Okay, so yesterday wasn’t such a good day for my mom cuz lotsa peoples at her work got told that they didn’t have jobs anymore. Most Luckily, my mom wasn’t one of ’em but she sure does feel awful sad for the other peoples. We are sending out lots and lots of good thoughts that they will all be okay and finds other places to work real soon.
So cuz she was sad, she asked dad to please take her out to eat…and we gots to go with them! Well, we waited in the truck (don’t worry – the weather was nice and cool) while they went inside to eats Mexican yummies (which, by the way, they did not share even a smidgen of with us!). And then mom realized we were all outta Greenies (the horror!) and so they decided to takes us to PetSmart.
Well, that was oodles and oodles of fun, let me tell you! Now, we have absolutely ZERO pictures to show you of our actual adventure so you’ll just have to take my word for it. I even gots to see this thing called a chin-chilly-yah and wow…I really, REALLY want one! Like, a LOT! But mom and dad were Most Unreasonable about it and said no even though I promised I would take real good care of it and play with it and stuff.
But they were very much unswayed by my arguments and said they would buy me a squeaky toy instead which, betweens you and me, is a sorry trade-off for a chin-chilly-yah. But I decided it was better than nothing.
So we went down the toy aisle, and me and Brudder Ranger were standing there just soaking in all the Most Amazing stuffie goodness when all-of-a-suddens this lady came arounds the corner and then just froze right in her tracks and stared at us. Um, okay, well, she really just stared at me. I mean, I don’t really blames her. My Most Beautiful brindle furs ARE most stunning for sure. So I thought that I would gives her a little show. And I smiled at her and wiggled and wagged (brindle furs are most impressive when one is wagging, you know) and pointed out some toys that I would be interested in if she was so inclined to buy me one.
But…she just kept staring. And I just kept smiling. And then I wagged. And then she stared some more.
Well, after awhiles this became kind of not very interesting anymore, so we went ahead and picked out a toy and started walking toward the place where they take your green papers. And this is the part of the story where it gets kinda weird cuz suddenly, she gasped and stepped back really most dramatically, her eyes gots wide and she managed to spew out, “Safe dog? SAFE DOG?”
I was kinda confused by this and wondered who she might be talking about. Mom was also most confused and just smiled and said, “Oh, yes. They’re very friendly.” But I guess the lady was worried that she might accidentally rub off my Most Beautiful brindle furs because she did her bestest to become one with the toy shelf as we passed by. To tell you the truth, I think she mighta been a little cuckoo-bird, just between you and me.
Anywho, in spite of that – and in spite of the fact that I didn’t makes it home with my very own chin-chilly-yah – we had a real good time and I think it helped cheer my mom up pretty good, too!
I hopes you have a real happy Friday and and even better weekend! And remember, my Gotcha Day is March 28th in case you have any spare chin-chilly-yahs that you wants to send me.
