promotions Director! Lol

Our two small cat-employees, after reading about SD, have also declared themselves employees of the month, every month, and will not accept less. They do, however, bring us their feathers and catnip mice for tea. Thanks for the delightful whimsey!

Neenie....

So it's not just Small Dog then?
Thankfully, SD's hunting expeditions are rarely successful and the most she's likely to bring home are twigs woven into her fur or the gamey tang of fox stink.
Eeeewwww......
