july is national ice cream month

Hello every bloggie!

I've been waiting and waiting for the announcement. I thought for sure Maggie and Mitch would break the news! But I will do the honors for this historic day! 

On July 9, 1984, President Ronald Reagan proclaimed July National Ice Cream Month and designated the third Sunday in July as National Ice Cream Day. Not to be confused with Ice Cream Day, National Ice Cream Day falls on July 19th this year. So July has to be one of my favorite Months!

I know many of my bloggie friends love ice cream.. like Eric the Square who just made his sweetie Toffee a special mix from Ben and Jerry's.  Maggie and Mitch eat it every day! Look at the hypno eyes above. I think Mitch has a masterful tongue technique for getting every drop in a dairy queen dish.  I'm wondering.. what is favorite flavor and what that says about you. Take the Ice Cream Flavorology

Choose it from the list below to find out! 
Butter Pecan
Chocolate Chip
Double Chocolate Chunk
Mint Chocolate Chip
Rocky Road

Hmm I wonder what your ice cream personality is? Bark about it in your comment and share your favorite ice cream joint.  My mom's all time favorite place is in Milwaukee... Kopp's Frozen Custard!Yummers! good stuff!

.. And most importantly, find an ice cream festival to go to this month.  You can find some posted at this wonderful blog site- Scoopalicious!  

Does every bloggie want to post an ice cream slobbers photo on July 19th for Ice Cream Dy!  Let's plan on it! I scream U scream We all scream for ICE CREAM!


  1. I've only had Frosty Paws and a few licks here and there. We live near Liks and I lick the sidewalk when we walk around there.

    Thanks for the reminder.

  2. mint chocolate chip and certainly do uphold the month well. am an ice cream officianado sandy

  3. My favorite, on this list, is mint chocolate chip & I sort of fit the profile..
    ambitious - not really (I leave that up to Kevin)
    confident - yes
    skeptical about life - no
    realist - YES
    stubborn - YES, YES
    loyal, honest & dependable - YES, YES, YES, YES
    So only 2 no's & a whole lot of yes's...that's a pretty good profile of me:)
    Have a yummy month of ice cream Norwood!
    love ya,

  4. Hi Norwood...I have never tried ice cream but I think I would pick Vanilla from this list...let's see what my profile is:
    Colorful, dramatic risk taker who relies more on intuition than logic - check...that seems right
    etc. etc. etc.
    On to the romantic compatibility...
    any available Rocky Roads out there?
    your pal,
    p.s. you & Tula got a little Chinese torture treatment in mind for me???...I don't know, maybe I would like that big stretch!

  5. We picked vanilla too since we shouldn't really have chocolate and here is what it said:


    There is nothing plain about Vanilla. In fact, if you love Vanilla, you are actually a colorful, dramatic risk taker who relies more on intuition than logic. Emotionally expressive and idealistic, you tend to set high goals for yourself, and push yourself to meet and exceed them. On the romantic front, you tend to rely on secure romantic relationships that fulfill your emotional needs while working toward future objectives."

    That sounds like a lot of fancy words, but we will take them for what it's worth as long as we get some ice cream.

    July 20th is Dad's birthday and one of our human uncle's too. We will be celebrating it on July 19th so there will definitely be some ice cream served on that day.

    Woos, the OP Pack

  6. Wow, that's a neat idea Norwood. Unfortunately, we cant have ice cream anymore because any change in Benson's diet makes him sick and he gets bad pukies and other gross stuff... so then I, Gibson, cant have any either. We look forward to seeing everydoggie's pictures though!

    Mom is a mint chocolate chip lover, but she says she isn't picky when it comes to ice cream. She'll eat any flavor! Especially from Baskin Robbins!

    Woofs, and Wags,
    Gibson (and Benson)

  7. Khool idea!

    If Mom khan't find my khup of yummy khustard from Rita's on her laptop thingie, it will give her reason to take me there again!

    She did have a khoupon fur some HD Sorbet -I know, not ice khream but she did get the MANGO flavour!

    My mom grew up loving mint chokhlolate chip or blakhk raspberry!


  8. Hi Norwood

    I don't like icecreme :(
    but my Mommy (she eat it to much)
    But she can have it .... LOL

    Kareltje =^.^=

  9. hey Norwood, our favorite ice cream is wild mountain huckleberry! it's swirled with vanilla and is so yummylicious. we only get it on our birthdays or mom's birthday, so now we have to wait until sept. for Bailey's birthday. long time, but YAY for ice cream.


  10. Thanks for letting me know, Norwood about this most spectacular holiday! I like ice cream-any flavor will do but chocolate is a no-no for us canines, as you well know.

    Mom likes coffee which says "You tend to become bored by DULL relationships and THRIVE on new and EXCITING ventures."

    I think that's why she likes me so.

    Have a Happy National Ice cream day!
    Chester ;0=)

  11. Hi Norwood - ooh, ice cream is our female human's favourite food, she's ALWAYS eating it, that's why she's so nice and cuddly (but don't tell her we said that - he he he!) She hasn't let us have any yet - she says she 'doesn't want to go down that road' whatever that means....? Our male human's more of a soft touch - we're sure we'll get some from him at some point....! We like the sound of vanilla - mmmm, yummy! Tail wags - JD and Max.

  12. We only get vanilla and it is good - mommy gets spumoni cause she is a very old school italian person

    we love the little homemade ice cram place thet our friend Bella the dobie's parents own - we dont recall the name

    Woodrow sweetie & MJ

  13. Oh Ice Cream is so yummy. Mom's favorite is Beth Marie's in Denton Texas. They make homemade ice cream and homemade waffle cones..
    We will have to look for a festival. It may melt really fast here in Texas..
