My Trip to Petco

Mom always said that she'd never take me to Petco because I'm too much of a hooligan.  Well, guess what?  She gave in and took me!

I saw a bunny up close - much closer than the ones that hop around in my yard.

 My Gotcha Day is Sunday and mom said that I could pick out anything that I wanted - well, anything within reason.
 This is my brand of kibble, mom.  Can we go for the bison and venison flavor this time, pretty please?
 He's kinda cute!
 A beef trachea!
 We're headed out to the workshop so mom can carve.  Thank you for not making me wait till Sunday, mom!

I have to think of a really good name for my new donkey stuffie. Any ideas?
 I told you I'd be a good boy at Petco, mom!  Can we please go again soon?

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

Love ya lots,

I haven't gotten to go there or to Petsmart in TOOOOOOO long! Mom is such a slakhker especially since they are both less than three or so miles away!

As fur your new pal, maybe Quixote

Happy FrEYEday!

PeeEssWoo: Woo are khorrekht about the weather - we are SO hopeful it wont be HOT HOT HOT! Akhtually, our weather people had said in past years when we had early big snows, we didn't get much more - sadly, they did khall this one ;-(

Princess Patches said...

Wow, Mitch! A trip to PetCo for your Gotcha Day! It doesn't get much better than that!

How about "Ridonculous" for your donkey's name? It's kind of long, but my mom laughs every time she hears it!


Dexter said...

Mitch, buddy, I have been eating the bison blend of my kibbles for a while, but last night momma actually looked at the price and I might have to go back to salmon. Ish.

The cow innards make for wonderful chewing action and whatnot, don't you agree?

Congrats on your big adventure. More to come, I hope.

You are one lucky boy!! There is no Petco close to where we live so we never get to go there. Sometimes one of us gets to go to Lowes or to Grannys but that's about it.

Gus said...

Oh wow. what a marvelous place. We haven't been in years. Not since Dad heard the words "dogs fighting in center aisle."


Niamh said...

You were very good to be so close to that bunny! We don't know if we could have had such self control. So glad that your mom took you to Petco and that you got such nice stuff for your special day. Way to celebrate!

Your friends,
Niamh & Ambrose

Hi Mitch, that was a great adventure. I've never been to a Petsmart. Now I know what it looks like there.
The donkey is cute. I would call it a Hoover.
Lots of Love

Fred said...

Looks like you made a great choice, and you were SO good! I have shamed Old Girl many times in the Petco.

I don't sees why they wouldn't let you has a bunny?
But I has nevers seen a real cow neck befores, dat looky awfully yummy! I could get used to dat.

I'll has to ponder a donkey name.

Happy Almost Birfday!


Cowspotdog said...

Way to go Mitch - we are so happy to see you out and about enjoying yourself and your Mom picked the bestest place to take you and you a scored treat and a new toy! Mom actually had a donkey back home and it was called peppermint because it LOVED peppermints - she would almost chew a hole through your pocket trying to get to them!

Unknown said...

A big shopping for your gotcha day and you''d got yourself so many stuffs, you're so lucky to have a generous mom!

I do wish I could get something like your beef trachea, it sounds yummy. BUT I'm on a VERY strick diet recently. Sob sob.


My Dog Sam - Ruptured Disk said...

Hi Mitch, oh that's really nice of your mom. And a beef chewie and a donkey stuffie too. I think that your mom has a soft spot for you :) As far as a name for your donkey, my suggestion is Francis. Ah I think that Sunshade's evil mum has a bunny that she may be willing to give you...

Remington said...

I am happy you had a fun adventure! I love to go shopping!

animal lover, quilt lover said...

Mitch, it looks like this is just what you needed!!! A trip to Pet -Co. A name for your new toy~~~~~
Tonkey!!!! We like that name!!!
Zoie would have it tore up in less than a day!!!

The Army of Four said...

That is so nice! I haven't been to Petco, either. Maybe my mom will take me soon. I'd love to get one of those donkeys! Maybe if you ask him, he'll tell you what his name is!
Play bows,
PS: Do we get to see what your mom is carving!?!?

Millie and Walter said...

It looks like you really scored at Petco Mitch. I'm glad your mom gave you your gotcha presents early so you could enjoy them while helping her in the workshop.

I love going to the pet store, and it's even better when you get to come home with a treat AND a toy!


Reuben said...

Hi Mitch, Reuben here! I has seen you comment on Oskar's dogblog, and I has come to say hello. I gots to say, your Petco trip looks very much like the Petsmart trip I just took! Chewies and everything! I hopes you get to go again soon.


SissySees said...

Given that Mama's second-favorite silly Christmas song is Dominick the Donkey... call him Dom!

And I - Gg - have been in PetsMart & PetCo and found it overwhelmingly over-stimulating. However, Sis has never been because indeed... she is a hooliganette.

Sue said...

Isn't it fun to go shopping? We like watching the mice in their cages. Ummm... the great smells in stores!

The Websters said...

WOAH! That's our kibble too. Bison is my favorite but I've never had the guess is that's the best.



The Thuglets said...

We go to PetSmart. Beckett is kind of afraid to go in because we also go to the groomers there.

What about Eeyore for your donkey's name. Yeah I know, it's been done.

Sweet William The Scot said...

Petco WOW you got to go to my store. I picked out something once, but I had to put it back my pockets were empty no money for stuffies.

Bella Roxy & Macdui said...


Great birthday outing and we don't think you'd ever be a hooligan!

We're having Bison kibble, too at the moment...usually we have salmon...different brand, though.

We'll be by to wish you a happy birthday on the day.

XXXOOO Daisy, Bella &Roxy

Hi Mitch
I am so happy for you- that you got to go to Petco! Its been a long times since I went to Petsmart.. and its always so fun. But, I never seen a bunny there.
Your mom was real cool that she let you pick out what you wanted.
Wow- that trachea is huge!
When Sunday comes, I hope you have a great Gotcha Day
Let me know what you name the donkey.
We used to have 2 donkeys. Their names were Hershy and Katie Bell

Ellen said...

I can tell you had a wonderful time at Petco. You were such a good boy. I'm sure you will get to go back. I love all your pictures. You are so precious Mitch. Happy gotcha day.

Oreo said...

Looks like you knew just what you wanted. watch out fur those wild bunnies!!


Unknown said...

Hi Mitch,

I thought you looked like the perfect gentleman in the store...where was the hooligan?? :-)

And that beef trachea you picked out looked DELICIOUS!!

Bassetmomma said...

Weren't you lucky to go shopping at PetSmart!!

bichonpawz said...

We haven't been to PetCo in a really long time!!! We think you made quite a haul there and it does not look like you were a hooligan! We think that Eeyore would be a good name for your new little guy! Hope you have a great day!! xoxo Chloe and LadyBug

Unknown said...

Oh Mitch - me again! I;m just catching up with blog friends and just visited the Ao4 blog and saw that beautiful wooden bowl your human carved! WOW!! She is so talented!!! I don't know if your human is selling them but we would have definitely ordered one - if only we didn't live in Australia!! :-( The Customs Humans are so mean here - they confiscate anything that has plant or animal material in it, from foreign countries! So we will have to just enjoy it through the internet! :-)

parlance said...

Mitch, that sure looks like a good gotcha day outing.

Are the beef tracheas good eating? I've seen them in the shops but have never bought one yet.

Happy Gotcha Day! Sounds like a fun time!
