Where Has Stubby Been?

I'm sure you guys must be wondering what happened to me this week. It's called neglect. Yep. I have been neglected all week because Mom has been busy working and Dad has been busy traveling.

Dad was in Miami at the beginning of the week and he didn't even have time to visit Coco. Sheeesh. I hope Coco understands that Dad was in Miami on a business trip and that he forgives me. Yesterday, Dad was in Minneapolis and he didn't have time to visit Walter. Dad was in and out of Minneapolis so fast yesterday that he didn't even have time to eat. What? No time to eat? That would never have happened if I had been with him but I can't fly so I stayed home - all by myself.

To make up for the neglect I've experienced all week, Mom and Dad decided to give me a special treat this morning - whipped cream. My new friend Penny is obsessed with whipped cream and I told Mom and Dad that I would like to try some since Penny claims it is the best thing in the world. Since I was looking particularly sad and depressed this morning, in addition to mumbling something about running away, they decided to let me try some whipped cream. Mom didn't think I would like it but she was so wrong.

I didn't know what to expect when Dad put the whipped cream up to my face. He was holding Mom's phone while she was holding me and screaming about not being in the picture. We had just woken up and Mom was looking pretty scary. Mom thinks I look like an alien in this picture. I'm not sure if that's a compliment but I don't have words to describe what Mom looked like.

I hesitated at first because, well, it's a texture thing. And because I thought Dad was trying to trick me - you know, give me a pill or something. He gets pretty creative when he wants me to take medicine and I told him that I wasn't going to fall for his tricks this morning. After he assured me that there was nothing in the whipped cream, I dove in.

Mmmmm. Penny was so right - this stuff is delicious! I'm not sure how I got some on my nose but of course Dad had to take a picture of it.

Nom, nom, nom - very creamy, sweet, and oh so good! The pictures are a little blurry because I was squirming a lot and because Mom's camera phone is not that great.

Did I mention that this stuff is a little messy? Maybe it's just me. Whatever the case, I didn't care if I made a mess because I was loving this stuff. Thanks Penny for opening my eyes to my new favorite treat. Now I wonder if I can get Mom to take me to Starbucks to get the real stuff.

Hi Deborah! Your guys will love it. Next time I'm hoping Dad just squirts it in my mouth but that will probably make an even bigger mess!

Hmmm.....that looks GOOD, buddy! I've never had whipped cream but I'll hafta give it a whirl!

PS When my ears are layin' back (like yers are in these pitchers)mom call's me "bowlin' ball head". Can you believe that??

Heather and Walter said...

wow, we are going to try whipped cream as a treat right away! you look like the cutest dessert ever!

Stubby said...

Hi Tweedles! You have to try this stuff. It is so good and it's a perfect treat.

The whipped cream did make up for the neglect, but I'd rather have Mom and Dad home with me than have whipped cream.

Stubby said...

Hi Sequoia& Tuni! How sweet that you guys missed me last week. I missed you guys too and I'm glad that Mom is done neglecting me for the moment. I've been glued to her all weekend and I'm not letting her out of my sight.

Stubby said...

Hi dw! This stuff is so yummy. How have I lived this long without trying it? I can't believe Mom has kept this from me for over 12 years. What else have I been missing?

Stubby said...

Hi Lilo! Mom and Dad don't go to Starbucks because they don't drink coffee. Do you think they could take me there and I could get a pup cup even if they don't get anything? Maybe I can just take Mom's car and drive myself through the drive-thru: 1 pup (or pug) cup please!

Stubby said...

Hi Hank! I'm glad to hear that I'm not the last person on Earth to try whipped cream. People must think we have been living under a rock.

I can't believe your mom calls you bowlin bowl head. I know that not a compliment!

Stubby said...

Hi Heather & Walter! Walter is going to love his whipped cream treat. I think Penny is starting a revolution with this stuff. All us pugs are going to start demanding it.

Dana Orsborn said...

Careful, that whipped cream
will start an addiction.
Just ask Penny :)

Stubby said...

Hi Dana & Penny! I'm already addicted - thanks Penny! This stuff is so good that I'm requesting a weekly taste. I have to watch my weight, so I can't have it every day like someone I know.

Yummmmmm whipped cream, we don't think we've ever really got to try it like that we are going to have to have a talk with our mom asap!

Lots of licks--

Stubby said...

Hi Oakley & Swisher! You have to try the whipped cream because it is the best. I think it would be a nice treat and I hoped none of us get addicted to it like Penny.

Hi Melissa & Emmitt! That whipped cream is going to taste delicious on your turkey tomorrow. I think I might put some on my dinner tonight and I'm saving some for my meatloaf too.

Have a great Thanksgiving!

Heather and Walter said...

Oh no! We missed you here in Minneapolis! We would have come to the airport to say hello! How will I explain this to walter so he forgives me? (by me, I mean you.) xoxoxo next time!!!

Stubby said...

Hi Heather & Walter! Dad was only in Minneapolis from 10:00 am until 4:00 pm and was in meetings the entire time. We will definitely stop by when we are in town for more than a few hours.

Stubby xoxo
