A Visit to Zoomies

Posted by F&S

All this week, we’ve been reporting about our trip to New York City and what we did there.  We really had plenty of adventures and a really fun time.  We especially loved shopping in a very special pet supply store called Zoomies!

Look at the great variety of toys, Sharkey!  You know, toys are very important for a dog's well-being.

Right,  Franny!  Some toys even promote problem solving skills to keep doggy minds sharp, not to mention keeping dogs from getting bored!

Also, playing fetch with dogs encourages exercise, as well as  a bonding experience!

Something smells good here...oh, cat treats!  Well, I guess this store has kitty supplies, too.

Now, those jars up on the table look like homemade dog treats.  Sharkey and I  love anything healthy and natural.  Ah, these biscuits are from Bocce's Bakery!

And here's Natalia Tovar, who works at Bocce's, baking these delicious treats.  Francesca and I enjoyed the free sample!  But, do you have any more?  Please?

  • Hello Ladies,
    Looks like Zoomies is a really fun store!!! Did you every get new toys? I certainly hope so. On Mama's blog I see that the farm is getting into growing mode. I can hardly wait. I must say that these warmer days (although I am not fond of hot, hot days) have been extremely nice for walks in the yard and sunning. Cora Belle, your orders worked for a couple days keeping the critters away, but Mom about had a heart attack last night, and scooped me up in the middle of a pee to run inside. She was yelling at 5, yes, 5 racoons. Not big and little, but all big ones. They didn't come near me, they were running to a spot in the gate to get through, and she was yelling bad things at them and making lots of noise. The neighbors must think she is a goof!! She says, too bad. She was saving me. So now we need to send the muscle my way. No more being nice. Where are the owls when you need them? Oh, and one more thing...Mom told me yesterday that I am doing so great and that I am remarkable. Can you imagine, Old Basil Boy is remarkable? She made my day. I will be left alone for a few hours today when Mom and Dad have to pick up a side of beef they had processed. No pink slime in our house. Mom could be a vegetarian, but not Dad and I. Well, everyone, I must go to eat (I am eating very well these days) and get my day started. Hey Glue Squad and blogger buddies, have a great weekend.
    Love & licks,
    Basil

  • Hi Girl Friends &G.K.+Glue Squaders, What a fun pet store to see-the Zoomies! You girls sure had a great time visiting NYC and I would love to go there too! Uncle Carlos sure does fun things with you girls and how fun to see Martha and Kevin at Zoomies also! What a friendly little doggie at Zoomies who welcomed you! Did you get some new toys and doggie treats there?! Sure is fun to see more and more friends following The Daily Wag these days! Sure hope all of you Glue Squaders, new friends, and of course all of The Daily Wag have a great, safe, healthy weekend! Love Dudley Do Right XOXOXO+

  • Hi Ladies!
    What a cool store! Did you get any treat? Sure hope so.
    Poor Basil & his Mom. Just Shoo the coons away! They sure look funny when they run! They're not as ugly as a possum with their pointy noses..ewwww.
    I have the grandkids to entertain this weekend. Thank goodness Mimi is taking them to the movies this afternoon, I'll get my nap in. heh, heh
    Have a great weekend Glue Squaders (squatters? LOL)

  • Hello ladies, Kirby here.
    Basil you be careful around those raccoons. If they keep coming around some of us larger dogs will have to come and have a talk with them. One keeps coming around here and I chase him off. Guess I’m too big for him and he just makes his exit. Well the weekend is here. Almost forgot; it’s Daddy’s birthday today. I asked him how he liked sailing with Columbus, hehehehehe. He said he didn’t. I guess the trip was too long for him. Now what he really said was, “I didn’t sail with him, I’m not that old,” but I didn’t pay any attention to that. I had better be quiet now and take a nap.
    Catch you later, Kirby.

