Memorial Day weekend in Vermont

Last weekend mom & dad made my brother and I go to Vermont.  I begged and pleaded to stay in the city because my friends were coming to visit...but all of my cries fell on deaf ears and we were smuggled away.  They said that our friend Gator was running a marathon and he needed our support.  At least we got to visit my friends "Ben & Jerry" (see picture above).

We tried to go on a tour but apparently dogs are not allowed.  Sheesh.  I was so upset that I had to go to the ladies room to regain my composure.

We did get to see this interesting site - the flavor graveyard.  I was a wee bit scared and wished that Eric Square was around to hold my paw.

Check out these flavors that have gone over the Rainbow sorbet bridge:

Maybe they should think about bringing economic crunch back?

Addendum:  We would also like to wish our friend Ms. Sophie Brador a very happy 10th barkday!!!

Sorry that you didn't stay in the city and you had to support gulp...Gator. Crickey wouldn't like to see him running towards me......

Now your other friends Ben and Jerry - wouldn't let you go on the tour? Wagging shame. Some friends. As for the Sorbet bridge (teehee!) yep they need to bring all them delish flavours back. I've got a new flavour for them to bring out too. Toffee Scrumptious.. but only for consumption by me..heeee!!!

Snoggies and lovies your boy Eric xxxxx
