RICE this RICE that!

Today, I ran the pre-wash cycle for our rice pot,

STINKY doesn't like rice, so it was all up to me,

Every since then, it was just RICE this RICE that!

Mum had to run some errands downtown, so she put me in the DaleMOBILE. When she looked in her rear view mirror, she called me "RICE FACE".


We walked by this Pawsh store,

And I took mum inside,

I walked around the store with mum in tow. They had some pretty neat doggie clothes, but most of them could only be used as leggings for me.

The store gurrrrl really liked me. She kept offering me TREATS!

Here I was playing dead so I could score more treats,

The store gurrrrl couldn't believe when mum said I was 10.5 years old, so she asked mum - Is RICE the secret??

Can somebuddy tell me why RIIIIIIICE?

Despite the RICE this RICE that, I continued to perform (and demand) voluntarily to the store lady until I finally emptied their treat jar. When that happened, I told mum that it wouldn't be very polite for us to leave without getting anything especially after I emptied out their treat jar.

So mum learned her manners,

I carried the load of course,

Yes, I'm gonna start BARKING MAD if you don't give it to me soon!

Beautifully dehydrated to perfection,

Yummy Ostrich Liver!!

We walked across the intersection,

To BC Place - where the opening/closing/medal ceremonies took place for the 2010 Winter Olympics.

Mum said smile RICE FACE...........

The roof at BC Place had been taken down,

A new retractable roof will be in place in 2011,

Mum realized I was very hot, so she asked me - Is RICE cooking on face??

I ignored her and found shade. 90% of the time, the things she says to me are just plain weird, so I pretend I don't hear her talking (mum: special Airedale talent!).

So can you tell me why just because I did the pre-wash cycle for our rice pot, my day became RICE this RICE that???

We can't believe that your mom made you go shopping in that Pawsh store with rice on your face, Sunshade! How embarrasing for you! At least you got many treats + some to bring home with you!

Love ya lots

You are so stylish and classic AIREDALE fashion.....But wearing the RICE shopping - even Asta would say "You gonna go the REhab - No, NO."

But what the heck you SCORED!!!

Today - maybe more RICE - hand with D-Guy and you might get even more treats....

Great job on emptying the store's treat jar, Sunshade! We can't believe Stinky doesn't like rice. We thought ALL 'dales liked rice!

Poor Sunshade... I cant believe you had to walk around the whole day with rice on your face! Maybe you were saving it for dessert!

We were starting to get worried Sunshade as you haven't posted on your blog for awhile. We missed reading about all your adventures. Glad all is well and your back as we missed you.

Hello sunshade,
I am glad to read from you. We had already worried to ourselves.
To see jocularly, how a grain of rice on your nose accompanies you on your ways

Lots of Love

After going to run errands and get all those yummy treats now you need to brush your toofies and wash your face!
Kisses and hugs

Okay, most obviously your mom can't be trusted to not lets you be embarrassed in public. So you must always ask this before you go outs, " I haves something on my face?" And then no matter what she says, ask for a mirror.

That Pawsh store looks Most Wunnerful and I"m glad your mom bought you something - to be polite and all. I haven't ever had ostrich liver. Does it taste like chicken?
