  1. IT’S A GOOD LIFE

    August 7, 2012 by Mindy the Monkey

    I’ve been lucky enough to meet thousands of people in my job as an Animal Ambassador.  Since I always meet them while I am working at one of our animal shows, parties or events, one of the questions people always ask is what my life at home is like.  So today I thought I’d tell you a little bit about my daily life with dad.

    Just like you, I have free roam of the house. Some of my animal friends have to be separated from each other for safety’s sake, but dad and the dogs and I all get along great and live together in the house.  I love playing with the dogs – they are so much fun!  My favorite thing is to throw the ball for them and have them bring it back to me.  My best friend is Dottie, an Australian Shepherd. We love to curl up together on the couch or a chair after we are all tired out from playing ball.

    Some of the other fun games I like to play are pushing stuff off the table, and switching the lamps on and off.  I also love to sit in the window and feel the warmth of the sun on my fur while I watch all the cars and trucks and people go by.  But even though I love to play and relax, there is always a lot of work to do every day, too.  I sleep with dad, so it is easy to wake him up every morning at sunrise so that we can get an early start on our day and have plenty of time for both work and play.

    Dad and I eat breakfast together, then I get my shower in the sink.  After that we spend several hours feeding, watering and taking care of all of my other animal friends.  They are always so happy to see us in the morning and I am sure it is because they missed me overnight and not because I have a big bowl of food in my hands!  The birds all yell hello and the alligator smiles and even though it is hard work, it is a lot of fun to help dad take care of everybody.

    After everyone is taken care of, dad and I sit down to work in the office together for a while – making calls, setting appointments and planning out the rest of our day.  It is a busy life, but a very good life.  I really enjoy living and working with dad.  Next time I’ll tell you more about taking care of the animals and what we do to get ready for our animal shows, parties, and events – so be sure to check out my blog next week too!