  • Hi beautiful frenchie Ladies and glue squad buddies! Zoomies looks like a great store! I am going shopping today with my mom for my birthday Sunday. I like stores that welcome me and let me run around picking out new toys and treats. Did you get new toys? Basil we are so happy you are feeling better and think you are remarkable. Raccons sound scary. I bark at skunks but have never seen a raccoon. Can't wait for our shopping trip. Hope Nicki, Kris, Kirby, Rebel and amazing Basil all enjoy the weekend. Love, Abby the soon to be ten pug frenchie

  • Jeepers, you Frenchies go shopping more then me!! :-)

    What adorable products! Did you know that in the U.S. pet industry $50.84 BILLION dollars was spent on Pets??? That’s up from $48.35 billion in 2010. Amazing!
    Kitty brought home a baby squirrel, poor thing it never got to enjoy life...I know it's nature, but really, why am I feeding that fat cat anyway? mommy delia is not a happy camper. :-(

    Everyone have great weekend!

    delia & Kitty >^0^<

  • Ooh hot diggity what a cool store "Zoomies" is!

    I really liked the octopus toy!

    Glad to see there was a wee little area for cat supplies. Have to love all of God's creatures! :)

    NH has been a blaze of Spring Fever!

    Trees are blooming..pooches are walking about. Life is good.

    Have a super weekend!

    Love you lots..

  • Thanks for the warm welcome from the Glue Squad. It's one month today that I arrived at new home; and I really have enjoyed it. I'm glad Mom & Dad picked me. Mom is home from shopping and I've checked the bags, thank goodness, she got everything on her list. Maddox, NE for me is Mass, yes, it was a long flight. Zoe, I will ask Mom to send a picture, I hope she picks a cute one of me. Cora-Belle, I haven't seen too many critters yet,but when I do, I'll give them one big bark just for you. Basil, so happy you are feeling much better. Kirby, I play a little rough at times too, it must be something we do when we get excited, what do you think? I heard Dad saying that he may enlarge my outside play area; that will be nice and I can help with the landscaping; although he hasn't liked my designs so far. I'll have to work on it unless Mom catches me; then she thinks my name is "no-no-no". Off to obedience classes tomorrow, I hope I can make Mom & Dad proud :) .

    Have a great weekend everyone.

  • ..wow..what a cool store..though I would be like a bull in a china shop..this old country dog has very few social skills..Basil..have your mom bang on a pan before you walk around the yard..that will scattter the offenders..or get a whistle and blow it ..they are not as brave as they look..only if you catch one then watch out..they can do a LOT of damage to a doggie.. unless you grab them just right..really sharp claws and teeth..just make lots of noise and you will be fine my little buddy, wish I was there! Yo..Kirby, I think Lucinda and James were your dads shipmates!HEHEHEHE! Happy birthday Kirbys dad from all the cattledogs.....Kit-bang salutes Kitty for the squirrel ..bad Felines!..goodie, the sun is shining..but there was frost and it is too cold to dig in the dirt..so planting flowers and putting them on the from porch to start this afternoon..I am having some difficulty breathing today..so naturally everyone is watching my every move..back off people!..time to have a frozen pea treat and help make new curtains for the kitchen..Everybody have a great week-end..I"ll check back on all you fellow glue squaders later..over and out..Cora-belle

  • Hi, Franny, Sharkey, G.K., & Glue Squad,
    What a cool store you girls went to! We think it looks a lot like the vendors at the dog shows, but better! More toys, less junk for travel and grooming. How does it feel to be famous? Do you get more treats and toys? Maybe we should work on that, getting more famous, because we all like toys, and Fergie LOVES treats...well, okay, we all love treats, too.
    Basil, you do need to be careful of raccoons. Mom didn't like our other house, because we had too many wild critters like raccoons, possums, and sad, homeless cats who lived in the woods. We even had alligators who came up to the house from the creek behind us!!We had chickens(lots of good eggs!), but the possums and coons killed them. Mom was very sad for a long time when a raccoon killed our bird brother, Fred, the macaw. He loved to go to his outside cage when the weather was good, and talk to everybody and everthing that went by. That's where he was when a raccoon attacked him, and hurt him very badly. He had to go to the bird doctor, but she couldn't save him. We think that's when Mom decided we needed a place with not so many wild things, and moved us here, to this house. That's also why we help by keeping what critters that do get in the yard away from Mom.
    Happy Birthday to you, Abby, and to Kirby's dad! Hope you both have a wonderful day!And hope that the rest of the Glue Squad has a great weekend! Mom says we've got to do teeth and nails now, getting ready for the big trip to Fergie's dog shows in Dallas next week.

