A Puppy Outing Day In Ocean Grove

Okay here are me, Ma, and Pa in Ocean Grove, for our first family outing! Ma and Pa wanted to buy a home there but couldn't find the right one...maybe one day, but until then, it's only a hop, skip and a jump from where we live( and I did a lot of that when we were there!!!)
We had lunch at the Raspberry Cafe......
Ma and Pa have been going there 4-ever!
The lady there said that I was adorable and gave me a cookie, while ma had some weird Gorgonzola cheese and pear sandwich..........YUK!Pa had a burger and gave me a little though....too cool!

Ma had to take me EVERYWHERE. Every store, where they had what Ma said were "collectibles"
Humph! Look at that....Scottie Dogs don't DUMP! We eliminate in the proper environment!
Time for another food break....here we are at the Barbaric Bean.......how cool can one trip be?
I even got to try out a new way to travel in style....look...I got me some wheels!
Hey wait a minute...slow this thing down a bit!

MMMMMMM......I think I smell another eatery...yup...the Ocean Grove Bake Shoppe.....and look how they cater to canines!
Ma had to hold me back or I would have eaten my way through that place!

Hey look at that animal...man it can't be a dog....look at that face!

He's sticking his tongue out at me! How RUDE can one critter be?
Well same to you buddy!
Yikez! I think it saw me...better lay low for a bit!
Hey look over there....PINK TENTS!!! I never thought that there would be this much pink!

They open them up for the Summer every year and people come from all over for what Ma & Pa said was a retreat.

Maybe I had better check it out....I mean if they are giving ANY kind of "treats"..re-treats gotta be just like dog treats!
Ma was talkin' about something called a concert all day....Ma said it was the first one of the season at the Great Auditorium and we had to go to it....I dunno about all that jazz....

Ma wanted to go inside but me and Pa wanted to just relax on the bench and snooze...

ZZZZZZZZZ.....come on Pa, tell Ma we wanna go home. This was a long day for a little puppy like me...even if everyone DID say I was adorable.
Well that was my first trip to Ocean Grove and my first outing with my new parents. Hope you had fun joining me.....catcha soon!

  3. Oh, Becky
    It looked like so much fun. Getting all that attention was fun too huh?? Thats the thing about being a scottie, people think we are adorable!! bol


  4. So much fun - we are so glad you made so many pictures so we feel like we were there. We miss you and are so happy every time we see you new adventures.

  5. What a nice place to spend the day! I have never been and it sure looks lovely from here.

    Be careful about who you stick your tongue out at! ;)

  6. Where's the G-Man? Did you take some nummy treaties home for him too? I'm thinking I need to go see those pink tents. Especially since there is a bakery near by...num num. Here's a tip, when sitting at the table, put yer head down on the table and look up at the person across the way. It helps to flutter yer eyelashes and move yer brows around. If you can do the one eyebrow up at a time, trick, you'll get more nummies for sure. It works for me everytime.

    sniffies to you both,

  7. Oh Becky,
    What a lovely day out you had with your new Ma and Pa!!! That place looks so cool. We would have loved to go with you on that outing!!!

  12. Wow, first off I just read your profile today. It's such a gift that you are able to take care of your mother. Second, not to pry but where do you live, this is heaven. We travel for a living. There is a town in Illinois that Pippi gets to go everywhere and her Nana loves to be the one holding the leash when we shop.
