Shopping.. No Thanks!

Well its been another beautiful day, lots of sunshine with just enough of a cool breeze to make it pleasant.

Mum, Dad and the beans left me to do a spot of shopping at lunchtime. I was less than impressed at being left home alone until I saw the kinds of things on sale where they had been..

hmmm.. thank dog I was at home napping! Dad says they were shopping for fishing tackle! What kind of fishing uses tackle called that!

They also did some more covert shopping.. more bags of stuff I cannot tell you about.. YET! .. not even for a bully stick!
I assure you the purchases were not made at the same establishment the above photographed items were seen at though, and trust me when you find out what all this covert shopping is about you will be VERY relieved to hear that!

All in all it's been a relatively lazy day for me, just how I like my sundays.

As some will attest to, MFT like to do some butt swinging during her walks!

As for the other items, woo Brits talk funny!!

My mom snickered when she read the on called "the butt banger" This is for fishing? For WHAT she wants to know. hahahahahahahahahaha
We don't get it.

Those are some wierd things that store has. That is really sad that you couldn't go along. What were they thinking? Did you find any shoes to chew on while they were out?

I'm with you Ben. It's better to be napping at home looking at the stuff they were shopping for.

Ummmm what does a ButtBanger do and is it painful ?



JB's Big World said...

I sure don't like the names of those things! Butt swinger? I think next time they should go to a different store!

I didn't know what the first 2 things were, but I know what an Ugly Stick is! When Mom was looking for her fishing rods, she would have bought an Ugly Stick if they had one in red. Goofy woman! I hope the other shopping trip benefited you in a really good way!

Mary-Margaret O'Brien said...

Dear Ben - Thank you for the Birthday wishes. I'm so glad we are still friends, despite our "romance" not being workable due to distance and....let's be honest....I only came up to your kneecap, even standing on tippy-toe on all fours.

You are still my favorite Rotti, and I treasure the photo of you in your (swoooooon.....sigh....) helmet. I always did love a man in uniform.

Count me in on your 1000th DWB celebration plans. Without DWB, I never would have met YOU and 1000 other pups worldwide.

Love and sclurps...


The Girl said...

What kind of store is that, anyway??? Can't wait to hear about the better stuff!
