My dog does not follow instructions. Like, at all.
That is probably my fault. I never took her for obedience training.
When I was a kid we trained our dog to follow simple instructions: sit, stay, shake.
My current dog, bred to be a working dog, was a rescue and she’s smart as can be, but I’m pretty sure she willfully ignores me.
So I will not be submitting her resume to Busch for their new product campaign.
Benefits include: Healthcare (pet insurance) and Company Stock (free Dog Brew)

Busch is offering $20,000 plus benefits to the pooch who wins the gig.
What the job entails is not clear, but suffice it to say, my dog is her own person, and she enjoys being a dependent.
When the call went out on Twitter, though, hundreds of puppies (with the help of their people) applied for the job.
Here are 11 of the cutest little applicants social media has ever seen.
1. Boba the Blue Heeler
Even the Twitter-famous service dog threw his hat in the ring!
Dear Sir or Madam,

3. Ellie the 11YO Mope
She has perfected several different poses.
She is also almost 11, so she's definitely old enough for a brew! And she deserves it
