We had a special stroll yesterday. Mama wanted to take me and Gunnie to the Pet Paw-See adoptathon at Petco. Gunnie and I were both adopted through the Pet Paw-See, and mama wanted everybody to see how gorgeous Gunnie and I are. Gunnie is sleek and tigery with copper eyes; I am the Peekaboo Princess with my gorgeous green eyes, the softest fur, and a huge silver and black fox tail. Mama and daddy packed me and Gunnie into the car, put the stroller in the trunk, and away we went to Petco. We weren't thrilled with strolling in Petco. It was crowded and noisy, and some silly old lady kept scaring me. She insisted on putting her face right down to the stroller and saying silly things. I finally got so tired of it, I tried to go under our cushion. The good part is mama and daddy let us watch the birdies and some things called ferrets. The ferrets were very strange. One had cooties because he kept scratching and scratching himself. We were glad he was behind glass!
My foster mama, Debbie, from the Pet Paw-See was happy to see what a beautiful girl I am, and she gave me and Gunnie each a gift bag. The bags had crinkly foil toys, a little can of Fancy Feast, and some treats. Daddy wanted to look at the stuff Michaels had out on the sidewalk, so we got to go shopstering! Gunnie doesn't love shopstering as much as I do, I guess. He looked bored.
After the adoptathon and outdoor shopstering, mama and daddy took us to Gibson Park. It is a very beautiful park, the best one in Great Falls. There is a huge duck pond with fountains in it and a beautiful flower garden. Mama wanted us to see the ducks. Then she started thinking about the geese and goose poop (diary robot, are you listening? I said POOP!) Mama decided we should not go anywhere near the pond with our stroller. We headed toward the flower garden, and there was a bride and groom and all their attendants taking pictures in the garden, so we could not stroll there. Instead we went somewhere Gunnie loved; the skate park. It is a really good skate park, and there are always boys and girls there with scooters and skateboards doing tricks. Mama and daddy sat down to watch, and Gunnie was pretty interested in it too. Peekaboo princesses are not really interested in stinky boys doing tricks on their skateboards. Finally it was time to head back to the car. Mama had to pollergize to daddy for running our stroller tire through...you guessed it; goose POOP! Daddy found a stick to get most of the poop off. Then back at the car mama used a napkin to scrub the tire. Then when we got back home Gunnie and I took a nap while daddy started dinner, and mama got to give the stroller tire a bath with soap and water and then straight bleach. Goose poop is BAD!
P.S. We had some Fancy Feast and some treats. Mama gave us the crinkle toys, but she had to throw them in the garbage because my brother, Gunnarr T. Goofy, insisted on trying to eat his! Brothers can be such a trial.
What an exciting day you had ~ sounds like fun! If you are a DDP tomorrow, I am gonna laff and laff! You did mention the word "poop" quite a bit so your chances are good!
Oh, how terbl is this? My brother, Gunnarr T, is a daily diary pick today. I don't think he mentioned poop a single time! BOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I love your diaries, Peekie. You are so cute and funny! It sounds like you and Gunnie had a really nice day except for the dopey old lady. I wish Mommy would get a stroller. I don't know if I would be brave enough but some of the others would.
You were robbed, Peekie! I think you deserve an award, you wrote about poop ~ it's not fair!
