We Got Off Easy

We never lost power, though the lights did flicker once or twice and we had no basement water so mom figures we got off really easy. Apparently we were on the "right" side of the hurricane/tropical storm, which means that we got more wind and less rain.

This photo is from west and north of us. Boy, am I thankful we are not there!

Thanks for all the concern and thoughts. Like I said, we were lucky and I can honestly say I don't mind being lucky this time.

Easy Like Sunday Morning - NOT

There really isn't much we can do today. Watch it rain, hope our roof doesn't get blown off, or Mom's sunflowers get flattened, hope we don't lose power, or have a flooded cellar. Still, we really can't complain. There are people MUCH worse off than we are. We hope they are safe and sound and get their power back on real soon!

Wordy Wednesday

Lucky here, it's Payback Time!

How much closer to the back of the chair do I have to go to squish Roxy like she squished me? Or make her get up and leave the chair all together?

Thursday Thoughts

You know what I think? I think this pug, Otis, is NUTS! Absolutely stark raving BONKERS.

Dora (who belongs to our late friend Fat Eric's mum and dad) sent us this link to the story about Otis and I gotta tell you, I love climbing, but I do NOT think I would like falling. Mom's opinion of skydiving is "why jump out of a perfectly good airplane?"

nyway, go and take a look at this skydiving pug. (And then thank goodness that your parent is not INSANE!!!)

Happy Birthday Lucky!

Lucky is eight years old today. Happy Birthday, my lovable, blond sister!

Today is also the 26th anniversary of the day mom and dad met. Wow! Can you believe it? 26 years. Dad says the first one hundred are the hardest.

What is a
cimmamamamon bun?

It's appears that the tall guy went to the bakery and got himself a cimmamomon bun.
He said I would not like no cimmon bun, so I guess I will not ever get to find out what it is.

But if any of you have ever had a cimmmononon bun, would you please let me know if it is something good?

Then I can have a discussion with a certain someone about getting me a cimmonononomn bun all for myself and if it is good, I will share it with YOU!

Thank you.

New House

We really love our new house. It has a sun room to nap in, hardware to slide on and a backyard to pee in. But there is one small problem. Lincoln doesn't understand this "backyard" potty thing. He understands a "walk."

So he goes outside and suns himself but that's all he wants to do. He doesn't like to use the backyard for his business. He will even wait all day for a walk without any accidents. So Mom asks, how do you train a stinky brother (my addition) to use his new backyard and stop wanting his usual 4 walks a day?

On another note, the good pug child (aka ME) is doing great adjusting to her backyard and new home. Some pugs are just smarter.

Tattle Tale Tuesday

I have decided that if mom doesn't give me green beans tonight, I am going to eat them right off the plant, just like I do the broccoli. This is her last chance. (Of course, she didn't eat any last night, so that's probably why I didn't get any. But just the same, she ought to be sharing with me, don't you think?

Gotcha Day

Today is Lincoln's gotcha day. So here's a letter from Mom to Lincoln.


One year ago today, I got an e-mail from the pug rescue saying they had a male pug they found wandering on the side of a busy road. They had no additional information. I drove a county over to pick you up and when I saw you for the first time my heart broke. You had been chained and you had big sores covering your whole body. You were the skinniest pug I had ever seen and I wasn't entirely convinced you even were a pug you were so dirty. The lady that had kept you until I got there handed you to me on a rope. You smelled quite horrific but I didn't care, I loved you immediately. I kept wondering how I could ever give up this sweet foster baby. You rode in my lap and gave me as many kisses as you could manage. I took you immediately to IncrediPet to get you a harness and you ran straight to the toy aisle and grabbed the ugliest looking purple ferret I had ever seen. I bought it anyway. I almost had to buy a whole rack of Dog Fancy magazines when you gracefully lifted your leg and peed on them in front of the store.

Silly me, I thought you would sleep in a crate that first night. I put you in the crate and turned out the lights intending to go to sleep. You wailed, moaned and howled. Minnie even cried when she heard you. So Minnie and I got you out of your crate and put your still smelly pug body in bed with us and we all cuddled. There was no turning back, you had wiggled your way into everyone's heart. I tried so hard to let you remain a foster but I knew you were meant to live with Minnie and I. When I thought about the troubles you had probably seen and the way you flinched when people bent down to pet you, I worried readjusting you to another family would only hurt you more.

You are my sweet boy and one of my best friends Linky Loo. You had incredible amounts of patience with your sister and provide me with the best companionship possible. I wouldn't trade you for anything.

Loves you,

Thinking Thursday

I am thinking that mom doesn't want me eating dirt mainly because she is not sure that it IS only dirt I am eating, and not something else (hint: outdoor animals that roam into our yard instead of keeping to their own). Perhaps that is why she brushed my teeth so vigorously once we got back inside. Whatever the reason, I think I should try and obey her on this one.... NOT!

Elevator Riding

How to ride in an elevator by Minnie Moo

1) You go to the door
2) Wait for it ding
3) Get on it and wait

4) Wait some more
5) Sometimes you have to share the space with someone else, try not to bark, Mom gets mad
6) When the door dings, wait till the door opens

And that's how you ride an elevator!

The best part is sometimes the bellhop, when you get off the elevator, gives you a dog treat just for being a dog! Why can't we get one of those at home?!

How to make a pug bed in a hotel

The key to a good pug bed when your favorite bed didn't make it in the suitcase because of insane weight limits....
Is to nestle in the hotel pillows...

And put your puggy butt right where Mom will put her face later that night...
