We Should Be There!

Mama is usually right on top of things, but podunk and social media failed her this time, and frankly… we’re pouting about it.

She gets this big, glossy magazine Virginia Living, and they email her a lot too.  Yesterday, she learned about FETCH a Cure in Richmond.  Hrmph.  We’ll leave her to tell you all about it on her blog, but here’s what we would have worn if we got to go to the Pets on Parade benefit. 

February 2011 005Of course, Sissy would wear her favorite crown.  PLEASE keep soliciting Mama for a proper tiara for the Queen, will you?  I mean… I’m – Gretchen – the first to admit Sis is full of herself, but she is the reigning DIVA and Best in Show winner from Mango Minster after all.  And as Dadaw would say, she only has one eye.  While Mama worries about the remaining eye a lot, she doesn’t seem to be as vulnerable to pity plays as Dadaw is.

Of course, she’d also need to wear her purple tutu too. 

Me, well…  I’d want a new frock… maybe something like this?  But if Mama shocked us by offering to change her plans tomorrow night and take us to the parade – it’s for a good cause you know – I’d make do with my existing PANK polka dot dress.  Luckily, one of our fairy dogmothers – gMarie – snagged it for me last summer.

So, Happy Dogs on Thursday to you.  You’d take your doggies to such a charitable event if it was only a little over an hour away from your house, right?

    Zeus said he would escort you ladies to the parade if his Mama offered to fly him down in time….

    […] Dogs on Thursday, little friday and Thankful Thursday.  Gretchen introduced FETCH a Cure on their blog already, so I’ll just share the items that caught my attention in the email that alerted us to […]

    LOL…you’re kidding, right? YOU hate to ride in the car, GG, and an hour each way….sheesh….what are you thinking?! And no, our momma wouldn’t likely take us to be in a parade, even for charity. She thinks we’re safer keeping close to home.
    Woofs…Sasha and Misty

    I would say you and Sissy are fetchin’ enough as it is…might as well give the other poor saps a chance to win something.

    Wookie thinks you ladies look lovely!

  7. Louise Says:

    I can just imagine you two at a charitable ball. Nudge mom a bit about starting your very own pet charity. She’s almost there!

  8. Jed & Abby in MerryLand USA Says:

    Scrabblequeen has a valid point, Gretchen. Perhaps you can just make a donation to the good cause? It sounds pretty stressful both for you and your mom to make a drive like that. And mom: get Sissy a proper tiara!

  9. Mango Says:

    How is it possible that Miss Sissy does not have a tiara? This is terrible to hear.


  10. The Road Dogs Says:

    Did you get to go? We think you would have had a wonderful time showing off your adorable dress. And we think Sissy really does need a proper tiara 🙂 Loved reading about your peeps – we’re still getting around to peep posts (*sigh*).

    Thanks so much for your sweet comments about our Gracie Girl.
