negotiation 101

 Hee hee hee.   Okay, in my defense, I have not purchased a pair of shoes in quite a while.  Years, I think.  Which is how I found myself in desperate need of a new pair of respectable summer walkies shoes. And I suppose how the online bargain shopping floodgate recently opened, because, well, I had a need to feed and I really don't want to be shopping for shoes like, all the time. Cuz u know, I got a blog to write and goodies to make and a tiny and big boyfriend to play with.

Tiny chumley of course, was rather disappointed as we made our way through the stack of packages that were on our doorstep yesterday.  Sniffing first with great anticipation that his dieting days might be over,  til realization set in that these were goods not meant to be either played with or eaten.

sigh... mom, really, nothing for me?? i am sorry to tell u but my tummy says these are hard times and  if u want to take a picture of me with your new shoes,  it will cost u five pieces of kibble or a strawberry.   but both if u want me to sit and perk my ears.  do we have a deal?? :)

What a lovely selection!

which ones worked for you? I got the brown suedey like ones that Victoria shared but they aren't here yet of course. Hope the size works....

Very pretty choices, take them all! We love Zappos and order many things from them pretty regularly, even shoes for my husband!
Oskar greets the UPS guy and sniffs the boxes and that is about it for his contribution to the process.

Baxter, I hope you got both kibble and a strawberry! I am sorry you were diappointed that you didn't have a package but I like your mom's new shoes, especially the ones on the left.
Happy Sunday!

Shoes Baxter?? Really.... How could you let your Mom shop on line and NOT buy anything for you and duk duk? I surely would have asked for more than 5 pieces of kibble and 1 strawberry!

Love the shoes, but love you more!

Hugs,
