Let's Go Shopping!

Ha roo, pups and cool cats!  It's me - Zim!  At first I thought it was rather odd that Mom invited me to go shopping with her yesterday, but Mom was looking for a place way out in the boonies that we'd never been to -- obviously I was along to navigate.  (As some of you may remember, my mom could get lost inside a lunch-sized paper bag, so one of my duties is Navigation!)  We found the place without too much trouble and got out to look around.

Mom was all kinds of excited and said she'd found exactly the place she and Dad were looking for. I was a little concerned about her, since all I saw was a bunch of rocks.

I mean ... rocks. And ...

"Most peculiar!"

... I'm not sure. But it was a GREAT place to explore!

We went into a little office and met a very nice lady named Tara who showed us around.

Did I mention she gives really nice ear scratchies? I sure liked her! She said she could help Mom find just what she was after - and had a special surprise for me, too. Really?!?! For me?

We walked around some more ...

Tara said it would be OK if I went in there.  Ha roo roo roo!

She showed Mom a billion different rocks of all shapes and sizes and kinds and then ... THEN ...

"Ha roo!"

She was the "surprise" my new friend Tara mentioned.  I can't remember her name, but WOWZERS, was she sweet!!!  We play bowed and stuff and then she showed me all over the place!

"Oh, come smell this, Zim!"

It was the BEST shopping trip I've EVER been on; we had a blast exploring everything together!  Too soon, it was time to head home, so my new Golden friend and I said our good-byes.

Oh, I know what you're thinking. It looks like she's giving me a kiss, doesn't it?  Well, I'm NOT going to tell!  That's between us!

Mom and Dad will be going back to buy some rocks very soon.  I sure hope I get to go with them!!!

Play bows,


  1. Well that's darn sweet! Didn't know there'd be some nice gal dogs at a store - I'll have to go on the Foraging Trips too!


  2. Shopping and match making! Productive day! :)

  3. You were between a rock and a sweet place ;-)

  4. What a fun trip for you and what a pretty girl, Zim! We sure hope you get to go back!

    Love ya lots
    Maggie and Mitch

  5. You know what Zim? When we had our back patio done, some guy named Mason took momma to a store just like that and she was totally overwhelmed by all the different rocks. I don't think there were any hot golden gals there, though. Ha roo, indeed.


  6. Wow that looks like an awesome shopping trip - we go to a place like that but there is a kitteh and no doggies that stay there :(

  7. That looks like it was a fun shopping trip Zim! At first it looked like a rock-y start but at least you got ear scritches and then met a pretty girl! We didn't know there were mountain goats in Kansas though.

  8. That is something new, rock shopping. Have not heard of that before. I hope they have some heavy machines because those things are heavy! Your new friend is cute.


  10. Wow, when you said your day rocked, you meant it. But, Zim Dawg, we thought you were more into rap than rock(s).

  11. If I knew there were nice friends like that at the shops, I might be inclined to go along!


  12. We'd love to visit a shop like that, especially if it is run by a Golden!

    ...any chance those signs were for sale? We'd love to put the fishy sign on our desert landscaping! LOL!
