Happy Easter

Happy Easter, (or Sunday) everyone. Mom is hoping it is nice and sunny like it was yesterday. It would be nice to have a sunny weekend for a change.

Cleared For Take-Off

Mom took Lucky and I to the VET yesterday. She said it was because we were going to some Fling in Connecticut in April. I think she just wanted to see me get poked and prodded. The Vet, Doctor LovesMeAWholeLot said that if Mom is abusing me, I can go live with him. Mom said "no way". Anyway, the Doctor says I am perfect, perfect, perfect. My heart, eyes, teeth and weight are all perfect. Though at 15.6 lbs, I have lost 2-1/2 pounds in the past year. Doctor LovesMeAWholeLot said that will keep my heart strong and make me live longer, but mom thinks I should GAIN a pound, so she gave me MORE food. How AWESOME is that???

Anyway, Lucky and I are cleared for our Fling. We can't wait to meet all our Pug Blogger Buddies.

Necessary Cuteness

It's the kind of day when cuteness is necessary.

Private Concert

My aunt Annette died Saturday night. Mom found out Sunday morning. PlusOne decided that since Memere wasn't really up to travel for a public recital, he would go over to her house and give her a private concert. Memere enjoyed it very much.

Here is Memere in the quilt Auntie and mom made for Aunt Annette. Aunt Annette loved it. Her husband asked if he could keep it after Annette went to Heaven. Of course mom and Auntie said yes. They knew he would need the love that was sewn into the quilt to keep him company now that his beloved wife has gone to Heaven.

Today is PlusOne's spring cello recital. Mom will tape it, if she remembers to put new batteries in the camera. lol

Dreaming Of Spring

I am dreaming of spring, warm weather and lots and lots of sunshine.

There Is Nothing Better

Than snuggling while wrapped warmly in a blankie! Don't you agree?

Silly Dog

Do I need to say more?

My Aunt

This is my aunt Annette. Here she is reading to me when I was just a youngster.

Here she is with PlusOne when we went to Orlando almost nine years ago.

My aunt is dying. As I write this, she has maybe a day or two more to live. She was a wonderful aunt who was always there for me. She got her PhD in Education in 1966. She taught grade school and in the SUNY Plattsburgh college system. She believed strongly in reading to children and she always sent us special books for our birthday and Christmas. She continued that tradition with my son.

She used to talk about me so much everyone thought I was her illegitimate child. A few weeks ago she asked for a lap robe from my sister and I. My sister already had a top made so I had to sew up a top so it would be two sided. One side would ALWAYS be near my aunt's heart. Here is my sister's side.

And here is my side. 

My aunt loved owls, but I didn't have any owl fabric, so I told her she got butterflies and flowers and all the colors of love in my heart. I will miss her terribly. We talked every three months and always had such fun conversations. We visited her often before she retired to Orlando and we had a very fun visit when we went. My world is going to be sadder without her.

Remember When I Said

Wait a minute, the weather will change????
Well it did, and NOT for the better. Not they are saying 14" of snow possible, as opposed to 5". I am going to bed and I am NOT coming out from under the covers until spring or May, whichever comes first!

Once More

Once more into the breach we go.... I don't know where that came from, but mom thought it sounded cool. What it really means is more snow. PHOOEY! Hopefully, this will be the LAST one for this winter. We can never bet on that, though, because this is New England and if we don't like the weather, we should wait a minute, as it will change.

Happy Saint Patrick's Day

Happy Saint Patrick's Day to all my friends, Irish or not! Hope you all get some corned beef, cabbage and BEER (that is, if you want any of the above). lol

Weather Guessers

Remember all this snow we had? Well, now it's almost ALL gone. Yippie. The weather guessers had said we might have "snow showers" today, but they changed their minds. They do that a lot. Now they are saying we might see some "snow mix" on Tuesday. We hope they change their mind like they did before. It is time for spring and green things. Don't you agree?

Setting A Good Example

Here are Lucky and I trying to set a good example for mom. You see, mom goes to bed too late. She says it's because she wants some quiet time (aka no one is talking to her time) but with a teenager, it's hard to get, so she stays up late to get it and then is tired in the morning. Isn't that silly? I think it is and I'm only a PUG!

Take That!

The  last few days have been warmer, today was especially nice and SUNNY. The snow has been melting and mom saw a whole lot more grass in the backyard. So of course she expects snow soon. But LOOK! There is no snow in the future (seriously, a snow shower? pshaw I say!) I hope this keeps up, but I would say that since mom mentioned it, we're going to have a blizzard next week. You watch!

Tattle Tale Tuesday

Mom bought dog food this weekend. When mom does that, she fills the dog food tin up to the very top. When she goes to feed Lucky, I pounce.

Or rather, stretch.

Thank you for all my birthday wishes yesterday. I had a great day! (It DIDN'T snow!)

My Birthday!

Today is my ninth birthday! Can you believe it? It felt like it was only yesterday that I was the picture of cuteness, sweetness and innocence! Yeah, I know, the last one is hard to believe, but... believe it or not I was once too small to get into trouble. Didn't last long though! lol
Happy Birthday to me!

Easy Like Sunday Morning

PlusOne and mom went to see Warm Bodies very late last night so I know both will be sleeping late this morning. That sounds good to me.~ Lucky

More Snow!!!

We got MORE SNOW yesterday. Sigh. I am hoping that if I ignore it, it will go away. SOON!

Almost There!!!!

Today is the day the Boston 1000 Pugs gallery is supposed to open. Mom can't wait to see our photos! She was so excited she went to the site early just to see if maybe they weren't up already. The password had her stumped. Best Team Ever! Did Amanda mean the Patriots? Or maybe the Bruins, oh, no, how about the Celtics. Gee, what team could be the Best Team Ever? Oh yeah, baseball. The same thing as watching paint dry, lol. Well, at least mom knows the password now.

Look What Dad Found!!!

They're pretty beat, but mom is going to clean them up and then the fun will REALLY begin. Don't worry, mom is NOT going to sharpen them. lol That's all we need, mom cutting PlusOne's arm off while sparring. I know where I WON'T be when they bring these suckers out.

Tattle Tale Tuesday

Lucky is not very fussy when it comes to getting petted. She doesn't care who's lap she's in as long as they pet her. I actually think she has the right idea. Drat! There goes my mystique!

Someone flew in for PlusOne's sixteenth birthday yesterday. PlusOne was excited to see his cousin. His cousin was surprised at how BIG PlusOne has gotten (His cousin has been going cross country for the last 6 or so months.) It was a lot of fun and Memere let me lick her the leftover ice cream off her plate! That was the best part.

PlusOne is SIXTEEN!!!


It seems like only yesterday that PlusOne was born and now he is SIXTEEN! Excuse us while we go hold mom down, I think she's having a panic attack!

Happy Birthday, PlusOne, we love you!!!
