Subi Says...

Being a proper host to out of town guests is very important -- especially for social lovebugs like me. Proper guest reception begins before the guest even arrives.

First things have a to change the sheets on the bed. Grandma says, for extra special guests like our Japanese friends, we buy all new sheets.

An especially good canine citizen will not hesitate to jump right in a help with the labor...

Grandpa says there's a fine line between helping and getting in the way...but I don't know what he's talking about.

This is a picture of me and my new friend Yuui. Yuui and her brother Toui brought me PRESENTS! I got a bumblebee stuffie and hot-dog stuffie and they are tough, tough, tough. My favorite.

As you can see, I did not forget to offer to pre-rinse Yuui's morning yogurt. She was happy to let me do the dirty work.
So remember Kids, Subi Says that being a thoughtful host/hostess is another way to be good canine citizens. Good Canine Citizenship doesn't happen overnight. Be vigilant and persistent because these are skills that take practice and patience.

I'd love to hear your stories of when you were a good canine citizen.


  1. Good job with the guests reception! Hope you all have a great time! You sure is a good canine citizen!

  2. You are very helpful, Subi. We are sure your grandparents appreciate it. We like to help with the pre-rinse but Daddy doesn't like it, so we don't get to do it very often.

  3. There is no such thing as getting in the way - unless it is the humans who are getting in the way of Serious Helping! Looks like you were a great host!

  4. Looks like you are the perfect hostess. I've got to try that pre-rinse trick. Who knew I could be so helpful in the kitchen!

    Have fun with your guests!


  5. Humans can't get along without our help, can they?


  6. You are most certainly a good citizen. I love how you helped with the bed sheets :)
