What a weekend!!

We have had the most amazing weekend!! That Joe Stains is quite the host. He let us, Wally, Ozzie & Rocky sleep off our jet lag in his pawrents bed!



The next day, Lola went to the spa with her BFF Tadpole and the WFT crew





And then the Girls spent last night dancing with their favorite fellows...Awwww, they're so cute, I could almost throw up my chicken backs.





Speaking of which...my job on this trip was to bring some good Pittsburgh food (and some chicken backs) to AZ. Joe Stains' Mom is from da 'burgh & I knew she'd appreciate a little taste of home.

Potato & cheese Pierogies...a staple in every 'burgh household.



Iron City Beer...the one & only



A big fat Primanti Bros. sandwich...heaven on earth



Kielbasa...the turkey variety for those of us who have to watch our waistline, and the regular piggie version for everypup else. Good thing the Turkey Kielbasa tastes BETTER than the pork kind. Makes it fun to be on a diet!


We can NOT have a Super Bowl Pawty without wings.


And the feast I've saved for Wally and, of course, my gal Dot Spot...CHICKEN BACKS!!!!


We got a new shipment in right before I left..I made sure to give the batch a big ole taste test before bringing them to AZ. Yep, they're pretty darn delicious!


Lola agrees...



And even picky Princess Penny says "Yep, pretty darn tasty!"


Here's the thing. Our team isn't playing in the Super Bowl so we have no team to root for. Sure we could root AGAINST a certain team, but that's kinda mean. So we decided that we should just represent anyway & PRETEND our Super Steelers were in the game. Winning, of course.


So we're watching the game in our gear.


And I've arranged for a special someone to stop by the house of Stains and say hello to everyone's favorite "Mean" little Boston.

Mean Joe Stains...

get ready to meet Mean Joe Greene...he should be at Casa Stains by halftime!!

In the meantime...Lola has gone off & become a cheerleader. Go figure. She has not loyalty.

Hi Mates
Firstly thank you very much for barkday wishes for me and Beau. I did not know about Joe's pawty coz of mine and Gaucho's surprise pawty until I was in the air on Sunday. It was good to catch up with you, even tho it was a quick visit coz I was running late for Spain.
Hope you all have a happy week.
Love from Hammer

What great pics to see Sherman. Thanks for putting them up. It wasn't very nice of Penny to call you a pig though.

ALl that food looks great! I believe we have some pierogies in our freezer but those are for our Pop. And he said that he always stops by Primanti Bros. when we comes back to visit.

What a game, huh?! That was paw-some!! I guess Lola's cheerleading helped the "cause".

Great looking food, guys...and we just love your Steelers outfits. Our dad is a HUGE Steelers fan, so he has been in mourning for a while, now.

Mmmm... those Pierogies look like heaven on a plate! So does the kielbasa! Our dad's people came here from Ukraine, so we know LOTS of those treats! Mmmm!

Dory and Liza said...

We're not from Pittsburgh, but the food sounds pretty tasty to us!!

We laughed when we saw your comment on Wally's blog - did Tom REALLY bring a hairstylist? Maybe it was just my human stalking him?

Thanks for making us hungry - maybe Mean Joe left some Coca Cola somewhere?

Katherine and Pippa, said...

What is Pierogi? We want it now. Get your mum to put up the recipe on her blog. It looked much better than mistress's soggy pizza the other night. Oh and we will have a beer with it two (but we have our own in the fridge, well one).

Looks like you had super fun for the Super Bowl even without the Super Steelers. How do you get those chicken backs? Mom won't make them for us! Lola, Journey's the court jester over here. But, I love to squeak all the toys too!

Lola, Journey, Rosemary, Heidi and Witty

Willie & Waylon said...

Yes, Joe Stains throws quite the party - we went to the Grand Canyon and did some sightseeing... and ate a TON of hot dogs.
Our team wasn't playing either, so we just ate instead.

Many Sniffs,
Waylon & Willie

Sparky said...

Oh, all that food! You'd better stop posting these pictures, because Lizzy's gonna be mad when she finds the keyboard covered in drool.

I had a ball! My Jeannie is so so so jealous that I have been to America before her.

Well she said to me when I arrived home, "could I BE anymore jealous Marvin?"

And your photo proved how good a time we all had.
