It is time to review mum's performance for 2011. It is strange but we have been getting lots of extra treats lately. We can't think why.
ANNUAL PERFORMANCE REVIEW FOR: MUM
REVIEWED BY: ERIC AND FLYNN
1. Quantity of output: No Paws.
She does help us to blog every day when she is here, here being the operative word. If she didn't keep gallivanting off on holiday she would have received the maximum of Four Paws. We have told her she really needs to improve in this department but things don't look hopeful. We have heard that the Beans already have two cruises booked as well as some short breaks. We seem to remember telling her that this had to improve last year but she has ignored our warnings. If this persists we will have no choice than to award her Two Swats next year.
2. Quality of output: Three Paws.
She does do better here as she takes us on walks around the fields in the hope of getting good photos of us. Also she lets us take our camera so we can show things as we see them. She sometimes takes embarrassing photos of us though and that has prevented her getting Four Paws.
3. Client Pawticipation: One paw.
We have our own email address where we can be contacted, but mum only puts it on show at Christmas so that is not much use. We will tell her we need it on our blog where it can be seen. This deserves two swats but we can be contacted on her email address which is on our profile so maybe we will give her one paw.
4. Pawticipation Part 2: Three and a half paws.
We take place in quite a few competitions and have had some of our own. We are allowed to go to Chatzy when the room is open too so we think we will give her four paws. On second thoughts, we don't want her thinking she is perfect so we will give her three and a half paws.
5. Client Satisfaction: Three paws.
We get quite a few comments every day so we hope we are giving client satisfaction.
6. Overall Rating:
A total of ten and a half paws out of a possible twenty is just not good enough. We expect to see a marked improvement next year.
