Christmas Shopping on a Sunday

Pickles here........with my first Official Blog post to tell you about my ***gasp** shopping spree with my momma
It all started out very exciting.   I got to go with my momma all by myself for some last minute Christmas purchases, and guess where we went!   Petsmart AND Petco!!!
Yep, my first shopping trip and we got to hit BOTH of the Dog MegaStores in one trip!


WOW!  This is amazing.   Let's go see what we can find for you to buy me!

Hmmmmmm.....these pig ears and cow hoof look very interesting.  
And I do believe they are on sale today!   We should stock up!

Will you look at the SIZE of this Dog Food Bag?!?!?!?!?!?


Then "IT" happened.

My momma spotted the Christmas clothes and outfits.    And look what she selected for me...


Now, I really will tolerate wearing a hat every now and then (it seems to make her happy). 
But, her found it necessary to have me WEAR IT AROUND THE STORE like this.......Price Tag and All!

And it even gets WORSE.......

When I looked closely at the price tag, it was labeled
Cat Apparel !!!
***Gasp***

Yep!  Her bought me a CAT Hat!




I just hope that hunky-looking Labrador didn't notice I am wearing a Santa Hat for Kittehs!

This is soooooooo embarassing.  I may never be able to show my face in this Petsmart again!!


On our way to the truck, with me trotting along the sidewalk, looking quite festive in my Cat Santa Hat, we noticed this display.......

It looks like a Stuffed Sibe Convention!!!!!!


Aren't they cute?!?!?!?!    Looks like my blog Sibe furrends!


Shopping is Exhausting!!

We won't tell a soul that you have a cat hat! You look dashing in it, and no one is going to see the tag, so it's all good, right? And you're one up on us - we won't let Mom put anything on our heads! ;-)

Looks like you've done pretty well there...we love the Santa hat, never mind it was designed for a cat.
Hey, you must be pretty small if you fit in a bag of food...don't worry, we wouldn't eat you...but if you were a cat...

Hi Pickles, lucky girl to go on that big shopping trip. The hat looks cute on you, and at least there isn't a Cat in the Hat - BOL.

You didn't happen to see a white sibe there, did you? We are trying to find one for our Dad.

Mango said...

What a mean trick to take you shopping and then force you to wear that dumb, yet totally adorable hat.

Slobbers,
Mango

scotsmad said...

Takes a STRONG character to wear a cat hat....you do look great. We think it was miss-labelled OR is a uni-pet hat.

Sounds like a great day out, though.

Frankie Furter said...

You knows Pickles, sometimes you has to weigh your opshuns - animal shelter with no home/home with wearing embarrassing kitteh hat. I knows, sometimes it do be a tuff choice. All I can woof is I is so happy I is WAY too big fur kitteh couture.

Tucker said...

Pickles, we think you look smashing in that kitteh hat!

Sam and Pippen said...

Pickles! If your momma was going to make you wander around the store with a hat on that still had the price tag attached she should have called you Minnie Pearl!

Sam and Pippen

PeeS. We won't even mention about it being for a kitteh...

Benny and Lily said...

You were set up and bribed obviously...But you look awfully cute in your new hat

houndstooth said...

Pickles, I am speechless! I can't believe your mom would subject you to such indignities! Still, I have to comment that you do look absolutely adorable in that hat, and if you take the tag off, nobody will ever know!

Dennis the Vizsla said...

It's like hitting Bloomingdale's and Macy's in one trip!

Pepsi Bum said...

Pickles! That's adorable! I know it isn't that cool to be strutting down the streets wearing a Santa Kitteh Cat, but you're too darn adorable!

Woofs,
Pepsi

Sandra said...

You look very adorable. You must immediately chew off that tag though. Can't have people seeing the dreaded c.a.t. word.

CindyLu's Muse said...

Oh, Pickles, you look purrfect in that hat! BOL Seriously, cats refuse to wear hats; that label is a pretend one anyway. You really look festive, bet all the labs were drooling over you!

Mr. Pip said...

Pickles, your secret is safe with me. Besides, what cat would wear a Santa Hat anyway! Rosie would slap me silly if I tried to put a hat on her.

Your pal, Pip

How fun! I love going to the store with my Momma, but I always make sure to RUN through the dress up section. Yuck! But you look super uber cute in your hat!

mayziegal said...

I'm sure glad you had such a good time, Pickles. And I bet you were a HOOOOGE help to your momma. Now, abouts that hat. It was most obviously mislabeled. It's very apparent that it was supposed to say "Pickles Hat" cuz it suits you just pawfectly!

Wiggles & Wags,
mayzie

Levi Mac said...

You look better than any kitteh would in that hat (sorry to all you kittehs but I's a lady dog man)BOL
Shopping is tiring- I have been on many trips with mom now and she be a shopping fool!

Remington said...

You are just too cute Pickles! Isn't shopping fun!

sprinkles said...

What a fun shopping trip, Pickles! And don't worry - your secret is safe with me. I'll never tell anyone your hat is really for a kitteh. You sure do look pretty wearing it, I bet the labradude thought so too.

Corbin said...

You sure do look cute in that hat! Better than any kittie would!
