Sophie's first "camp" trip

Last weekend we squeezed in a trip to camp too. Sophie's first. She never missed a beat and it was like she was always there.

My belated birthday post

This was a BIG number year for me.  Really BIG.  So BIG that I sort of felt weird about it. 

But then my plans included a family gathering AND this...

Best day EVER!!!!

Asbury Park, New Jersey

We landed at our destination for Pugapalooza! Curly Tails Pug weekend!
Sophie took a shine to Lucky - he is blind and diabetic, but honestly you can't tell!  Everyone was very tired from the day of driving and picked their spots in bed.
They even let me squeeze in.  More tomorrow!

First stop Connecticutt

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.
so did Sophie and Stewie 

Sophie was wondering what was happening since we switched cars and I wasn't driving this leg.

Stay tuned......

Sophie & Stewie's adventure

Last Friday morning I escaped my crazy life for a crazy toad trip with Stewie & Sophie.

Sophie has not road tripped except for coming to live with us!

17!!! Marty is 17!

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!
