The Pugs Who Came Before

Today, on Facebook, a bunch of pug bloggers and pug lovers, are honoring their pugs who have gone to the Bridge. Mom and Dad adopted Muffie and Bridget in 1993. Their owner, an elderly lady, had died and the animal control officer swooped in to find a good home for them. She really did not want to separate them, as they were five years old and had been together since they were puppies.

This is Bridget. She was mom's cuddle bunny and always sat with her head on mom's right hip.

Here she is with PlusOne. Bridget thought he was HER puppy, and she protected him very well.

This is Muffie sleeping on top of Bridget. They always had to touch when they were sleeping.

This is Muffie. She was more energetic, but very nosy, according to the neighbor and the vet. lol/


Bridget was 15-1/2 when she went to the Bridge. Muffie was 16-1/2 when she joined her. Mom got Lucky four months after Bridget passed and me just five months later. Lucky and I kept Muffie company until she went to join her sister. They were good dogs, mom said. They did not get into as much trouble as I do,  but Bridget was often called "Unrepentant Dog" for getting into the garbage can, spreading garbage all over the kitchen floor and ignoring mom when she yelled at her. She sounds like my kind of pug.

Oh they sound like great buds! And how wonderful of your Mum to take in two adult pugs! We love stories like that!

Aww, sounds nice of you and Lucky to keep Muffie company. I'm sure she was missing her sister a lot, even though you guys were there, and that's why she went to join Bridget. Remembering those who left us is a nice thing to do. I had a mutt dog who went to the bridge many years ago. I still think about her though and treasure the pictures I have of her.

That is a great tribute to Bridget & Muffie. Mama was on Facebook yesterday morning and saw all the tributes to furkids that have passed and she said no more tears -it was going to be a great day and put her laptop away. And she stayed off Facebook ALL day!
