A new dog for us!

Finally, we found a dog! And ... He is a pug mix. According to the
paperwork, he is part Brussels Griffon, another favorite breed of
mine. So he looks kinda like a Benji version of a pug....

I will post more later, but I just had to share my news. Maybe I can
post a photo soon, too. I will definitely post some to the facebook

Welcome Tanner!

A Pug Sighting on Jersey Shore

In a rare moment, I find myself relaxing with none of the usual tasks hanging over my head. Instead of doing something useful, I'm watching Jersey Shore, and what do you know? I happened to see one of the guys wearing a "Pugs Not Drugs" T-shirt. I was curious about it, and where to find it, so I checked Amazon and Zazzle. Scroll down to see some pictures.


Zazzle (more than just T-Shirts - Here are some of my favorites that I found:

Missing My Pug

Well, as I mentioned in a previous post, I had to find a new home for my buddy, Milo. This weekend, I finally found him a suitable home. The process was frustrating because I figured if all else failed, my state's pug rescue would take him. I thought that if the few options I had didn't work out, I could surrender him. It wasn't so easy.

It was tough to fill out the Surrender form, but I did it (with a few tears). A few days later, the rescue organization called me. They didn't sound like they were interested in taking him, and considered my situation to be not critical. I agreed that it wasn't critical, but it was legitimate. Keeping the baby and dog separate was becoming harder and harder every day. It got to the point where every time I went into the kitchen, there was this comical juggling act involving me, a baby gate, a dog and a toddler. It was destroying our household. They finally said that even though they have 90 pugs in their 40 foster homes, he was number 6 on the waiting list. I was to call them back if they didn't get back to me in 2 weeks.

Well, 4 weeks went by before I called them back. I didn't get a return call. So, I called another rescue for small dogs that is in the town where I work. They said they couldn't help me at the moment, but gave me a lead of someone who might want to take Milo. I didn't connect with this person, unfortunately, so I was back to square one.

The other day, my sister-in-law said she'd ask around at work, and she called me the next day with someone who was interested. I met this lady the following day, and my Milo went home with her. She's so nice and so excited to take care of him. She shared my joy of dressing him up in cute clothes and wanted to sleep with him. That was a huge plus for me, because he used to sleep with me, but I couldn't take his snorting, licking, snoring, choking and general noises all night. So, he was banished from the bedroom some time ago. I know... mean. But, at some point, I need sleep. I'm glad he now has a home with someone who will sleep with him, because I always felt bad about that.

So, he's gone. The house is very quiet. Nobody was there to eat the baby leavings at each meal. Nobody was there to greet me when I came through the door. I had no reason to go outside late at night when shutting the house down. I had no reason to go outside this morning when I got up. So, for today, I stayed inside until about 6 pm. It's quiet now, and it's weird. We haven't been without a dog for 12 years. I suppose I'll get used to is, but it didn't help that all day, my toddler was asking about "Mi-mo" every hour. Ugh.

Despite this, my love of pugs will continue. I will continue working on this site and maybe one day, I'll get another pug. One day when I have no little kids...
