CANINE UBER OPERATOR

I’m a Canine Uber Operator! That’s what I told the lady at the Gladys Knight concert last weekend when she asked –

so what are you doing now?

CANINE UBER OPERATOR

I could have said –

I drive Doodles around town.

But on a whim I decided to “jazz” my title up a bit, make it sound a little more intriguing.

WHAT’S MY JOB LIKE? –

It’s not bad. He needs me, and I don’t mind helping out. His paws can’t reach the gas or brake pedals, therefore he’s always appreciative when I agree to transport him.

First stop – Starbucks #needyouask

He prefers to place his own order (one time I didn’t get it right) #pickydoodle

A guy named Aaron was working the window. Since Harley hadn’t seen him before he insisted on a lick before allowing me to drive off #doodletastetest

After his whipped cream fix we were off to the hospital for a little pet therapy, but first he had a staff meeting with the Volunteer Services Director Kelly. He wanted to discuss the selection of pup treats in the break room…

Next it was upstairs for him to visit some lil humans…

My job description does not include accompanying him away from the vehicle – but I have to tag along because he can’t reach the elevator buttons.

Harley doesn’t comply with core working hours. He stays as long as he’s needed, turning not so good days into lasting happy moments…

And patients aren’t the only recipients to “feel the Doodle love”, he makes sure he spends time with those human angels called “surgeons”

They may LOOK like clowns to you, but to Harley, Dr’s Ladybug and Lovebug are Executives in the field of laughs and smiles…

Our ride home is usually a quiet one, not sure if he’s reflecting on his day, or critiquing my driving…

So that’s what I’m doing now, and while the pay is nonexistent the dividends are priceless!

    Mom says she is our chauffeur because she is always driving us to classes and appts.

    This is absolutely adorable. My role with my dogs is all encompassing, but hasn’t involved Uber for a while. We’re having record rainfall right now so no wet paws in my car.

    I love that you do therapy work with Harley. I thought Scout would be a good candidate until someone tried to pet him and he backed up and barked aka gave the man a piece of his mind.

    LOL

      Not my Scout! I can’t believe that! But when you get your Goldendoodle – you can start taking him to pet therapy! #startingarumor

    Way to spread the joy, Harley! Keep up the good work. Like you, us therapy dogs do all the work…the moms just drive.
    Your fur-iend,

      LOL – but I still think we play an important role Monika – at least until they start driving themselves!

    That sounds like a wonderful job, for both of you. I love the whipped cream fix Harley! I understand you completely on that one.

      Heather I wish I could video him with the kids (but I can’t) he’s so gentle with every move, and he’s patient with all of them. I am so filled with joy watching him “do his thing!”

    THose are some wonderful photos! Though now Amarula is insisting we go through the drive through at Starbucks so that she can personally order a latte with a shot of tuna oil!

      Harley’s okay with just a cup of whipped cream! Try the drive-thru, we’ve never been to one that the folks working the windows don’t like dogs. They’ve all enjoyed taking Harley’s order!

    Harvey is pretty lucky to have his own driver! What he does at the hospital is just amazing. I’m sure that there are some people whose lives will be forever touched by him.

      So much fun for me to watch all the lil people smile and laugh when they see him Robin. He’s got a gift and I love taking him.

    I am pretty sure he is critiquing your driving. LOL. This post was hysterical. He’s lucky to have such a dedicated assistant.

      I agree with you Pip – I think he was seriously watching the road and checking my speed. Glad we made you chuckle today! Feel free to share us with your friends. Everyone needs to smile 🙂

    What a Doodle-rific job! I think he is reflecting on his trip. They know when they are making people happy, especially when the humans are sick. ♥

    What a joyful, sweet post <3 Love this so much! And sounds as though your pup is spreading the love everywhere.

    Also he may be critiquing your driving, hard to tell :p LOL, that's usually the face Buster makes when I'm behind the wheel too. Punk! Thanks for the whipped cream reminder from Starbucks. Heading there shortly!
