and so it came to pass that i had to buy a gift for my boss.  ’twas christmas time and that is what one does.  but he doesn’t like gifts.

so, my coworker and i decide we will buy something special for his 8 month old daughter. (his daughter is the same age as pickles!)

but the coworker was sick, so buzzy came along to help me pick something out.


an hour, people.  an hour in the children’s over price specialty toy shop.  we actually had to leave for ice cream to ponder.  none of the dollies were the right color.  the puppets were too big and may have scared the dear lamb.  ultimately we selected what the sales youth described as an “imagination toy.”

oh dear god.

while we waited for the terrible free gift wrap job to be completed we tried things on, squeazed things, mocked things.

i think buzzy’s glasses sum it up regarding the childrens’ store.  “HELL NO!  WHEN PIGS FLY!!!”

SO glad i don’t have kids, and so is miss buzz.  her description of the entire shopping adventure:  “good form of birth control!”

in the long run we’ll save lots of money….plus….we want to keep all the fun and silly stuff for ourselves!

i took cody bear and pickles shopping tonight and i have to say, they were better then manyof kids i see at the grocery store lately.

checking out the cat food samples, but not taking any.

browsing the merchandise.

that was cody bear appreciating a fine statue.

then he decides to take a break.  he was a little tired since his baby sister kept picking up the handle of his leash and tugging.

then pickles fell asleep froggy style next to r. our friend and the shop owner.

pickles is much more confident than she has been around cody bear at home.  after shopping i took them home and the dogs hung out in the yard while i did lawn work.  it was the first time she ventured into parts of the yard without me and didn’t cry whenever cody bear ran by.  they’re coming along.

well, yesterday was a cool blog day.  many of us posted some turtles on line.  that was cool.  i think we should do it again!  not turtles though…we’ll have to think of something else.  maybe theagedcat or checkers or lavenderbay will have an idea….

in the meantime, here’s a dog in the grocery parking lot:

i had just bought some groceries and was getting in my car, when i saw this little dog next to me.  he looks pretty content.   cody bear hates the car and hates being left in the car.

maybe he’s happy because he knows his owner is in the health food store buying him some yummy snacks?

oh, let’s face it….i can only be wordless for so long on wednesdays.

so, here is cody bear on one of our stops yesterday while we partook in retail therapy…

our first stop is one of his favorite places in…the…WORLD!  it is a self-service dog wash and shop.  he does not like getting a bath there, but he LOVES the owner.  she is one of cody bear’s best friends.  (she owns the large poodle he fancies)

while there we bought this leave in conditioning spray that is supposed to make you shiny. (your dog shiny, rather) it was 16 bux, and i know it sounds like a fru fru purchase, but he has been SO STATICKY lately.  he snaps when you pet him and he gets really sensitive if you zap his ears or his shoulders.

we also bought a new type of kitty kibble.  spree likes the shwag cat chow, science diet.  but with the pet food scare, i’m trying hard to switch her to the holistic organic made in the u.s.a. stuff.

anyway, the owner has become a friend to both of us, so we were there for ever chatting.  as you see, once she stopped cuddling him, cody bear got bored and took a nap.

our next stop was more of a pet boutique really.  neither of us like it there.  most of her stuff is for people with tiny dogs that like to dress them up in couture dog clothes and put jewelry on them.  but, we went because they’re the only place in town that sells pet blinker batteries.  she gave them to us…so we bought some cheesy dog treats.

i don’t like going there because she has this chihuahua that barks at everyone, and anytime a person comes near her she trembles in fear.  the store owner says “she loves coming to work with mama.” but the dog is terrified.  i wish she could see how unhappy she makes her dog by taking her to work every day. oh well.

so, that, and three walks and three meals was pretty much his day.

rescue group hasn’t called yet.  its been four days…
