We landed at our destination for Pugapalooza! Curly Tails Pug weekend!
Wednesday, May 11, 2016
the home of Wilma, Sluggo, Emmy, Lucky and Madge and their humans. Anyone remember the sunflower sisters? Wilma is one of the founding flowers! Lucky and Emmy were joining us for our adventure. It seems like this may have been a rescue adventure - Stewie came from SEPRA (now disbanded), Sophie from Green Mountain, Lucky from PRONE and Emmy from Buffalo Pug. The human dad may have been a bit worried, but I assured him 6 is our max number!
Anyhow, we had a quick stop and jumped in the car and headed South.....
Isn't Wilma adorable???? See you on the return trip!
Lucky and Emmy settled in for a nap.

Today our boy turns 17! We can hardly believe it. For those that have never read Marty's story, he joined our family at the age of 7. His back story one of a family breakup, a temp home, another temp home, then another. The call came in to me...old dog, going blind, not working out. The next day I met to pick him up to deliver to rescue an hour from home. Something happened on that ride...we connected. When we reached our destination he did NOT want to leave my car. I felt horrible. My rescue friend assured me she would find him a great home quickly. We chatted over the next two weeks. Nothing was clicking for him. So....there I went driving back to rescue to adopt him! He made #4 in our family and our first boy. He had cancer surgery, oral troubles and occasionally would have a seizure time faint. At 9 the vet told us to be prepared as he could probably "go" after one of his episodes....and now this guy is turning 17 years old! He fooled them all!!! He is now blind and deaf and other old man issues, but he gets around the house just fine, barks for dinner and knows when his mama is around...that's good enough for me!
