Saturday Shopping Trip


We're going toy shopping today!  What's everyone else up to?

P.S.  Mom has been acting VERY secretive lately ... ordering things online late at night, whispering with Grandma, Grandpa, and Aunt K., and generally behaving in a suspicious manner.  We found out this morning that all of this craziness was due to a Halloween costume contest she was planning on dragging us to today.  And not only was she plotting to torture US in this fiendish manner, she had co-conspirators in Grandma, Grandpa, and Aunt K.  They were planning to dress not just Phoebe and me, but Cosmo and Riley, too, and I think even cousin Bella, in some sort of theme outfits and parade us around in public. Can you believe this?  But, as usual, the W word kept her busier than she planned, and praise the pumpkin gods, she didn't have time to get our outfits sufficiently perfected.  So she said we would NOT be parading today and to "make it up to us" she is taking us shopping for toys!  Phew!  Talk about dodging a bullet!

Ooooohhhhh, get a snack while you are there. Right behind you, those chews look good. Maybe I can talk the Mama into getting one for me too!

Whew - lucky thing for you and Phoebe that the W thing intervened. We aren't doing the Halloween thing this year either. We will have our fun seeing all our pals dressed up:)

Hope you all found some great toys.

Wow, where were you shopping at? Looks like they have lots of yummy treats!

I can't wait to see your costumes (even though you don't seem happy about it)

oooooh, the costume thing sounds very, VERY awful!!!

You better get a LOT of toys to make up for it, before AND after.

Nothing is better than toy shopping...well, except for maybe food shopping!

Glad you dodged the costume bullet though!

:o)

you guys are so well behaved! mom can never take us shopping like that, we're naughty dogs. but even though she can't take us shopping, she still bought us halloween costumes, they make us run away!

Bwaaaaa ha ha! A good shopping trip always makes me happy, too, but I don't mind wearing a costume now and then!

I'd love to see your costumes even if you don't get to parade in public:) I know Frankie and Beryl would rather go toy shopping too, except we don't have any pet shops big enough for shopping trolleys. I can't imagine getting Beryl into one anyway, lol. Hope you all ended up with something fun!
