Okay so Mom's business gets really busy and really slow, today was one of the slower days so Mom and Dad brought Monty and I with them to work cause we needed baths. I personally love baths and Monty tolerates them so everything went smoothly. After I was bathed Mom trimmed up my "Grinch" feet as she calls them so that they are all nice and round looking and you can see my nails. She does that for nail painting purposes as well as foxtail hunting purposes. Thanks to how she does my feet I will be officially foxtail free for a year in April. WHOOO!
Anyways after we were done at the shop Dad said "Anywhere else you want to go before going home?" To Mom and her response was "Let's take the dogs to Petco." Now as some of you may know Monty has had some bad training experiences with a Petsmart trainer and so him and pet stores don't usually mix. Though since getting me and having me walk with him and Mom constantly working with him he will now go into a Petco and not have an anxiety attack. Mind you, he will still put the brakes on if you try to take him into a Petsmart because, us dogs can tell the difference. Well we went to Petco and walked the store with no issues, Monty was excited which is normal seeing how he doesn't get out much besides going on walks, to the vet or to the shop. We bought Tippy some canned food that looks really yummy and then Mommy bought the indoor and outdoor kitties some flea meds. She also bought Monty two new jackets cause, he was there to try them on and then she proceeded to pout when the shirt she really wanted to buy him didn't come in his size. The shirt was kinda cute it said "I like Big Mutts and I cannot lie." She bought me two new tags for my collars cause I broke one and she couldn't pick just one so that meant get both in her eyes. BOL! She also got us 2lbs of treats from the treat bar! I can't wait for them to leave us now because, I miss those treats.
Then on the way home they stopped at Subway and got sandwiches. Monty and I got the meat out of Dad's sandwich because, he doesn't eat meat! Monty had so much fun and I enjoyed walking the store with him. He is such a silly dog and he turns heads like it's nobodies business. BOL!
Mom said this weekend she will take just me out to both Petsmarts to see my Aunties there. She is going to be doing our nails later tonight and then paint my nails light purple and dark purple. So that means this weekend I will have light and dark purple bows and she will make Dad put on my purple leather collar because, Mom can't touch it without breaking out in hives. Why she bought a leather collar knowing that she can't touch it is kinda silly in my opinion.
Sounds like you two had a GREAT day and a really good trip to PetCo. (We're sorry Monty had a bad experience at PetSmart.) TWO POUNDS of treats...OMD! That sounds wonderful to me! BOL Be sure and have your mom take pictures of your pretty toes. :)
Yeah it was a nice day that is for sure. Don't be sorry about the Petsmart thing. Mommy blames herself for that, she let her choice of wanting to help a friend go over her better judgement which would have been to go through training with someone else. Also Mommy takes pictures of my toes all the time...don't know if that is a good thing or not. BOL!
I don't like going to Pet Smart because that is where my vet is and I hate my vet.
Oh wow I am sorry Coco. I personally love my vet and get excited when I get to go see him. I feel that every dog should like their vet or there is something wrong with that vet. I have went to three other vets and they treated me like a monster until I found my current vet who pets me and is super gentle. He also talks to me which is nice.
Sounds like a fun day! I wish I could meat outta sandwiches!
