Last Minute Shopping

Well, tomorrow's Pappy's honorary birthday, so I am scrambling for last minute gift ideas. We're going to stop by the pet store on the way back from the dog park this morning to see what draws his eye.

What he would love more than anything else is an automatic ball throwing machine. The only purpose-built one I can find, the Go Dog Go fetching machine, seems to have gone out of production. There's one US site still advertising them, but they seem to be placing fake customer testimonials peppered around review sites directing people to buy from them-- slimy! Some students at the University of Victoria were building an interesting prototype a few years ago, but it was the size of a washing machine.

So, instead, I did some browsing this morning for cr*p, I mean presents:

Good stuff. For you I mean, not Pappy. He's getting some balls and Nylabones.

Hey Pappy,

Have a great BDay!! I think the Barbie Pooper Scooper is reeeeally cooools! I think YOU should get that too.

Don't get sicks on too much cake and ice cream!

Hey Pappy,

Have a wonderful barkday :-) I hope you gets lots of pressies :-)


Charlie said...

Oh, but it's not the fetching so much, you know, as the fact that you are throwing! :)

Happy Birthday, Pappy!

Freda, Opy, Charlie, Boo, Maggie, 3Dog, C-K-C, Dachsies,

Pappy thanks all of you for your birthday wishes. Though the weather isn't cooperating (snowy, sleety), he's having a grand old time chewing on a bone.

Happy Birthday to Pappy! Hope it clears up enough so that you can get out and visit a Petco or two.

We managed to get out yesterday and stock up on a Pappy treat or two. He was pretty happy with the new balls.
