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|
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!
