Christmas Shopping With Mom

Mom had to run errands yesterday and one of her stops was the pet store! Guess what? Mom said that I could go with her to Christmas shop! Yipppeeeeeeeee!
It was just me and mom - no PIA brother - just the two girls!There are already TONS of Christmas goodies all over the store! How festive everything looks!There are just too many decisions to be made here! How do we decide on the perfect gift?!Look at all of these stuffies! Maybe we should just buy them all, mom! oooooooooooooooooooo, check out that beautifully soft and wonderful bed! Follow me, mom, this is just the PERFECT gift! It's just the right size and it's such a nice color and it smells so good and I think we NEED this, mom!
(You have more than enough beds in the house as it is now, Maggie! Besides, we're Christmas shopping for others, not for you!) You're right mom! How selfish of me! hehehehe
How about some edibles? All of my friends LOVE treats!

There sure are lots of yummy looking looking things here, mom! Let's make sure we buy LOTS of them! Mitch and I can always eat the leftovers, right?!

What a fun trip this was! Thanks for letting me tag along and choose a couple of gifts for two very special friends!

Our Christmas cards are all done and we'll be shipping some of them out today so be on the lookout!
So until next time.................

Love ya lots,

Maggie and Mitch


  1. Wow cards all done ? Be are left with 1/4 more ! Wee! those toys !! Ahh ! All I want ! As I am a toy lover ! How I wish Singapore pet shops are like that , but too bad ! We haven't have any like yours ! Keep a look out for our cards too alright (:

    xoxo ,

  2. wow... i am so jealous, envious and whatnot. for one, we have not started on the cards yet. buhuhuhu... manang had been in and out all over the Philippines for the past 3 weeks and seeing all of our friends mailing their cards and all makes us want to cry... buhuhuhu.

    Thanks for the tour Maggie. The toys and doggie stuff looked really lovely. We enjoyed more knowing that you can just go in the stores and shop personally for treats and things you want. We only have that in Manila. booo... I'm so envious again, I'm turning greener than a martian dog.

    drooly kisses,


  3. What a great trip to the pet store, Maggie! You controlled yourself very well! We would have had our lips on every toy and treat!

    Poppy, Penny & Patches

  4. You are so lucky, Maggie!!! You get to shop for Christmas gift.

    This year mom has no time to do her shopping so most were bought online. We hope we will be in time for Christmas.

  5. The pet shop at your side looks so much more interesting than ours.

    Talking about gifts, I think Mitch's Bday pressie is going to be late... oops... I wonder how long will his bday be extended. hee...


  6. You are soo lucky that you got to go shop with your mom! I hope you got to pick a prize for yourself!

    Our picture is all done and our cards will be out soon too! I hope you enjoy it!


  7. So kool that that pet shop sells Christmas toys! I see a Christmas Loofah dog there! WOW! You too finished with your cards! I AM impressed!

  22. Thanks for voting for my big brother Chance. I worship him!

    Hey, you're the same color as those cute teddy bears in the store! I hope they don't mix you up with the merchandise and put a price tag on you!!!

    (of course it would say "Priceless")

    Your pal,

  23. Impressive! Can I borrow your Mom?

    Wags, Eric x

  24. Girls day out. Those are so much fun.

  25. OMG! This is the most funnest everest! Maggie! How cool that you gotted to go on this trippie! OMG! OMG! OMG!


    Putter ...

    ps ... I am afraid of CASH registers so I can't go on such FUN outings! OMG! OMG! OMG!

  26. Wow, that store looks like lots of fun, Maggie! I would have gone crazy in that place ~~~ no holding me back!

  27. Dang! Eerybody seems to have their cards ready to amil out and we haven't even started thinking about ours yet! We're emailing ours so I guess we kind of have a littel lextra time to get them out but still! I better tell Mom she needs to get busy!
    That looked like a very fun trip! I wish our pet store was closer so I could get to go. It's an all day trip when Mom and Dad go though which means dogs have to stay at home.

  28. Hey tell mom you were just checking out the stuff so you could put it on your Xmas list..

    Big Sloppy Kisses
    Gus, Louie and Callie

    What has mom verging on panic is seeing that your cards are-gasp-done!!! She says she better get the lead out!!!! Yikes.

  30. I know we love to have one-on-one time with our Mom, too. It's makes us feel very special. Those toys sure looked like a lot of fun!

    Happy Tails,

  31. Great that you had a girls day out with your mom. It looks like you were in stuffie paradise. You exhibited amazing self control for not going crazy in that store, Maggie.

    Your friend,

  32. That looks like torture not shopping! We want everything! All of it! H-Mom can't resist anything pink ... the sparkly collars are like H-Mom magnets!

  33. M&M, That bed you were eyeing up looks just like one of mine, except mom ordered mine from L L Bean, back when our dollar still had some value.

    Thanks so much for voting for Gabriel. He really, truly is one of the best people I know. He's done so many amazing things for other people, he really deserves to win. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!


  34. Hi, Maggie!
    I am so jealous! There are no pet stores here!
    Glad you had a nice shopping time with your mom!
