Hey everypup ~Scooter here~
We just got back from the doggie dream store. Mom took us to the pet store to let us pick out our own SNACKS. OMD, I had never been to a store such as this. Come to think of it, I've never been to a store. I think the closest would be the V-E-T, which leads me to believe I've never been to a store.
Have you pups ever sniffed such wonderful stuff? In corner all to themselves I spotted really long EVIL NEMESIS SQUIRRELS. Get this - in a cage. I let loose with a squeal of delight and lunged toward my first taste of EVIL NEMIS SQUIRREL only to be brought short by the LEASH. Please Mom - let me at the evil critters - please! What? Ferrets? Can we get one? I promise I'll play nice...once. BOL.
Aisle 4 - wow look at all the stuffed dog toys. I'd better lift my leg and let that dog that is eyeballing me know these are all MINE. I get yelled and at Mom tells me she is "horrified" and cleans up after me. Muttering that she's glad all males seem to be unable to aim as I missed what I was going for.
Ailse 5 - All good dogs go to heaven and baby I am there. SNACKS everywhere you sniff. While Mom is showing Misty the Greenies selection I spy a bone bigger than Mom's thigh. Must Have. Must Be MINE. Oh yea - lifted my leg again. Mom yelled at me and said I was a very bad dog. Here I thought this trip was all about US and I'm in trouble for trying to be a dog. Again we trot to the clean up station and clean up my "near mess".
After that I was picked up and managed to get even with Mom. Yep I didn't "shake" when done peeing - hee hee. More Mom muttering. Someone should talk to her about that. One must communicate clearly.
I got a good whiff of the cat food aisle. Dang that stuff smells better than that stuff Mom gives us. What gives? I smelled fish, chicken, pork. Ours is just dry kibble smell.
Mom had to let me down to grab something on a shelf to put in the cart. I sniffed a bag and it was one of the best smells I had ever smelled. I wanted to know that this was the thing I wanted most at the dog heaven store - so I lifted my leg again. Mark what you want in this world before some other pup does. Mom gave me the stink eye and told me I was a very bad dog. I got a lecture on how at her ripe age and the amount of dogs she had taken into pet stores I was the first (it came out as FIRST!!) dog that had every (it came out as EVER!!) peed it came out as PEED!!!!!!!) in a store. Gosh, she had to wait so long isn't she glad she had this experience?
I sniffed the bag as Mom did another clean up. She looked at me and said "Scooter - this is the exact same brand we have at home, only we have the prescription stuff for Misty's bladder".
Well gosh, if I'd have known that I would have saved my pee for birds I spotted in cages on the way in. Although they were awful high up there.
As we stood in line, one of the doggie dream workers came up and said I was the cutest thing she had ever seen. I Know. She asked Mom if I could get a treat. Mom said I didn't deserve it, but yes. I did not know treats were SNACKS! I turned up the cuteness level and everyone told me how cute I was. I Know Already!
It's the small things you do for the humans that bring a smile to their faces.
Sniff at ya later ~Scooter~
