    He does this every morning for me. Normally he runs like a rocket to the paper but me holding the camera distracted him. We couldn't make eye contact like usual.

    We go out, I have him sit and do a "critter check" to make sure no stray dogs or cats are in the yard and to make sure there aren't any people walking their dogs nearby. Just as a precaution. Then I tell him "get the paper" and he'll get it and bring it to me.

    At the end of the video he's giving me the "well, why are we still standing here" look. Usually we'll go right up the steps and back in the house :lol-sign:

    Cute! Awesome. I don't think I really know any dogs that actually fetch the paper, or slippers anymore. :p

    That was great! I don't think I've EVER actually seen a dog get the paper... except of course on TV!

    Gunnar is such a good boy. : )

    Gonzo used to get the paper at my Dad's house, but at our house the paper is always right by the door. I think he misses his morning chore. These workings dogs need their little jobs to stay sane.

    Rufus's chore was to carry the empty plastic kitchen trash can in . He had to go up 5 steps so the can was almost over his head and he loved to growl and hear the sound !
