Retail Therapy - Dog Style

My moms was having a bad day at work, so she decided to leave early and go to hers favorite dog department stores called The Pet Stop.  She wanted to look for a new outfit fur me to wear to some of the big pawty events going on in BlogLand.  This store be kinda 'fru-fru',  but it has lots of dog clothes to buy and bout a million dog toys!   And they just LOVE to take my moms greenpapers there...isn't that nice?

Well, when she walked in the Pet Stop, the salesman recognized hers immediately, and thought to himself  'Oh yay! One of the dog nuts is here to drop a load of money on dog clothes and toys"    "Oh yay! One of my favorite customers!"
So moms browsed through all the latest doggie duds and dressies . After minutes and minutes and hours, the salesman decided to 'help' moms out, cuz she prolly wasn't spending her greenpapers fast enough looked all confused and concerned at this point.

SalesmanCan I help you?
Moms: Well, I'm looking for a dress today.  And since its for my dachshund, and she has short legs, it cannot have sleeves.
Salesman: (rolling eyes behinds moms back) Oh yes, I remember now. Have you seen these cute little sundresses over here?
Moms: Well..........I have looked at those already, but I need something a little more Formal.
Salesman: (more eye rolling)  Formal?  Okay. I think these over here could be considered more expensive formal
Moms: Well............I did see those, but I would really prefer something in Yellow. You see, it is for a Wedding, and the theme color is Yellow.  But I would also like to be able to wear it for a formal party that is also coming up soon.  But I may need two separate outfits for the events.....
Salesman: So your dog is going to be in a wedding???
Moms: Well.....................She is not actually in a wedding, she is going to a wedding.  But, truthfully, it is a wedding between 3 dachshund friends.  And the party is being hosted by another dog friend.
Salesman: (not speaking......just staring)
Moms: (trying to clarify this situation, but making matters worse)  Oh!  Well, she doesn't actually GO to the wedding and parties, we just all send pictures to the party host and then.....oh never mind.
Salesman: (not speaking...just staring)

At this point, my moms picks out the nearest dressie she thinks might work for me, and asks the salesman to check her out.  The Salesman gets alot of crazy doggie peoples in his store, butt my moms didn't want to win the prize for being the craziest!
 .......butt, here be the best part.....

Salesman: (afters taking moms greenpapers and bagging up my dressie)  Excuse me, but did you say...a wedding between 3 dachshunds?!?!?!?!

My moms just laughed and laughed!    It made her bad day at da office all go away.

Our mom says if being crazy makes a bad day go away, lets be crazy all the time! She also says that's why we are in blogland... she doesn't know anyone else near as crazy as her is so she enjoys all the other crazy dog moms and dads out there!

Bwaaaa ha ha ha! She left out the part about Puddles being the preacher! Now that would have made him forget to ask her for her green papers!

Tee hee! Maybe you should just ask Lorenza if her grandma can make you a yellow dress!

Your pal, Pip

We all know your mom's not nutty. I bet your dress is lovely. Mom had the same thing happen to her, when she went into a shop for a bow tie for the wedding, she could have just brought it and walked out, O no she said its for the dog he's going to a wedding, mom say's the mans face was a picture. Made her laugh.
See Yea George xxx
