Bella-T + Me

Before I jumped off the couch and gimped my foot, I had a really fun weekend. On Saturday we went across the grey bridge to Pt Isabel and met up with Bellatrix. It was her first time there so I showed her where people drop food on the ground sometimes, and all the best places to pee.

I'm pretty sure Bellatrix had a fun time.

After introducing Bella-T to play at Pt Isabel, it was my turn to try a new sport: shopping. I think I've mentioned that my human is the worst shopper on the planet. And I didn't know this was a problem until Bellatrix's human started shopping for me.

Because shopping = cool pet stores and cool pet stores = cool food.

So, we headed to a store called Redhound in a place called Berkeley. Dutch remembered going there for training classes when he first moved in with my human, but he doesn't remember any shopping.

This one fits.

Shopping at Redhound was really cool. There were loads of toys and snacks and things to sniff, and the people in the store were all supernice. Even the shop dog was cool (his name is Fella) and I was totally OK with my human using the Nikon on him.

Pretty please??

While I was busy checking out the goods, Bellatrix got bellyrubs galore and Dutch helped a customer pick out a dog bed. Lucky for me, Dutch is tall enough to scope out snacks that I can't see or smell because these suckers are TASTY. I usually don't bother chewing, but I took my time with this snack.

I got the blue one, can you guess which one Dutch got?

Hi Puglet,

If we didn't know Dutch so well we'd guess he'd pick the manly orange one, but since we know he's probably reverted from his macho ways, we're guessing PINK?

Bella-T sure is a pretty black puggie, I'll bet her nice shiny coat had you at 'woof' :) She's lucky to have a pal like you to show her the ropes of Pt. Isabel! And you're lucky that her supercool human can teach your human how to shop!

Mr. P, Good Morning
You and Bella-T make a spanking nice couple. I met a gorgeous black pug gal at Nationals, her name is Maybelline and she is *to die for*. I was ga ga over her. Only problem, she lives in another state not Texas.. drat!

Just a guess, Dutch got the pink cookie. Dutch is just way to sexy!

Oh I had a blast with you guys on Saturday. Pt. Isabell was so much fun, you guys totally showed me the ropes. Mom hates to shop for human stuff, but when it comes to shopping for me, she'll stop at nothing! She even said we'll have to go back to Redhound, if I'm good at Pt. Isabel again, that she'll let me get one of those super yummy cookie things. I promised to be good, because you guys make those cookies sound super duper yummers!
Mom says thanks for making me look so cute in the picture. She says it even makes me look slim, so if you photoshopped...she doesn't want to know....hehe...
Anytime you want to go shopping Pug, mom is many pet stores with little time....

Looks like you have alot of great stores and everyone had a wonderful time shopping. We guess that Dutch got the pink one, who says that boys can't have pink.

Looks like a great time! We will have to add both places to our list of adventures. Betting that Dutch picked the pink, of course. But, have you ever considered maybe he is color blind???

Oh yeah. Totally the pink one! I got the macho blue one with sprinkles on top. TASTE-Y.

I like to hike and swim and fetch and stuff... but this shopping thing might be the best sport ever.

I bet you picked the big yellow bone! What a treat to visit a new place and shop!!

Thanks for taking us along via the pictures.

Drools and licks,

Oh how I would have loved to go shopping with all 3 of you but I probably would've barked too much and spoiled a perfectly good shopping spree! Hee--Hee!
I dunno what color treat Dutch would like the best so I'm guessing he snagged all of them when no one was looking!

Noodle said...

Shopping, eh? I'm not much of a sports dog so I dunno. Do you HAVE to do the shopping thing to get the treats?

Minnie Moo said...

That picture of you and Bella is the cutest eva!!!!


Minnie Moo and Lincoln too

Mel said...

Wow you and Bella are so super cute together Puglet!
Shopping is a real sport, so I'm glad you had a guide to learn how. Watch out for you paws, I always get sore feet when I shop. :D

THE PUGLET said...

Hiya Noodle -

Uhm, from what I understand, *someone* has to do the shopping in order for you to get the treats. Dutch is realllly into the shopping thing, maybe he could be like a surrogate or something for you?

Noodle said...

Oooh... A personal shopper! I think I've heard of those....

OMG I JUST FREAKED OUT! My pug is named "Bellatrix" too!!! She's gorgeous and so is my little Bellatrix!
Love this blog- will be reading constantly :)
