Always up for more treats!!

Hey folks, when I was at my Granmama’s the other day, I was reminded what a soft touch she is. Mom always tries to feed me before we go over to G’s house so I won’t beg for treats. It’s a fool’s errand as far as I’m concerned. I’m always up for treats from G! Even with a full tummy I can always squeeze in one more treat!!! Enjoy the photos!! Prayers and sniffs for Paris. Barkingly yours, LadyBird.french-flag

I'm here, G! Ready and waiting for whatever goodies you have to offer me today!

I want Shrimp Scampi!

National Shrimp Scampi Day - April 29

So yesterday was National Shrimp Scampi Day. That sounded really good so I had mom send an email to my Granmama and ask her if we could have it for supper. G wrote back and said maybe. Well, I was a little disappointed because she didn’t say yes right away. When mom and I got to G’s yesterday after work, SURPRISE! G said we were going to have some!  Yeah! Or at least I thought it was yeah! – I didn’t get to have any. Mom said it was too much garlic, too much butter too, much salt, too much everything. She said I could have some salad if I wanted. I said, “no thanks.” Oh, well, so much for Shrimp Scampi Day! Maybe next year.

So, tell me mom, when is G going to start the shrimp?

I went to the Pet Expo! part 1

It was a cold and windy day…nope – no story – just a post to tell you about the Pet Expo!

Hampton Roads Convention    Center

It was cold and windy, but thankfully we were inside. We went to Hampton – my first visit there. It took about 30 minutes for us to travel, but I was comfy on my Granmama’s lap.

Me and G!

Mom dropped us off at the door so I wouldn’t get too cold. There were a lot of people and dogs so I was a little scared and refused to walk so mom had to carry me all day! (See how I worked that? She only thought I was scared, but I wasn’t.)

These are cat collars - yuk! - mom looked for a new collar for me but I didn't see one I liked.

First we walked around looking at the vendors – there were lots of folks selling collars, leashes, harness, dog coats and doggie treats.

Just one of many vendors with doggie treats. Yum!

Then we saw some cats, some mice, birds, reptiles and a lot of dogs.

Then we listened to a man talk about birds, ate some lunch, then I was in a fashion contest (I didn’t win – bummer), then watched some flying dogs and some very funny dogs and finally after a long day we went home.

This is a cockatoo.

Waiting my turn to show off my wings. You'll have to wait to see me in full regalia!
