Jury Duty

Mom has jury duty coming up and it's not one of her most favoritest things to do so she asked me if I wanted to go in her place.

What are the qualifications for jury service?
A prospective juror must be:
  1. A United States citizen - I was born in Missouri so I'm a US citizen.
  2. A resident of the county - yup - New Haven county.
  3. At least 18 years old - I'm 5 years old so 5 times 7 is 35.  I'm of age!
  4. Able to communicate in the English language - Of course!  Mom taught me all of the important words that I need to know, cookie being the most important!
  5. Physically and mentally capable of serving - what do you guys think?  I hear lots of BOL so I think that means yes!     
It says here in the juror booklet that I can bring my own lunch.  I can do that!

And it says to please dress appropriately.  
  I'm happy to help you out so that you can hand feed Maggie breakie in bed, mom!

Yer favorite son,

Mitch you will be perfect and I am sure very fair. I hope they give you lots of potty breaks and provide snacks and water.

Mitch...that is such a nice thing to do for your Mom. And for Maggie too. I think more juries should have a dog on them. It would help with the stressies.


Cowspotdog said...

I am sure you would do an awesome job Mitch and you look very professional in your tie. Please give Maggie and ear snuffle for us and maybe an extra snack in bed too

We're sure you'll do an excellent job, Mitch. What a great help for Mom and Maggie.

Hey Mitch, we always thought you were pretty awesome. But now we know for sure cuz you are trying to help Mom even more with Maggie~~~
You have all the right stuff to help her with her jury duty. Heck if other dogs can get credit cards you should be able to help out with a jury duty..

Mitch, you look very handsome! We love your tie. You certainly have all the qualifications to serve on the jury and come to think of it, we do thinks dogs should be represented. After all when it comes to being non judgemental only we animals get that right!
We have missed you guys - your blog is looking lovely - ours is all messed up by our stupid human!!!
Much love
