Tour of New York
Today at 8 a.m. we left and took the girls and drove to downstate NY to pick up a motorcycle the hubby bought. Okay, so Mapquest has a few kinks in it. The 2.4 miles with slight left was more like 12 miles on a winding road and then turning right. We were almost to PA. When we got there the guys said we had to drive to another location to get the cycle. Drove there and put it on the trailor, which between loading and talking took another hour. The girls and I were very bored waiting. We took off from there to drive to see the Pug babies. Our time schedule was to arrive there at 11 a.m. At 11:15 a.m. we figured out that we were heading south instead of north...yeah, did hubby say the sun was at his back??? Got ourselves turned around and arrived at 1:30 p.m., with a pitstop for drinks and bathroom break. When we got to our friends we took the Pugs outside for a romp. This was the first time mama Pug got to play with our girls. She liked them fine as long as they stayed AWAY from the puppies. They could walk by, but God help them if they stuck their faces in the pen. We broke up a couple of fights between Zoey our fiesty little girl and mama. They have the same personality and really like each other. I did get to hang out in the pen area and hold the babies. They are one week old today. They have doubled in weight. Their ears are starting to look like little Pug ears, but their eyes are still not open. It is amazing to watch the changes up close. I think our family has a favorite, but I REALLY need to see eyes open! Also, personality. My friend says I should let the girls pick....haha. Chloe would probably run and Zoey would want to play with them all.
We left from their house around 3:30 p.m. and the girls and I napped all the way home and after we got home, we took another nap. All that driving was exhausting. Tomarrow is breakfast with a couple of local Pug friends (No Pugs allowed).
