I Scream, You Scream, We All Scream for Ice Cream-The Canis Minor Ice Cream Social

Its Summer and we all know what that means:  Ice Cream!

So why should humans have all the fun, not fair!  Today Norbert got to attend the 6th annual Canis Minor Ice Cream Social in Pavonia Newport.   Since Canis Minor is one of our favorite stores (it carries lots of yummy high quality food, treats, and chews as well as toys and it even has a grooming salon) we go to the social every year.  The hounds dad and I were a little worried about it being a bit hot for Bob and the pugs, and Dr. Zira is a little shy for such a big social event, so we decided Norbert deserved a solo outing.  He certainly had a blast.   There was doggie ice cream as well as food for people and gift bags containing Merrick dog food, Innova Wet Food, and a 25% of grooming coupon that we are cashing in tomorrow, bath time for Norbert!   Best of all there were tons of adorable urban hounds and Norbert made plenty of new friends.  The local Jersey City animal shelter, Liberty Humane Society, was also there with some wonderful adoptable dogs.

Norbert tried Peanut Butter Ice Cream and deemed it very tasty, and he is a picky dog!

Lick, lick

This little guy tried to horn in on Norbert's ice cream, which he wasn't too crazy about, but then they had nice time playing together.

These min-pins belong to one of the workers at the store and they are always dressed to the  nines.

Norbert made friends with them--he loves tiny dogs-just like his mom and dad.

Here the min pins are with their mom-getting some more ice cream.

All the dogs where having a great time-and there were a lot of different breeds. 

This Boston was particularly cute, even if he was an ice cream thief, but he was having so much fun he didn't stand still enough to take a good picture!

Since Norbert got his ice cream treat we had to be fair to the other hounds at home  and go by the store to get some treats. While we were there we saw this lovely cat, Athena, who is up for adoption

We hope she finds a wonderful home.
