Going shopping

Posted by laurie on December 10, 2010

The winner of the caption contest is Paws for Thought for: “I sure hope you kept the receipt, Dad.”

And the runner up is Jenny: for BYOBeagle

I always feel guilty at the supermarket when I see people with the reusable grocery bags stuffed into their cart, like they’re ready to save the world. So let me get this off my chest: I use both paper AND plastic (paper inside the plastic). But hey, I do this so I can use them as trash bags later on. No wastebasket or wastebasket liner necessary! Does that count as

  1. Stanley to Sherman: “Where do you think you live, on the Upper East Side?”

    Sherman my boy, it is better to walk up the stairs than to take the elevator.

    Oh, our trash can is plastic lined with a paper bag to absorb any spills too.

    I’m not good with captions, but love the picture. I love Sherman in the bag and the pose on Stanley is adorable. You get the greatest pictures! I do the same with the
    paper & plastic bags for garbage.

    Pack and carry, the new reusable carrier for the older dog or one undergoing therapy!

  5. K. Spivey said

    So Sherman, you dewclawed a ride instead of walking?

  6. Kramer and Gandolf's mom said

    Hey Sherm. That SO does not count as being a posh purse dog.

      I vote for this caption. :->

      We don’t do the paper bags, but we do get the plastic and use them in our trash cans as well (All trash cans in our house — and I mean all, not just kitchen trash — need to have lids, or be under/on top of cabinets. Jordan is a good boy, but Josie is a trash eating she-beast). We also reuse produce bags for picking up after the houndz on walks, ensuring they have no holes in them first! They’re much easier to put in your pocket than a regular sized plastic shopping bag with handles.

    Look what I found in the Pet aisle…with my double coupons, it was only $.99! What a bargin!

    Of course the next frame was Stanley running upstairs to make sure it really was Sherman in the bag and not a third beagle 🙂

    Dude! When they said you’re going to Rehab, they weren’t kidding! I’m going to hide my stash now!

    “WHOA! Dude! blue is your color. It goes well with your…coat.” Walks away snickering.

    “Yeah I read in a fashion magazine that this is what’s in this season. It seems to be a hit with the lay-dees (ladies).”…”Oh yeah? I’ll take your word.”

  12. Lynne said

    Hey Sherman where have you been?

  13. Paws for Thought said

    “I sure hope you kept the receipt, Dad.”

    Phillip purchases another snuggly fleece blanket for Laurie, when SHAAAZAAAM… Sherman has already staked his claim….

    I try to use the reusable bags… more often than not, I forget them at home! But, I too use them during walks with the poochies…

    I maintain that if you reuse anything and everything you can, THAT’S green. We use the reuseable bags, but we also bring home stuff in paper and plastic. But, we use them for a multitude of tasks or we recycle them.

    My vote is for BYObeagle, although, I can imagine Stanley saying “Hey, Sherm, you’re a bagel–get it? Bag-el?”

  16. Dave Dwyer said

    “I was in ‘re-hab’ for a pig ear dependency issue. I don’t really want to talk about it now.”

  17. Samantha said

    You got a beagle instead of bagels!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! He is cute but what will we eat for breakfast tomorrow morning?

  18. debbie brown said

    it’s all in the bag…

  19. Susan in DE said

    I like BYOBeagle. But I was thinking Laurie labeled yesterday’s photo with the two boys on the new fleece throw as “Impulse purchase”, that might be a good caption for this photo as well. :->

  20. Carol said

    Cool, we’re going shopping! Let me go upstairs and get MY bag!

  21. Luana, Cody, and Henry said

    “Daddy ‘n me goin’ shoppin’ — wanna come along?”

    I am another one who uses the plastic bags from Wal-Mart, Piggly-Wiggly, etc. for wastebasket liners and pickup bags during beagle walks.

    By the way, to weigh in a little late on the reusable bags issue, I used to use plastic bags so I could use them as trash bags. But then our city started a 5 cent bag tax! So now I use reusable grocery bags and purchase my trash bags. I don’t know if it’s more or less expensive but I have principles, man.
