Supervisor Chewy and the New Storage Unit

Chewy loves to supervise his humans. He watches us vacuum, following the evil device from room to room to keep an eye on its activities, while still maintaining a safe distance. He inspects all packages, shopping bags and sometimes even coats that enter the house. He also makes sure to watch us while we eat so he can get a share of all the good stuff. One more thing he enjoys supervising is furniture assembly:
This time we got a shiny, new teal storage unit from IKEA, and of course Chewy was in on the action. We don't have a coffee table because Chewy likes to launch himself on and off the couches, and there's nothing between the couches because he likes to hop from one to the other. So, I finally decided to get something to put against the wall for setting down food/beverages, and with bonus storage! 

Chewy takes supervising very seriously, and is prone to micromanaging:

Inspecting the box

Tasting the box

Unpacking the box
!!! Always be sure to keep small parts away from your pets !!!

Reading the instructions

Watching from above

Taking all the credit

Modeling "his" work

Final inspection

Project complete!

This storage unit was much more difficult to assemble than I expected! It took a lot of force to keep the seams tight, and I even cracked the coating in one spot from hitting it too hard (but it's hidden against the wall!). It was definitely more fun with Chewy around, though. His silly antics always lighten up the mood!

Do you have a 4-legged micromanager in your house?


  1. It's always nice to have a helper!! :D

  2. Oh my gosh, do we ever. There isn't a thing in our house that wasn't properly snoopervised or licked.

  3. Chewy, if you were a cat, you'd be in that big box!

  4. Hey Chewy, good job building that box! BOL

  5. Good work, Chewy! I personally like to micromanage daddy-dog when he is working in the garage! It's a tough job, but we dogs have to do it.
