We have deleted from our site...think maybe everyone else should do! Now we know what they were having those little bugs DO!
Our friend Rosie gave us this award last week and yesterday Sandra & Coco gave it to us too!. This award represents the blogs that truly love someone or something. It´s a ladybug and they are known for giving us luck whenever we see one! Not sure what those two little bugs are up too????
So we be passing the "love" on to: Gus & Indy, Nevis, Girlville, Swampgirl, and Elvis Pug.

I inherited Gill in July of 2007. He came home with our son that summer and all the other assortment of aquatic pets. He originally hailed from our house in our son's room, but when he moved to Buffalo for year...off he went. I am sure at that time he had no name. A nameless little fish swimming about with other nameless little fish. Anyhow, back to him becoming mine....that July he came and was residing in a fish tank in our dining room. It was....temporary. I believe there were also a few guppies with him. The tank filter was acting up, the guppies went to the rainbow bridge and Gill held on. It seemed ridiculous him swimming around in that tank, so I changed him into our vacant goldfish bowl. P said "he's never gonna last in that bowl" "he's a tropical fish, he needs air, he needs warm water"....well, he survived. When our son moved in December of that same year, he decided Gill should stay with us and become my fish. That's when I named him. I figured he seemed to be a lucky little fish...hence the Irish name! We figure Gill is probably at least 4 years old now...not sure what that is in fish years? Oh, and we're really not sure Gill is a boy???? Imean, how would I know?????

We also had a meeting for our fundraising events. We are very excited about the stuff we have coming up. A walk in May and Pugstock in September. We are trying to be thoughtful of the economy and keeping costs down for sponsors, vendors, and attendees. We want to host events that are fun, pet friendly and most importantly we strive to raise awareness of the commitment of pet ownership, for the life of the animal!

The "non-Pug" in my header is my granddaughter.....Bailey. This photo is from when they stayed with us for 3 weeks...according to the Pugs, it was a very, very, very, long three weeks. They don't mind her, but she is so big and so clumsy and plays so hard.
M's baby is still in NIC unit. Test results won't be in until late next week. Prognosis not confirmed. He is having a g-tube put in surgically next week, poor little guy. They may get to take him home after that...future unknown. It's still crazy to think this is all happening...that small percent....happening. We continue to pray.
The rescue Pugs are doing awesome! H has decided she wants them BOTH! I think her exact words were "how could I pick?"...that's how we end up with four...not being able to pick! They are so sweet and I know her mom is enjoying them too.
Don't forget the Green Mountain Silent Auction. I only got ONE scrapbook page to send in...Swampgirl! Guess she wins my secret prize by default. I'll show my pages soon. Sorry for the lack of photos. The Pugs are on strike and told me no photos until they go for a walk tomarrow!
Thought for today: "No one is in charge of your happiness, but you!"....keep smiling!

My bf L got news of a problem in her town.
A number of officials assisted in the removal of living and dead dogs found inside a residence Tuesday, on a frigid evening where the temperatures inside the unheated house weren’t much higher than they were outside.A a neighbor who had looked after JB since he moved to ***** last July, said she had reported her concerns to the Sheriff’s Department earlier in the day.Y was in tears as she provided a list of the names of living and dead dogs removed. After two County sheriff’s deputies, sheriff’s investigator, and district attorney’s office investigator went through the house, more than a half dozen live dogs in poor condition, a live pigeon, three dead adult dogs and 12 dead puppies were removed.
She went to see them Saturday and I drove down there with her yesterday and spent several hours holding them. Wow......
Has anyone ever seen a brindle Pug?????? The 2 brindle females are pregnant. Both are extremely shy and spent almost the entire time hiding in the corner cage.
This little apricot female is skin and bones under the sweater. She wants to be held all the time. What a doll. The little male has eye ulcers so bad it seems he is already blind.
The two brindles are very bonded. I can't even imagine what their babies will look like? It appears the father must be this other young male. Not sure but I believe only male in the group, but then I don't know which were found dead.
The only male. Skin and bones. He'll be a handsome guy with some weight and love!
The little scared apricot. She had apparently had puppies, none of which survived. What a love.
When we got ready to go they all went in the corner cage together to make a pile of Pugs...even mistreated Pugs get along!
Don't you just hate the "please don't leave me" look? Broke my heart......

I'm not big into the whole resolution thing, but following in the post of Girlville here are nine things for me....
1. Continue to purge myself of unwanted and unneeded items in my house.
When I change over my closet twice a year, I already donate the stuff that I have not worn, can not wear, will never wear again. I allow myself a couple of dream items...that's it! I want to continue to do this.
In 2008 I discovered "Crafts Bits N Pieces". It is a store run by the Senior Living Counsel in the town I work in. They take lots of different items. Pretty much if you find it in Joannes/Michaels they'll take it there! I have worked in getting my craft area cleared of the projects I no longer have interest in, never liked doing, or just have and don't want. I have streamlined myself to sewing/scrapbooking and painting. That's enough! Some of you were recipients of some of my stuff. Hope you put it to use!!!!
2. Cook more. P is a big steak and potatoes guy. Now that it is the two of us most of the time, I'm trying to get him to try different things and get both of us to eat better!
3. Get back to walking! 2008 was NOT a good walking year for me! I used to walk 4 miles a day. I seriously want to get back to that!
4. Loose weight. I have not been good to myself the past couple of years!
5. Travel to one new city. This should be easy with bloggy meetup!
6. Raise $5000 for Pugs! Continue to spread the word about Pug Rescue!
7. Redo our bedroom! I had to have at least one home improvement on my list!
8. Save money! This could prove interesting with a wedding coming up in the Fall.
9. Get another Pug....heck, a girl can dream, right???
