One Fabulous Afternoon

What a fabulous afternoon we had! Dad needed to have his truck washed so mom and dad decided to make an adventure out of it! We headed up to the car wash in Madison, which is about 1/2 hour away! Once we got there, we had to get out of the truck and wait outside while the truck went through all of the soapy brushy wash! As luck would have it, the car that pulled in behind us to have their vehicle washed had doggies in it!We're outside and they're inside - 6 of them! Can you see them all? They were all sizes and two of them weren't even on leashes! Mom couldn't get over how well-behaved they all were!Unfortunately, mom didn't get a picture of them as they all came out of the building to get into their car! What a dummy! They filed right past us all grouped together like a family and they actually listened to their mom and she got them all inside their car with no yelling or HBO words! hehehe

Our next stop was Wendy's!
We've never been to Wendy's before! Mom gobbled up her hamburger and didn't share any with us and dad was ooooooohing and aaaaaaaaahing over his fish sandwich and he didn't share either but we did get French fries! Yeaaaaaaaaaaa!Next stop was Durham ice cream! whoooooooohooooo
Both mom and dad got swirly chocolate and vanilla cups with a cone on top! They only shared the vanilla ice cream with us, no chocolate, but hey, who cares! It's ice cream, right?!What a fabulously fun afternoon we had! Thanks, mom and dad! Can we do this again real soon?!

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

Love ya lots,

Maggie and Mitch

OoooOoooo!What a fun day.Can you believe those 6 GOOD dogs?! I hope our mommy didn't see that. Hate to raise her expectations!
You are SO lucky to get ice cream.We might get some on Hootie's birthday. Depends on if we are on the road or not.

OOOOOOOOHHHHHHHH- ice cream and french fries - this is the breakfast of champions!!!!!! Sounds like you had a great day out - not sure about those well behaved doggies - not even one bark?

I am off with D to buy some fabric and sometimes we stop by a veggie fast food place - and I get something too! So I feel your excitement!

Lots of licks

Jake of Florida said...

We get so jelly whenever we stop by and read about all the foodables your parents share with you!!

What do we get? A sting bean. Or a piece of carrot. Or a slice of apple. Sometimes one stinkin' frozen blueberry in the morning


But we're happy to see how much you enjoy yourselves and what a wonderful fun afternoon you had!!

Lots of wirey love,

Jake and Just Harry

Niamh said...

Car wash, Wendy's and ice cream!!! Wow! I hope that you get to do that every weekend. Maybe next time you will get some burger to go with the fries. Glad you and your people had such a good time.

Your friend,

Ruby and Penny said...

Hi Maggie & Mitch
That does sound like fun.
When we go to the car wash, we wait inside the car & watch all the soapy action. Next time we're begging mom to do it like you guys, food & all.
Love Ruby & Penny

Snowball said...

wow... wow... wow... You had such a wonderful afternoon. Mine was boring.... sigh...


Noah the Airedale said...

OMG you guys...the ice-cream again. How lucky are you two.
We would have gone nuts if we saw those dogs...yep we bark like nutters especially if we see lots of dogs. It takes us a while to settle. You both sound like good dales.

Rocky Creek Scotties and Rocky Creek Ramblings said...

You guys sure had a fun afternoon - so did we, but no ice cream or fries.

We can't believe how good those dogs were - hehe - we would never do that!! - well maybe Java would, but he's old.

Gus said...

Ahhhh, cream.And car washes. I like to go with muzzer to the one where you stay in the car. Then I bark and bark and bark and bark.

We haven't done that for a while. Wonder why?


Lucia said...

Ciao M&M!

What a fantastico day you had! I, myself, always enjoy an outing at the carwashy because I like to try to bite the water spray when it hits the windows. For some reason, this makes la mia ragazza laugh like an idiota -- santa vacca. (She also giggled herself silly over your comment about "HBO words"!!)

That certainly was a super-duper Sunday, M&M (plus, ice cream ... plus, fries!) -- thank you for sharing it with us!

Tanti baci!

Checkers & Chess said...

looks like you two had a great day - SIX well-behaved dogs???? oooohhhh - glad my mommy didn't see them - she'd be going on an on about it and asking me why I couldn't behave like that.

French fries and ice cream? now that's living

The Black and Tans. said...

