Holy smoke! My dog is a banker

My dog sleeps about 20 hours a day. He has his food prepared for him.

He can eat whenever he wants and his meals are provided at no cost to him.

He visits the doctor once a year for his checkup, and again during the year if any medical needs arise. For this, he pays nothing and nothing is required of him.

He lives in a nice neighbourhood in a house that is much larger than he needs, but he is not required to do any upkeep.

If he makes a mess, someone else cleans it up. He has his choice of luxurious places to sleep. He is living like a king, and has absolutely no expenses whatsoever. All of his costs are picked up by others.

I was just thinking about all this, and suddenly it hit me like a brick in the head.

Holy Smoke!My dog is a banker!
