All Because of an Umbrella

OMD, you will NOT believe what happened to us!  I will start at the beginning.  Last week dad won a giant umbrella from one of our TV news channels.  Not as good as the plasma TV he won last December from the OTHER news channel but as dad says "Free is free".  Anyway, we went to go pick it up this morning.  And of course me and Stanley went with our pawrents.

So we get to the building and me and Stanley wait outside with mom while dad goes into get it.  After a LONG time dad comes out with NO umbrella.  Mom asked what happened and dad said he could NOT find anyone who could help him.  You see, the security is VERY tight and you cannot even go into the station without someone letting you in through locked doors.  You have to use a phone and call and then they are supposed to come let you in but no one would even answer the phone!  The man working in the lobby was no help either.  He said, "I don't know what they do."

So all this time people are stopping to pet us and tell us how handsome we are.  Then mom decides she will go in and see if she has any luck.  So mom goes in and gets nowhere.  After about 10 minutes she comes back outside the building and it had just started raining.  She told dad, "I bet you wish you had an umbrella!"  Then she sees a guy with dad (he stopped to pet us too) and he says to follow him, he will get us the umbrella.  So mom said the lobby guy said doggies were not allowed in the building and the nice man just said if anyone said anything we will just tell them they are filming a pet segment.  Me and Stanley did High Five Paws with the nice man.

So then we went in the building and the lobby man said nothing.  The man swiped his secret badge and the doors opened.  Then he said we could have a seat and he would find the umbrellas.

This is where we were waiting for the umbrella.  As you can probably tell no one was paying attention to us we were almost discovered as movie stars!  See the camera on the other side of the glass doors?  If it turned our direction we would have been famous and on TV in seconds!  I told mom she should be taking more pictures but she said she was busy making sure we were on our best manners.
Pretty soon the nice man came out with another man and handed dad an umbrella.  While dad was signing a paper, probably an autograph for me and Stanley, the nice man was giving us pets so he would always remember the day he met me and Stanley.

Just when we thought it was going to be a regular day it turned out to be quite an adventure!

Murphy and Stanley...I, my humble Mayoral opinion....you dad won the umbrella but you two DOOOODS sealed the deal. I'm 99% sure if you had not been with your peeps it would have been harder but you two DOOOOODS are just soooo cute and such good ambassadors of smiles and good vibes. Bravo bravo for a great Tuesday

Wow, what a big adventure. Maybe they will ask you to come back for a proper interview. What does the umbrella look like? (We could have used an umbrella yesterday when it rained all day!)

Blueberry's human said...

I wonder if they will ask you back to be TV stars after all! Funny that it started raining while you were picking up an umbrella! What are the odds??

The things you go through just for an umbrella

Bouncing Bertie said...

Can't believe they didn't sign you up for your very own TV series.

Bouncing Bertie said...

PS I, Bertie, was once on the BBC TV news, protesting about Donald Trump being awarded an honorary doctorate by a local university. Sadly, I was not allowed close enough to bite his ankles...

Jeanne Pursell said...

Yeah! Next time tell your pawrents to send you guys in FIRST!!! You two are stars in our book!! What an adventure!! Maybe we should send money to your dad and ask him to buy us a lottery ticket...he wins a lot of stuff!! :)

easyweimaraner said...

you saw a real TV set? with your own eyes? wow that's great! And that you got the umbrella was great too! As you left the building was it still raining? Or not, because you were armed with an umbrella?

Molly The Wally said...

Definitely, definitely - if the camera had turned around, by now there would be a 'This evening with Murphy & Stanley' or 'Paw Tales with Murphy & Stanley' type show happening and we would all be watching - the station don't know what they are missing!!!!!

Woof

Wow, that's very exciting! Too bad they didn't realize there were two famous blog stars at their studio, or they WOULD have asked you to be on TV. Bipeds. Sometimes they really miss the obvious!

Mr. Pip said...

That's super exciting to be inside a real TV station!! Your dad sounds like he is a very lucky guy

M. K. Clinton said...

I can't believe that you weren't signed to a multi-million dollar contract on the spot! What were they thinking? Y'all would be awesome doing the weather, or sports! Their loss is our gain, because we would miss you!

sprinkles said...

I'm kinda shocked they didn't sign you up for your own reality show!
