First trip to Petsmart

Hey everyone, Kim here. Wes, Mel and Ian are in The Keys on vacation so I am on dog duty!

Today was Skells first time to Petsmart. He was wayyyyy excited. He pulled me a lot and was sliding all over the slick floor. After he realized that there were other dogs around every corner he got verbal. <----UNDERSTATEMENT

Skelly has the most high pitched, LOUD bark EVER! I totally forgot about his bark because the only time he really ever barks is when we go to the vet. Note to self: he also barks when we go to Petsmart. And let me tell you, that store echoes! Everyone knew who he was by the end of our visit.

We wanted to love on any one that would give him love, which a few people were more than happy to oblige. Other people were scared... of what? I have no idea.

I got him some food, a new Wubba and a huge bone. I also got what they call "Busy Bones" - I guess they are supposed to keep the dog busy for a long time. HA!! Yea, it is keeping Sophie plenty busy.. Skells? he was done with it in 2 minutes *slaps forehead*

I didn't get any pictures because my camera phone isn't so great indoors. Other than the Petsmart trip, we have just been hanging out on the couch (shhh!!) and I am pretty sure I do not have ANY FLEAS! Skells made sure of it. He is constantly nibbling at me.

We may go out to the beach tomorrow since I am off of work and it is supposed to be a beautiful day!

OH MY GOSH YOU GUYS!! I ALMOST FORGOT!! Skelly learned how to shake!!! I will definitely get you some footage of that ASAP :-)


  1. Shake?! I told you he was smart! I hope Sophie gets some couch (shhh!) time, too! ;-)

  2. ooo, i looove the petsmart!! glad you got to go, skelly!!

  3. Awwwww can't wait to see Skelly shake paws!

    And glad you and Skelly had fun at Petsmart and got lots of treats!

    Take care

  4. We love trips to Petsmart! We're so happy Skelly is getting to enjoy all the wonders of a happy home.

  5. We want to go to Petsmart! Meowm always comes back from there with interesting smells on her!

    Good job on making your presence known and gretting people Skells!

  6. I wish I lived closer to a Petsmart, I'd probably be in there all the time with my pups. It's a 45 minute trip each way though so they've never been.

    I love that Skelly had such a wonderful time at the store! And I have to laugh that he barked so loudly. He just wanted to say 'hi' to everyone! LOL I wouldn't have been scared of him. He seems like a total sweetheart!

    I'm glad Skells is getting some couch time. Hope Sophie is too!

  7. Oh that had to be a hilarious trip to PetSmart! I can just picture how excited he had to be! I am glad he is doing so well and it sounds like you two are having fun together! And it is very good to know you don't have fleas :)

  8. Wooooohhhhh - cool! I guess your Petsmart is like our Petbarn - whole house full of treats, toys and always some cuddles from staff and other 2leggers?! :) I loooooove it too.
    Slobbers Teal'c

  9. LOL, Kim! Love it! Does Skelly have any Kongs? Stuff 'em with a bit of peanut butter and they've kept the pups I've "sat" for occupied for hours and hours!
