That Time My Mom Got Kicked Out of Costco

I'm sure you know by now that we got a new family member in the new year - a beautiful little Welsh Terrier puppy called Winston. To know him is to love him, and with Glamma it was love at first sight. They have a mutual feeling of adoration for one another and a couple weeks ago I had an appointment so I asked mom if I could bring the boys and Winston over for the day. She answered with a resounding "OF COURSE!"

The next day she asked if she could bring them to Tulsa with her and my dad. They had some errands to run, and she wanted to take the boys out to eat. "Sure," I said, "I'll just leave Winston here and you guys and the boys can go." She told me no way - she wanted to bring Winston with her, too. I laughed at the thought, but told her it was up to her, and figured he could just stay in the car when they ran their errands and they probably wouldn't be gone long anyway. I don't know who would prefer to bring a puppy with them to Tulsa, but you've never met The Glamma. If it is a living and breathing being that belongs to one of her children - she is head over heels.

Friday rolled around, they came to get them, and Winston was going c-r-a-z-y as he does every time he sees them. She said they had to hurry and get going because she had placed a curbside order at Petsmart and needed to get there to pick it up. "What did you order?" I asked, assuming she was going to tell me a bag of treats or a new toy. 

"A dog carrier".

"Oh, I have one. It's this little travel crate and he'll go right in and go to sleep - he loves riding in the car."

"Noooo.... it's an actual dog carrier. I'm going to wear him!"

I burst into laughter - WHAT? He is a terrier - not a teacup poodle. A very active, very lively terrier pup. He does not sit still unless he is asleep. He hears a pin drop and takes off sprinting to find it. And she thinks she's going to wear him? In stores? Oh, the visual was too much at this point. We were all laughing!

She swooped him up, and whisked he and the boys away as I left for my appointment. About an hour later I was wrapping things up when I got a text from my dad of this photo of mom and Winston in Barnes & Noble. 

Sir Winston isn't like the rest. He's cultured. He spends his free time browsing books. 

I was dying - Winston inside Barnes & Noble in a baby carrier. Absolutely hilarious. There is a little clip for his collar inside the carrier and she said he stayed put, bobbing that head around and cocking it to the side any time anyone spoke to him. She said he was quite the hit with everyone he encountered and they all absolutely loved him.

And then they went to Costco.

Mom told the boys to kind of huddle around her as they walked in so the person at the entrance wouldn't ask questions. They did, but their efforts were in vain. They got caught.

"Excuse me, ma'am. Pets aren't allowed in Costco."

"Oh, I'm sorry. May I please bring my granddog in? He just got back from the vet he's not feeling very well. He needs me." (He had shots a few days earlier.)

"I'm sorry, no exceptions."

"I promise he won't leave my pouch." She immediately regretted calling it her pouch, thinking they'll think she's nuts and that not helping her case.

"It's against store policy, sorry."

"I understand completely and I'm so sorry to ask again, but ... he doesn't feel good. Please don't make us sit in the car."

"I'm sorry too, but you and your dog need to leave right now. Don't ask me again."

And at that point they scurried off the premises as quickly as possible and hightailed it out of there. No free samples or oohs and ahhs for this puppy dog at Costco! No one cared what his name was or how old he is - all he got was a firm scolding and a swift banishment to the car. Winston regretted the day he ever left the land of ceaseless stories and heaps of adulation. 

It kind of surprises me that they'll allow a dog in the carpeted Barnes & Noble but not on the concrete jungle that is Costco. But hey, I don't make the rules. All I know is that every time Glamma leaves the house she manages to come back home with a sensational story for the family memory books. 

But yeah - for future outings maybe Winston should just stick to walks in the park and a stop by Starbucks for his puppucino. A Trenta puppucino if Glamma's involved. 

I am a modern day homemaker with a passion for family, cooking, celebrating, decorating, travel, and memory making! The Lord has blessed me with the desires of my heart in my husband and our two sons. We recently built our dream home and cultivating a loving and happy haven for my family is where I find so much joy.


  1. Too funny! Winston is lucky to have such an adoring Glamma!

  2. Oh my goodness! I just knew Terry could talk them into letting them in Costco!! She is such a sweetheart!! How could they deny her??

    1. I don’t know but I would give anything to have been there to witness it! 😂

  3. I too am surprised that Terry wasn't able to convince them to let her bring in her grand dog. Too funny. Can't say she didn't try over and over and over.

  4. That’s hilarious! I have never ever seen anyone wearing a dog in a carrier! I mean, that’s one good glamma. (Also, maybe a sign she needs another grandbaby?! 🤪)

  5. For future reference, Atwood’s and Tractor Supply welcome dogs. Im pretty sure Lowe’s and Home Depot do too!

  6. My name is Brenda Bernard, I want to share this great wonderful testimony of my life to everyone. I was married to my husband Maxwell Owens, I love him so much we have been married for 12 years now with four kids.He went on vacation to Dubia where he met a lady called Tracy, he told me that he is no longer interested in our marriage anymore. I became so confused and started seeking help, all efforts to bring him back failed until I met a friend of mine called Sonia and I told her about my problem. She then introduces me to a man called Dr Olumide who cast a spell for her that brought her ex back to her within 48 hours. I contacted Dr Olumide to help me bring back my husband and he asked me not to worry that the oracle of his fore -fathers will fight for me. He told me in 48 hours he will reunite me and my husband together. After three days my husband called and told me he is coming back home to me and the kids. I was surprised when I saw him and he started begging for forgiveness..We are now living together as one happy family now. All thanks to great works of Dr. Olumide..if you need his help you can contact him via: text +1 (747) -322-1094 or whatsapp email:

  7. How I Got My Husband back... Am so excited to share my testimony of a spell caster who brought my husband back to me. My husband and I have been married for about 6 years now. We were happily married with two kids, a boy and a girl. 3 months ago, I started to notice some strange behavior from him and a few weeks later I found out that my husband is seeing someone else. He started coming home late from work, he hardly cared about me or the kids anymore, Sometimes he goes out and doesn't even come back home for about 2-3 days. I did all I could to rectify this problem but all to no avail. I became very worried and needed help. As I was browsing through the Internet one day, I came across a website that suggested that Dr.Odu adebayo can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on. So, I felt I should give him a try. I contacted(WhatsApp) him and told him my problems and he told me what to do and I did it and he did a spell for me. 48 hours later, my husband came to me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promised never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. My family are living together happily again.. All thanks to Dr.odu adebayo If you have any problem contact him and I guarantee you that he will help you. He will not disappoint you. you can WhatsApp him(+2347055287754)or Email him at :

  8. I can’t believe that just with a phone call I made to Dr.Benjamin, I got my ex back to me within 48 hours interval. I had read some stuff about Dr.Benjamin before I called him but I didn’t know that all those stuff were so accurate until I got my ex back, After getting my ex back I taught it wise to share my testimony with everyone on this website that Dr.Benjamin is a real and powerful spell caster that rebuild any broken relationship or marriage with a love spell. Do feel free to Contact Dr.Benjamin Email:
