Barry is always very helpful. He is right on it when it comes to any task. He's willing to undertake anything.
When we pull the trash out from under the sink his bionic ears hear this and he runs to our aid every time.
He watches with tail waggling as we tie up the top.
He walks with us down the hall to the trash shoot sniffing around to make sure nothing unexpected comes up and to make sure there isn't any food or snacks lying around. We don't want to waste.
When we need to get anything from storage Barry is at the ready to walk down the hall with us, basically doing the same thing he does for the trash mission. It's very helpful, so why change a good thing?
When we are making dinner Barry is there, to the rescue of any dropped munchies, keeping our floors spotless. It's the pit bull standard (which, if you don't know, is very high for cleanliness).
He is never in the way. Who needs access to the fridge when making dinner anyway?
When I'm chilly he's there to warm me.
When Husband loses something (because I rarely lose anything), Barry is there to help him search out the item.
When we get a package in the mail Barry is first in line to help open it up. He's excellent at it.
And at the end of the day when we're all ready for bed, after all the help Barry has given us throughout the day, he needs our help to boost him into bed (but not really because he can jump into our bed by himself, he just likes us to lift him in at night). It's the least we can do to repay the favor.
