PetsMart really needs to educate thier sales people on quality of dog food. I went in today to hopefully find D some canned food (he won't eat his dry) that is better for him than the Pedigree that we've been feeding him because I can't find anything he'll eat
(he's gettin' pretty picky in his old age). Anyway- I was walking around checking out the large breed food when a sales person walks up to me. He asks me if he can help me with anything, I tell him my problem. He points me towards Nutro. Now, I know that this is a perfectly acceptable food, but this guy was actually claiming that is BETTER than Chicken Soup (which is what D was on before he stopped eating). I just could not believe my ears. Who teaches these people this crap? Ugh! I was polite though..held my tongue (as I so often have to) and told him I'd think about it. I didn't buy the Nutro. Not only was it entirely too expensive for one small can...I don't like it compared to my Chicken Soup.
As I was searching for treats he might enjoy an older lady walked up to me followed by a sales person. She said that she had to chi's at home (Ricky and Lucy lol). She wanted to know what I fed mine (apparently the sales guy told her Eukanuba was the best for chi's
) and I told her Chicken Soup and I told her where to find it. She was going to pick some up (yes! another cross over!
). She then went on to tell me that her female was 5 months old and weighs only 1lb (a little more than a pound actually). She said that her vet told her she would be about 2lbs full grown (somehow I doubt that). She then asked me if mine were spayed and neutered...I said Lina is but Boss isn't..he will be next month though. Then she said that she hadn't gotten her 2 fixed because she wants puppies from her girl (she's blue by the way)
. I stood right up and told her that I wouldn't advise that. She asked why and I gave her the usual reasons (her female is MUCH too small and her male should NEVER be larger than the female when breeding the 2). Get this you guys...she looks at me and says, "That's what other breeders have told me but my vet says she'll be OK so I'll go with what the vet says." I almost smacked her. Who would do that?? UGH!!
Then another lady came over and wanted to talk to them (my pups lol) and she has a chi too lol. Hers was getting groomed and was colored alot like Jess's Ginger. She was precious. She was in there buying her a stoller
So..today PetsMart was just crawling with Chihuahua owners.
After PetsMart we stopped off at Emo's...a little outdoor ice cream shack. The pups enjoyed it. They got thier first taste of ice cream. Normally I would NOT have done that, but I figured a little bit isn't horrible. It's not like I gave them thier own cones or anything. And it's the first time for both dogs. But anyway...I had to get them a cup of water and they drank the WHOLE thing. I just couldn't believe how much water the consumed! Lina got most of it...she doesn't know how to share at all
. I had to pull the cup away from her to let Boss have some too.
Then we went home. Where they played with my brother and Gaige for a while, before being taken back home because they ran off and REFUSED to come to me when called. I hate that!!
Overall it was a good "mommy & puppy" day. I took some pictures.
What are you doing mom?
That's enough, no more pictures please.
I'm such a cutie!
Give me that duck Dustin!!
Here mommy, keep it away from Dustin, he doesn't know how to share any better than I do!
Nevermind...I'll just kill it.
These I found at Wal-Mart today also lol. They are designer puppy pads for the spoiled pup!
