Petco trip

I could spend so much money at this place. So today, I let my five year old come in with me. It’s the first time he’s been in a store in months. I carefully masked him up, lathered his hands in sanitizer, and braved the place with Oliver (who also needs to see more people). He insisted on pushing the cart, and meanwhile I’m keeping Oliver in line (constantly stopping to smell the treats, plus I have this fear he’ll mark in there if I let him get too close to the shelves. As we walk, my son is saying “OH THIS IS SO FUN, SHOPPING!” And he’s tossing EVERYTHING in the cart. “OLIVER WANTS A FRISBEE, MOMMY...”

Well, even after I amended the stuff he’d put in the cart, we spent a hundred bucks on dog toys, treats, and pellets for her tray. We planned to get just the pellets. Anyway that’s my COVID story for the day LOL

My golden retriever used to shoplift at Petco so I had to stop taking her. She would pickup toys when I wasnít looking and try to sneak them out in her mouth! Since she slobbered on them in process I had to buy what she had grabbed. A new version of if you break it, you buy it.

Havenít had that kind of issue with Cassie, fortunately..everything too high to reach.

Honestly, I should have made the child ride in the cart! He was dangerous, pushing that thing around.

I am a big fan of PETCO since they offered free small breed puppy playtime when Shama was little. We attended almost every week for the longest time. The trainer there gave me such good advice and is still one of my go-to friends when I need dog training advice. Her sister ended up being Shama's "dog walker" who visited Shama at noon for an entire school year. And she went canoeing with Shama and me when I was testing the activity in anticipation of a trip to the BWCAW. Here is the thread about the prep and the trip. Jackie will like the first photos as Shama is a mess!

Love Shama’s messy look from her canoe trip. My husband and I kayak frequently and we are looking forward to taking Desi with us. He is too small for a life jacket at this point.

She's still beautiful even when she is all disheveled!

I took mine a lot when he was little, especially when we were working on socialization because itís puppy friendly. Eventually I rarely needed to go, between food deliveries and a gifted Barkbox subscription. Now when I do itís kind of stressful because heís SO excited. There also isnít grass at the one nearest to my house, the parking lot has the medians with ground-cover rocks and plants instead of grass. It used to be hard to get him to pee on rocks, so I had to find someplace nearby with grass to take him potty right before. But everyone always stops and says how cute he is and asks what breed he is and my kids love it. They always want to go and when we do itís like a fun family event!

My kids are really close in age, but my oldest has always had a hard time with errands and shopping, so I avoided them a lot. I remember when he went into kindergarten, I started taking advantage of that time and go to the store with only my 4 year old while he was in school. She was the opposite, she loved it, and it was so much fun. She was always very engaged in the shopping, like your son, with lots of ďideasĒ about what to get. She was always good about ďnoĒ and putting things back, but that almost makes it harder for me to say no, haha. She was pretty spoiled by things from the dollar sections of Target and the craft store for a while.

What a fun memory to have. Itís been such a crazy year. I imagine your son will remember the special outing with his mom and the puppy when he looks back on ďThe Covid Era.Ē
