It’s officially Christmas Time!

Posted November 29th, 2008 by puppypie

Mommy and Daddy had a special party to go to this afternoon, so my outing for today turned into an outing for the night!  I had never been to Fashion Island at night before, so tonight was a treat, especially with all the Christmas lights and decoration, which you’ll see some of later in this post.  :-)

I decided to go to the Apple store today.  Normally I just walk to the entrance, look around, and give a cute wink to the Apple store employees and we head down towards the other shops.  But tonight, I wanted to look at some of the electronics to see what I could buy for Daddy this Christmas.  Daddy’s a geek and likes gadgets.

As you can see, I was looking quite dapper in my Holiday Sweater, all decked out in red.  Daddy asked the friendly Fashion Island Apple store employee if I could be an honorary Apple store clerk for a few moments, and guess what?  I got to wear those cool and dandy lanyards that only Apple store clerks get to wear during the holiday season!  Too bad the clerk’s name wasn’t Oscar, but the print is so small you can hardly read it anyway.  Anyway, I want to say a big “Thank you” Sean for letting me “work” there for the night.  :-) 

One of the perks of being an Apple store clerk is that I get to hang out at the cool retail window display!  As you can see, they have quite a cute Santa setup in the window.  I had the “authorization” to hang out there, and get this cool shot, as an official Apple store clerk for the night!

After my long shift at the Apple store, I decided that I needed a bit of a break, and that it was just about time that I go tell Santa what I want for Christmas.  It’s a good thing that I had just left the Apple store, because I had remembered all the Apple Ipod Touch models fresh in my mind.

It was 5:51PM when we got to Santa’s photo boutique, and the sign said he’d be back at 6:00 PM.  So we all stood in the queue for a few minutes, waiting for Santa.


As you can see below, Mommy waited in line patiently, holding me, until it was my turn to sit on Santa’s lap.

So, as Daddy coached me, I told Santa exactly what I wanted (I mean, what Daddy wanted):

  • A Porsche Carrera 4S for Mommy.
  • An Audi S5 for Daddy.
  • For me, just a few Nylabones, and a few squeeky toys from Petsmart!

On the way out, Daddy suggested that we take another photo of me near the queue.  Daddy says ambient lighting always makes for a better photo than using a flash.  I think he’s right.  What do you think?

After we finished at Santa’s photo boutique, we walked over to the huge lighted Christmas tree in front of Bloomingdale’s.  There, I met a really cute doxie named Neesa (if I didn’t spell your name correctly, please email me so that I can bark at Mommy and Daddy to fix it!) who apparently likes to wear clothes!  This is inconceivable, because I so-really-do-not-like wearing any clothes at all! 

Mommy and Daddy call me Pouty Schnitzel after they put a sweater or jacket on me, because I get all pouty and start acting dorky.  But tonight, I was on my best behavior, cos I had to impress the ladies.  ;-)

As we did last week, we went over to my new favorite store, Muttropolis.  I thought I might be able to get away with not having to take another photo for the rest of the night, but just as we walked into the door, Dorky Daddy says, “Hey, let’s put those reindeer candy cane horns on Uber Schnitzel and take a photo!”  And so, here I am, pouting again and looking “ridickerously” cute.

After Muttropolis, Mommy and Daddy had some yogurt at Pinkberry.  Afterwards, we headed over to Russo’s Pet Experience again, then finally headed home.

I must have been pretty tired and worn out, ‘cos Mommy said I snored all the way back home in the backseat in my car-seat.

Well, that’s it for this week.  Maybe we’ll go somewhere different next week!

    Thank you for visiting my blog. :-)

    And my Mommy’s been scheming of how she might legitimately get me into her office at work, and she’s mentioned a few times about how I should learn to be a service dog!

    Can I just order that fancy yellow vest from online somewhere?? ;-)
