Some nice people sent mom Pugapalooza pictures. Enjoy!

There are treats buried in the paper.

Lots of doggies!

And mom with the flags in her hair

Monday, May 4, 2015


Our 7th annual Pugapalooza was Saturday. Mom is still recovering. It was a good event. We had half the people from last year but raised more money! Go figure. 

This is it for the pictures that mom got. 
Yes, that would be mom with flags in her hair. We are raring to go.
 We had Frosty Paws to eat! 

The quietest time at Pugapalooza. When all the doggies are eating ice cream.

Now that the weather has warmed up and the sun is reliably out, mom's funk is improving. There's some big changes coming our way. We aren't sure what will happen yet, but things are bound to get better, right? 

With any luck (and a lot of hard work), we will probably be moving next year. Not sure where yet. Mom's going through work stuff and school stuff that we hope will resolve soon. For the better. 

In the meantime, she's slowly clearing out the house. We've filled our big recycling bin four weeks in a row! So many papers and junk! Mom's planning a yard sale sometime this summer to get rid of a lot more stuff. When we move, we need to be able to fit into a smaller place. 

So bring on summer! Bring on warm weather to grow some veggies and get the pool warmed up. Bring on more outdoor time and roasted marshmallows. The azaleas are blooming, the grass is growing (too fast) and the mosquitos haven't shown up yet. 

We hope all our blog friends are doing well.

A tribute to Isabelle

A few weeks ago, we received a gift. A lovely, touching gift that made mom burst into tears. It still makes her teary. Some amazing people got together and made a memory quilt for Isabelle. It has mom's favorite photos that were printed on fabric and made into the quilt. 

The animal print were special touches. 

 The wonderful people who gave us the quilt are listed here. 
Some of them we have met online, some in person. But some of them, we have never met at all. 
We are all brought together around the love of pugs.

This is a gift that mom will treasure always. 
To all those wonderful people, we say thank you. It's an inadequate phrase to express what we feel, but thank you.
