Ice Cream!

Last night while we were out and about for out walkie, Mom and Dad stopped off at Margie's Candies and Ice Cream, a Chicago summertime favorite! Mom went in and ordered some frozen treats for her and Dad and one scoop of vanilla in a cup for me. Well you can understand Mom's shock when they handed her HUGE waffle cone with multiple scoops of vanilla in it. Mom explained that she needed a cup of ice cream, so they emptied the cone contents into a cup. Oh dog, I got lots and lots of ice cream let me tell you!

Mom and Dad made me wait for a minute before they would hand me the cup of ice cream. Apparently I was getting a bit over excited. He he! I was licking my chops in anticipation of the cool yummyness that was awaiting me.

Finally, they put the cup of ice cream down! Ahhhh, so cold, so yummy, this is what heaven is like, right? Mmmmmmmmmmm...

More mmmmmmmmmm, Mom get that camera away from me, I'm trying to eat here!
Is that it? Is it all gone? Dad, you look like you have some in your cone still? Care to share some of that shake Mom?
All in all, what a delicious treat. Mom wanted to point out the telltale signs of a well enjoyed treat. Notice the ice cream left in the beard. That's for a late night snack. And of course there is the ice cream remnants on the nose. Eventually my tongue made its way up there and all bits of ice cream disappeared!
I sure hope you all get some ice cream this weekend. It really does make a hot summer day so much better.

'Till next time,

Yeah, Kirby! I love ice cream too! My girl only lets me have it maybe once a month and she never lets me have the whole scoop either. I don't understand why she's so restrictive on the ice cream. I dunno, she's just weird I guess.
You know, we have got to meet in the fur one of these days! My girl and my grandma are totally smitten with you. You do look awfully cute with that ice cream in your beard.
