Helpful Dog Removes Unneeded Legos
NEW YORK - Rush, a neighborhood dog, aided in his owner’s recent task of assembling a Lego Millenium Falcon by removing and disposing of the pieces left unused, sources indicate.
“Clearly, the pieces scattered about on the floor are unnecessary,” commented Rush’s roommate, Spot. “If Billy needed those pieces, he wouldn’t just leave them lying there all over the place.”
Billy, Rush’s and Spot’s owner, was in the midst of building his birthday present when Rush offered his assistance.
“The way I like to do it is I empty the box first, so all the pieces are out where I can see,” Billy began describing his process. “And literally every time, Rush comes after them, no matter how much I push him away or yell at him. I even put out treats and a brand new milk bone for him, but he wants no part of them.”
Rush, being Billy’s best friend, expressed an eagerness to help in all tasks, especially fun ones like building Legos.
“Billy needs my help!” Rush exclaimed. “I’m his best friend. Well, co-best friend, but Spot doesn’t like to play Legos. Look, the thing is, he’s got so many loose pieces just lying around. I’m helping him organize by disposing of the obviously unused pieces. And believe me, it gives me no great pleasure. Those pieces do not taste good at all, and they hurt my insides throughout the entire digestive process. I’d much rather be going after that milk bone he just put out, but this is what true friends do. It’s called sacrifice!”
Though Rush was only half way through disposing of the excess pieces, Billy halted construction for undisclosed reasons, appearing considerably upset.
