A Trip for Ice Cream

Dad and mom took us to Durham for ice cream last night! Mitch and I are in the back seat of dad's pick-up with the slider window open so we can catch the breeze and "really" see what's going on!

Holy Moley! Look at all of the people! Are they giving ice cream away? I guess everybody had the same idea that we did!

While dad was standing in line, we were checking out our surroundings. Mitch kept whinning because he wanted to say hi to this dog and the dog could have cared less about Mitch! All he wanted to do was beg from his owners for his licks of ice cream!

We've been having picture perfect weather. Sorry about the brightness of the picture. It's 7PM and the sun is still out! It's just beautiful! We're both watching for dad wishing he hurry up with that ice cream!
Dad came back with chocolate for himself - NO FAIR, Dad - but he brought mom vanilla! yeaaaaaaaaaaaaaa Thank goodness mom didn't forget to bring our special spoon! Our friend, Putter gave us these 2 purple shovel spoons! They hold a lot of ice cream!

What a treat! We sure do love our ice cream! Here we are on the way home! The wind is slicking back Mitch's little boy beard! hehehehe We sure do love our ice cream!

Did you notice that we got scalped? Yup! Mom groomed the both of us last week! We feel so much cooler without all the extra fur when the weather gets warmer!

So until next time................

Love ya lots,

Maggie and Mitch

You both look great with your new Aire-cuts! We're glad you got to enjoy some ice cream again! That really isn't fair, though, for your dad to get CHOCOLATE! What a pawty-pooper!

Good evening M & M.
Also in Japan, it is looking at the flower and the hydrangea of the sweet calamus.
I feel the glittering of rain of the season there.
Please spend a wonderful weekend when it enjoys the drive of the ice cream. :)

mmmmm yummy. One of the bst things about summer ---ice cream and steak n ahake. Oops, that's two great things. I can handle it.


Lenny said...

Your new haircuts looks nice and cool, and Maggie, your beard is still exquisite.

Sometimes very rarely I get ice cream. However, it makes me fart REALLY BAD...really super-smelly. So my people are reluctant to share. I hope you don't have that problem!!!

Your friend, Lenny

All this icecream talk is making me hungry... You look so handsome with the wind in your fur.

OK, the author is back. It's so hot here and our a/c isn't working so my brain has stopped working, too, but I'll try again.

You guys are so lucky to have an ice cream shop and a mom who lets you eat from your own purple spoons!

And I love your shorter summer haircuts.

Petey said...

Hi M & M!

Boy, do you have it good! I love to go for car rides almost as much as I like ice cream (my Mommy buys me FrostyPaws whenever she can find them!). Sometimes I get so excited I jump into strangers' cars if they've left the car door open!

Stay cool with those rockin' crewcuts!

Your pal,


Cassidy said...
