Butchy's Birthday CampOut

We were invited to Butchy's overnight campout! It's his birthday and we're going to have a blast! Butchy tells us that the girls are to sleep in the fish shack and the boys sleep in his mom's hunting shack and there will be wagon rides and a camp fire and lots of scary stories!
Ruby has invited us to fly the friendly skies with her once again. It's you've never flown with Ruby, you're missing a really fun experience!

I've decided to wear my beautiful sweatshirt that Butchy's mom made for me for my birthday! I really haven't had a chance to wear it yet because the weather was so warm so now's my chance!

Mitch says he wants to go comfy too and we found him a nice soft flannel shirt in dad's closet!

Mitch was a little bit nervous when he heard about us telling scary stories around the campfire but I assured him that it would be fun and he'd love it. I think he's okay with it now!

Hey Butchy, mom says that when she was a girl scout, they used to have campfires and sing and tell scary stories too but they always had s'mores to snack on, so we're going to bring the graham crackers

and the marshmallows

and mom also said that there's also a hershey bar on these treats too but because us dogs can't have chocolate, we opted for the carob!

We're hoping that the carob tastes like the hershey bar that mom so fondly remembers! We toast the marshmallows over the campfire and get two graham crackers and put the carob on top of one graham cracker and then when that marshmallow is toasted oh so golden brown and it's hot and gooey and totally yummy looking, we put that marshmallow right on top of the carob and then the other graham cracker to make the yummiest sandwich in the whole wide world! Mitch and I are drooling already!

This is going to be one fun pawty, Butchy! We can't wait for the fun to begin!
BTW, we didn't want to give you all the wrong impression that we totally hate clothes! We do wear winter coats when it's brutal out and we love dressing up for all of your pawties! It's just the Halloween costumes that set us off! The rest is okay!
See you soon!

Love ya lots,

Maggie and Mitch

That hot pink is YOUR color! You look bootiful in your sweatshirt. And, Mitchy looks very comfy in the flannel shirt. That's probably what I'll be wearing too ~ nice & simple.

I'll see you guys at the pawty, and Mitch, you can sit with me during the scarey stories ~ I'm kind of a wussy boy when it comes to stuff like that & need lots of buds around me.

Goober love,

Marvin -The Hollow Hound said...

Noah the Airedale said...

Can't wait to sink my teeth into those carob hershey bars...delish!
You're outfits look terrific. I wish my hat didn't fall off my head, I feel under dressed for the pawty.
The girls are a little worried about the scary stories but I told them there would be some hunky boy dog to look after them.


Simba and Jazzi said...

You may hate clothes but it might get cold and its only sensible to wear an extra layer. Or at least thats what Mummy told me.

Hi Maggie :-) and Mitch :-) Carob looks really good. My mom doesn't give me human food but she says that they sell carob at the local pet store and she may buy me some for a treat!! Yippee!! Btw, I don't wear clothing either. I tear it off when mom tries to put it on me so no Halloween costume for me either this year.

Lillie Valentine said...

Did you have fun camping? The hooman pups made S'mores this weekend. NO chocolate for me though. The marshmallows got stuck in MY beard!!

The enjoyment of the camp is an eaten thing, a talked thing, and a thing to play. :)
There is not eating the Graham cracker.
However, it seems to be delicious.
