So since Ms. Anonymus asked for Manni's job at the bridge I thought I'd try and answer, not that I'm sure there is a bridge.
I am also not sure anybody would want for Manni to have a job there since he would a) make sure everybody was safe and guarding the heck out of "his territory", so if any one of us came to meet up with their animal again they'd have a hard time getting in. just saying... 🙂
and b) if the kitties were in the same place, too, Manni would be poking them in the butt, with his nose, so they would finally start running for him to chase after... I am not kidding. He would do that with the barn cats all the time until they would get so annoyed with him they started clawing at his nose.
I suppose he could also work as the one finding all lost pets and people, he's done that before, but somehow I doubt that anyone will be lost there.
So, Ms. Anonymus, maybe Manni having a job there wouldn't be such a great idea? What do you think?
Here are examples of him guarding EVERYthing. There is a reason I keep calling him "the world's worst first dog"...
Just saying... 🙂
Guardian of Manni the Wonderdog. -Or was it the other way around?

Awww Tina. I think Manni has a job. 🙂 He is your Guardian. That is his job right now. Heck maybe chasing a few cats too 😉 I think each one of our babies has a job even if its laying under a tree waiting for us.

Michelle, I completely agree with you, all our beloved pups have a job over the Bridge, no matter how big or how small, they all serve a loving purpose there as they did here, I truly believe that. I think Manni can be the master guardian of the Bridge, and watching out for his mama down here as well ❤️💙💞🐾
Love to all,

I've been trying to think of what job Nitro could/would do, and not really succeeding. In life, the only dog he liked was his brother Kodi. He was a champion squirrel chaser, always had a ball in his mouth, and barked like crazy at the neighbors - human or canine. Perhaps his best quality was snuggling, touching, loving, comforting....me. So not sure what job this would look like at the bridge.
Paula and Warrior Angel Nitro
Nitro 11 1/2 yr old Doberman; right front amp June 2014. Had 6 doses carboplatin, followed by metronomic therapy. Rocked it on 3 legs for over 3 years! My Warrior beat cancer, but couldn't beat old age. He crossed the Bridge peacefully on July 25, 2017, with dignity and on his terms. Follow his blog entitled "Doberman's journey"

These are great descriptions of the jobs Manni, Max and Nitro would have! 🙂 🙂 🙂
Max definitely managing all the water sports on the pristine clear water lakes AND oceans at the Bridge! I can see Gus and Murphy helping hi pass out the vests and beach balls.
I do think Nitro would be in charge of passing out lasers everynight for everyone who wanted to chase them before bedtime He speaclizes in orchestrating Nighttime activities
Yeah, Manni would help overseeing the water sports by being a Lifeguard and making sure everyone plays safely. And thoe two pics you posted make me think he would also be the WATCHDOG who is on the lookout when he is notified newcomers are on their way to the Bridge. He guides them with " butt pokes" to point them jn the direction of their welcome wagon, then to the tummy massage table, etc.
PS. Tina, can you fix the link to Manni's "worst first dog...." blog so the comments can be made? On my screen/tavlet, no reply section shows up. And that vlog id DEFINITELY worthy of some responses! 🙂
Happy Hannah had a glorious additional bonus time of over one yr & two months after amp for osteo! She made me laugh everyday! Joined April's Angels after send off meal of steak, ice cream, M&Ms & deer poop!
