Put to work

My girl hurt her back the other day and can hardly move. I've been trying really hard to help her out. I've learned how to pick up all sorts of things that I never was allowed to touch before. I've learned to grab the telephone and the clicker for the tv (and most of the time, I actually give them to my girl). When I want to play catch, I drop the toy right in the girl's hand, rather than making her wrestle it from me. I've even offered to wash the dishes for her, but she won't let me do that. I am in charge of making sure she is ok. At night, she takes medicine for the pain. I don't think she sounds normal when she sleeps, so every couple of hours I hop on the bed and check to make sure she is ok. If she doesn't wake up to let me know she is ok, I stick my tongue in her mouth or up her nose. That always does the trick.
Comet

I've been trying to help the girl too. I pick up all of Comet's toys and put them in the toybox. That way the girl won't slip and hurt herself more. I'm also in charge of waking her up if she falls asleep on the couch. I don't want her to sleep in a position that will hurt her back. I tried to help her make a sandwhich the other day. She looked like it hurt to grab the meat from the fridge, so I volunteered to grab it for her. She didn't seem to thrilled with that help. I don't know why.
