Shio in Target

Last month, Shio made another shopping cart appearance at my favorite store in the world: Target. I wasn't sure if I could bring him into Target but I sure as hell was not leaving him in the car during 90 degree weather on Long Island. I took the chance and had him sit in the shopping cart while I pushed him around to finish some errands shopping. Luckily, Shio remembered his experience at Bed Bath and Beyond and dutifully sat in the shopping cart without trying to jump out at all!

Unfortunately, as cute as he was in the cart, we got kicked out of Target in less than 15 minutes. Dogs are not allowed in Target. :(


P.S. Do you see the look on his face? He was NOT enjoying the sunny weather at all!

Shio in Bed Bath and Beyond

Yesterday, I went to Bed Bath and Beyond to pick up a gift for a friend's housewarming party. I dragged Shio along with me to run errands on 5th and 6th avenue since he would have otherwise been bored at home. When I walked through the BB&B doors, the security guard said that in order for Shio to be in the store with me he needed to ride in the shopping cart. So.... into the cart Shio went.

Each time we walked down an aisle, there would be someone who wouldn't be able to resist a doggy sitting in a cart. Shio was very well behaved in the cart but he did try to jump out a couple of times (which was scary for me).

In the end, we were able to find the gift and run out of there in 25 min. It took 10 minutes to find and pay for the gift and 15 minutes of stopping time for people who wanted to say "Hi" to Shio.

Mission accomplished!
