Mom Is Loading The Dishes In The Washer, Then Border Collie Decides To Help Her

Dirty dishes happen. Whether washing by hand or in the dishwasher, doing dishes is a fact of life. In my family, there’s often lively discussion about whose turn it is to do the dishes — it’s one of those chores no one really wants to do.

But for a cheeky pooch named Lava, doing dishes is super fun and delicious! Lava doesn’t really know or care how dishwashers work.

But this helpful border collie from Alberta, Canada, just can’t resist licking the dishes as they are being loaded into the dishwasher. After all, some dishwashers do require a pre-rinse!

Making sure not to waste a delicious morsel, the 18-month-old pup slurps her tongue across every dish, one by one.

Lava hits the jackpot when she discovers a gravy-covered plate in the back, burying her snout in between the crockery.

This video is truly hysterical and will surely end any after-dinner argument about whose turn it is to do the dishes. It also makes a great distraction from actually doing the dishes!

So the next time your family is dreading doing the dishes, give Lava a call. Or maybe you have your own helpful pooch that might like to give dish licking a try!
