Jumpy is smarter than a 5th Grader!


My sister sent me this YouTube video. I wrote a piece of flash fiction to go along with it.



A Day In The Life of Mr. Jumpy
Subtitle: If I Had I Dog Like Jumpy, I'd Teach Him to Clean My House 


Jumpy, dishes. 
Wash, wash, wash. Rinse. Dry, dry, dry.
Good, boy

Jumpy, laundry.
Fold, fold, fold.
Atta, boy!

Jumpy, toilet.
Slurp, slurp, slurp.
No, Jumpy, no! For god's sake, no! I mean clean the bowl!
Woof!
Scrub, scrub, scrub
That's more like it. Mama loves, Jumpy!
