The Ding Dong Man

OMG, Mitch! The ding dong man is across the street from our house! That's what mom used to call the ice cream truck when she was a little girl!

There's a birthday pawty happening over there! Should we crash it?!

Those kids are all getting ice cream! Mom is going to let us go over there too, right?

I wonder what kind of ice cream he carries on that neat truck?

OH NO! He's backing out to leave! We've got to hurry mom! Grab some money P-L-E-A-S-E!!!!

OH NO, Maggie! I think he's leaving and we didn't get any ice cream! This is just horrible! I can't believe this is happening! OMG, he's driving away! W-A-I-T!!!!!

I need to hold my leash for comfort, Maggie! I can't believe this happened! I'm so stressed! He was so close! I can almost taste that ice cream!

Do you think he'll come back soon, Maggie? I sure hope so!

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

Love ya lots,

Maggie and Mitch

HAY WAIT! We have a business concept! Someone should start a DOGGIE-TREAT truck! what a gold mine! It would play a sing-song wolfie noise, and there would be a huge selection of gourmet dog treats, including frozen delights and other things, even balls in case the H-mans forgot to bring one ... and of course, WATER. And the truck would make the rounds of the parks, dog walk hot spots, etc etc ... hmmmmmmmmmm ... we've got an idea!

Unknown said...

That's the saddest story since "ABONEment." But boy oh boy do I like Booker's idea, doggone it! Can I have the NYC franchise?

Your pal in ice cream,


Faya said...

I hope it will be back soon.... Is it also hot in USA ?....
Kisses, Faya

Gaia the Airedale said...

That is so sad that he left! It just means you two need to find that truck and pee on his tires! Mitch you need to get on that buddy!

How stressful. We don't have an ice cream man down here but we do have a snow cone man

Stanley said...

Maggsie & MitchMan!

That's a bad break with the ding dong man! Bummer. Maybe next time.

I'm catching up with all you've been up to. Rhode Island looked amazingly fun. I absolutely LOVE sticking my snout out the window on a breezy day.

We're going to go over & check out Kodiak & Falcon's new blog. If they're friends of yours I'm sure they exceptionally cool pups!

By the way, has Mrs. Turtle shown back up?! Looks like Mitch was a little too excited about welcoming her. She may have moved on. Maybe you'll get some of Tito's toady relatives soon!

Goober love & lots of smooches,

Randi said...

Oh My Dogness!


I sure wish the ding dong man would have stopped by & given the two of you icy icecreams for being so patient...How could your peoples let him go w/o even a popsicle for the two of you? both are just the cutest with the popsicles in your mouthies at the top of your bloggy..

so sweet!

Love & Licks,

Nanette said...

oh noooooo! Stella Bella feels for you, she really does. She HATES it when we pass on by the icecream truck on her walks.

Girasol said...

hijack the truck!

Snowball said...

Oh no... I can't believe that your mum is so mean to you. Did she bring you to the ice cream after that?


Joe Stains said...

You need to put a GPS system on that Ding Dong man so you can track him and be prepared at all times with some cash!! I am so sorry you missed out!

Murphey said...

My lady used to call the ice cream truck the Da Da Dee truck! She didn't know they served ice cream when seh was little, she just thought it played music! Now she knows what it serves and we do too.


Petra said...

The next time he comes around, you need to bark to get his attention. Surely he'll come over and give you ice cream; it's your favorite!

Willow the Black Dale said...

Noooo say it isn't sooooo! I hope your dad gets home quick and takes you out for ice cream!!! How could this happen to you two??? You are good dales!!! I am puzzled....I just don't understand this situation? And NOT getting invited to a birthday party??? Now that is just wrong, wrong, wrong!!! If you lived close by my girl would have invited you to hers!!!
Cool slurps,

Unknown said...

Chef said...

The ding dong truck left without ice cream for you ? ... it's unthinkable! I'm sending you some in the mail right away, my Airebuddies.


Lorenza said...

Hi, Maggie and Mitch!
I hope you two will not have a trauma! Knowing how much you love ice cream sure it was sad to see that truck going away!
Maybe you Mom can give you a popsicle!
Kisses and hugs

Kess And Her Mama said...

Summer time and no ice creams? This can't be happening!

Rudy said...

What kind of summer is it without ice cream?? The truck hardly comes down our street but we hear him all the time when it's nice out. We usually just watch Mom eat hers in the evening. Sigh.


Scruffy, Lacie and Stanley's Place said...

RUN!!!! You two can beat that truck!!! Bite the tires...disable him!!!! Tie him up with ur leashes....and go and


Oh Maggie...Mitch looks soooooooo handsome in those pix!! New summer Airecut??? Boy he looks like Stan!

Love ur header photo with the pupsicles!!!!!


Amber-Mae said...

The Ding Dong man! That's funny! I can't believe the ding dong man did not see you two hungry doggies. I think it would have been fun to have crashed that kiddie pawty! Hehehe!

Koobuss said...

That movie had one of the saddest endings I ever saw. The ice cream truck just pulled away and you guys were left there with nothing. I could just cry.


I hope that you have better luck next time (or at least maybe some kind person took you for ice cream.)

Love and Koobuss Kisses,

pee ess I love your new header.

Puggle Preston said...

Hi Maggie and Mitch,

a truck full of ice cream?? I will have to pay attention next time I hear that music.


Helios said...

oh no, you missed the I-Scream! Maybe you weren't screaming loud enough for the I-Scream man to hear?

i said...

Oh no...that's so sad. Hope the ice cream tuck is coming back soon. Wouldn't do to miss some yummy ice cream!

Huskee and Hershey said...

Gee.. you are so close to the van!! I hope the ice cream man will come back soon.. Cheer up!

Ben & Darling said...

Chase chase it !!! We will sure drag our mom to the ice cream track. Hehe....but Im sire the ding dong man will be back soon...mayb u guys should sleep near the gate tonight.

Toffee said...

oh. so sad. I will keep my paws crossed that he comes to visit you soon!

Lady Kaos said...

I can't bleieve she didn't chase the truck down! I read the food fight post before I read this one and now I know you two totally deserve a trip to the icecream store! I'll start a petition if you need me to.

erin said...

What was that ice cream truck driver thinking driving away from 2 salivating dogs? Doesn't he know that dogs are the new kids? We're fur-kids. We're taking over!

Sami & Baylee said...

Sorry you missed the ice cream man. Maybe his was out of ice cream and that is why he left. I hope he comes back soon so you can get some! I just love ice cream but we don't have an ice cream truck come to our house. Darn!

HOLY HUSKIES! I have never seen one of those trucks before, but mom said she did as a little girl too! WOW!
