Dewi and Tiffany Go Together Like Hooterville and Manhattan

But make no mistake - they DO go together!

Anyone remember the old TV comedy Green Acres?
(It's from the mid-60s, but still popular in reruns.)

Click arrow for 16 seconds of theme song.

Well, it was the first thing I thought of when I envisioned Dewi's debut at Tiffany & Co. (In case you're new to this blog, I took Jon Farleigh into the Tiffany at our local dog-friendly mall and promised that on my return trip to pick up some cleaned jewelry, I'd take Dewi along.) Naturally, as I cast the characters of the future blog post in my head, Dewi (my goofy, herding inferno) had to be Eddie Albert's character, Oliver (who longed for the land and fresh air of Hooterville), and Tiffany was going to be his high-maintenance, Manhattan shop-a-holic wife, Lisa, played by Eva Gabor.

It was going to be the perfect post! Dewi and Tiffany going at it to the lyrics from the Green Acres song. Move over "Biscuits at Tiffany's"!

But then, last Sunday afternoon, I took Dewi to Tiffany. And just as I was certain he'd plow through the counters (and human legs) like a bull in a china shop, the unimaginable happened.

Oooh, shiny things.

Look, mama! Pretty shiny things!

And, before I could say "in your dreams," Dewi had an entourage of adoring sales associates bearing biscuits. He was in doggie heaven, complete with a Tiffany-blue box and red satin ribbon.

I was too stunned to take a picture, but the whole scene went down just off camera, here.

Then, still on his cookie high, Dewi imagined himself in a diamond-studded leather collar...

Diamonds are a dog's best friend???
(Okay, so I made that last line up, but he WAS checking himself out in the mirror!)

Poor Jon Farleigh had to wait outside.

What am I, chopped liver?

Until he got to go in...

Who's chopped  liver now?

Good thing I can't afford to go back in; I think the free biscuits and lavished attention are going to their Corgi heads. So much for Green Acres. :)


Here are a few more photos of the mall - just for fun!

Checking out the HUGE tree

I told you it was huge.

Dewi would rather drink straight from the spigot.

This little guy's doting person told us he's a Corgi x Pit Bull mix. Such a cutie!

I just noticed that dog in the background. Looks like he'd spotted us. ;)

And as we were leaving, we observed this meeting...

Pit Bull meets baby yellow Lab

Couldn't you just die?! :)

Have gobs of fun this weekend!


  1. That last picture is awe...

    Of course there was attention and cookies lavished on the Dewi and JF. :)

    PS I remember Green

  2. a lot of fun kids at the mall. Cute
    Benny & Lily

  3. BOL My mom sings that Green Acres themesong everytime she visits her sister-in-laws little farm..lots of animals hanging out in the yard...pigs, chickens, burro, horses, dogs....

    I am glad you didn't have to sing it! Cookies are magical!

  4. Ohhhhh... ahhhh... that last photo. Sigh. So lovely!

    I am so jealous of your dog friendly shopping mall (well, Tiffany's, too) This is definitely going into the + column on my "move back to VA" list!

  5. I remember Green Acres! Sigh. I'm old.

    That tree!!! Is a bit big.

  6. What a great place! What a great blog! Good way to start the day!

  7. So much cuteness!! And a nice tree too :)

  8. You mean you didn't get each one of them a diamond-studded collar for their Christmas stockings?! I may have to report you to the ASPCA!

  9. That second picture of Dewey smiling at you next to the jewelry counter is a riot! The caption is absolutely perfect!

    I'm quite jealous of your pet-friendly mall. Of course, I don't know what good it would do me to have a pet-friendly mall since a) Bella just wouldn't be a good candidate for a visit to Tiffany's and b) I can't remember the last time I was in a mall. hahaha ;)

    BTW - love that little Lab puppy kissing the Pibble at the end. So sweet. :swoon:

  10. Wow! New to the blog. A dog-friendly mall is like a dream come true! How lucky! And super cute pups btw.

  11. Now I'm going to be singing the Green Acres theme all evening... :)
