Bo does his part to help out in the kitchen (our dishwasher needs all the help it can get). In fact he gets really impatient if the dishes aren't cleared in a timely manner. Tonight I noticed that when I put a drippy plate in rack and the gravy dripped on the door he pushed the rack in to reach the gravy on the door. Then I stuck the greasy pan in the back of the washer and he pulled the rack out to lick it. Maybe I should get him a stepladder and let him just stand at the sink and do the dishes.
I hope this doesn't dissuade any of our dinner guests from coming back again.
