So Madame President takes me to Petsmart last night. I needed some dog food and she thought I could look around. You know, socialize a little. So we walk in and the first thing I see is this girl at the door in a Petsmart shirt, she bends down and says "HI YOU!!!" and asks mom if she can pet me. Mom thinks to herself "Well, I'm sure you CAN, but is it the best idea?? Probably not." Mom says she can pet me, the girl rubs my little chin and neck and then offers me a treat. You would think that the food hound I am, I would snatch that right up. But no, I refuse to take food from strangers. I've heard the stories, I'll wake up in some foriegn country married to some guy I've never met. No thank you, stranger, keep your "treats." Anyways, we do our shopping and head for the door. Just then mom says "What's this, Lou?" and points at something right next to me. I turn my head, it's like I'm dreaming; there are about 20 parakeets just sitting there waiting for a guy like me to dine on them!!!! My ears go straight up, I let out a small warning growl and then I went for it!!! Dinner time!!! All of the sudden my face smushes up against something hard, GLASS!!!! What kind of craziness is this?? Then it hits me, it's like the lobster tank at Red Lobster. The waitress comes and you show her which lobster you want and then they fish it out and cook it for you. OK, I get it now. I wait patiently, staring at my selection, waiting for my waitress. Who's tip is dwindling quickly because she is taking FOR-EVER!! She finally comes, she says "How are you today?" I say, "Fine, thank you. I will have the blue one cowering in the corner over there." She pets my head and says "Thanks for coming to see us honey." And she walks away. Mom says, "OK Lou, lets go." I say "Moooooooooom, what about my parakeet? I think the girl is going to come back with a net and then take it in the back and grill it for me! We have to wait." Mom says, "Nobody's cooking you anything fool, let's go" Laughing at me the whole way. That's a pretty dirty trick they play on you at Petsmart, if you ask me. PEACE!!!

I just can't believe they would tease you like that. I'm with Sammy...petsmart is stupid!
Why, that's worse than Squirrels in the front yard!
I mean, what do they expect when parakeets are across the isle from doggy biscuits? They must be snacks too!
I think my momma "might" be meaner than yours - she keeps 2 parakeets in our house in a cage and she named them Zorra (the green one) and KooKooee (the mean blue one).
And she has a grill and everything.
Oh Lou that's just mean. I mean if a little dog can't get a little grilled parakeet every now and then what's there to live for, right?
I'm really not surprised. Remember when Oldest Lad was at the Zoo and the Parakeet BIT him! Yes, Oldest Lad could not feed the Parakeet because Oldest Lad has severe food allergies and dog knows what is in the parakeet food, undoubtedly nuts, because almost ALL bird food does have nuts. So the Parakeet BIT him!
These Parakeets probably sit there at PetSmart just to Taunt dogs. And bite little boys.
I've said it before, and I'll say it again....
Louie... you are just the cutest. :o) I can see why Sunny Lee luuuuvs you so much!
How awful. I too have been deprived of a critter buffet at a pet store. I specifically ordered up one grilled hamster with a side of gerbil. They even had To Go boxes all ready. Of course, I didn't get bupkis.
Most uncool. I'll never figure humans out.
What make me laugh the most about your entry is the part about being married to a foreign guy...BOL BOL BOL Your mom will NEVER let something like this happen to you. Not taking food from a stranger is a good thing but not for that reason. I would fear poisonning but marriage....BOL BOL BOL Thanks for the laugh ! I agree with Ella, Sunny Lee is a lucky girl.
My PetSmart has KITTEHS!!!
Now I know I can't eat a kitteh, but the litter box is right there. I've read things saying litter box treatses are delish. Do I get a sample?! NO!
Are all Moms mean?
I'm ok with Ella and Tippy flirting with you. You really are irresistable! :)
One day my brudder Sammy brought a mouse inside and it was still alive. So I scooped it up quickly and was about to swallow when the shrew said spit it out now!! I was that close to enjoying my first stolen mouse.
I heard a rumor today the cat left a chipmunk on our outside basement steps. I just need a few seconds and victory will be mine.
A couple of years ago, the secretary found something recently deceased on our front door step. As I ran upstairs for a carving fork and knife, the secretary announced that "Dealing with the dead critters is the boy's job" and shut the door leaving only the backup outside. Once I finally got the door back open (darn thumb problem), the dead critter was gone! I'm not sure if the backup put it in the freezer for a special occasion, but I haven't seen hide nor hair of it since.