OOh yummy, you certainly had a terrierific afternoon with all those goodies to eat.

Clive said...

Ice-cream - my absolute favourite!

I love the car wash too with the little man - he used to hate going through it - but now we just sit together and he has a good laugh at all the foam.

lots of woofs

Archie and Melissa said...

Kelly said...

You two had SUCH a fun afternoon! I have decided that my Momma is not as fun as your pawrents. I am thinking about moving in with you guys. Is that ok? I can pretend to be a 'dale!

bbes tribe said...

What fun!! Ice cream, and french fries are GOOD. We get them too sometimes. Our humans share with us too like yours do. We are all so lucky. Have a fun day!
Ernie & Sasha

Marvin -The Hollow Hound said...

oh I am really envious, you always have so much beautiful looking ice cream. As you know, I have never even put my Marvin tongue in ice cream. Perhaps I will one day, I live in hope anyways.

You looked as if you had a totally brilliant day! And the car wash looked fun. Those other dogs sure looked well behaved, like you and Mitch!

lotsaluv Marvin xxxxxxx

Amber and Nala said...

All those doggies got into one car that easily??? They must have been actors and not real doggies!! ;) What a great day and you even got french fries and ice cream...YUM-O!!


Joe Stains said...

my Dad went to the car wash this weekend and did NOT take us, what a rip off! I sure do think that Wendys makes some of the best fries, I used to get them all the time when I would go to my gram and gramps house! It looks like a great day to me!!

Putter said...


It is all I can say!




Mango the Maltese kiddo said...

Of all the sad news lately in DWB, your post is a spirit lifting one, thanks M&M. Life is beautiful isn't it? Oh, a fine afternoon with loving family to go for a car wash, hamburgers and ice cream, it's priceless!
I love all your Thursday color post, this week is rust and I know for sure you're always pawsome about posting nice pictures!
M&M, how can we help a young bird mother feeding their newly hatched birdies? I remember once you found some young birds, is it correct?
We didn't know that they built a nest in my mom's flower basket near our bedroom door until one day we heard the little ones chirping. My mom place a bowl of bird food and water next to the basket but the bird mom seems not touching it.
The little mother is still doing a fabulous jos raising her kids, maybe we should not interfere her duty, what do you think?
Love ya lot

Tillybaby said...

looks like fun. come on over again..we are back!!!!

Arran, Arthur and Mum said...

oh wow! You twos has got to be some of the luckiest dogs in the whole world!!

Hollie and Janie said...

Oh my! That icecream looks divine! It has gotten so hot here in Alabama!! I wish I could have gone with yall! Mom says she has heard rumors of doggies who behave off their leash....

Laurie, Woo's Editor said...

What a day you guys had. Those dogs inside were so cool, no leashes and all owning that joint.
We can't wait to have our first seasonal ice cream over here you make it look so good!
Love and Licks,

Mack said...

What awesome fun you guys had!
We don't even have a Wendy's close to us, do you believe that!!!

Petra said...

I can't believe you guys got french fries and ice cream BOTH in the same day! Fabulous for sure.

the many Bs said...

hi M&M, what a fun trip to the car wash. it looks like you kiddos were good dogs too, right! you earned your french fries and ice cream. hey, that reminds us, we had cheeseburgers last night! isn't food the best!?!


erin said...

I'm scared of the car wash but I suppose it would be worth it if I got ice cream afterwards.

Cowspotdog said...

you guys are so spoiled.......but what a great day. Car washes are so much fun, I love going in with mom when she washes her car.....but we don't get to have ice-cream afterwards :(

Lois Lane/Laney said...

Yummy! Sounds like you guys had a great day!

Sophie Brador said...

Sounds like a fun trip. Mom is jealous of that ice cream. She says she can't eat that stuff. That she could just as easily strap it to her butt straight away because that's where it will end up. Whatever that means.


The Army of Four said...

What a GREAT day! Did you know I was named after Dave Thomas of Wendy's restaurant fame? Wooo!

Anonymous said...

French fries and ice cream?!?! I'm soooo jealous!! When can I move in with you!?

I don't think those would be on my diet... :(


Samantha ~ Holly and Zac ~ said...

