My Field Trip to Oxford (Miz'sippi

Today we finally went to Oxford Miz'sippi like muzzer has been talking about.
Remember, we postponed the trip on Thursday because it was a bit damp out? Well, today didn't look any better! Teka wanted to stay home and hug the heater vent in the kitchen. Muzzer said - "Get ready, we are going NOW!"
So, off we went.
In the gussiemobile, me and Teka both rode on muzzer's lap.
Teka was "cold" and she borrowed muzzer's scarf. Whew. Hope that one dry cleans well.

We knew Oxford was an OK place when the very first thing we saw on the square was this sign!
Me and Teka exited the Gussiemobile and were ready for our adventures.

Turned out to be an OK kind of place. Fresh water for dogs at this bank place.
But Teka thought it kinda looked like Lacie's bidet, so she wasn't having any!

And just in case you ran out of ahem "necessary" bags, the town fathers have thoughtfully provided extras! Nice ones, too!

Muzzer and Dad had lunch, and me and Teka had a snack from home. We went to this place called Rowan Oaks, where some dead white man lived. Me and Teka enjoyed the comfort of the grounds and made full use of the facilities. Good thing we had those extra bags, huh? We didn't get to go inside, but we took turns waiting with Mom and Dad while they took turns going inside.
That's it. A dog's eye view of Oxford, Miz'sippi.
I'm tired

Hi, Gussie...

Looks like Miz'sippi is a fun place...

My Mom's bank doesn't have a water bidet...She's gonna have to talk to them about that...

I think they are very "dog friendly"...

I hope Teka has warmed up...

We have an Oxford in England but I haven't been there myself. My town has poopy bags on the common though, just in case you forget your own...
A trip in the gussie mobile is always fun eh? Did you drink from the bidet??

Koobuss said...

Hey guys,

Oxford, Mississippi, looks like a real cool place, especially that ice cream parlor. (hehe). What dog would not have fun there? And they are so considerate, providing water and comfort stations especially for us. Hope you get to go there again.

Love and Koobuss Kisses,

Joe Stains said...

wow, that town looks so totally cool and dog friendly! So funny seeing Teka in her scarf when it was 90 here yesterady!!

Moco said...

How can you not visit a place that gives you poo bags? Did you get to walk on the old dead white guy?

Scruffy, Lacie and Stanley's Place said...

Good heavens Teka...what was my bidet doin' in Mississippi?????? Though you should have tasted the sparkin' water...it's the best ever!

Um...do you always wear a "wrap" in the car? Mumsie's grandma always did too...though she was born in 1890 and was always sorta cold. Frankly, I think it was a good look for ya Girl...maybe I'll start doin' that.

Oopsie...Scruffy's at the door...got run and let him in.....

Tell Gussie his large and handsome self is waaaaaay too HOT!

Love and kisses...Laciegirlie

Petey said...

What a nice dog-friendly town! I was hoping you'd find a sign at the ice cream store that said "Free Ice Cream Scoop when you scoop the poop!"

I like your comment about some little doggie finding the lucky ball!

Your pal,


Maggie and Mitch said...

It looks like you guys had one fun day!

Love ya lots
Maggie and Mitch
