|Let me tell you a tale of a GOTCHA DAY|
gone wrong - but then it was RIGHT.
October 16 was my Gotcha Day. Some days before, October 14, was Molly's. Did the FAMILY celebrate these two INCREDIBLE events in our lives? No. They fell during one of those busy weeks of a crazy busy month and no one thought the dog and the PUG would notice.
Well, I DID! I huffed and snuffled about with a frown on my face all week until Mommy asked me what was wrong. She was apologetic but there was nothing she could do to make it right.
Apparently, somewhere along the way My Mommy #2 and Molly's Mommie #1 decided to celebrate by taking us to the Petsmart Pet Party early Saturday morning. Did I mention that it was EARLY? It seems the FIRST pet through the door was going to get some special toy of something. Molly, of course, wanted that because for her it is all about toys. KIDS! Me, just gimme the snacks (I assumed there would be snacks) and I will do anything you ask!
|I am wearing my flying PIG costume from 2 years ago and Molly has on a|
pumpkin tshirt and a hat my Mommy made.
So we looked up the hours of our local PetSmart and headed over there 30 minutes BEFORE that time (8am). We were sure there would be this grande line. When we got there we found out (1) the place actually opened an hour BEFORE the website time and (2) the Pet Party was not to start until 9am! We had a whole hour to kill. Oh, and there were no lines of pets in costume anywhere! ANYWHERE!!!!! So we wandered around in our costumes gathering tons of ooohs and aaahs from the employees because they were about the only ones in the store at that hour!
Clearly, we were the first ones in costume so we earned the special toy. It is a Brett Michaels Love-a-Pet that PetSmart is selling AND part of the proceeds go to PetSmart Charities® to help save homeless pets.
Is that cool or what????? We also got GOODIE BAGS with eatables and another toy. Finally, we were able to take a picture at the special PetSmart photo backdrop. We had to settle for an iPhone photo though because neither Mommy nor Molly's Mommie remembered a camera. They assumed PetSmart would be taking the photos as they had in years past.
|Yeah, I was sliding and Molly was being a DOOFUS!|
It was still fun even though there were only 3 other dogs in costume AND there was no party other than a photo op. Lame, yes.
On the way home we decided we really didn't need 2 of those awesome big toys. So in honor of our Gotcha Days AND Halloween, we are having a drawing to win one. Just leave a comment below and let me know you want to be entered in the contest. We will pick a winner over the weekend and post the name on Monday.
All entries must be in by MIDNIGHT FRIDAY - OCTOBER 25, 2013!
