Max has a new job: he’s my paper boy. Every morning he brings in the newspaper for me. Our front yard isn’t fenced, so I put him on a leash for this activity. He does the job himself though: scanning the yard for the paper, going over to it, picking it up, and carrying it into the house. He looks forward to his job every morning, eagerly waiting for his leash at the front door.

It’s hard to hold a leash and a camera at the same time, so we recreated our morning activity in the fenced backyard where I could get a few photos.

Here’s Max picking up the newspaper he found.
