I Was Duped!

Hi Everybuddy -

Whew! Whatta day! I'm dictating this to Mom because I'm resting. You recall that today was a MaPaw Meet and Greet at our most favorite food and treat store - Trappe Feed. The weather was great and the sun was shining. We were off and running early. It was Meeka's turn to visit the V-E-T. Nothing serious - just a visit to make sure he was doing okay and to get his shots which Mom claims keeps us healthy. He tested out a brand new vet today and he gives the practice two paws up. It's my turn next month so I'll have to see for myself. After that Mom said it was my turn to go for a ride. Woo! That meant I was going to the Meet and Greet! Meeka didn't mind because he wanted to nap. I hopped into the Jeep and away we went. Dad made the remark that I'm the kid that constantly says "Are we there yet are we there yet are we there yet??". I don't know what his point is on that. Finally we arrived! There were people everywhere. What a great turnout. Mom promises to post pictures on that tomorrow. Today, I'd like to tell you how I was tricked! Yep.....I sure was. We walked around and visited for awhile. I licked some faces and sniffed some butts like any good doggie should. After that Dad told me it was time to stand in line. Stand in line for what I wondered. I could see treats everywhere so I figured it was definately for something yummy! People pet me as I was in line so it wasn't too bad. I was as patient as a Siberian could be. I could just taste those treats! Finally we arrived at the front of the line. Guess what I saw!??? A nail clipping station! OH NO WAY! I cannot believe they are doing this to me! This is just wrong. Look:

"Surely there must be a law against this!"

"I see you Mom. Remember those new slippers you bought?"

"Yeah yeah - I'm cute. Can I have my paw back please??"

"Find a happy place....find a happy place....."

Oh my dogness was I ever glad to get down off that table! What were they thinkin? The moral to this story is be aware, be VERY aware of which line you're standing in. That's okay though because I gave Mom the evil Siberian eye and guess what? Look:

"Woo! Look at those! One fell Mom."

So I survived the evil nail clipping and was rewarded by the way - I got some yummy frosted cookies with sprinkles on them. I shared them with the others when I got home. And we got all the other treats and our favorite canned food. Life is good.

Tune in tomorrow for more pictures of our wonderful day at the Meet & Greet!

Oh no, Echo, that makes me SOOOOOOOOOOO glad we weren't there. Hope you had a good day besides that horrific event.

Woo woo, Kelsey Ann

You've got to be kidding me? A nail clipping station???

I thought for sure you were going to say that you had to wear the silly donation vest, but a nail clipping station is 10 times worse!

(try putting me on a table, kiss those eardrums good-bye)

I don't care for nail clipping much either. least they made up for it in the end. Those treats and canned food looks yummy! Man....I think you have Halloween early with all of those treats!

You so deserve those treats after the torture they put you through by cutting your nails!

Wow, now I am really glad mom & dad went to New York for the day instead of bringing us! We like that store a lot, but that was an evil thing to do to a pup.

That is terrible that you had to get your nails clipped!! I just chew on my dew claw, so it never needs trimmed and my other nails get worn down on walks. I guess I'm lucky. Kat has to get her dew claw trimmed sometimes though. At least you got some treats out of the whole deal.

Doggie Abuse!! I can tell you are NOT happy about the nail clipping. None of us like it either, so we understand your disdain at your humans.

At least they made up for it with all those goodies!

Kelsey Ann - It was a dirty trick! No more lines for me!

Meeshka - Mom said she expected to hear the Siberian Scream Of Death but I was quiet.

Amici - They did make it up to me. Lucky for them.

Sitka - Torture for sure!

G&S - Beware the line for next year.

Steve - You can bet I'll be working harder on my nails now!

Holly - Mom figured it was either treats or her slippres.

Oh-Woo, that was terrible! Did you let their ears have it while they were clipping you? At least you got treats afterwards for compensation.
