Pug Belleh

What can I say. It's still too darn hot and humid to do much of anything. Mom really should weed her garden, but it's not gonna happen. Not as long as it's this hot and humid. 
Of course, this is payback for all the complaining we did about all the snow we had this winter. lol I guess we can't win either way.

I'm Melting

Melting, melting... Or I would be, if mom didn't have air conditioning.

It's too hot to lie in the sun,and way too hot and humid to lie down outside. So I am sticking to the sofa in the air conditioned living room. Thank goodness Mom loves me!

Tattle Tale Tuesday

Mom and PlusOne found a free app called Colorfy. They stayed up way too late the other night playing with it. It's addicting. Mom is even ignoring ME to play with this silly app. I think I am going to have sabotage it somehow. Anyone have any ideas on how to do the deed?

Where Are You Going, Mom?

Oh yeah, it's Monday. Mom's off to work. Sigh. Well, at least PlusOne is still here.

Sunday, July 26, 2015

Easy Like Sunday Morning

Yup, that's what we do here on Sunday mornings. Especially when mom and dad are out planting grass seed in the big dead patches of lawn.
Have I said, lately, how happy I am to be a dog? 

Saturday, July 25, 2015


PlusOne gave Lucky and I a bath this week. Why? I have NO IDEA. All I know is he called mom at work, asked her where the shampoo was and gave us baths. Oh, what I wouldn't give to be big and strong enough to throw him in the tub and wash him!

Finally Friday

Mom is taking half the day off and going to see a movie with PlusOne. We're not sure which movie yet (choices are Ant Man, Minions, maybe Terminator). Lucky and I will stay home, as usual, and do who knows what. All we know is that sleeping will be involved. lol

Thursday Three

Here are three healthy things I have been eating lately
Golden Raspberries, right off the bush. Yummy!
Avocado. Mom didn't eat hers from lunch, so I broke open her lunch box and ate it for her. Including the skin! (What can I say, it was going to go to waste otherwise. lol) I did leave the pit in the dog bed. Freaked PlusOne out.

All natural honey pretzel braids (unsalted, of course). Mom forgets I am like a shark and if she is carrying any of these in her hand (by her side) then I come running up alongside her and CHOMP they're gone. lol

Yup, that's me, eating healthy. lol

Almost Wordless Wednesday

 No matter how old he is, mom loves to watch him sleep. lol

Happy Birthday Auntie

Happy Birthday, Auntie. Even though I bark at you, it doesn't mean I don't like you. Quite the opposite, in fact. It's not my fault you can speak cat but you can't speak dog! 

Hope you have a great day!

It Was A Dark & Stormy Night

 And did I say stormy? I mean THUNDERstormy, of course. The lakes region is getting hammered, literally, with hail the size of tennis balls.
The had some NASCAR race and the MINUTE it was over EVACUATED everyone, told them to go home and drive carefully.


Again, thank goodness for air conditioning!

Easy Like Sunday Morning

Mom and I both love air conditioning. Especially when it is really, really muggy.

Mom and Blondie may be going on a road trup to South Berwick, Maine, today to visit a quilt shop. I can tell you who's NOT driving! lol

Friday, July 17, 2015


Mom is still recovering from her Tour Du New England driving extravaganza Tuesday. She's been in bed very early the last two nights. I like that. It's nice to cuddle in bed with her. Even if Lucky joins us until PlusOne comes to bed.

Thursday, July 16, 2015


A friend posted this on mom's FB wall yesterday. Mom thought it was pretty funny. Especially since she and PlusOne spent from 3:15 pm to 11:30 pm in the car (they did have a 2 hour McDonalds break) getting PlusOne's girlfriend and BFF back from the concert in Massachusetts yesterday. It was 100 miles from the concert to home. Mom told the girls she was "the best mother ever" and next year "to find someone else to give them a ride." lol

(Of course all three of them fell sound asleep on the ride home. Thank goodness mom didn't.

