Running Errands Today

Mom had several things that she had to do and seeing as it was a fairly cool day here today she said I could go! yippeeeeee!

Our first stop was the gas station - really not very interesting but I got to do something different so it was just fine with me! I've heard that some gas stations hand out cookies to dogs but not ours! booooooooooooooo
Do any of you have gas stations in your area that give out dog biscuits? The next stop was my favorite bank! One of the tellers just loves me and treats me really good! But the stupid Wells Fargo truck was blocking the drive-thru so mom had to go inside the bank and leave me alone in the car for a minute! Mom whined to the teller and told them that I was heart-broken that I wouldn't be getting my cookie out the drive-thru window. They apparently felt bad for me and gave mom two cookies! yeaaaaaaa
Thanks for thinking of me mom! I'm a starving girl, ya know!

Then mom asks me if I'd like to stop at Petco! Really, are you serious?! Of course! Who wouldn't!
I haven't been inside Petco in AGES!!! And this was a brand new store and there were sure lots of goodies!
So many choices! Which one should I buy? hummmmmmmmmm

Then mom came up with the dumbest idea! She suggested that we buy Mitch a bone seeing as he didn't get to come with us and had to stay home with dad! DUMB IDEA MOM!

I finally gave in and said - sure - why not! Bleh!

So we came home with this neat chew bone for Mitch and NOTHING for me! I think I deserve some sort of a medal for this unselfish act, don't you?!

So here I am making sure that Mitch will like his new bone! Oh brother - what I have to do to please this woman!
Here's Mitch with his new bone! I think he likes my choice of bones!

(Mitch - Hey, I thought that bone was for me??!! Give it up!)

HAHAHA! No way sucker! It's got my name written all over it - for the next 10 minutes anyway!

Until next time...................

Love ya lots,

Hi Maggie...
Sounds like a fun time out with your Mom. Our gas stations here dont' give out biscuits, but the KFC does (but we don't go very often).

What a GREAT sister you are to buy a bone for Mitch. So generous.

Lots of Licks, Ruby

Hey Maggie!
That's terribly unfair that you didn't get anything at all from Petco today. What kind of cruel torture was that?! And after you were so great?

I love running errands with my mom...although one of the last times I ate her sunglasses. That's not a fun game - I do not recommend it. I mean it was fun for me...but apparently not for her. :)

I might see you at the Dogs with Blogs pawty later on...if our time zones connect :)

But if not hope you have a wonderful time!!

Newfie kisses,

Hi Maggie! Hi!

OH Boy, OH Boy! You got to go to PETCO! I love going to shop for toys!!! I just love it!!!! What a good errand trip! Talk to you soon, Maggie!

Putter ...:)

Yay, Petco! I love going in there! Nope, the gas stations around here do not give us biscuits. Mom says that our stations are pretty gross here in Fl. compared to the ones she stopped at on the Merritt Hwy (sp?) last summer. Those were very clean and nice, but expensive!

Good girl for giving Mitch the bone (kind of) ;)
Puggy kisses

Nowhere gives out biscuits to doggies over here - except sometimes the pet store.

Hey, the proper video of me hopping like a rabbit is on my post now - I realised I posted the same one twice - must be the medicine!

Hope your twisted ankle is OK.

Aaw! It is so unfair of your Mom not to get you anything at Petco and yet made you chose something for Mitch. I think you deserve something too! She should make up for this oversight the next time you go.

I've been to the gass station once with my Mummy but they don't give you cookies. I did get a lot of nice comments from the people in the gas station though.

Hi Maggie,
Smart move. Get praised for being generous first then have the bone for yourself. I would have done the same.

Luv and hugs,


Amber-Mae said...

Oooh what fun! Did you get to choose your own toy & treat Maggie?

Love licks,

Jessica said...

Hi Maggie.....We are new to the world of doggie bloggers. You have an awesome site. Aren't banks and drive throughs the greatest? When my Mom goes to McDonalds I always get cookies too. Petco looks wonderful. I'm begging my Mom to take us there too.

Nothing wrong with a little sharing, right Maggie?!

Huskee and Hershey said...

Heheh.. that last pic speaks volumes!

jaffeboy said...

K... U get to go out & Mitch gets a toy. I can't say it is all that fair cos can't fault you for being the choice car companion right?

Hmmm... I think U so deserve a chew bone yourself too.

Cairo The Boxer said...

OMG what a great day! As for the cookies my parents said they don't know of any around here.

Chelsea said...


You had quite an outing!

You have mentioned that bank teller before. Maybe you should try and get some money from her?


Luckie Girl said...

I think you were very kind getting Mitch a present. Glad to see that you snatched it back off him though. Way to go, Maggie! J x
