Happy 6th Birthday Rosie!!!!

6 years ago today we got that early morning call to say our baby girl had been born. She sure has mastered that "look" me, she's happy, content and a tiny bit crazy, not as worried as she appears! Happy Birthday Rosie!!!!

Favorite Gifts - II

Over the years I've seen cabinets to hold ribbon.  Some were very small and cheaply made.  Others too expensive!!!  So, I asked P if he would make me one for Christmas. He took some measurements and surprised me by REALLY making me one!

 He got added to my Pug tree! I seem to have collected a lot of unique ornaments over the years!

Favorite Gifts 2011

C bought me this ADORABLE little sewing machine and sewing box. It has to be the cutest thing I've ever seen! It runs on batteries or electricity and is small enough to transport easily to camp!

Christmas Morning....when you have Pugs your never really alone!

There was some concern for me this year about Christmas Day. This would be the first time P and I would be alone since 1982! I wondered if I would be a blubbering mess overcome by sadness. Well, it appears that with six little Pugs your NEVER alone!

Christmas Eve

We started the festivities with just our family early on Christmas Eve.  We had a few snacks and we opened our gifts to each other.  After we headed off to my sister's house for dinner.

Merry Christmas!!!

This was the first Christmas morning without human children since 1983.  I was worried I was going to be sad and lonely......that wasn't the case!  These six little loves filled our morning!

We hope everyone has a very Merry Christmas and enjoys their day with whomever they spend it with!

Out of town wedding

Last Sunday morning P, C, and I got up VERY early and headed to Maryland for our nephew's wedding.  He is in the Navy and being deployed, so this timeframe worked out perfect for them.  I had never been to a Christmas Wedding.  It was so pretty!  I haven't had time to get photos from C and P yet.  Unfortunately I came down sick and am struggling to keep moving! 


On the way home C talked P into stopping at Gettysburg. We didn't spend a lot of time there, but at least I can say I've been there!

Our first moment together!

A piece of giving...

Meet Bruno working it for rescue!  Bruno's mom sent me this photo and note about him and one of my "magical" bowties!  LOVE IT!!!!

Hi Debbie!
I recently purchased the doggy bowtie from you for my Pug Bruno. Bruno comes to work with me every day. The first day he wore the collar, a customer walked in and saw Bruno and said, "Oh hey little guy, you look like a chippendale with that bowtie, here's a dollar!" So the guy slipped the dollar under his collar! You will not belive this, but that first day Bruno made $7.00! He wore it the next day and the same thing happened, this time Bruno made $15.00 so we decided that Bruno's Dollar Collar is working as a fundraiser, and Bruno will be donating all of his tips he collects this holiday season and in the future to Southern Nevada Pug Rescue!!!! I just thought I would share this with you since you are the creator of this magical bowtie collar!
Thank you!
Bruno and I wish you a very happy holiday

Ready for Christmas?

Wow, I really can't believe it's the countdown to Christmas!!! I'm not sure about anyone else, but this year I am frankly JUST NOT READY.  We have an out of town wedding this weekend and instead of saying to myself...let's have fun, I'm saying "how the heck am I going to get it all  done???? "  I think the main problem this year is my complete lack of focus!  Sort of feel like a fish with two tails. 
This is how my evening looks: Post Office on way home from work; Kohl's to purchase a particular gift for my husband (and no P I'm not telling here!); Sewing project for wedding to finish, craft projects to finish; ALL gifts to wrap; and loving my furry ones in between!
If your as bad as I am and still at a loss of what to get your dog loving friends OR perhaps yourself?  Pop over and visit my Etsy shop.  The last day to ship Priority Mail packages in time for Christmas is December 21st!!! I have gift certificates available in any denomination and will wrap and ship your purchase direct to the recipient if you want!!!

Christmas Meetup

Saturday was our Christmas Meetup. Everyone piled in the car for our hour drive. I'm pretty sure they thought we were going to camp. Silly little Pugs! P worked the door for awhile and was snacking.  It didn't take long for them to locate him.

How about this cake?  One little girl there didn't want to eat this fried Pug! 

Stewie met Santa for the first time...

Group photo with Santa.  Kiki was not impressed with Santa, but Rosie gave him a kiss.

Please notice Marty sitting so nice...the others....not so good!  Funny part, I could hear other people saying "how does she do it?".....

sew what?

Before Thanksgiving I was contacted by a company to do a wholesale order for them.  Samples were sent, emails were exhanged and they ordered 44 pairs.  Yes, 44 pairs.  I managed to finish after a marathon sewing day Sunday.  44 pairs....with 3 buttons each.  That's a whole lot of buttons!  I was VERY happy to package them up and ship them out.

little jammies lined up to go....

and the furry ones, waiting for mom to finish
 Now it's back to our regular schedule of holiday sewing and getting ready for the BIG meetup Christmas Party on Saturday.  Here comes Christmas...ready or not!

Blogoversary.....missed it!

Seems I've been  so busy I missed my blogoversary!!!  On November 3, 2005 I was on the internet looking at all things "pug" and came across a blog.  I had no idea what a blog was, but thought "what the heck" let's try it.  Now 6 years have passed.  Our house has gone from this.......

 to this.....
I've traveled to Indy (3 times!!!), Raleigh NC, Charlotte NC, Blowing Rock NC, PA, and all over NYS and lived to tell.  I've written 1,442 posts, taken zillions of photos, cried, laughed, learned, and loved!  Thanks for being part of my life!!!
