There's a house on one of our favorite walking routes that leaves out a bowl of water and a container of cookies for the pups. We usually stop with Rita to enjoy a cookie on our way home.
|"This is my favorite walk route, Momma!"|
Rita, being no dummy, obviously LOVES when we walk past this house. I recognize the cookies as being from Trader Joe's - they smell so good and molasses-y that I practically want to take a bite myself! (If our beagle was still with us, I'm sure she would drag us on this route every time we went out. There would be no walks without visiting this
Unfortunately, when we walked by the other day, the container was gone and only the water bowl was out. Rita was... dismayed to say the least!
Maybe they were playing a little Monday Mischief on us... (I wonder if any dogs went to the door demanding cookies??) Rita just hopes the cookies will be back next time! (I've never seen the people who live here outside to thank them. One of these days we have to remember to bring them a little thank you card from Rita...)
Need a Puppy Fix?
|"They're usually right here, Momma!"|
For those of you going through a little puppy withdrawal after Monday's puppy-fest,
here are a coupla Reggie pics to ease you down from the high of Monday...
|Those feet! Way bigger than Rita's!|
|Those ears! Don't know how his skinny neck supports them!|
Rita's going for a sleepover at Reggie's house on Saturday. It should be interesting...
Happy (almost) Wordless Wednesday!
Rita's having a sleepover - how fun. Not to be negative nellie, but I was just reading about the poisonous meatballs being left around in SF for dogs to eat...so be careful!ReplyDelete
I always have to consider the worst possible outcome, no matter wht the situation, so I did consider that. But how dumb would they be to put poisoned cookies in front of their own house? and I also considered that maybe someone could toss some poison in there, but then the cookies would not be nice and crisp like they were. Pretty sure these are okay to eat. :)Delete
What nice nieghbors!! So jealous :)ReplyDelete
What a wonderful idea! Living out here in the sticks, I'm kinda jealous. I'd like to be the dog lady who leaves out the water and the treats :-)ReplyDelete
How kind are those peeps? Have a wonderful Wednesday.ReplyDelete
Best wishes Molly
Nice neighbors to leave cookies out!ReplyDelete
Wow, you have nice neighbors!ReplyDelete
How nice of that sweet person to leave cookies and water. Never seen that before. There are kind people out there. Love reggie's ears!ReplyDelete
Wow, wish my neighbours were like that!ReplyDelete
Oh a sleep over what fun....i never have had one of those things...i am going to ask mom if we can have one soon, when it cools down.....what a wonderful person to leave water and TREATS...you must leave her a special note!ReplyDelete
I love it when really nice people leave a little treat out for us dogs. When I lived in New York, some of the shops would leave little treats out in front of their store and some stores had them near the counter. And thus being a beagle, this was my favorite walk!ReplyDelete
There's also a pet store we walk by on another of our routes, and they sometimes leave a big basket of treats out front - at doggy level, so the pups can reach in and get them themselves!Delete
SlimDoggy has a point. The home owner may have put the cookies away BECAUSE of the poisonous meatballs. Might be a good time to introduce yourself and bring some real cookies. :)ReplyDelete
Reggie will grow into those ears a little bit....he's at that gangly stage right now ;-)ReplyDelete
It's the burning question when we are out on walks -- when will he grow into those ears?? Of course, most people have never seen a Cardigan Corgi before. They come up with the most interesting mixes and tell us confidently that that is what he is. We, of course, know that one of the breed's distinguishing characteristics is those big ol' ears we love so much.Delete
This would not be a good thing with Delilah. She would eat all the treats and then break the door down for more. :-)ReplyDelete
Maybe someone complained that the treats were attracting other animals besides dogs? You know, it's always one person who ruins it for everyone.
You can't tell from the photo, but the treats are in a closed container with a lid that snaps shut, so I wouldn't think they'd be attracting other animals. We'll see. Maybe they were just out. Will report if they return!Delete
No cookies? Where did they go??? I hope the squirrels didn't steal them! I bet Rita is going to have some fun tiring Reggie out on Saturday. BOLReplyDelete
I bet a BIG dog ate it all and drank all the water. Reggie is a cutie. Happy WW. Lots of Golden Woofs, SugarReplyDelete
Yep, it will be interesting. Big ears is so excited and counting the hours until Rita comes over for Saturday night fun.ReplyDelete
I live in the most popular Halloween neighborhood in the area and know how expensive it is. Maybe contributing a little box of treats to share with Rita's thank you note would be a neighborly gesture.ReplyDelete
And if any of our neighbors did the same, Honey would never let me take another route. Glad Rita likes variety.
That shot of those ears is the absolute best! Bummer with the cookies! We love Trader Joe's cookies too! We argue over who gets the squirrel since it is so huge!ReplyDelete
I vote for cookie break!ReplyDelete
What a sweet idea! :)ReplyDelete
Aw, whoever lives in that house sounds like a very nice person. I'd totally do that too, but there have been too many stories of dogs getting poisoned in our area. I don't want to be a suspect in the dog poisonings, which are so unfortunate. A thank you card would be very nice!ReplyDelete
And those ears are to die for! How adorable!
I hope those cookies are out for your next walk!ReplyDelete
Have a great time at the sleepover.
That is so cool of those people! It's like trick-or-treating on Halloween everyday of the year... for dogs!ReplyDelete
Oh no! No cookies?! What a shame. :(ReplyDelete
That is so very sweet of them to leave refreshments out for the pooches! I've never seen anything like that before. So sweet.
Marquie, Lassie & Petal
How sweet! Hopefully they get to Trader Joe's again soon for some more treats!ReplyDelete
Hope you have fun on your sleepover, Rita!
That is so nice! What thoughtful people. You live in such a great place. Oh yes, my beagles would be beside themselves if we could walk there!ReplyDelete
Poor Rita, hope you'll get your cookie next timeReplyDelete
What? No cookies?! That's outrageous! I'm surprised there's not a line of doggies there refusing to walk another step until the cookies are re-instated!! :)ReplyDelete
Your pal Snoopy :)
How great that you live in such a dog-friendly neighborhood. We hope for Rita's sake that the cookies will be back next time. :-)ReplyDelete
