Treating Dad

We promised to treat dad to fish-n-chips for father's day but it didn't happen to work out on that particular day so he took a rain check.
Last night he cashed in on his rain check! We went out to Madison to Lenny and Joe's Fish Tail for their famous fish-n-chips! For those of you who don't know, chips are just big french fries! At least they are here in Connecticut!

Here he comes Mitch! Picnics in the truck are so much fun! Just wait and see!
ummmmmmmmmm smell that aroma! I can't wait to get my paws on some of those fries! Dad's smiling so I guess he's in the right frame of mind to share LOTS with us!
Yum, that fish was just awesome mom! Could I please have another piece?
Mom apologizes for the poor quality and lack of pictures! She says it's hard to take pictures and guard her dinner and eat at the same time! Who would she have to guard her dinner from???
This is Mitch's first time out with us for an actual dinner. Usually it's just ice cream. I think he likes picnics in the truck! heheheheAfter our fish dinner we headed home for lemon popcycles! Our weather has been very autumn-like for the past few days but it's heating up again - like July is supposed to be!

Mom took one popcycle out of the freezer and made us share. I know, I know, but that's her idea of fun - not ours!
I was lazy and wouldn't get up off my butt so mom came down to my level to let me have a bite! Mitch had to sit to wait for his share. I went first:
And then it was Mitch's turn:

And then it was my turn again. This was so sweet and chilling! Can you see the spittle all over my beard?!

And then Mitch again. Yummy, can we have another one? Grape next time! Boys like grape!
All gone!!!!!!!!!! That was most refreshing!

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

Love ya lots,

Hey Maggie,
Mmmmmmmm, fish sounds awfully yummy. Maybe we better have Papa take us to Dairy Queen tonight, hehehehe. We love to go for rides. Mama's uncle wants to get an airedale when his little dogs pass on someday. Mama was excited to hear this cause she really likes airedales too. Do you know of any good breeders here in Iowa?? If you do, please let us know.
Luv & Wirey Hugs!

Wow, fish and chips look yummy! It is traditional here in England to eat them at the seaside, so maybe I'll get to if we go on holiday.

oh maggie, i hope your mom knows grape is not good for doggie. grapes are poisonous for doggies. mom didn't know at first and she fed me grape + peanut butter flavour of jam and some doggie pointed out to mom that it is actually poisonous to us. oops!

yeah i like Popsicle too.
