Lady's Defence: Why the Pups Didn't Join Me at PetExpo

Here is why I was the worst Lady ever and didn't take my dogs with me to PetExpo.

1) I did it as part of a day of fun with my sister. We went for lunch and did some other errands after. If the pups were with me, I wouldn't be able to have that fun.

2) It was a long drive away. It was in the South end of the city about an hour and a bit from our place. Most of you know that the car is very stressful for Phod and we do limited his rides (he needs very expensive meds that aren't that great for him to go in the car).

3) I wanted to enjoy the actual expo. While I believe Phod would have been well behaved, I can't say the same for Hailey. She does much better off leash in large groups like this. I tried to picture me with the two of them, I wouldn't have gotten to pick up one sample as I was dragged through the event. Perhaps if the Man wanted to come he could control Hailey better (I am not at all bitter that I do the bulk of the work with Hailey and she is better behaved for him, no not one bit). I don't think it would be as enjoyable with them.

That is my defence!

The terrible Lady who does nothing good with her pups!

Here are the faces of the hard done by:


  1. Pawsome hard done by faces there dudes. Now show Lady the cold pay as well we say. Have a fabulous Friday.
    Best wishes Molly

  2. I don't blame you for leaving them at home (guess I'm the bad guy now) because when you take dogs with you on a trip like that you have to make sure they are taken care of and don't get into any trouble.

  3. I'm with Lee and Phod, but my mom said it was the right decision. It isn't the same when you spend a day with family or friends when you have to watch the dogs the whole time. Great that you had such a wonderful day :o)

  4. We can TELL by the HARD DONE BY Faces that you two are NOT buying those excuses..
    "THEY" were obviously having Fun... WRONG.

    Butt in all honesty... our mom says SHE totally UNDERSTANDS... Not that HER opinion matters to anybuddy... IMPAWTANT. hehehehhehe

  5. They are always filled with excuses. This one always tells us fibs too
    Lily & Edward

  6. hey - you can be forgiven if you bought treats homes

  7. Mom told me one time that sometimes parents have to make decisions that is not fun for us but the best so we long as we get treats....treats are a must.

    ........ well... okay..... as long as there are a few extra hugs given out this very instant!!! (Phod, you are just too gorgeous!) Hugs and wagas, YAM-aunty xxx

  10. Excuses...excuses....excuses....

    We love those faces of indignation!

  11. I don't blame you one bit for leaving them home! I took mine and it was so overwhelming!!

  12. Mom says she totally understands!
    Mr Bailey & Hazel

  13. BOLOLOL!!!! Those faces!
    ღ husky hugz ღ frum our pack at Love is being owned by a husky!

  14. We hope she brought you back some treats!

  15. Well they are sure express their unhappiness about staying home!

    The Mad Scots

  16. For those reasons.....understandable!!!

  17. If you go to a Pet Expo without the doggies, it means you can concentrate on shopping for them and bringing home more treats.

  18. I bet they laid on the guilt when you got home!
