My Petco Adventure

Finally I get to tell you about my trip to Petco

We normally get our food from
When our latest bag arrived it had a hole in it.
Chewy said they would send a new bag but
we were almost out of food before it arrived.

So Mom and I got in the car, 
she hooked my harness up to the seat belt thingy 
and we made a trip to Petco 
to buy a small bag of food

Hurry Mom! I don't want to starve!

It took us 87 10 minutes to drive there

 they must have known I was coming 
when I walked up the doors opened like magic

OMD! Where do we go first!

A whole display of Star Wars Toys!

Mom! Mom! loook at all these toys !!!!

 We found a small bag of our food
 but Mom looked at the "sell by" date 
and it was expired by one week
there was only one more bag
 but it was also expired
Mom asked the sales peep
 if they had anymore of my kind of food

Nope they did not 

He then told Mom 
that they could not sell us the bags cause 
of the expired date 


he could give both bags to us FOR FREE!!!

I was so excited to get free food that I totally forgot
about asking for a toy and we left

Thanks Petco!
I am so glad that Me and Hazel & Bailey
did not have to starve.

We are The PugRanch Kids
Bailey, Hazel & Greta

Wow that was nice! Much better than every toy! Free food is great! Food is anyway great! And now you have a reason to eat more, because of the expiration date, hehe. sorry I'm obsessed of food, because I'm on a diet. Have a super free-food-monday, YAY for Petco!

WE Love the Magic Doors that were EXPECTING YOU. THAT is super. WE are actually very much PROUD of Petco fur NOT selling the older stuffs to you... AND we are proud of fur sending you a New bag since yours was accidently opened.
We wonder what Petco would have done if you had NOT noticed the date?? Do you suppose they might have found it and given the food to a shelter... ??? THAT would have been good fur them to do.
WE are THRILLED that you got the FREE FOODS. Butt sorry you gotted so excited that you FURGOT to get a new toy.

The hubs fave thing in the world is free food! He'll be jealous! So smart to always look at the expiration date! I learned that trick a while back - used to find expired food on the shelves a lot of the time!

Free food. Sweet deal! I've never looked at the best before date of my dogs' food. Maybe I should start!

Greta, you sure do look happy about that free food! Glad you had such a fun and successful trip.

Coccolino B said...

You're so lucky you get to go food shopping for yourself! I wonder what they would say if I tiptapped in to a Petco? :-)

Patrice Pugh said...

Not only did the door open fur you...but you got free food?!?!?!?! You are a lucky dog!!!!

~Higgins said...

Greta that's an awesome story! Since you got TWO bags of food for free does that mean you get to eat TWICE as much? I sure think so!
