We are the Champions...

Wow. Mom & Vinny didn't know that when they said we were taking a baseball hiatus from blogging that it would end up being this long! I knew though, b/c if you didn't know this about me, I am rather psychic and I TOTALLY knew the Cardinals were going to win the World Series!!! GO CARDS!!!

The downside to not blogging for this long is that it's really hard to remember everything that's happened and get it all organized. So let's start with baseball. Mom took some pictures of us watching the games.

Vinny stole MY baseball Nylabone.
(Mom's note: you can see here that Vinny's eyes were swollen and had red bumps inside his eyelids, and this was many weeks post-surgery and suture removal.)

Look at him slobbering ALL OVER IT! MOM!!!

I was not happy about being stuck with the stupid plain Nylabone.

All of the games didn't go in our favor. We were down in the dumps some games.

And some games we just couldn't even bear to watch so we closed our eyes.

Last Friday - the day of the big game - Mom got us some baseball themed treats - and some real foodable treats too from a new store that opened up in our neighborhood. Vinny even got a Cardinals collar to match mine! I think that means he might be staying. :(

Vinny checking out the baseball.

Vinny didn't even know the proper way to tear this open. Don't worry, I showed him later.

Peanut butter treats!

Nom nom nom

I had to take mine in the other room to eat it so that Vinny wouldn't try to swipe my crumbs!

All gone!

We did some real celebrating that night! The Cardinals haven't won the World Series in our lifetimes so we really did it right - champagne and everything! Don't tell Mom. We did that after she went to bed.

We have a ton of stuff to catch everyone up on but we'll have to do that over the course of the week. For now I'm gonna go see if there is any of that bubbly left.

Later, friends!

Vito, I'm glad your Cardinals won, and it was nice of you to share with Vinny (yeah, even if you really didn't intend or want to) and to show him the ropes, as it were. Can't wait to hear more about what you guys have been up to (and of course see more pictures of your cute - and Vinny's too - little face!).

You pugs are so well behaved, they should include pugs in baseball stadiums. I know I'll do anything for a hotdog and peanut butter snacks! My mom also took a hiatus, glad to see you back too!

Payton said...

It pains me to say it, but I guess I'm glad that the Cards won for your sake. I'm even more happy that you guys both got some great new toys and foodables! I've missed you both, so I look forward to hearing what's been up...besides baseball!

Glad yer back!

We thought about you when we heard that the Cardinals won. Glad that you are back though!

Tweedles -- that's me said...

I missed you! Welcome back.
I do not know the baseball teams... so I will say Happy Halloween!
Too much cuteness in those photos!

I love your sweet little pug faces! Glad you're back.

Vito! I totally forgot to ask you the name of the new store that opened up! You must tell me!

Vito and Gina said...

Payton, tell your momma it is called Pawsitively Fintastic - it's at Eichelberger & January, a little bit southwest of your favorite Murdoch Perk! It is brand new so they are still getting in merchandise and their self-serve baths haven't arrived yet, so I would recommend waiting a bit to visit them! But they are really nice!


Payton said...

Hey Vito! Thanks for the info. Say, maybe we can meet-up there sometime?

Salinger The Pug said...

YAY! We were totally cheering for the Cards to win since the Rangers spanked our Tigers! :-(

Hey, are you guys BLUES fans?
