Three Dog Outing

We have been super busy since my last post. I have been to the Vet and Bear has been to the Vet - but before I tell you about that let me tell you about our Happy Sunday.

After a hearty breakfast we loaded up the Trailblazer with all the supplies we might need and headed off to Home Depot.

This is the first time I have ever been in a store. The Duke and Duchess thought maybe I could be a good example for Mister Higgins, so Bear and I got to go along on this outing. Doesn't the Duke look like he's having a great time with 3 dogs? Hmmm...... Not so much???

The first thing Higgins did was to poop in the main isle of the store - right there in front of EVERYONE! I was horrified, and rightly so - because it was MESSY! (oh, and it didn't smell very nice either). The Duke was also horrified and the Duchess had a hard time containing her laughter. Go figure. Fortunately the Duchess had a "mess kit" in her purse and cleaned up the entire mess and then finished it off with a Lysol sanitizing wipe. The store clerk was quite impressed. However, she requested that the Duchess please use the garbage can outside of the store to deposit her "doggie bag".
So, we continued on, and the Duke decide we really needed to get off the main isle. We headed down the isle with the shiny new toilets and Higgins took that as his cue to squat and leave a huge puddle in the middle of the floor. We all thought the Duke was going to faint! Again, the Duchess cleaned up the mess - all the while laughing uncontrollably. She had tears running down her face. (What on earth is so funny about pee, I'll never know).

The Duke needed some kind of bolt thingy for concrete, and as soon as he found them we high tailed it out of there! The lady at the check out was so nice. She gave us all treats and Mister Higgins was really pushy. What a brat!

He just would not leave. I was embarrassed to no end!

After we finally got him out of the store and into the car, we headed to Petco for another outing. My leash broke right before we left the house so I needed a new one. I was leery of Petco. There were big bright things in the air and little varmints crawling around in cages and behind glass. It was a bit spooky for me but I soon got used to it. Nothing bothers Sir Bear - he's just a big doofus. (I say that in the most loving way, you know). Mister Higgins was pretty good when he wasn't pulling pig ears off the shelf. But again, when it was time to leave and the nice girl gave us treats, he was a total hog! He wanted my treat, and Bears treat and his own treat. And then he begged for more. What a complete PUPPY this kid is. The Duchess promised me that someday he will be a wonderful and well behaved young man. (When? Please?)

After Petco we headed back home again so Mister Higgins and I could enjoy some play time. Do you see me in these pictures? NOT! He is so stingy with his ball. Beside that, I don't even like to play ball!

I am seriously doubting my Duchess when she says he will really grow up some day. . .

Send help!
In the meantime, we have other things to worry about. I went to the Vet because I have been vomiting - dry heaves. The vet made me change to a "sensitive stomach" food and Pepcid AC twice a day. If that doesn't work I will have Xrays and blood work next. My Duke and Duchess are pretty concerned for my welfare.
Bear went to the Vet because he has been drinking gallons of water and having accidents in the house - which he NEVER does. $200 later he is doing a little better but we don't know what is going on yet. The duchess has to get an early morning "sample" on Saturday to take in to the Vet for tests. I told the Duchess it's that little bratty brother that is making us all sick and she just laughed at me. Can you believe that? Humph! Anyway, I will keep you updated with any news as we get it.



  1. Our paws are crossed that your health improves very soon Emma, we are worried about you and Bear. We sure hope that pesky puppy isnt making you sick. Bonnie had dry heaves the other day, and it turned out to be a touch of doggie flu. I said it was swine flu because she is such a pig. Looks like you all had a great time and I am kinda proud of Higgens for making the required deposits at Home Depoto. You know...Home DePOO. I think that is what you should call it from now on. That is what we call it. Cuz I peed there too right after I was 'dopted - every single time we stopped walking I left my mark on lots of things. My mom was horrified too. Good show Higgens.


  2. Oh Emma Rose and Sir Bear!!! We hope you both are ok! Please keep us posted.
    Looked like quite an outing....leave it to us puppies to make all the messes and get all the treats! (deserved or stolen!!!)

    Hugs and snaggle-tooth kisses,
    Sierra Rose

  3. I hope you and bear are ok now.
    Love the story of you and the famely shopping...hihihi.
    have a great wekend,Lean.

  4. I looks like a fun outing, despite a couple of "foe-paws"/

    I hope you are ok Emma, I'm thinking about you and Lindsay sends her best to Bear and yourself.

  5. Your outing looks like fun! Of course there was the messes that Mister Higgins made but being a puppy...puppies just do things like that. I would send you help Emma Rose but I doubt that the Duchess and the Duke would let anyone interfere with Mister Higgins or you or Sir Bear!! I really hope that your tests come back okay. I know that the Duchess and the Duke are probably worried about both of you. Mister Higgins looks cute with the ball!! He'll grow up...sooner than you think and then you will say...what happened to our puppy!!!

  6. i sure hope everyone n! but we did laugh about the poop incident. gets better soo

  7. Oh Emma dry heaving..was it like a cough that choked you? I hope the new food helps. As for Sir Bear..I am worried that he might have diabetes..sounds like the symptoms for sure.
    Mister Higgens sure caused a stir in Home Depot..Chance of course is jealous..he has only been to Petco..the next time we are in Home Depot I will have to check and see if there is a no dogs allowed sign or not. It is a good thing that your Duchess is always prepared! Looks to me like Mister Higgens may be ball driven too!! That should run off some of his energy! Chance sends kisses! :)

  8. My Mama is still giggling about Hoe Depot, but we are all concerned with you and Sir Bear...We hope all is well at your castle soon!!


  9. Graet day out pictures. Hope you are all sorted out and very well again soon.

    I was sick this morning as well, but I had been down the rubbish bin ....


  10. Sounds like you've been very busy. I love going to stores. I can go to most stores - but apparently the little ones were making a mess of things at the Bed, Bath & Beyond - so now dogs are only allowed in CARTS. How silly is that. And a silly move on part of the store - We use to stop in on our way home from the Park - now we skip it - I think their revenue has dipped big time! - Abbey

  11. Emma, I must bark, you were simply a model of decorum on that outing and I hope Mr. Higgens learns his lessons soon! I saw my own mom giggling over the look of joy on the Duke's face, though. We hope that you're feeling much better soon and that you and Bear both get good news back from the vet. Being sick is no fun!


  12. We is crossin' paws fur you and your brofur to get betters. We sure hope that everything is OK. Peein' lots and drinkin' lots is not such a furry goods fing to do. Sometimes that could be diabetes...sigh.

  13. Wow, what a fun day! Mister Higgins graces Home Depot, BOL!!! I hope you are all healing up! No fun to be sick.

  14. I would be as embarrassed as you are if my dog poops in the store too. I always bring my dogs every time I get something at the grocery. But I leave them at the main door with my eldest son. I don't know what to do if they started acting up inside the store.
