Ice cream - finally!

Mom & Dad 2b felt so guilty about not bringing back Ben & Jerry's ice cream from Vermont last weekend that they decided to take us to our other favorite ice cream place - Emack & Bolios!  Yippee!  I was so excited!  I try to tell my parents that Emack & Bolios is so close that we could walk there everyday...but, for some unknown reason, we sadly do not.

Here is a picture of all the cool flavors that you can get.  My mom's favorite flavor is "grasshopper pie" which is like chocolate mint ice cream with OREO COOKIE pieces in it.  My mom also likes their version of "Cake Batter" ice cream which has yellow cake batter with chocolate cake batter/icing swirls and the occasional piece of cake! We have a pint of this in the fridge. Yummy!  Dad 2b usually gets something like "Raspberry Truffle" or "Deep Purple Cow," however today he got something with Coconut in it (Coconut Crunch I think).  
I usually get vanilla flavored frozen yogurt ice cream - I am closely watching my figure so that I fit into my dress (for the wedding) properly.  The Emack & Bolios where we used to live used to put a milkbone in the doggy sundaes; this store was not as progressive.  Boo.
Above is a picture of Riley and I eating our ice cream in tandem - what a team!

Here's Riley - chowing down:


Here I am eating my ice cream ever so daintily:


Oops! I knocked it off of the bench and on the ground!  Waste not want not!
I finished my ice cream in no time!  I LOVE ICE CREAM!!!  After I finished my treat I had to wait for my slow poke parents.  I got a little bored so I thought that I would start digging a hole to practice for the hopes of doing Junior Earthdog.  I kind of got in trouble for this and then we had to leave - I guess gardens are not for digging?  Who knew?  This makes absolutely no sense to me - besides how am I going to train for Earthdog; I mean, I am not even allowed off lead in the alley anymore!

Here is a picture of a cutie pie we saw on the walk home:

Addendum: We just went over to Angel Lacy's blog...please go visit and lend your support, wisdom and love to Claudette.

A bright and vibrant flower for dear Claudette:

You are such a dainty eater Toffee. When I eat ice cream a lot of it ends up smeared on my muzzle. But it is delish and I am glad to see that you each got your own cupful.

Your friend,
Niamh
