Illinois pugs, trip part 5

After a wonderful visit, it was time to go home. We took the northern route on the way home so we could meet more friends. Our first stop was the dog park in Springfield, IL. They had a little dog section and it was all ours.

Ellen and Gordon were so nice, making a delicious chicken lasagna and salad. 
Again, mom didn't share. :(
But Gordon sure did! We got lots of veggies from him. 
Pug stamp of approval!

Here is Peyton. He is such a sweetheart. 

This is cutie pie Liberty! Isn't she adorable!

Here's Webster. He loves his daddy!

Darling Zoe. Her dress is so cute! We wanted to steal her wardrobe.

And look at all the goodies they gave us! Treats, toys, rawhides and even some adorable pug things for mom. 

And again, Isabelle pooped in the house. On the carpet. Mom wasn't close enough to try for a catch this time. This, despite immediately going outside once we got there and visiting a dog park an hour earlier. This is becoming a habit!

We've known Ellen from for a few years. We were so excited when she started blogging and even more excited when we got to meet her in person! 
Ellen and Gordon were so nice to invite us into their home and feed us. We hope that we can repay all the hospitality that was shown to us.


  1. Love Zoe's dress, she looks good in anything! I'm glad Gordon shared with you, my Mom can be stingy with food at times too and she says I'm the one that is "food motivated"!

  2. I'm glad you girls had even more fun on the road, and I can't wait to hear all about your next stop. So silly that I haven't met A Day in the Life of Pugs yet since we live so close! So exciting you finally did!

  3. Lawdy, those were pawsome treat bags! Ms. Zoe does have an amazing wardrobe. Those four are adorable. Looks like you had a great time with them. Fun trip for sure.


  4. We were thrilled to have you stop by! Dad always shares with us ... sometimes mama gets mad but this time he only gave veggies. Glad your mama didn't get mad at him for sharing! We hope we get to meet again! Love Zoe, Peyton, Webster & Liberty

  5. you sure got lots a cool stuff
    Benny & Lily

  6. If you are ever traveling straight up 95 we are about an hour west in Frederick Md. We have plenty of room and are pug friendly. You guys could have your own side of the house and our mom is a great cook, there are special made dog treats in the oven right now!
