Happy Birthday Rosie!

Shouting out a special birthday to our Rosie.  Turning 11 today!!!

This girl has had that same worried, crabby face since the day we got her!

One of the "originals" as my husband always says.

Happy Barkday Stewie!!!

Our boy Stewie turns 7 today.  I promised our little Miss B that the party will be tomorrow when she is there to celebrate with us!  She does love a Pug party! 

Here's a photo of our guy his foster mom sent us...many miles and miles away.

He is wonderful little guy and now that Marty has passed...the only man of the house.

We love you Stewie!!!!

Holiday Spirit

Where shall we find the Christmas spirit?  I seem to be lacking that "UMPF" to get really going and fear on December 26th I'll be saying...."what just happened"! 

How's everyone else doing?????

Throw back Thursday

Circa 2009 - so well behaved that group!  Rosie, Zoey (front), Marty (back) and Chloe.  Crazy to think two of them are gone now....

My girl and my mom

Saturday marked 16 years of my mom's passing. Ripped away from us by that ugly C word. 16 years of missing. I'd like to say that the tears have stopped, but sadly they have not. The missing....that will never end. On top of that Saturday would have also been our Chloe's 14th birthday. I will forever feel that my mom sent her to me to get over my extreme did. That I am thankful for. Chloe's entry into our lives did change everything after as did my mom's death. Two events. Life changing. Life does go on and I'm okay. I can be sad, I can cry and I can shake a fist at the sky, but I'm okay!!!!

Throw Back Thursday

Have you kissed your germ today?

Years ago the all time favorite toy around here was "Gertie the Germ". Oh, Gertie how they all loved your little germ face TO DEATH!

Unless you live under a rock...a really BIG rock, you know that today is election day. I (and I'm sure most of you) have been avoiding the drama of the election as much as I can on social media. There are a few people that feel the need to post hate and share ridiculous stuff! I finally broke down today with a FB post..... So here's the thing. Three of my grandparents came to the United States as adults. All three became citizens to be able to VOTE. My dad's parents would stay in New York until AFTER they voted each year. I know many of us are not satisfied with the candidates, but honestly VOTE people. There are many, many people throughout the world who do not have that right. Our country is still a good place, not perfect, but good. Start taking accountability, vote: Start paying attention. Stop reading the crap on the internet. It is not all truth. Most of it is bullcrap. Use your brains - stop passing along information that may or may not be correct. We are all entitled to opinions. Leave it at that. Sharing CRAP is CRAP. Get out there and VOTE. Peace out blog buddies!!!

Throwback Thursday

front - l to r - Rosie, Zoey and Chloe with Marty in the back

So crazy to look back and see when we were a four Pug family!  In one year we added Marty and Rose and went from one Pug each for handling to two.  I feel like we never missed a beat back then.  We were always on the go and always having SO MUCH FUN.  These four were so good together and so well behaved...cough cough.  A couple of the newer ones have certainly put the term "well behaved" to the test!

Poor little sick Pug...

Zoey has been under the weather for nearly a month now. She was coughing up a storm, so off to the vet we went.
It seems our girl has pneumonia.  So she was put on two meds and they told us to come back in two weeks for more x-rays. 

Sadly, the cough was lingering so more x-rays and more meds. Little Miss B went along this trip.

The bad news is that the cough actually seems WORSE with only 2 days left of the meds. I'm praying this is not more serious than initially thought. Keep passed crossed for us! Miss Zoey has had her limit of problems over her little furry lifetime!

Oh wow I'm not crazy

it seems that I am actually not crazy! For quite awhile now I have been trying to post to the blog using the app on my iPhone.  I'd get entire posts done and they would vanish. For the past couple of days I'd barely get a post tile in and the app would shut down.  I figured now is a good time to research the app- and I find there is now no app for iPhone? What gives????

So here I am today attempting a post through the Google browser and discovering adding photos is a whole new ball game. No wonder blogging is dying!

How is everyone else handling?????

Two can it be

So hard to fathom that today marks two years of Chloe's passing!  Two entire years without her little woof.  I find myself looking at her photos and still expecting her to be by my feet.  Ahhhh, life.

Love you Babygirl.....your a hard act to follow.

Time flies

There is no doubt that time does indeed fly.  I started blogging in 2005 - nearly 11 years ago!  I'm nostalgic for those beginning days of blogging.  Finding other bloggers with similar interests (PUGS!), making new friends, actually meeting so many of them too.  Some of those friendships have survived the test of time, others you just wonder how they are doing, where life took them.

Yes, indeed Fall always makes me a bit nostalgic.

Time does not stand still.

Green Mountain Pug Social

Last weekend P and I traveled to Vermont for the Green Mountain Pug Social - since Sophie is a GMPR alumni she went along as did Stewie - those two were picture perfect!

Let's help mom knit

This bunch doesn't care what I'm trying to work on.  My lap belongs to them!  It's very surprising that I can get anything done, but I do.  I managed to get a bunch of neck warmers made up to take to GMPR Pug Social.  I still have many available, but have not listed them in my shop as I am 95% sure I'm going to be a vendor at the PRONE event in October.  If you'd like to see what I have in these, send me a message!
