A Bummer Day…

Today was a bummer day for all of us Corgis! All the pups got left home because they haven’t had their second Puppy Shot and they are due for it. Mom’s got it ordered but it hasn’t come in yet.

The rest of us went into town, but then we ended up staying all day at Mimi’s with Robert because Mom and Dad left after church to go to Bakersfield to get Mom’s picture of Mango from the Art Gallery where it has been in a special Art Show for the top Kern County Fair Art winners. She had won the Chairman’s Choice Award, so they sent her an invitation. It has been on display for the past month there, but will soon be headed to Mango's house.

They also had to do some shopping at a new Super Center, and didn’t know if I could get in. They said that I wouldn’t have been happy sitting in the car for so long waiting for them. I don’t know about that! It was BORING at Auntie Mimi’s except for playing with her girls and chasing the wild cats that come into her back yard!

At least they got a lot of the essentials that they said we were running low on… like Dog Food, and Chicken Breast Jerky, and Lamb & Rice Jerky, and chewies, and yogurt & canned milk for making the puppy milk supplement that they still get once a day. I GUESS… we can forgive them… especially since, when we got home, we got some left over cake and some cheese, and… I guess they WERE feeling pretty guilty!

Ok, so we learn something new every day. We didn't know your Mom was such a brilliant artist! That picture of Mango is truly awesome! Congratulations on the award that went along with it. Wow, Mango's mom is going to be very happy!

Mango said...

Sometimes the people have to go to non dog places. That really stinks. But they at least brought back stuff for you.

I like seeing my face with all those ribbons next to it.

Congrats on your Mango art.
His fur looks like velvet, how the heck did you do that? Oh my...corgi kids love it when WE feel guilty.
It always works to their advantage, either in belly rubs, or belly treats!

Guilt=treats....they are smart dogs to figure it all out at such a young age. Freya has me wrapped around her...paw.

The art is beautiful!

Mango looks magnificently majestic - your mom is very clever.
Congratulations to her for her Chairman's choice Award.
We are sorry the pups had to stay behind but they still need lots of sleep!
Not like you big grown up guys.

Mango's portrait is awesome!
It is not funny when we are left at home while our humans go shopping, right??
But they brought you delicious things!
Chicken breast jerky is my favorite!
Kisses and hugs

Mangos picture is awesome! I hate when my family has errand stuff to do and I get left home. If they bring me cheese and snacks, I am likely to forgive them.

licks and sniffs, Sasha
