Me: “Bentley received a special package last week and was really excited. When he opened the gift box, inside was a fabulous green and tan overnight bag. There was a card wishing him a Happy National Dog Day! It was from our friends at Personal Creations.com. It is absolutely adorable.”
|"OMD! I love monograms!" |
Bentley: “Mom, don’t call it adorable.”
Me: “It is ruggedly handsome and just precious.”
Bentley: “MOM! Let me tell everyone about my overnight bag. It is a sturdy design with pockets for treats, room for toys, my drool towels, a water bowl, my leashes, collars, and any stylish bandanas that I may need. I’m thinking about taking an exciting road trip to celebrate National Dog Day on August 26. If I leave now I can still enjoy the #DogDaysOfSummer.”
Me: “Where is your dream vacation? We might want to tag along. That is the great thing about luggage. It is filled with dreams of vacations yet to come.”
Bentley: “There is a trip that I’ve been itching to take. Now, you know that I love you, but there are some places a guy just has to experience alone. The first thing I’d do is toss some things into my new monogrammed bag. Then I’d throw the bag and my board in my shiny new sports car. I’d give a whole new meaning to the Dog Days of Summer. Woo Hoo!
|"Bring on the #DogDaysOfSummer!"|
I would hit the highway and aim my wheels toward the white sandy beaches and gnarly waves of Florida. I have seen videos of surfing so I’m pretty sure that I can hang ten.
|"There is just something about a Beach Basset."|
Of course, I might just stand by my board flexing my muscles. They don’t call these beaches dog-friendly for nothing. From what I hear some of these places are off-leash and the dogs run around wearing nothing but their collars. I’ve seen pictures of spring breaks and it looks like a giant party. The Dog Days of Summer must be even more epic!
|"I'd like a Bone Barkarita."|
After a day at the beach, I would lounge around the pool in my festive party lei. It’d give me the “Good Time Bentley” look that is so attractive to the ladies. Perhaps I’ll enjoy a drink with one of those colorful umbrellas sticking out of it. Yeah, that is exactly what I’d do on my dream vacation.”
Me: “That sounds like an awesome trip. When are you leaving?”
|"What kind of vacations will you discover in your personalized overnight bag?"|
Bentley: “Probably soon…I have my new Personal Creations Overnight Bag. That is the main thing, the rest are just details! I just so happen to see a lot of vacations in this bag!”
