This evening Jeff ate his dinner as usual, served promptly at 8 p.m.
Some time later, Staff heard mysterious crunching.
Jeff was in the dog’s bowl, having some leftovers.
Staff is mostly sure the dog was finished anyway.
Last night Jeff launched a surprise inspection of Staff’s oral hygiene practices.
First he verified Staff was using the correct implement.
He then verified the toothpaste allocation.
Being a very thorough inspector, Jeff even checked on the neighbors.
El Jefe was escorted to the vet for his annual checkup.
El Jefe was displeased.
Staff was happy, because Jeff was pronounced in good health and his blood tests were all normal. His weight was nearly the same as the last weigh-in, a few ounces over 16 pounds. Staff felt validated when the vet picked Jeff up to put him on the scale and made the same groaning sound we do.
