New header....

I've been wanting to get some sort of memorial piece done of our group as it was it it's "prime".  Before illness, sadness, and passing of our girl Chloe.  I found Dobby Doodles on facebook and she worked with me to incorporate our love of Pugs and our love of boating and of course the infamous "pugboat".  I love how it turned out!  I'm going to also use it for my etsy shop header and can't wait to have a canvas made along with mugs for camp and t-shirts for my family!  I guess you'd call this a gift to myself that brings a smile to my heart!

Happy Birthday to me....

Another birthday is here. The years seem to be passing with more and more speed.  Wisdom comes with age, right?  When I think about the number of this year I am SHOCKED.  I don't feel a number...but I see some signs that my age is indeed advancing!  A few thoughts for this birthday.
If your taught to treat animals will.

There is NOTHING like open hearted joy (and my grandbaby)!

You will hold memories of your mom in your heart when she can't be here for you to lean on.

Pug friends rock!
Don't kiss and tell!

It is important to share.

Education never hurt anyone.
Birthday hats make the party!
Cake rocks too!

If someone tells you you are a are!

Wonderful Weekend

Life has been pretty stressful lately.  I was lucky to be able to carve out a nice long weekend visiting friends in CT!!!  Some of you "old timers" might remember Wilma, Sluggo and Brigette and their mom who started the Sunflower Girls in blog land.  Sweet Brigette passed last month and her mama and I wanted to have some time to recharge from her loss and mine of Chloe.  I took along a "sunflower" dress for Wilma.  The original Sunflower Girl!!  I might say she looks CRAZY adorable in it!!!
Kathy had also ordered a custom bed from my husband to fit in a spot in her kitchen.  She knew she wanted turquoise.  Wilma gave it her seal of approval.
Even Sluggo decided he liked it too.
We had SO much fun!!!  Love these two and their furbabies!!!!

6 month checkup

This girl tried to scare her mama at her 6 month checkup! The vet was asking how she has been...good I say...any new bumps or lumps....nope....okay let's take a look - WAIT - I feel something right now!  So, off to the back to get it poked, ears cleaned and heartworm test. Stewie and I waited and paced. Phew - just.a weird reaction type lump with no mast cells present!  We will keep an eye on it. Ear infection though. I'll take an eat infection any day over mast cell cancer!
