(Laughs) And you’re a fucking dick sometimes.
What were your top ten pet peeves?
(laughs) I remember a lot of times I would get caught up in trying to make her laugh and being a cunt to her. I used to call my friends all the time at dinner and say, “I want to get you killed.” I didn’t like getting my hair dirty; I just couldn’t stand it.
Does being the dog make it a tougher job?
Yes. Sometimes on a job I’m on there are things he says that are so rude. “Oh I hate that” or “I can’t make that dog bark” or “Can I make it sleep?” There’s just a lot of times when it can be really difficult. On a job, you don’t have time to really have the conversations that you might be used to, you don’t feel like you can say “I’m not sure” or “Should I?” You’re thinking, “Well, just make him bark.”
Why aren’t you allowed to bark?
I just can’t. Sometimes I am on a job where it’s just not allowed, and it can get really tiring.
What is it like being a house dog?
I’ve got some friends who are house-trained, and they have some crazy tricks. It’s very hard to tell on a job when you’re on your own. When there’s a dog in the house, especially for someone else, it’s always more complicated. When you’re at home it’s very easy. But on the job you’ll need to be very open and receptive, you cannot just say “I don’t want to do this, I will put the food down.” You have very limited time to communicate. And there’s a lot of times where your dog is in a situation where you can just stand there and listen to them if you have the time.
Tell me about your dog. Do you know her?
I’ve got a dog of my own called Charlie. She’s my baby sister now, and I love her dearly. She’s a sweet dog, so she just comes running around the house all the time. When she’s asleep, she just sits in my lap and cuddles up. She doesn’t bark at me like most dogs do. And, you know, she’s a really cute dog.
Is Charlie like the dog you wanted to become on the show
