The art of contract review

Always look for the fine print, inclusionary, exclusionary clauses..

The quid pro quos, the jabber-walkies [it sounds like that anyway....] the sine something....

Make sure you spend an adequate amount of time reviewing the document. [This is all billable time, after all] Backward, forward and sideways. Ponder, Explore the what ifs. The what nots. Then do your memo. Remember DUE DILIGENCE. [I think this means use the peed pad].
Now do your bill!

Ehmm Rocky, a good contract will insure your chewie supply is steady and plentiful!

ehm ehm..

Do you do real estate law, 'vie?

Indeed. Apparently the staff at TW is in the process of putting a contract together for me. And it is WAY beyond chewies. They have to provide a dog wrangler (this is the person who will be in charge of me when I am at rehearsal or at the theatre -- it can't be mama), transportation to get me to and from the theatre back home (again mama can't do this), some real form of compensation - I think that's for mama, probably grooming fees and a bunch of other stuff. Mama has been talking to some of the production people about what needs to happen so that I stay safe -- you know like no picking me up, no chocolate, no grapes or raisins and they are NOT allow to dye my hair a different color! I have been measured for two different body doubles and our props person Sarah has made me some "stage bones" that taste surprisingly real! Hmm we probably need to find a good pee/poop spot near the theatre too. Oh, there is just so much to think about. I will get to go meet the two kids who are also in the show. They have a child wrangler and a tutor so they don't miss too much school. It has been quite interesting at work as everyone is treating me like a STAR and we don't even know if I can do what they need me to do. Mama hasn't had time to read the script yet.

So Silvie, I may be counting on you to help with our due diligence (I think that's what mama called it) on my contract.

Ever yours -- Rocky

Yes I do, but not in CO and it is quite state specific.

Rocky, of course! hey do they make momma wranglers? I need one of those. She keeps disappearing!

rocky-dog said...

No, I don't think they have mama wranglers. It would be nice though as mama runs back and forth now between her two offices at work. They finally found an office for us that is not in the warehouse but we also still have the warehouse desk too. Biggest problem seems to be that mama's puters and printers don't work quite right and paperwork is never on the right place so mama is ALWAYS running now. And I'm sure you can guess what that means for me. Let's just say that at the end of the day I just want to put my paws up and rest!
