The day we left for Kansas I had to resort to doing dishes in our bathtub. (our sink was having some draining issues). Our large and loveable mutt puppy, Duke, came into the bathroom. He walked around, leaned over the edge of the tub to check out what I was doing, and then exited the bathroom. A few moments later he came back into the bathroom with dog bowl in mouth. Duke then walked up beside me and dropped the bowl into the tub with the other dishes.
Had he been able to speak he may have said something like, "Just trying to help" or "while you're at it. . ."
