National Ice Cream Day

Norwood informed us about a week ago that July 19th was National Ice Cream day! We have written it on the calendar and you can be sure that we'll be celebrating this very special holiday every year without fail! Thanks, Norwood!

Mom found more Mango Ice Cream at the grocery store this week! It's one of our very favorite flavors! This time mom put it in brandy snifters to make it more of a challenge for us to get the ice cream out and to give her more time to take lots of pictures!
Holy moley, Mitch, we're nosey to nosey!We are really having to work to get this mango ice cream out of here!Hey, Maggie - mine is all gone!
Do you think mom will give us a refill?
Hey, Norwood! We need to create another National ice cream day in a hurry! Should we make it a monthly holiday?!
We received the Kreativ blog award from Doctor Dre and Brodie and Ailsa! What at honor! Thank you so much!
We're supposed to list 7 things about ourselves that you might find interesting.

1. I, Miss Maggie, hate to be hot and at night I would rather sleep on the floor than in my bed!
2. I, Mitch, hate bugs that fly around me and try to kiss my butt! It drives me NUTS!
3. I, Maggie, used to be a fast eater but now that I'm older and wiser, I take my time and enjoy my meals!
4. I, Mitch, can finish my meal in no time flat!
5. I, Maggie, am not into hugs and squeezes. I would rather you sweet-talk me than hug me!
6. I, Mitch, am a love bug! I love hugs and kisses - the more the better!
7. I, Mitch, have a deep wolf bark and my barks sometimes hurt my ears and I have to shake my head after I bark to get my hearing going again!

A lot of you have already played this game so we won't tag anyone but if you want to play, then consider yourself tagged!

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

Love ya lots,

Maggie and Mitch

That mango ice cream looks totally yummilicious. We don't have it where we live, but the next time Mom and Dad make ice cream, we are going to suggest they make mango instead of peach.

The OP Pack said...

Hmmm, I don't think I am going to let mom see this, she might not give me a cone to swallow whole next time.

Congrats on your awards and we so agree about making this a monthly holiday or maybe even a month-long one.

Woos, Thunder Dunder

Eric said...

He,hee as if you two need an excuse like a national holiday to have ice cream! But I'm wagging for you that you got more! Sorry I missed your special post Maggie and Mitch. But happy 600 anyway! Loved your contest and can't wait to see what you bought.

Wiry love and kisses Eric xx

Checkers said...

I missed the whole Ice Cream Day thing!!!! But I was sure having fun. After we saw that alligator it was total leash for me while on land - I only was leash free on the beach......I guess the gators don't like the salt water! BOL - but I sure did

Stardust said...


Now consider yourselves lucky that mommy makes sure you guys miss no special day or treat. Mango is my Bear's ( hubby's ) favourite,he goes nuts at the sight of it.

So, Maggie and Mitch, you don't hug or kiss each other? Nope? Oh forget me, but catch this hug...

Lacy said...

w00fs, hmmm, me lovesss ice iz gonna haff to try the mango kind..
