30 Days of Thanks - Day 29

Mom told us we should give thanks today that us furry kids don't need a car! She hates cars right now. Our human brother's car went in for inspection today and the mechanic told our mom to "get rid of that car asap"! Our brother has a loan and still owes. Mom is worried now. Then mom went to post office after work and when she went to put her window back up she heard a big CRUNCH and now her window is down in her door and it is due to rain today and snow tomarrow. This is making daddy mad and mommy really sad! Human sister's car is going in for inspection today too, mommy says she expects bad news!

30 Days of Thanks - Day 24

I'm not sure about the Pug gang around here, but the humans are happy to have finished up the new Pergo floor in our den. Phew! I forfeited the "Black Friday" shopping and helped hubby install our new floor. First we had to rip out the carpet, the padding, the tackless and all those staples. The floor looks so good! He still has to do the landing and the 3 steps down into that room and put down the corner molding, but the floor is very nice. We also finished up painting the windows in my son's old room and hung the new blinds. I got to try out hubby's new power drill, great fun and sure beats using a screw driver! Watch out HGTV here we come! HAHA

30 Days of Thanks - Day 22 Let's talk Marty

Okay, let's talk about Marty to clarify his existence! First, yes, Marty is indeed Carlos. He is 7 1/2 years young. Although we know very little about his previous life, we do know he was with his last family for only 5 months. He is the Pug that I rescued and delivered to CNY Pug Rescue, the whole 184 mile journey thing. After I dropped him to them, I kept in contact with them about his placement. All the homes that had wanted an older male Pug were not interested in him. The second week he was there, a woman was going to adopt him, but she changed her mind the day before he was to go with her, so........ it was decided that he should come and live with us. I know weak moment, crazy in the head, the whole nine yards. Yes, four Pugs is a lot, but he deserves a forever home. He has adapted very well to living with us and the girls have adapted to him quite well too. There are the crazy moments, but that was true even before he arrived. He sleeps in a porta-crib in my bedroom at night and the girls get in the bed and everyone is just fine with that. He seems to be getting a little less clingy with me. Before, everytime I left the room he would sit by that door I went through and cry. Now I think he realizes that I will indeed be back. We've learned a few things about him in the past 2 1/2 weeks he has been with us.... he is wonderful with potty outside, he does NOT mark in the house, he runs in from potty like the devil is after him for a treat, he snores horrible, when he coughs he sounds like a human, he had bad breath, hates garbage trucks, and loves to play crazy with Rosie. He is home.

30 Days of Thanks - Day 19

The girls WERE giving thanks for the bubblegum flavored rawhides they and Marty received today, but all got a "time - out" for bad behavior. Marty is getting a tad possesive of me and frankly Chloe does not like it. I guess he will learn fast that it is 3 to 1 - not in his favor. Hopefully this is just another little blip in the radar of Puggy love between them all.

So, tonight I am thankful to be resting after PAINTING for two days. Yesterday I painted the ceiling in my son's room, then the walls. Today I painted the closet doors...(oh those little louvers!) and the bedroom door. The room is a strange shade of green that looks one color in daylight and another color by lamplight. The hubby painted the 3 floor to ceiling windows, and then got tired (remember third shift guy he is). I finished the baseboards and then cleaned everything up. Tomarrow he promises to paint the windows themselves, so hopefully by the time I get home I can hang the new blinds. Still to come ripping out the carpet....along with getting the bed from the attic, the mattresses from the top of the garage, etc. I am also moving all my scrapbooking in there, so that will be another whole thing! In between all this we picked out a new Pergo floor for our den and hubby tells me it is going to be our Thanksgiving project! Good thing my son is coming into town on Wed. (to do his laundry), I'm sure he'd LOVE to help with all our nonsense!

30 Days of Thanks - Day 13

The girls (opps and Marty) are allowing me to be the guest speaker tonight. A lot going on this past weekend....

Friday was a day off from work. I signed up for a scrapbook seminar at a new place over the weekend. Friday it started at 3pm and went until 11pm! Dinner was gourmet pizza and ceaser salad...yummy. Saturday after a quick stop at Walmart, I got there about 10am and stayed until 8pm. Lunch was yummy wraps. I especially loved the veggie pesto one I had. Along with the wraps we had homemade Italian Wedding Soup. Saturday night for dinner we were served pasta with red sauce or alfredo, salad with feta cheese, garlic toast and wine! Opps almost forgot the pastry tray. Did I say this was a scrapbooking weekend???? I told the ladies that I felt like a "husband". I will definetely sign up at this person's events again! I did actually get some scrapbooking done too! My daughter's book is now done through 5th grade! WOO HOO. I also have my Cape May Vacation book done through 1997. Really moving along, aren't I? If anyone out there has hopes of scraping...(AM???) I suggest doing it as your children is bittersweet doing it when they're all grown up!

On Sunday we had our Pug Meetup "Brunch with Santa". This was scheduled early due to photographer being there and our coordinator due to have a baby in the next 2 weeks! Lots of pics, but I'll save them for AFTER Thanksgiving. I am a co-organizer of our meetup group and got there at 9:30 am and never got home until 6:30 pm. The Small Dog Meetup group mixed in with the Pugs, and we ended up with 2 settings. It was a VERY long day. I'm happy to report that Marty had a great time at his first meet-up. He actually comes to his new name after only a week. Who says you can't teach an old dog new tricks?

Also, Sunday was my sweet Chloe's 4th birthday. So hard to believe I have had her for 4 years. I had wanted a Pug for so long and I remember how I cried when I got her. Thinking of Chloe's birthday brought to mind another anniversay of 11/12. Sunday was the 6th year anniversary of my mom's death. So hard to believe she has been gone for 6 years! I no longer come home from work and think "I've got to call mom".....I still miss her so.

Wow, a surprise and happy ending/beginning

After a long day...stopped home to take the kids out before meeting with Otis' new owner, and found a package containing all this....

Wow, Ragus mama, what a great surprise. I have already eaten 3 and opened the pecans and ate some of them too. Are they from your yard???? A big thank-you from the sunshine deprived state of NY!

After this yummy snack, off to pick-up Otis with his new forever mom. I think it looks like love, don't you?

Giving thanks for toys....

Meet Marty...

Chloe thinks he's fine, Rosie is afraid of him, and Zoey.....well.....this could take some time. She's fine until I pick him up or when I was on the sofa and he came to sit by me. Hopefully she will settle down and Marty can stay. He's a really sweet boy! He had a nice bath tonight and is now howling downstairs in his crate...could be a long night!

30 days of giving thanks

As found at Elvispug this month is National Blog Posting Month, blogging everyday, no matter how little a post. I decided to take a little different spin on the theme and am doing 30days of giving thanks...Pug style.

Day 1 - Giving thanks for a comfortable lap to rest on after a fun day.

Zoey & her daddy

Pug rescue updates

Carlos turned out to be quite a gentleman. He is hopefully going to his new forever home on Friday. I told her if it falls through I want him back!

Otis went for his curve today. Everything went very well and I met with the vet and current owner to discuss the shots, etc. I had offer of a foster parent for him for 6 months, but the owner didn't want him moved around a lot. I agreed with her, but told her we have to be honest that it may be more difficult with his diabetes to find him a new home. She decided to try the shots for a week (he goes for his re-check next Wed). We parted ways in the parking lot and when I got home, she called to thank me for my support and help and we discussed the reality of the situation being she just can NOT afford to keep we were talking on the phone, my puggy friend called (Rosie's grama) and told me she has someone who wants him! She's a nurse and his illness and costs are not a problem for her! God does work in mysterious ways!
