I think it is clear from the fact that I am making this post right now that I still have the dogs and to be honest I never really thought of getting rid of them. If you look at the posts that I have made in the past (and I have made a lot) you will see how much the dogs mean to me and my family. They have practically become part of the family and they are just as important to the kids as any of their toys. In fact, the kids absolutely adore the dogs and I’m pretty sure the dogs feel the same about the kids and the dogs see themselves as the kid’s friends. It is clear how much the dogs mean to the family and how much we mean to the dogs but that doesn’t really take much away from what I was talking about in my previous post. The dogs have become an absolute nuisance and I have been growing very tired of them. In fact, there was a while I began to really and truly resent the dogs and regretted getting them. They just do too much damage to the home and they cause a lot of issues in the home too that it becomes a real struggle and chore to keep them. It really is a bad thing to think that way too because they are dogs and you could honestly say without sounding stupid that they may not know better.
But I have found a way for me to feel a lot less resentful to the dogs. Although this probably won’t make sense to a lot of people and a lot of people will probably dislike this, I have decided to use the dogs to make some extra money on the side. And in fact, I was not aware of just how much money you can actually make from dogs. You won’t recoup the costs of the dogs themselves but they definitely do a lot to contribute to the dogs living costs. I have started to use the dogs to get parts on advertisements and commercials. I explained a few posts ago about how in demand Empress Labradors are for commercials because of how cute they are considered to be by the average person and I thought to try it. I had a friend that used to use their cats for commercials (this really cute grey tabby who used to get roles for a really big cat food company) and she put me into contact with an agent. Now believe me, I think it’s just ridiculous that an ANIMAL HAS AN AGENT but that is what has happened.
But I got the empress Labradors a few different adverts and they have actually made I kid you not a few thousand for these commercials. Usually the dogs just sit around for the majority of the day, and then I make them either come towards or away from the camera and then for maybe 30 minutes the dog will focus on an object and the crew will just sit there and film it. But that is really it. That is all the dogs do and the commercials pay out big. It is actually ridiculous but I am so glad I decided to do this. People will say that it is a form of animal abuse but it isn’t. If the dogs understood that this is why they are being fed and showered and this is why they get a roof over their heads I am sure they will MORE than be happy to do it. The Empress Labradors on Smallville made a ton of money because the show was on for so long and I think it’s owners actually signed for royalties (which was realistically probably 0.01%) but they are making more than enough for what the dogs actually did. I want to get my dogs a role like that!
Anyways guys, I hope you have been enjoying my blog posts over the last few days!
Just as a side note, we’ve just had our gardens done by Earthcare, and we think they do fantastic Landscaping in Wallington!
