Le Marcel Specialty Bakery for Dogs

Today mommy was walking home from an appointment on Union Street and discovered a very special place: Le Marcel Specialty Bakery for Dogs.   

She can't walk past any store that has anything to do with pups.  She had to stop and go inside. She was hopeful that she might find a new place to buy us a treat.     

She walked up the steps and found a very fancy bakery inside.  There was a lovely big counter, shiny professional ovens, a nice big ‘prep’ area and lots of extraordinary pastries, cakes and cookies of all shapes and sizes in glass cases. And more cookies on  displays on the counter in lovely wrapped packages.  It was so amazing that she needed to double-check that she was, in fact, in a "dog" bakery.  It was. And it was beautiful. 

As she gazed at all the remarkably delicious-looking goodies, she smiled because she knew she was in trouble.   

After 15 minutes in the bakery she sent daddy this picture with the text message “$20 later.”:

We were extra happen when she came home. She walked to the dining table, carefully opened the pretty green bag and gently removed the fancy wrapped goodies from inside to show daddy.

We like it when mommy takes walks.

Always remember:  Walking is great exercise! Get out and walk everyday.

Brownie Needs a Tissue

Last year, I (Brownie) developed an increasingly annoying ‘sinus congestion’ condition that resulted in me regularly ‘blow my nose’ to remove the ‘congestion’.  I won’t go into the slimy details, but being a dog, I don’t have hands to use a tissue…

Mommy was rather disgusted by this habit, but she was also concerned that something serious could be wrong.  Could I have something up in my nose that didn’t belong (like a pea in a human kid’s nose)?  She started to research my symptoms online and didn’t like what she found.    
So I went in to see Dr Rob and he suggested a specialist do a procedure to see what was happening in my nasal cavity via a tiny scope.  Mommy and daddy were very scared but agreed to the procedure.

I went in, went under, and was scoped.  And at the same time, Dr Rob did a quick cosmetic procedure to remove a little ‘beauty mark’ from my muzzle.
Mommy and daddy were relieved it wasn’t serious.  But the mystery continues. And unfortunately, so do the 'rockets'.  

The results of the scoping: Nothing.  All clear.

I say, if it works for Madison Bumgarner...

Always Remember: We all have annoying habits. Sometimes you just gotta accept them.
