New Years with Treats

High: 43° F
Low: 24° F
Conditions: Sunny with wind gusts up to 50 mph.

Nope, it’s not another heat wave in Maine. Instead, we’re coming to you from Winston-Salem, North Carolina: home of the Wake Forest Demon Deacons.

Not an animal mascot, but we think it's pretty gosh darn cool nonetheless.

We humans are celebrating the New Year with a 3.5 mile road race at midnight. And what better way to prepare for a race than with a double scoop of frozen custard. And what better place to get custard than at this, quite possibly the best ice cream place anywhere:

That’s right: WOLFIE’S!

Our good friend Tubey has been keeping track of mascots for some time now. And he’s always quick to point out when stupid humans try to substitute another dog for a husky. Now, we may be wrong, but we think this ‘wolfie’ looks pretty husky to us.

PLUS, Wolfie’s trademark treat is the SCREAMWICH. And we’ve been around you wooing dogs long enough to know that sounds like an apt description for you, too.

If they’re still open, we might just have to get another scoop after the race. Maybe we’ll see you there. In the meantime, Happy New Year to Woo You All!

Wow! I need to go to Wolfies. I love Dairy Queen but apparently it must be like broccoli!

If you think a dog scream is bad, Woo have obviously never heard Boo in heat. Oy.
Happy New Year Ari! This is going to be a good one. I can tell :)

I'm sure it's a lot warmer where you are then it is here in Maine today. You picked a good time to be out of state. Happy New Year.

Wake Forest University? I've heard that they have a great sports medicince department. Any truth to that? Wolfies Rules! Way to go Ari.

Pippa said...

Wow, how horrific. Exercise at bedtime. And frozen custard instead of toast. Dear me, I couldn't manage any of that.

I love the tag line! So cool. Happy New Year to you too. Hope the humans did great at the race. Of course, if dogs were allowed, you know who would come up tops!
