Breakfast at Panera's

Good morning pup-pals - We are having such mild weather here that mom and dad and I got up and headed to Panera Bread this morning for a little breakfast. I put on my spiffy new tie that matches my spiffy carrying bag. What do you think?
Mom shared a little bit of her French Toast Bagel and Hazelnut Cream Cheese with me
I licked the cream cheese off - and left the bread part - I'm not a bread/cookie eater!!!!
Still licking my lips here..........

here I am watching the little sparrows who are eating the bread pieces AFTER I licked off all the good stuff.........I really wanted to chase those birdies but mom wrapped a leash around my tie!
still watching those birdies and all tangled up in that dreadful leash!

My tie and my bag came from SIESTA DOG over on ETSY - so if you are interested, check them out.....they're totally pawsome!

Also - mom is taking a poll - it's on the right sidebar - will you answer her question? THANKS!



  1. Checkers, I have always thought that you are quite handsome, but that tie really does it for me. It is you. It must be fun to go out to eat with Mom and Dad, we can't do that here. Grrrrr. Maybe someday.

    licks and sniffs, Sasha

  2. Love the new layout! I think your matching tie and bag are simply adorable. It's so cool that you get to eat at the restaurants.

  3. The tall guy loves Paneras, but there aren't any out where he lives now.

    If you don't want your bread, send it to me. I'll eat it!

    Your bow tie looks fantastic!

  4. Hi Checkers,

    You don't like eating bread? We love eating bread!

    Adele, Vincent & Bella

  5. Hello Checkers,

    you look great with your bows and matching bag!!!

    best regards

  6. Please send the bread foodables to me. I will gladly eat them.

    We took your poll. We have doggie insurance, but have not been able to use it yet. First I had an ear infection, but it wasn't covered because I had one six months before we bought the insurance. Then Pee-Wee got his boo boo leg, but since the insurance only covers each incident she decided not to use it cause he didn't have anything bad this time.


    Momma is going to keep track and see how the money balances out. I guess it is really for something VERY bad, so it would be a good thing if she doesn't need it.


  7. You look absolutely spiffy, Checkers! Your mommy sure dresses you nice. What a lovely way to spend a morning ... pawsome, indeed! Have a grand weekend.

  8. Oh Checkers, your matching bag and tie are just fabulous!!! If I could fit into a bag like that, my assistant could take me everywhere... at some point she'd end up in traction with a bad back, but it would so be worth it. I think I'll go order one right now. You have such excellent taste... what style/color should I get??

  9. WOW! I never get to go to Panera's! Maybe I need to be a snappier dresser like you, then I could go. What do you think?
    Play bows,

  10. Your tie is great and you look wonderful sittig there like a BIG Doggie! Glad you had some nommies and watched the birds. We hope you have a GRRR-8 weekend!

  11. cool bow tie - it is awesome

  13. Mmmmmmmmm. You're sure lucky you got to go to breakfast and get some cream cheese. Mmmmmmmmm....


  14. Checkers, you would sooooo rock Fashion Fridays!!!

    I think I will be giggling all day thinking of Tank in one of those funny bags...teehee...I think he really IS in touch with his feminine side and won't admit it!!


  15. Checkers this is my most favorite outfit! Tell your mom no more shirts and stuff... MORE BOWTIES!!!!!

    xo sugar & martine

    ps: we did not know tomatoes could be a tummy problem... we know about most toxic stuff and Sugar usually only gets one tomato no more... but none for her now! What other things can cause belly problems?

  16. I love bread!! Can you save it to me next time??
    So nice you go for a breakfast with your dad and mom! You look great in your tie!

  17. O Checkers my handsome and dashin pal... I love taste of cream cheese and also bread... but taste of sparrow real good too!

    The Mom say you are quite polite boy too to sit at table for breakfast at yummy Panera Bread. For some reason, the Mom think I would not be... She wrong, I think but do not promise.

    Love your tie, my friend!

    wif love from the Luke

  18. Daddy use to be Fat fat Daddy, then he lost weight and now he's Not so Fat fat Daddy, a bit long winded so he's NSFF Daddy. Have a great weekend.

    Simba and Jazzi xx

  19. You look so very dashing in your new bag and tie!

  20. oh yes, and for your poll. I does have health insurance, I had it right from the day I was born so we is covered against any old illnesses and stuff like that. Mum pays more to make sure I have a whole of life policy, which means and injury or illness I get can be claimed for each time it occurs. We has not had to use it yet luckily, but we know how easy it can be through owning other pets.

    Mum had a cat who got hit by a car, all his injuries added up to thousands of pounds which my grandpawents owed for ages. I know dogs who have torned knee ligaments (like Auntie Penny did) and the specialist operation for a young dog can cost £4000 alone, so for us, it's worth it for peice of mind. Mum is glad to know that if anything happened to me and the vet said can we do 'this' she would be able to say 'yes' without stopping to think about monies.

  21. AWWWWWH Checkers.....YOU are melting our mommy's heart... she says that the spiffy new tie fits your handsomeness so well. How nice of your mommy and daddy to take you out for breakfast with them. U seemed that you enjoyed your time with them

    Any fun plans you got for this weekend with them?

    We wish you a pawsome weekend, pal :)

  22. oh by the way, for the poll, we answer by No, we don't have pet insurance and don't plan to get one.
