Meet Me in St Louis- The Pip and Puddles World Bucket Tour 2013

You read the headlines correctly- today is the day!  Pip and Puddles will be in St Louis to the joyous acclaim of their fans the world over!  The hotels have been filling up- Goose and Bert have been busy handling the overflow crowds downtown by the Arch!  The local veterinarians are on 24/7 alert as are the Missouri National and Air Guards (they heard the news that Puddles is "licensed" to fly Sopwith Camels).  The popo are on vacay, as BLogville's very own Sarge is on duty- and he brought along EXTRA ticket books!  18 wheelers have been pulling in on an hourly basis full of cheetohs and beer- the barges on the Missouri and Mississippi Rivers have been hauling in loads of treats for our Blogville bash!

 First off we have that daring duo- Shiloh and Shasta, flying their Sopwith Camels camouflaged in Cheetohs paint jobs, under the great Gateway ARch on the Mississippi- No way the Missouri Air Guard will ever figure that out!

 Next we have the commemorative brochure that we are selling so that we all have something with which to remember this bucket tour- filled to the brim with all of the photos and blog entries from each stop- (ok, so we really are trying to raise Puddles' bail money!)
 Anheuser Busch, the company responsible for the beverage sought after by discriminating Yorkies and  Dachshunds everywhere, created this commemorative Bud Light fountain for Puddles to take everywhere she goes!  They also honored Pip and Puddles with Keys to their factories- so much better than a key to a city- these keys open up breweries the world over (so we no longer have to bail out Puddles)


 The city of St Louis changed the street lights throughout the city and at the Gateway Arch, just for this occasion!  The new lights are being called Puddle Lights!
 Here is a picture of our super heroine, Blogville's own Beer Wench!
The Gateway Arch, built in 1964, right on the Mississippi River itself!  And yes, Puddles and Pip did hang from it- so did everyone else at the pawty! St Louis put out the red carpet for Puddles and Pip! WE barbequed our hearts out- the White Dog Army had the tiki lights going and the conga lines went all day and night! 

 Oscar Mayer had their fleet of Weinermobiles on hand for the entourage- Bert, Goose, Frankie and his wives, Mayoress Madi and her staff, Stella Rose and her sister, Sasha, Millie, Sagira, AMber Da Weenie and her pack, White Dog ARmy, all of BLogville!  Everyone has a ride!

 Close up of the Gateway ARch- was not able to fit Puddles doing the tango with Pip on top of it - WHN's camera isn't very good!
 Puddles and Pip are now CEO and COO of Anheuser Busch!  They each have fabulous offices from which to run their beer empire!


 The horse and buggy reserved for our dynamic duo to relax and gaze out upon their adoring fans gathered in St Louis!
 As part of her CEO salary, Puddles has been given a beer wagon drawn by six CLydesdales, for her personal use.  Pip declined the honor so he was made CEO of Burger King instead- something to do with "Quality control" - He will be spending his days taste testing cheesburgers and drinking Bud Light, and getting paid to do it!

This beer vat is right outside the executive suite, so Pip and Puddles can keep an eye on things!

 After lunch, we swung by St Charles, across the Missouri
 River- Puddles wanted to check out the Lewis and Clark locations, seeing as she and Pip have travelled a far greater distance than they did in a much shorter time!  Here we have Puddles and Pip telling Lewis and CLark all about their mad cap adventures!

 Here, we have Puddles, the Mighty Huntress, telling Daniel Boone, another famed scout, explorer and hunter, all about her exploits in "deading".  She appears to be giving him some pointers and left him with a bottle of an adult beverage to enjoy!

Puddles, Pip and Daniel Boone- St Charles, Missouri

 This brewery really put on a great buffet for our Pip and Puddles- loads of cheeseburgers and local beers for them to try! 

 Ahhhh- dinner time!  Mr Geoff prepared Pip and Puddles favorite snacks so that they can get a good night's sleep before hitting the trails tomorrow

 Puddles just lovers the way Mr Geoff cooks!  Pip ate his cheesburgers and hit the sack early- he needs his rest since Puddles is driving!
 OOPS- we forgot to take down our outdoor Christmas tree- do think Puddles will like this?

HELP!!! HELP!! Send in back up! Bert and I are getting overwhelmed handling the overflow crowds at the Arch. We need back up NOW!!! I need a drink, where is the big horses with the beer. The crowds are getting restless. I sure hope PIP and puddles are having a good time. Could you send them back over to the Arch to say a few words to the crowd and BRING BEER!

Crowd control, crowd control many dogs, I can't seem to make my way to the beer fountain. Maybe I'll take the hot dog mobile ...sorry, Puddles, but a dog has to do what a dog has to do ...

The Daily Pip said...

Oh, those street lights are just so beautiful ...sniff, sniff ...the stars twinkle in the light of the beer bottles ...sniff, sniff

The Daily Pip said...

So that we are CEO of Anheuser Busch ...does that mean we actually have to go to the office every day ...because well, my schedule is already pretty full between naps and snacks ...not sure I can fit any "work" into my busy day.

Gosh, what a fun day for Pip's tour! I think that Louis and Clark and Daniel Boone stuff is very very cool. Pawesome history, and of course the Bud Light fountain is a perfect monument for this visit! BWAR HAR HAR
