Home Depot Day! Oh Boys!!

Real Estate Agent with HomeSmart Real Estate BR030809000 AZ Broker BR030809000

Let me tell you, it's a big day when Gary decides to take the 'boys' with him to his second home, Home Depot!  When he drives in the parking lot and goes to get a cart they know what's coming and they start barking and wagging their tails.  First he arranges a little pad in the cart so it's easier for the 'boys' to hang out in. Then he takes them one by one and places them just right so Barney can see out his right eye as he's blind in the other one.  Do they stay this way?  Of course not but he tries!

 

The other day I went with all my boys on the big adventure and was glad I did! Just as we got out of the truck a family came walking by with two adorable twin boys around age 5.  I'm not sure who was more excited the twins or the 'boys'!  Would you like to pet the dogs?  They'd love that if you did, but only if Mom and Dad are ok with that.  Oh man......that was so darn cute.  All them loving on each other!  We chatted with the parents a bit and it was time to move on. 

 

Then as we entered the store there was another little boy about age 5 and he spotted the 'boys' right away.  He ran over with his Dad in tow.  And I'm sure you know it was another love fest moment!  

                                         

                                         Success!

Did the love fest end there? Of course not!!  From there we ran in to several retired folks who asked - what aisle did you find them in? I said aisle 13 and we all chuckled and they told us about their dogs.

 

As you probably figured out by now, a 10 minute trip to Home Depot is more like 30 minutes when the boys go along.  And it's worth it for all the 'boys'!

Hi Nina Hollander, Broker glad the boys made you smile!  They both have such different personalities and are so cute.  And....they'd be loving on you.  Norman although likes to lick which gets to be a bit much!!

Hi faye schubert we started taking Barney to HD when we first got him as he hadn't been socialized.  That worked for him well.  And now we've got Norman and weren't sure how he'd react.  Yup they both do well together.  Which so could go the other way like your Huckleberry!  What kind of dog is he?

Hi Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD I have seen big dogs like your boys there on leashes of course.  Holy smokes the 'boys' go nuts when they see a big dog!  Life doesn't get any better at that point!  I have had to turn around and go to another aisle to avoid the commotion!  LOL

I'm afraid Boomer is 30lbs now and he would take up the whole shopping cart. I hope you are having a great weekend 🙂

Hi Paul S. Henderson, REALTOR®, CRS you'd probably need one of the flat rolling carts along with a lease!!  How's Boomer doing?

Oh how fun! Fun for everyone involved I'm sure. I know if I saw that cart of cuteness at Home Depot I would stop and say hi too.

LOL Paul S. Henderson, REALTOR®, CRS well he doesn't buy tools when I'm there..... BUT wait until you see his new Man Cave Garage Workshop re-do.  It's looking great and more to go. Will post about it when it's complete.
