Today Mummy took me to another one of my very favorite places: the Cookie-And-Toy store! It's so fun to go there! I had a little trouble convincing her to take me. I had to tell her I needed material for my blog! THEN I acted really pathetic and emaciated (that's a new word I learned from my good friend George on Facebook, thanks George!) Mummy told me I didn't really look very emaciated at all, but she took me to the Cookie-And-Toy store anyway. We took Auntie A with us too. She needs to have more fun, at least that's what I think. Mummy needs more fun too. You SEE? It was really a treat for all of us!
There's lots of stuff to do at the Cookie-And-Toy store so let me tell you a little about the very best places. You don't want to waste time looking at fish and birds or at cat toys. I WOULD like one of those little gerbils or hamsters though. I think that would be a lot of fun but Mummy says "no, absolutely NOT" so I guess we won't be getting one.
Anyway, here's the stuff you don't want to miss:
1. People. There are a lot of people in the Cookie-And-Toy store and they all love dogs!
First I saw this nice lady. She knew all the good places to pet a dog! I really liked her a lot!
THEN I met this really cool guy. He played with me for a long time.
Mummy said that he works for the store. I think he must have the same job I do: official greeter. That's ONE of my jobs anyway, maybe it's only one of HIS jobs too.
See how smart he is? He knows exactly how to treat a dog!
I also met some ladies shopping for cookies-and-toys and a little girl and her family who really liked me a lot!
2. Other dogs. Today I didn't see as many dogs as we sometimes meet. I did make one new friend though.
He was REALLY TALL! We had a nice conversation anyway before Mummy and his daddy made us move on.
3. TOYS! I looked at all the toys. Mummy told me to choose some special ones for us to use as presents. I don't know who the presents are for. I HOPE they're for me! I also hope I don't have to wait until my birthday to get them!
I looked at all the possible assistants to see if I could find a new one. A lot of these seemed to have children and I don't really think it would be good to have all those little ones running around the office, do you?
Hmmm, would any of these make good presents? (wink, wink)
I do NOT think a snake would make a good present! EWWW!
Ahhhh! Now THESE have some possibilities!
Oh Mummy! Oh Mummy! Look! Look! Look! The PERFECT thing!
Oh. Mummy says those are for puppies! I thought I WAS a puppy......Mummy says they're for really little puppies. (Heh heh, I THOUGHT they must be for me! I wonder why Mummy's being so mysterious about it?)
Hey! A cat! I like cats! I have one at home. I play with him a lot! Mummy says she needs to put my cat in the washing machine. I hope he likes water better than most cats! THIS cat is nice and clean.
I don't understand, Mummy. WHAT is the purpose of this thing?
I have to make sure to sniff out ALL the best bargains!
4. Treats! Yippee! I like the cookies and treats even better than the toys!
I want some of these, and some of these, and some of these...oh and some of THOSE. Yum YUM!
5. Food! I think I'll check out the different kinds. Maybe I'd like a NEW brand!
THIS smells good! Look Mummy! It says "healthy fresh and delicious" right there on the box!
It REALLY smells GOOD!
40 pounds WOW! FORTY POUNDS! Look Mummy, I sniffed out another bargain! What? Oh. Mummy says this is puppy food and anyway we don't need any food today. Shucks!
Oh well, we did pretty good I think. Here's our haul:
Not bad huh? Time to go to that last interesting place...
6. The pay counter. This is where you buy all the cookies-and-toys.
They have cookies here too that they GIVE to the dogs! See the big box?
Also, I watched Mummy very carefully and I was RIGHT! She DIDN'T use that flimsy green stuff to pay for our loot! She used the rectangular plastic thing just like I THOUGHT she did! Apparently that green stuff is some sort of joke.
Well that was my trip to the Cookie-And-Toy store. It was SOOO fun! Be sure to get your moms and dads to take YOU as soon as possible! Tonight if you can manage it!
