Apologies for any unprofessional e-mails
By Ben Samann
Spring is here, and with spring comes putting in docks and other outdoor work. Yesterday, the team and I were working on several docks. The resort dogs, Toby and Daisy, were around as well, being their usual rambunctious selves.
Over the course of the day, shirts and sweaters would come on and off, and invariably, Toby would steal mine. It’s kinda his shtick – “if you won’t pay attention to me, I’ll hang out with your stuff.” Retriever indeed.
At the end of it all, I noticed my phone was missing from where I thought I had left it. I looked, but it was nowhere to be found. Calling it didn’t help, since it’s always on silent. I finally realized that Toby must have run off with it.
I went through most of the day without it, and warned the staff that I wasn’t getting text messages. More importantly, any requests for treats or belly rubs should be verified with me.
At around 10 pm, I called the phone and looked for the light. I found it in the tall grass, most of my data used up on pictures of tennis balls and new dog beds, but luckily, I don’t think he figured out how to write e-mails.
If, however, you received any suspicious messages from me, please let me know. I will be forwarding any Amazon orders to Toby as well.
