Only 8 days til the Shop Hop

Hi, I haven't had alot of time to Facebook or Blog lately. I've been helping my Mom get ready for the Twin Cities Shop Hop. The hop starts next week, May 3rd - 5th. We've been working alot at the shop and at home.

I was in the shop on Monday and Mom and I worked with Miss Heide to get some displays done. It's alot of work, I'm exhausted. This morning Mom got up early and we went out on the deck to roll some Civil War strips. I don't know what she was thinking, I got out of a warm bed to go out in 46 degree weather.... they're working me like a dog!!!!!

Here's just a quick snap shot Mom took of me helping. I did manage to get a few treats for my efforts. I've also been promised a new chew bone if I help her out again tonight at the shop. Mom says if I don't be naughty and just be quiet (that means not barking or whimpering) then we can go to Petco on the way home tonight. I noticed that Dad got the little kennel out to take to the shop, that must be for if I get tired from all the helping.

Are you doing the hop? I've never been but I heard it's alot of fun. Maybe someday if I'm not working at our shop I can go. I don't drive ya know, so I have to get a ride.

I hope you can stop in the shop and see all the new things and the displays we put up. I just know you'll love 'em.  If you are doing the hop, drive careful - be safe and don't forget to bring treats when you come.



  1. Are the working conditions good or am I going to have to call OSHA? Is he a minor to young to work? I think you should pay 3 treats. It seems to me he is under paid.

    1. Cheryl,
      I make sure he's well paid. He goes through a box of treats per week.
