“Gramma, how much is that doggy in the window?”

A few months ago we babysat our grandson and wanted to do something special … you know, a bit out of the ordinary … but what? He came over in his camo pants and shirt, went to the hat box, picked out this safari hat, and never took it off. With that, what seemed more appropriate than a “Safari Adventure” to The Pet Store?  It was perfect in every way. If you would like to see his whole adventure, please check it out at “How to Entertain a 17 Month Old.”  It’s one of my favorite posts to date and I guarantee some big smiles. 🙂

Love it! This reminds me of when all of mine were that age. The pet store was one of our favorite places to spend hours of our day (in winter). I just wish someone would’ve cautioned me against actually bringing the pets home as the kids got older and more convincing in their requests! I would’ve saved myself from turtles, hamsters, frogs, geko, bunnies, fish….I haven’t crossed the bird or snake line and Do Not plan to!!

I guess the truth is that I am an animal lover at heart and did not require much convincing!

You were obviously a very good mom … we had our limits but did have the hermit crabs, hamsters, and fish. I was big into turtles as a kid and killed one in my pocket when I took it to the grocery store against my mom’s orders. I got to wrestling in the back seat of the car with one of my sisters and oops, forgot about it. So sad. Lesson learned.

What is funny to me is that the window etching seems to indicate the pup’s expletive at this tiny tot with a funny hat pointing at him!

This is such a sweet photo. The expression on that dog’s face is so great! I would have never made it home without the dog. 🙂

They look like a match made in heaven. I can’t go near pet stores, the dogs just tug at my heart. Great shot1
