Note from dog
I’m Ruby! I’m the star of this month’s Companionship story, Ruby, My Dear, along with my two humans, Lucian Truscott IV and Tracy Harris.

Meet Sterling Newton, a Golden Retriever who actually helps with housework.

Sterling, who has 300K+ Instagram followers, and his sidekick, Colin the puppy, went viral in this video of them helping their owner sweep the floor. “You know who to call if you need your floors cleaned,” said one commenter. The pair are also quite helpful in sorting laundry.

I showed it to my dog, Lucy, who exhibited no interest whatsoever. “That’s your job, hooman,” she said.