    Your pals,
    Lily, Fergie, and Zora

  • Hi girls,
    Zoomies looks like a store I could hang out at all day long.
    Maybe the Glue Squad can rent a bus and go there on a field trip
    Wouldn't that be awesome?
    Basil, my little buddy, what great news about your health, good good good
    Kerp up the good work.
    Kirby Bear, when do you go on your trip? Will we be hearing from you while you are away? Happy birthday to your dad
    So. Dudley and the rest of you DW followers, what are the plans for the weekend?
    I am thinking of going skinny dipping
    hehehehehebe
    love to all,
    Maddox

  • Hi Girls and GK,

    Boy, I wish I had a Zoomies close by. It sure looks like fun. You girls look like you had a ball there. Happy Birthday to Kirby's dad. I hope he is having a great day. Good luck Missy Chow at class. I know personally how stressful it is to make sure you do good for your mom.:) I have a count down going till April 10 for when I am off to boot camp.
    And on a lighter note.....I almost got a duck this morning out in the yard. I was soooooo close till mom sent dad out to make it fly out of the yard. She wasn't even scared of me, can you believe that???
    And I figured out how to get around the gate going upstairs. Was up there twice this morning.:) Watch out Lily the bunny :)

    Well, off to play in the water. It is so warm here today, mom keeps filling my big bucket up so I can splash around in it. I heard her mention getting me a baby pool for the summer. I can't wait. Or maybe Zoe will invite me over her hourse for a dip. She doesn't swim and neither do the labs. What a waste of a great pool. I sure would enjoy it.

    Have a great day every and a awesome weekend.

    Chloe xx

  • Had to check in and say Happy, Happy 10th Birthday to Abby. Now you are the same age as me!!! Get lots of good stuff at the store.
    Love & licks,
    BAsil

  • ...Abby have a happy birthday come Sunday..I will bark at critters and eat a treat in your honor!..Cora-belle

  • Finally checked out the "Daily Wag", mostly to wish our very special friend ABBY a wonderful Birthday Weekend! 10 years old, and to think what you went through this time last year... anyway, we are SOOOO happy you are with your Mommy now. Sending you lots of love from us and our peoples! HAPPY BIRTHDAY - hope it's a MEOWY one! Get it instead of merry or happy, meowy - where do we come up with these things?! If only everyone could be as smart as us cats! :-)

  • Happy Saturday - yes that's right Saturday. Do I even need to tell you why I missed yesterday???
    Mom + work = no computer time for Zoe. But I'm here today, what do they say a day late and a dollar short? Oh whatever the hell it is I'm here today.

    F & S Zoomies looks like lots of fun I wish we had one here. So tell me did Martha and Kevin spring for a few new toys? We have a place called Jakes Dog House which is cool. Maybe I'll see if mom will take me there I'm ready for a new toy.

    Hey Chloe keep your thoughts to yourself - no way I'm going to boot camp. Plus I don't need it I'm in control of myself, I know when I'm bad you still are young you don't know any better. Have fun I'll send you care packages :)

    So this morning I almost had me a duck. Yes there were two swimming in the pool I was so close to having Peking Duck for breakfast! It's a beautiful morning but mom said rain is on the way.

    Have a great weekend everyone!

    Zoe

  • Crazy stressful week again. I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend. Happy Birthday on Sunday hto you Abby!
