The new woman in my life...

Now, I hope Rosie and Mommy won't take offense, but there is a new woman in my life and frankly, I'm madly in love with her. In fact, I can't stop thinking about her and want to be with her 24 hours a day.

She's the loveliest lady at the Cafe Cluny ice cream stand. And I think she has a bit of a crush on me as well...

You see, she says that I'm her most favorite customer. I'm certainly the most vocal - I let out a howl of delight if we're even within half a block of her ice cream cart.

And she has the most delectable, non-chocolate (and thus not quite as bad for doggies) flavors. Imagine Coconut ice cream...or Banana Wafer....or even....PEANUT BUTTER!!!!

I used to just get a taste on a little sampling spoon, but now she gives me a sample on a GIANT spoon...

Can you see how over-the-moon happy this makes me??? My tail nearly wagged right off.

AROOOOO! What!? A bit more for the cameras? (Note to Mommy: bring the camera with us on EVERY walk from now on.)

She even holds the spoon patiently so I can get every last molecule of deliciousness off the spoon.
I can't even begin to describe how perfect this ice cream is -- it's handmade daily and absolutely scrumptious. Mommy even buys a cup now and then to share with me. (Although I have to wait until she's done with her portion - she won't share a spoon with me, spoilsport.)

Just look what a good job I did - you could put that spoon back on the shelf!

Thank you so much, sweet and lovely Cafe Cluny Ice Cream lady! You are my favorite 2-legged (although don't share that with those nice fellows at Focaccia Restaurant who hand-feed me fresh focaccia when we go by...). Better amend that - you're my favorite 2-legged of the female variety!!!

Now - file this next photo under "Exactly how stupid are humans?" This sign was recently posted at the playground nearby. Can you smell a lawsuit? Gee - things get hot in the sun, who knew?

Even an ice-cream obsessed Cairn terrier knows that!


Dexter said...

You are a wiley dude. I bet she doesn't give big spoonfulls of ice cream like that to any people!

That sign! Ugh! Makes momma yearn for the days when she was a kid and they had cement under the jungle gym.


Gus said...

OOOOHHHH...Banana wafer? nummy. And we are sure Rosie won't be too jealous, after all, she is your true love, and you connect on levels other than ice cream. Right?

You know, Petey, you are giving our Girl more and more reasons for wanting to come to NY for her big celebration next spring. And you are giving us more and more reasons to defend why we should come along. Peanut butter ice cream? Nyummmmm!
