Peee ewww

So mom was at the dinning room table doing her college payroll homework and I, as usually, was sitting at her feet.  All of a sudden, mom gets up holding her nose and runs out of the room muttering my name.   Boy, can I clear a room - it was just a little fartie, one would think I crop-dusted the whole house with the look I got.   Have a great weekend - hope you don't have to sleep in the dog-house tonight.

Holiday Pug Pawty


We went to our Seattle Pug Holiday Pawty on Saturday.   We saw lots of puggy furends.   We even won a raffle basket.  Black Pearl kept shaking her holiday Tree hat off - and mom had to hook Otis's Antler holiday hat around his neck and under his halter.  The Seattle Metro area has a serious Parvo Virus outbreak so not alot of puggy furends came.  But those of us who do go sure had a ton-of-fun!   Our next pawty is in February, our annual Valentine pawty - can't wait!

Humphrey Pug Cartoon


Mom's been slackin lately.   Sorry for our absence.   Mom's been real busy working on a couple big projects for her Payroll Tax class she is taking online.  Her thumbs have been workin, but not on OUR blog!!

When she takes a break from taxes, she goes onto Facebook (instead of our blog) and she found this super adorable site called Humphrey Pug Cartoon  - Humphrey is a twice weekly comic strip by Mark Wood about a lovable little pug.   Here's his latest cartoon.  Mark puts out a cartoon each Sunday and Wednesday.  Mom "liked" his facebook page and now she gets his newest cartoons as soon as he posts it.   Hope you can find his page and become a fan too!

Pug-O-Ween Seattle Style


Pug O Ween was on Saturday, October 27, 2012.  We saw a LOT of pugs!  We sure had fun!  Black Pearl was wearing her girly Skull-N-Crossbones sweater and Otis was wearing his Washington Huskies Jersey. 

I think this is a picture (glimps) of our furiend Winston Wilburs !  Only we didn't know he was there.   We're pretty shy at pawrtys, we stay very close to mom.   Sorry Winston Wilbur for not saying HI :(  We'll be sure to look for you at the next Seattle Pug Rescue pawrty!

Happy 21st Birthday

Here I am on June 5, 2010, the day I found my forever home.  My Brian picked me out, actually - I picked him out cos I kept jumping over wall of the fenced area I was in and kept running over to him.  Finally, Brian asked if he could take me for a walk so the Seattle Pug Rescue people put a halter on me and gave Brian a leash.  Brian didn't let go of leash until I got home.

Here I am with my Brian shortly after I got to my forever home.

Fast forward to today, October 28, 2012.  Today is Brian's 21st Birthday.   Happy Birthday Brian, thanks for bringing me HOME !!

Yummy Popcycle

It's all yummy yummy until SOMEONE decides HE wants the popcycle stick ALL to HIMSELF!   Love those Cherry DQ Dillybars!   Shared the last little bit with the kids until Otis went postal on Black Pearl.   Wow, he's soooo m e l l o w, mom was quite shocked.    Black Pearl is usually the aggressor, infact, she's a hoarder, has to HAVE all the toys and if another doggy is playing with one, she'll wait until the doggy looks away or turns away and then she'll swoop in and take the toy.  I guess we all have our THATS MINE tude.

Finally, Seattle Rain

What to do on a rainy day?  We know - take a nap!   Our 80 days of little-to-no rain has come to an end.  Very unusual for Seattle, but we liked it.  That also means the back door is closed and we have to remember not to run into the glass slider when we want to go outside.  Mom had to finally turn on the house heat too.   So I guess we'll just have to hunker down, find our favorite napping spot cos its gonna be a long, wet rest of fall and winter.

Yesterday Was A Very Special Day

Black Pearl reporting today:  Yesterday was a very special day!  Yesterday was mommy #1's birthday.  Mommy #2 helped me make a birthday note for her.   Mommy #1 got me as a pup, took wonderful care of my for almost 5 years.   Then she had a baby girl, Sammy.   I got real jealeous, began sitting on baby Sammy, pushing baby Sammy, and other naughty actions toward baby Sammy.   I really didn't mean too get pushy, but Mommy #1 was MY MOMMY first.   Then mommy #2 offered to take me in as her babies were all growed up, like 18 and 19 yearls old, can't push them around even if I tried.  Plus Otis needed a sister, somepug to show him how to play and somepug to cuddle with.   Mommy #1, baby Sammy, and Daddy Geoff then had to move to Colorado.   Mommy #1 and Mommy #2 have kept in touch via facebook  -  Mommy #2 posts lots of pictures of me and Otis so Mommy #1 can see our adventures.   I still love Mommy #1  -  I sure her birthday yesterday was very special.   Someday if Mommy #1 should come from Colorado to Seattle or if we every go to Colorado, I'd sure like to see Mommy #1, baby Sammy, and daddy Geoff.

