Back To Work and School

Mom had to go back to work and PlusOne had to go back to school. I am NOT loving today at ALL!

Vacation Is Almost Over

Please don't tell me that. I'm in denial!

Feeling Better

I am feeling much better today, thank you for all your concern. I could say that I learned my lesson, but you know me. I always have to get into something!

The consequences of eating one of these

Is this 

I hardly ate any breakfast yesterday and I didn't eat supper. I didn't even ASK to eat supper. Phooey!

Tattle Tale Tuesday

I am grumpy. Yes, I am. Yesterday, the first day of mom's vacation, work called her at 8:31 am. "What? Are you still in bed?"

Yes, I wanted her to say. "I am STILL in bed cuddling with my (adorable, brilliant, fabulous, wonderful) PUG, RELAXING. That's what VACATIONS are FOR!"

But of course, she didn't say that. And we got out of bed soon after. Sigh. It was a rainy Monday morning, the perfect stay in bed weather!

Do I Have To?

1) Get out of bed.
2) Go out in the rain.
3) Be a good girl?

Easy Like Sunday Morning

Mom and PlusOne are on vacation this week (if work doesn't call mom) and I expect we will have a lot of "Easy" days. I hope. With mom, one can never tell.

Soaking Up The Sun While We Can

It is supposed to rain later tonight and all day tomorrow. Which is fine with me as long as mom doesn't drag me out in it. You know that that will never happen. Sigh,

Just sometimes, it is no fun being a pug. Home made chocolate chip cookies. And they were really good according to PlusOne. Hmmmph!

Not So Hot Tuesday

The temperature was close to 90 degrees F yesterday. The normal temperature this time of year is 57 degrees F. Thankfully, today will be in the mid to high 70's. I am NOT ready for summer yet. Are you?

Back To Work Monsday

It is supposed to be around 85 degrees F today. Everyone is worried about the Boston Marathoners and how they will do with it being so warm. I have to say, I am not too concerned about them. If they want to run 26 miles in this weather, (and up that really LOOOOOOONG hill) more power to them. I am going to enjoy today by soaking up the sun rays from a stationary position. I wouldn't want to fail anyone's expectations of me.

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.

It's Saturday, Mom!

You know, Saturday? The day you take karate in the morning. The day you get to sleep til 8:00 am. The day you don't have to go to work. Remember now? Sheesh, I am going to have to do some serious relaxation work with my mom later today.

Freaky Friday Photos

One of Dad's friends emailed him the following:
"A photographer in California decided to take a few of his furry friends, a ball and a high resolution underwater camera." Here are some of the photos.

Mom thinks the above one would be me, IF I stuck my head in a pool. Which I wouldn't because I DON'T LIKE TO SWIM!

Thought For The Day

I think Mom wishes she were a pug so she could stay home from work and just snooze like Lucky and me.

The VET!

Mom dragged Lucky and me off to the VET on Saturday. It would have been traumatic, except the vet (Dr. L.) loves, loves, loves me. (He said he needed to take me home and observe me for several years. Mom said it wasn't happening!)

Anyway my vet says I am perfect, perfect perfect. I weigh 17.91 pounds (down from 18.4 from last years). Lucky is exactly the same as last year, 12.91 pounds. My eyes, ears, heart, lungs and teeth are all perfect, perfect, perfect. Dr. L. loves me. Mom says he can love me all he wants, but he's only seeing me once a year. lol Still, I didn't like the blood they stole or the shots they gave me. But at least they didn't have to clean out MY anal sacks like the did Lucky. (Who is not nearly as perfect, perfect, perfect as me!)

Pugs In The Kitchen Review


Mom bought Lucky and I some "Pugs In The Kitchen Treats" made by our wonderful blogger buddies in Indy. They actually named one of the treats after me, "Roxy Dragon Pebbles Counter Surfer Cookies" because I am so awesome. And probably because I am famous for getting on the counter. (See look at the photo below!)

Anyway, here is our review of the cookies: YUMMMMMMMY, can we have some MORE!!!

The first ones we tried were the Honey Rosemary Chicken. Well, let's just say we got them on Friday and one pack is all gone, that's how good they were. Next we tried the Peanut Butter Pumpkin. That's what we are eating in the above video (and in case you didn't notice, Lucky nearly chomped mom's finger off grabbing the treat!)

Mom thinks the look on my face while I am waiting for the treat says it all.They are deliciously yummy, made with love, and if you want to buy treats that are All Natural and good for your furbabies, then you should support fellow bloggers and pug lovers who are the power behind Pugs In The Kitchen!

Progress Check

Today is mom and PlusOne's "Step Exam" in karate. Otherwise known as a "Progress Check" (yeah right, PlusOne says). If all goes well, mom will be one more step closer to going for Third Degree in August. Go Mom & PlusOne!

That Smells Good

Don't you think you should share?

When Did That Happen

Mom saw these two photos side by side and sort of freaked. Her "boy" is taller than she is, and in high school. Soon he'll be going to college. YIKES!

Decisions, Decisions

Mom and Dad want a new TV. Their TV is 11 years old. The other day the screen was pink and green and purple in concentric circles. Mom and Dad think it's time for a new TV. But they don't know what size to get.

Here is the current TV.

Here is a mock up mom made to see what their options looked like. The Black line on the left side is the difference between a 40" TV and a 46" TV. PlusOne wants a 46". Mom and Dad think he may be right. I don't care, as long as I have a lap to sleep on while they are watching TV.

It's Important

for people to know who's the boss. Don't you think?
