First Trip to the Pet Store!

Today was another busy day! We got to take a little walk down to the corner and back up. Then a little later we went in the car again – but for longer this time. We went to a place called the pet store and I had a great time. I was a big boy and didn't get too scared.

There were a lot of noises and people to watch – I really like to watch people to see what they are going to do, they are just fascinating.

I met a LOT of nice, friendly people and doggies. Everyone Oohed and Aaah'd over me and said I was the cutest puppy they EVER saw! I was very polite and sat quietly to meet everyone. Mama Pam seemed very impressed and surprised at my good behavior.... but that's the polite way to act and I knew it.

Here I am meeting Rocky, the Chihuaua... Mama Pam missed getting us touching noses - before we said hello like normal dogs. I met a Cockapoo named Roxy and two really noisy Bichon Frisees (I'm kind of glad they were in a cart, they were a little scary). Everyone said I was so soft and fluffy.

Mama Pam explained about how to say the type of dog I am.... a Keeshond, but you say it "Kayzhawnd" and most people don't know that.

I walked all around the store with Mama Pam and stayed right with her the whole time – she says that is very close to something called "heel" but I just like following her around. We came around one corner and I saw this really cute doggie and started checking him out. Then Mama Pam explained that it was ME! Well no wonder everyone said I was cute! I had no idea that's what I looked like!  Who knew?

I got a new collar and we also got an engraved tag for that kittie named Bromley, in case he gets out again (though between you and me I don't he's going to try that again any time soon). Two little girls came over to pet me very nicely while Mama Pam was getting the tag engraved. It's nice to get so much attention. The one thing that really scared me was these doors that opened and shut all on their own... that was just freaky!

Then on the way home Mama Pam said we'd go through a thing called a Drive-thru, whatever that is. I thought it was a good time for another nap. I really like to nap. But then I smelled this really great smell and got to eat these SUPER yummy things called fries. They were SO tasty! Wow. I hope we get more of those again.

Mama Pam also got some steps earlier today so I can get on and off the couch. I am starting to learn to use them to go up – now that she's making it worth my while by offering fries – but it's much easier to just jump off and I like how it scares the cats!

It was a big, busy day today!
