Shopping for Farm Supplies
Posted by Ghenghis Khan
There’s a lull right now in my dog show schedule. My next championship will be at the 136th annual Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show held at Madison Square Garden in New York City on February 13! That’s right! I, Ghenghis Khan, have been invited to show and we’re all very excited about that. If I happen to win on the 13th, I will return on the 14th to compete in Best of Show! So, in the meantime, I’m keeping myself busy by helping with the farm chores. The other day, the Frenchies and I went with Uncle Carlos to a really neat store to pick up some farm supplies.
1 GK, do you have our shopping list? Francesca and I are ready to roll!
2 I just love going to the Tractor Supply Company. This is a one-stop shopping destination for farm pups like us!
3 We've come here to pick up some farm supplies for the chickens. The temperatures keep dropping and we need to be prepared!
4 GK, Francesca, this place has everything! Look at all of these animal books! Maybe we should get that Donkey Companion to help us understand the donks?
5 Come on, girls. We need to focus on the task at hand. Excuse me, sir? Can you point us in the right direction for chicken coop supplies? We're looking for some special lightbulbs...
6 1, 2, 3, 4....That should do it, right, girls? What are these infrared heat lamps for, anyway?
7 We put heat lamps in the chicken coops to make sure the chickens and roosters keep warm in the winter. They don't have your warm double coat, G.K.
8 We are also picking up some more heated bases for the chickens. You set the poultry waterers on top of the bases so the water won't freeze. We need to make sure our feathered friends stay well-hydrated!
9 Girls, I think we're going to need another cart!
10 You're right, GK! Sharkey and I will take this cart to the checkout line. Meet you there!
11 My, waiting in this line is making me a bit peckish. How about you, Sharkey?
12 Ask and ye shall receive, girls! This is my kind of check-out line! The kind with treats!
13 That was tasty and very nice of the clerk! Everyone here is so helpful! Say, while we are here, I saw one more thing outside I think we should pick up...
14 What do you think, GK and Francesca? Let's ask Uncle Carlos if we can all get matching go-karts! These would be so much more fun to ride on around the farm than the Kawasaki!
15 No? Well, a girl can dream, can't she?