Punkin Leaves

Look how big dad's punkin leave are getting.   He has 5 punkins growing.   Still green though, should start turning orange soon (?).   He followed the directions to a T - plant 100 days before harvest.  Because EVERYONE else has orange punkins, he thinks he planted them too late.   Next year he's gonna start sooner.  One punkin is the size of a bowling ball, two about the size of a large cantalope, two about the size of a softball.  We can almost smell those pies baking . . . yummm . . . .  Who wants a piece of punkin pie?

Good Bye Trudie

This is a picture of Trudie.  Trudie went to the Rainbow Bridge yesterday.  Trudie was only 6 years old.  She leaves behind a brother Sam and a sister Stella Rose, along with two broken humans.  Well wishes and kind words can be left on Stella Rose's blog at http://stellroselong.blogspot.com/.  
We didn't know Trudie very long, just a few months.  Trudie, Sam, and Stella Rose sent Black Pearl a Halloween Get-Well-Card when Pearly was sick with kennel cough.  We will cherish the card for ever.

Breath freely Trudie, may God's peace and comfort be with your loved ones you are now watching over from above.

A Pug Poem

A Pug Morning
I woke up this morning
and what did I see?
A wrinkled up Pug face
...Just staring at me!
She had big black eyes
And a short little nose.
Soft velvet ears
folded up like a rose.
Just inches away
She gave a big wheeze,
Sucked in some air,
Let out a giant sneeze!
A joy? A pleasure? A thrill?
It IS not!
To be waked in the morning
By a spray of Pug snot!
~Author Unknown

Mom found this poem on Facebook posted on Timmy The Pampared Pug site.  Check out his site - very adorable pug pictures and stuff!

What's Up?

So, mom, what's up?  You've forgotten to tell the whole world about our adventures - you feelin OK?
Yeah, mom, you even skipped Bible Study last night - hmmmm.

Mom's been a bit forgetfull the last few nights, I guess trying to get people paid is a lot of work.  Pay day is coming and now that all the Principal's teacher's, teacher's assistance, lunchroom people, custodians and all the humans it takes to support schools are now all back to work, they expect to be paid on October 1st.  Ok, Ok, we'll give you some slack - but you'd better get your poop-in-a-group shape up mom!!!

Last Few Days of Summer

Well, the last few days of summer are here.  Today it was about 76 degrees outside.  Maybe Wednesday and Thursday it might get up to 80 but then cool down to low 70's.  Mom keeps the back door open so we can use the screen doggy door but we get the feelin that may come to an end soon.   That means that Otis will need to get mom or dad's attention when he needs to go outside.  He usually runs to the back door, runs out to the living room and runs around - mom begins to panic cause he's wandering - then its get him outside quick - no potty in the house!  Black Pearl usually goes to the back door and stares at the door and then stands there and stares back at dad in his recliner - gives him the stink eye :)    What's your sign that you need to go outside?

Rolly Treat

Oh look, a yummy treat, thanks mom.

Can I have your treat?     NO!   You already ate your treat from mom.

Black Pearl devours her treat, any treat in about 2 minutes.   Otis likes to enjoy his treats.   Any treat he gets it usually take him awhile to eat.   These Smart N' Tasty Canine Dental treats (from Mr. Chewey)  take him a good 1/2 hour to eat.   Otis chokes easly on hard treats so mom has to watch him carefully, he usually only gets soft treats so hard treats are extra special to him.

Whats your favorite treat? (anything except frozen water right Stellarose)

One Sick Puggie and One Not-So-Much

Ohhh, I don't feel too well.   I gots me an eye infection and a terrible sounding cough.   Mom took me to the doggie doctor last night - I got me a shot in the shoulder, got violated when the nurse lady HAD to get a poo sample, got drops to make my eyes turn green and then made me look into this bright light . . . oh the horrors.   I coughed all night long, a deep raspy kind of cough.   Mom brought home some pills for me to take and has to drop stuff in my left eye - all this for the next two weeks.

Here's a sample of what I sound like what mom calls it a barking seal kind-of bark.   Doesn't keep me from playing - at least for a little bit.


Otis is feeling just fine.   He even gets to / wants to go outside and play.   Me, Black Pearl, I just want to do "my business" and go back and cuddle with mom.

Labor Day was yesterday and it started out on a high note.  First off, mom and dad were home - both got to take a holiday from work - sounds nice.   Secondly, do you see whats gonna be added to our breakfast?   Not JUST eggs but also BACON.   We've never had bacon added to our food.   Oh, it was sooo yummy.   Even this morning there was two extra pieces that didn't get eaten so we got BACON AGAIN.  
We LOVE you mom and dad !!!
