Yo Dudes, It's Frozen Custard Time Again...

...and me, Kipper, lives for this stuff Dude. It's like this. I told my Mom. So Dude, you should let me tell this story 'cause I am all about ice cream and Dog Nite and she was all like you think you can and I was like yeah Dude so she said give it a go. This is the old man who took us there and he had the money and the car so I let him come. Hey Dude! There's my man Rebel. Like *haylo* Reb old buddy. Be with ya in a mo. Come ON sheesh. Could you people be any slower!!?? But then hey. Ritter's custard cream is so worth waiting on. You see? It is like this. Ritter's has this frozen custard kinda ice cream and it is so good and the first some day or other of some month or other they have Dog Nite. They give all the dogs free cups of the vanilla custard with dog bones in it and oh dude. It is chillin'. OOhhh...frozen custard headache. What's that Mom? I got some on my chin? Let me take care of that....did I get it? Can't let the ladies see me uncool. Let me introduce you to some of my dogs...this is Zsa Zsa, Yes, really. And she is really pretty and really prissy. She even wears jewelry 'cause she knows how special Dog Nite is. One of these days I just might give her my number....if I ever figure out what that means. Seriously. What does that mean? This is one of my new dogs...this is Skye. He was cool so I let him in the crowd. This is Jack...Hi Jack. Get it? HI Jack??? Funny huh?? We love that joke. Never fails to break up the kid. He is a good guy that Jack. From Australia you know. At least, maybe. He is an Australian Shepherd. But he doesn't seem to know Russell Crowe who is also from Australia 'cause my Mom asked him. Like 54 times she asked him. Sheesh Ma. This is my girl Pepper. Cute huh? Pep always wears the cutest collars and stuff. She is a real lady. Loves that custard too. My kinda girl. Hey Bully dude! Should I like get her number for ya? Could anyone explain what that means first? I mean, do I get her licence tag number? Chill Bully. I will get it dude. Now, here is Riley. Riley is very, very laid back. He is one very cool dude. He can eat a whole cuppa custard in one bite. I swear, I have seen it. I was all like Dude! And he was like Dude! And I was like Dude! It was seriously cool. This is Cooper or The Coop as we call him 'round Ritter's. He is only 2 but he is very much a dude. Knows his custard and likes it. Very dudey. Greta my girl!!! Good looker right? She is a regular 'round Ritter's and we all love her. Greta and Stanley do the meet and greet. This is Nova and Zsa Zsa doin' a little meet and greet action. Now we got the family. This is my Auntie Abby. She is like my very bestest friend in the world next to my old man. This is some of my crew...that is Abby with her Mommy, my Grandma, and my sissy, Grace. They got some custard too but they were selfish and didn't give me and Abby none of it. They said it was 'cause it was chocolate but I know it is 'cause they was hoggin' it for themselves. Hmpf. This gorgeous red head is Sweetie. Just like her name, she is one sweet girl. Look over here and show 'em how cute you are Sweetie! Thata girl. Now go back to eatin' your cream! Ah, here we have my main bud Rebel. He is waaaaaay cool and really knows how to respect me as the leader. I like that in a guy. Aw gee Reb. Like the sign says, "Only one cup to each dog". I am sorry dude only ONE! Pull yourself together! Gee this is embarrassin'! Chauncey!!! Man, I haven't seen you dude since like last November! How you been dude? Man that Andy and Pal. They scarfed down their cream and then spent some time checkin' out the ladies. Hey Fred!!! DUDE!!!! I didn't think you were gonna make it! I was on my out! Man it is good to see you! Huh? Naw, they ran outta cream 15 minutes ago dude. Aw Fred dude. Don't cry man. Get a grip bro. Okay dude. Go talk to Rebel dude. You two gotta work on this man. If you are so gonna run with the big dogs, ya gotta act like one. Do you see me sniveling over no more cream?? *pssst* Hey Mom? You DID get that extra pint for me to take home right?? Whew. For a second there I almost cried...I mean...um... That's it for me dudes. This whole social whirl and ice cream thing wears a dude out. Till next time...be real dudes.

FHL said...

Too funny! What a great custard stand!!!

(I'm partial to the Dane. D has pledged that God willing, upon retirement when the moves have passed and we can finally have a home/home, his gift to me will be a Dane....I'll let you know in ten years *wink*)

LOL! I LOVE dogs! I would have a house full them if I could afford them! Sweetie looks like my Maxie (only Maxie looks more manly of course cause he's a boy). He'd love to have some of that custard!

Sorry I've been out of the loop abit Sue, have to go do some serious catching up with you...uh, Kipper you'll tell your Mom right? I loved looking at all your buds and want to know just where this Sugarshack might be? I mean, Mindy Lou loves her some custard too, and the doggie bones are just the ticket! Loved all your introductons of the gang, too.
hugs

Andi said...

Hey Kip, you have a way cool family to take you to such a neat place. My Dad takes me for rides in his truck but my Mom says I'm way too "hyper"...whatever that is...to ride in the car with her unless Dad's along.

That Pepper's a "looker" man. My Mom's all goofy actin over her checkered harness and matching leash. Mom's all about the accessories Dude. It's a good thing Dad puts his foot down or I'm sure I'd be sportin' more than just a red collar.

Sure wish we had a Ritter's here in Florida. You take care Dude and give Pepper a kiss for me. Heck man...give 'em all a kiss for me. I love everybody!

Love, Bully

And how it's, like, got this cool dog post if you dig way back, cuz she like goes crazy over the canines, and she was like REALLY? and I was like DUDE and she was all SWEET and I was all TOTALLY and I was like TOTALLY talkin about you. DUDE. This is so bizarre.
Glad you had a chillin night with your homeys dude.
And glad you brought camera chick and the fam along. RIGHTEOUS!

Terri said...

I wouldn't trust my dogs around all those other dogs. I don't know what Sam would do, but Alice would bark her head off "protecting me".
Sounds like you had a nice time, though!
God bless.
Terri

Those dogs are to cute!

Gretchen said...

This is so cute. I love Kip's antics. All the dogs are just darling. I know Annie and Murphy would love custard days. They just got home from prison/dog kennel, and are mighty happy to be home. I haven't heard a peep from either of them. They're exhausted. :)

P.S. What are you feeding Grace? She's grown so much! :)

Alice said...

I love Kipper's posts from Ritters. He's the most popular dude hanging out there, for sure.