Tattle Tale Tuesday

Mom might be doing a bit more driving than she planned on today. PlusOne had told his girlfriend he would pick her up from the concert she was seeing, but she only told him yesterday that it was in Mansfield, Massachusetts. Mom and Dad don't feel comfortable letting PlusOne drive all that way, so Mom and PlusOne will be road tripping together. If she can get coverage for her class. Otherwise, Mom is going to be a grumpy camper.
Actually, I think Mom's going to be grumpy no matter what.

Why are weekends so short? Who's interested in three or four day weekends? All in favor raise a paw.

Okay, that's 6 paws in favor. Anyone else?

Berry Extravaganza

Mom's still not sharing, but that's okay, because I ate a whole bunch of raspberries without her noticing. lol

Saturday, July 11, 2015

Thank Goodness It's The Weekend

It's been that sort of week. Thank goodness it's the weekend, that's all mom can say.

Staple Free

Mom got her staples out yesterday. The first one was easy, same as the second, but the third one felt like they were yanking mom's scalp with it. Mom was happy when they were done. Now she can wash and comb her hair withoug worrying about the staples. Phew!

Thursday, July 9, 2015

Mom Says...-

That these are a great way to start off breakfast. I wouldn't know, as she WON'T let me eat any of them!!!
(There are raspberries, black raspberries, golden raspberries and a few boysenberries.)

Wordy Wednesday

Sleep late, Lucky! Mom wishes she could, but she had to go to work. And since I sleep with her, I had to wake up as well. phooey!

More Planting and Eating

PlusOne and his friends bought mom a blueberry bush a week or so ago. This weekend mom bought two more and planted them over by the black raspberry bush. Saturday a friend came over for berries and brought her own container. lol

Mom doesn't like it when I eat her raspberries. Of course, they taste good going down, but the next morning is a different story. Mom wonders why I never learn. I'm a dog ma, that's why. lol

This Is...

The leave me alone pose, nose stuck in the corner of the bed, eyes tightly closed

But no one every says Lucky is not sociable. I don't want to be help, I'm finicky, chicken or particular. Lucky doesn't want to be held and she's adorable, cute and so sweet. I think we have a double standard. What do you think?

Easy Like Sunday Morning

As long as mom feels the need to stay in bed (and rest her head) then I am going to stay right beside her. After all, we don't want her to get lonely. And we don't want her to get into any more TROUBLE! lol

Saturday, July 4, 2015


PlusOne thought mom needed extra protection for the future. The spray paint is because mom said the hardhat was "boring". 

Mom was worried about taking a shower but it didn't hurt, so she was happy about that (and getting the dried blood out of her hair).

Oh, yeah Happy Fourth of July!

Karate is Safer!

 Mom was working on taking apart the playset when a piece of wood decided it didn't want to go where she wanted it to. It decided to smack her on the head. She had safety goggles on her head and that may be what mashed into her head.

 She decided that she was done and was walking into the house calmly when she saw all the blood streaming down her face. She called PlusOne and Dad. PlusOne FREAKED. (He said her arm was dripping with blood - she was trying to stop it from bleeding so much.)
They went off to Urgent Care to get it looked at.

 The first staple didn't go in well, so this is the staple remover they used to take it out. Dad stayed FAR AWAY from mom.

This is the stapler they used. Ouch!

Funny thing, the nurse asked mom if she felt safe at home (Dad was in the room) and it took mom a moment before she realized they might have thought Dad hit her.
Mom's reply was that she was a third degree black belt and there would be none of that. Then the nurse laughinly asked Dad if he was afraid of mom. As if!

Thursday, July 2, 2015


Mom is not quite sure why she's had so may runaway plants this year. Here are two runaway sunflowers. The bottom sunflower is growing out of dead leaves on the driveway. There is no dirt under there. Mom doesn't understand it at all. PlusOne thinks it's funny that the biggest sunflower is a runaway. As long as he doesn't mow it, Mom doesn't care.

Almost Wordless Wednesday

Yes, that's MY fur/hair. Mom furbinated me. I'm not sure there is anything left of me. lol