What a fun day you had, we hope you get to do it again soon. :-)

Wow...You guys definitely had a fun day. I'll have to get on my hoomans about that french fry and ice cream thing...they sound gooooood! That's funny about the family of doggies that was so well behaved.

Sniffs and licks,


Teddy said...

That sounds like great fun! Isn't it nice watching the car getting groomed and bathed, while you stay perfectly dry?

You've got the best parents because they take you out for ice cream. I have to beg and beg to get a teeny tiny taste of it from my mom. She's greedy.


Lorenza said...

Hi, Maggie and Mitch!
You had a wonderful day!
Truck wash, Wendy's, ice cream!
Kisses and hugs

Tweedles -- that's me said...

What a fun and exciting day you had- ice cream and a bite of a french fry. Sounds like fun to me!
I have never been to a car wash- how fun.

Scottie the 'Cutie' said...

Ooh...that IS a fabulous day indeed! I've never been to a car wash before! It sounded very interesting indeed!

And Wendy's! Mom said she saw one here in Malaysia too, but she hasn't been there yet...maybe I can persuade her to get me something from there too! heh!

OOOOH...Ice-cream! Yumm! *drools*

Huskee and Hershey said...

OMdoG... Six well-behaved dogs? That's unheard of!! Mom said she'd NEVER allow Hershey to be off leash ever again after the episode where she ran across the road.. LOL!!

Dexter said...

Two of my favorite things; car ride and foodables. Off leash doggies are not such a big deal as far as I can see. Such a fuss. I didn't see any dales in that pack.

I hope it isn't as hot in Connect the Dots as it is going to be here. Try to stay cool.


Dughallmor Beagles said...

Oh wow....what an exciting time that was....we felt like we were right there with you....we aarrooo'ed at the carwash thingy....we aaroooo'd at the 6 good dogs and that ice cream......*drools*....wasn't it the best? Hehe :D
Slobbers xx

Kess And Her Mama said...

It is a fabulous afternoon indeed! Couldn't ask for more.'ve given me an idea about the ice cream. I'll have to work out some beagle doggedness to convince my human to give me ice cream on my birthday tomorrow!

Aki and Poopie said...

hi there M&M!

hmmm.. fish and fries eh? hehe.. we promised, we didnt cheat, but sissy is actually eating teh same thing. (except taht its from Mcdonalds and it was bec. she got envious of the 4B's mum' bday celebration.. hehe.

those dogs sounded really cool. at my age, the hoomans would not really go as far as letting me off with 10 meters from our house, bec. i'm so impossible to deal with.. hehe..

just a little curious.. do you think theyd allow me to be "washed" in the car wash too? hehe..

drooly kisses,

TwoSpecialWires said...

We were about to ask why you didn't get a vanilla Frosty at Wendy's AND NOW WE KNOW!!!

YUMMMM! You've got me excited, now, for the long road trip to Florida this summer! Fergi has no idea how great it is to be a (shhhh....spoiled) dog in families like ours!

Hope you get to go back again soon!
Jake (and Fergi)

OOh!! What a fun day! Sad your mommee didn't share her hamburger--we hear they're really good. But hey--the ice cream was a great treat!

Gus and Waldo

CoCo said...

That is so funny! "HBO words." I guess you can say that my Uncle Gary uses those words a lot! My Daddy loves Wendy's too! I heard him oooh and aahhh over his fish burger last week! Looks like you two had a blast!


Eric said...

More ice cream and fries...boy oh boy you two are the luckiest doggies. Can we do a Mom swap if they won't adopt me?

Wiry wags, Eric xx

The Bumpass Hounds said...

Heya M&M,
Shock of all shocks; Maggie and Mitch on an outing that includes burger, fries and ice cream. This is such unexpected behavior fro youse two....NOT! Don't mind us, we're just envious that y'all eat so much....better than us we mean.

Mango the Maltese kiddo said...

It's me again.
My mom leaves the bird food which she bought from the store, I guess bird don't like it. Bird mom just flies by that, doesn't seem to be aware of a food bank nearby.
So far, bird mom comes and goes to feed her babies regularly. She is very small but seems know how to raise her kids very well.
I really don't know how to raise a Maltesenette if I ever have one, hehe!

Moco said...

You sure get to go to all the best places.

What a pawsome place. I wish we have Wendy's here too
