On an adventure to one of my favorite pet stores. I was just going to have a Wordless Wednesday photo show but there is so many neat things to tell you about. Remember you click on the photos to see them bigger. The mom and I have a real routine when we go to the Pet Store. First, she likes to go and look at the fish. I don't know why, they are all wet and slimy and anything that likes water has to be a little strange. But she seems to enjoy it so I sit patiently as she looks in all the tanks to see what is new. After the fish we go down the aisle where all the combs and brushes are....again, I don't know why mom is so fascinated by these.....she has a whole draw full of them already and if I had my way, I would have a national 'bury every brush day' so we wouldn't have to be tortured by them ever again. FINALLY - now we are getting into the good stuff.......the cookie aisle!!!! Dog oh dog - what pup couldn't be happy in here........ME!!!!!! because I am not allowed any of these....but I am allowed to at least sniff the boxes.
Around the corner we go and into my area - this is where the special 'all natural food' is and that is my food right there in the pinky/purple bag. I have fond memories of this place as this is where I did my first puppy class only I was too smart for puppy class and they put me into the intermediate class. Next I checked out a big basket of hock bones......just at nose level they were - how convenient! We continued on around the store and went to see the birdies but alas they still haven't got any in. Mom was a bit disappointed as she likes to talk to the parrots. So we went to have a look at some of the other displays and found this little guy taking a nap. Mom says it is a ferret. I barked and barked at it, but it didn't want to play. It opened one eye slightly and then curled up and went back to sleep - silly ferret!
Then at last - the best part of a trip to the pet store, the self help cookie bar and Miss Ashley. This is where I get my special vanilla pretzel cookies. They don't have anything in them to upset my tummy so I can have them and ALL the staff there know that these are the only ones I am allowed to have. That is them to the left of my paw. Mom buys a bag every Monday and it only costs around 90 cents as they are very light cookies and there is only 2 calories in them so I won't be helping those "chunkie monkeys" to grow anymore. Isn't the self help cookie bar cool - it's life a buffet for poochies! This is Miss Ashley and she is my MOST favorite girl in the pet store. I always look for her the minute I walk in the door and woof loudly when I see her. She also adores me and always gives me lots of hugs and cuddles and best of all - she give me pretzels. That is also the neat thing here......they give all the doggies free cookies , but I am special so I always get one or two or three extras!!!! I even do my trickies for her which is pretty pawsome as I won't do my trickies for just anyone. So there it is....my wordy wonderful Wednesday
