I was so pleased to get the "I Love Your Blog" Award from my Field Spaniel friend, Hero.

And then I was doubly pleased to get it awarded to me again by those three wild heelers, Gus, Louie and Callie.

Thanks so much guys. I'm glad you enjoy my blog. I love reading yours too.

Phydeaux (pronounced "Fido") is a cool independent pet supply store. They only sell food, toys, treats and all sorts of good stuff for dogs and cats but never any live animals. I would not patronize them if they did! They recently moved to a big new space and I wanted to visit and check it out.

Just look at the great assortment of delicious treats.

One corner is all beds. I bet Agatha and Archie would love this place.

The Wall of Toys!

I had to inspect my favorite treat dispensing toys.

I helped Barbara check out our purchases. She paid of course, but I made sure she was charged the correct amount.

We bought some of my favorite Solid Gold kibble and a moo stick which I have already buried in the yard.

That is such a great place to go visit.. We go there sometimes but we haven't been there in quite some time. We will have to bring that us to mom..

Thank you so much for visiting me! I'm very happy to meet you! I LOVE your new dawg crate on wheels. My human sister Leah (she's in college) really likes that particular dog crate and would like to have one for herself. Your mom teaches puppy classes? I bet you are very well behaved for her! I'm 2 and pretty good. My mom recently decided to teach me some tricks. I learned how to "sit" in about 20 minutes. I won't "shake" though because I hate having my paws touched. I've never heard of a "vizla" breed dawg before. My mom is gonna do a Google search to read about them. Well, thanks again for visiting me. Come back soon and have a great weekend!

Oh my gosh! Throw in a few squirrels to chase and that would be our idea of doggy heaven. What a wonderful place. Congratulations on the awesome awards.

Many wags & wiggles,

Ooh, my lot would love that 'bed city', lazy brutes! Thanks for the comment, and the link. Going to follow your blog, not just for me.....someone at our class has Gordons and she might like to visit too. xx

That looks like such an awesome place! Since my island is like a speck of dust on the globe, we don't have any large pet stores, and none that would allow dogs inside. It would be nice if I could pick my toys and treats for myself.

Phydeaux looks like a super fun store! We glad you got treated! Congratulations on your award, Niamh!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

She is such a pest. We can't help but let her win...

Way to keep tabs on Barbara. Those humans can make some pretty serious monetary mistakes!

I hope you got lots of awesomeness and enjoyed all of it!!

Sorry I haven't been around to check on you and all, but you know...humans, blah, blah, blah...

Hi Niahh!
I love your new crate and I told my humans to get one. I like the stores where I can help myself to stuff. Nice awards. My lazy mom hasn't been helping me blog much lately so I know how you feel. She has mixed up priorities.

Your store looks like it sells a lot of the same stuff as the store that Agatha & Archie and we go to! (although your store looks a little more spacious!) Glad to read that you got some yummy stuff there!
