Meet you at DQ

The Dairy Queen near our house is awesome.  They give us free doggie cones at the drive thru.  I thought maybe my blogging friends would also like to get free doggie cones, so I decided to write some instructions for you all.

Ordering is very important.  There are a lot of good things on the menu, however, many of the items have the dreaded chocolate in them, so doggie beware!  I stick to just a plain ice cream cone myself.  So while Dad is deciding what to order, I send Sibe Mind Meld messages to the drive thru worker so they know what I want to order.
As Dad pulls up to the drive thru window, he rolls the back window down and Kat and I make sure our presence is known.  That's an important step because moms and dads don't want to look like pigs, so the DQ employees need to know that some ice cream is for us!
Usually at this point, the drive thru employee says, "Oh, you're the most beautiful dogs I've ever seen!" and all the other employees whole-heartedly agree.  Then they hand out two doggie cones.  Usually we just get the cones without a bowl, but the day Mom took the pictures, one of the cones was leaking so the drive thru person put them in lids for us.
Kat usually eats hers a little slower than me.  She even took the bowl instead of just taking the cone like me!
Mom couldn't get a good picture of me, but here's her attempt.  I just love ice cream cones.  I gobble them up at just the right speed.  Remember pups, not too fast because you don't want to get a brain freeze!
Well, that's it!  Go get your human and head out to DQ!

That looks so cool and refreshing. I'll need to try that since there is a DQ just down the road.

P.S. Dad just told me that we finally got a Sonic too. But it's a million miles away so I'll probably never go there.

What a great instructional blog. I now know how to get and eat the ice cream from the Dairy Queen. We will have to make trip down to Scapoose soon.

Great tip! I wish we could try that here. Dogs are not welcome in most places because we live in a majority Muslim country .If we popped our heads from the backseat of our car at the local drive-thru, they will most probably step back then pet us. Still,we're gonna hint to Mommmy to get us some the next time she goes.

I want some icecream too! Mum never takes me anywhere good. The only place we go is to the V-E-T and that's no fun at all.

First Zimmie at Starbuck's, now you two at the Dairy Queen. Life is so unfair.

Wooos, Steve & Kat,

Thanks for the drive in instructions - that looks pretty "cool". (ha-roo-roo-roo)

You reminded we that we haven't been to our local ice cream place for a while... time to claw the humans. But ours doesn't have a drive in, we wait in the car then eat outside at a table.

It's our duty as siberians to go places and allow people to admire our cuteness! Good job!

Woos & a-roos,
Star & Jack a-roo too

I mean *who* could deny a Sibe a cone during the middle of summer? What a fabwoolous idea! And thanks for the step-by-step pictorial on how to obtain some free doggy cones. I will let you know how it works for me & Kiley.

My mom says that giving out doggie cones was the best part of when she worked at dairy queen so many years ago

One of the pack said...

Steve's cone. Steve's clone. Steve is a clown. ....

Steve's cone sounds scrumptious. Mom doesn't let us have much in the way of ice cream or ice milk, but I do get to lick the cup after mom's fruit protein shake. Yours still sounds better.

We may have to protest. Thanks for the info!

Loving Life,

Thats just awesome. And you two are so cute, they have no choice
but to serve you with a smile.

We will let you know when we get to try your instructions.

Kathryn and Ari said...

Wow. We had no idea about this free cone campaign. If I wear dog ears and whiskers do you think they might give one to Ari AND me?

Hi Steve,

These DQs...they seem to have a soft-corner for dogs! We've got MDs (Mother Dairies) that don't care two hoots for us!

Doesn't matter! I'll just turn my head and say, "Ice-creams? They are bad for health." (Remember the story of the fox who couldn't reach the grapes!)

Come visit me sometime! The address is oorvi.wordpress.com!

Licks n Wags,

RATS! Our DQ closed. This ice cream thing doesn't look too good for us. There's still a 5 mile long line at the new Sonic.
