Happy New Year

Happy New Year Everyone!

I am sorry I haven't been posting. Sometimes I just don't know what to say. I'm not the greatest at coming up with witty comments. I think my goal is to post 2-3 times a week.

I hope you all have a great 2010. I love hearing about you, your family and your pets. Adopting Brutus led me to knowing all of you and becoming friends with you here in blogger land as well as facebook, which has brought me great joy and laughter.

Happy New Year, Love, Stacy

Holiday parties and decorations

Sorry I've not been posting on everyones blogs. I've been reading but .........

I had our Athletic Training Club party here last week and also found out a pretty close friend has terminal cancer. I get very stressed out when I have people visit the house. So I had to make sure everything was clean. I get paranoid about having all of these animals and making sure the house ....anyway.

Brutus and Miley loved the visitors. Miley was very timid and worn out for about a day after. It was so funny. Everyone was out of the house by about 10:30pm. So I was cleaning up and couldn't find her. I went into my bedroom and she was in her crate. She was so tired. I don't think she's ever been around that many people.

Here is a group picture. Notice Brutus in the bottom left. We tried to get Miley but she was just too freaked out to stay still.

Here is Brutus during the party

I decorated a few weeks ago and here are some pictures of the kittehs getting into the holiday spirit.

Dog Park

Below are some videos of us at the Dog Park. Mom took us a few weeks ago during a very nice fall day. We had a great time. At first it was just us, then about 5 larger dogs showed up (not at the same time). Miley was a little hesitant but I was very social. Some very bigger dogs were there and she looked like a little puppy. She even got trampled. Don't worry she was fine.


Don't worry I was just playing with Mom....I knew where she was.

Mom has been watching little Flannery on facebook. You can read more about him here at the Curly Tail Pug Rescue

In short there was a puppy mill rescue pregnant pug named Clementine. She lost all of her pups but one, Flannery. On a side note, I got Mom to go to bed tonight at 9:00pm. ha ha

Brutus here. All of the sudden for the past two weeks Mom has been staying up really really late. Anyone else having this problem? Solutions are welcomed. It's very annoying. I need my rest.

**Note from Stacy, since the time change, Brutus and Miley are both ready to go to bed at about 8pm. Anyone else having this issue? Brutus in particular gives me some very stern looks.

Drawing of Brutus

Stacy here. First off sorry we've been MIA. My Mom and Dad visited this weekend and I had spent the week getting ready for that and some other work stuff.

I thought the drawing that Kelly had done of Sophie and her beloved former pug Oliver was too cute.

So I contacted Lili over at Doggie Drawings and had Brutus drawn. I thought a while about what I should have her draw. Finally I went with Brutus' favorite two activities, sleeping and eating. He also does love to play especially with is blue and brown teddy Rupert. The drawing was inspired by the pictures of him sleeping below. I love it!

Happy Monday everyone!

New Shampoo and better google reader

Brutus here. Apparently I've made Mom pretty mad. She's been giving me a bath once a week for over a month! YUK.

I have greasy hair and dandriff. So lately I've been getting scabs that fall off and leave patches of no hair in my coat. Moms been watching money so she's been giving me the baths instead of getting me groomed.

She's been shampooing me with regular stuff from PetSmart. Nothing special just regular old shampoo. She decided last week to get this shampoo. Keratolux. Mom did some research and apparently I need some medicated shampoo. She is also adding a little bit of Omega 3 Fatty acids to my diet.

I think I smell fine but she says since she's been bathing me since the past month I get more smelly at the end of the week. Whatever!

On a side note, those of you who use google reader, if you download Better google reader, you can make comments on individuals blogs and see their blogs as a webpage inside google reader!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Another Epic Fail (as a foster parent)

It's a girl! After much thought and prayer, I've decided to adopt Miley!

I'm too attached and enjoy her too much. She fits in with the others and provides Brutus with some exercise and stimulation that he probably wouldn't get if not for her.

She's been here almost 7 months and she's only stayed in one place in her short life (2 years old) for 8months at a time. Too many people have given up on her. She is a wonderful little dog.

I'm excited but nervous about the responsibility of another dog. Althought, as a friend said the other day, "you've already adopted Miley."

We hope everyone has a great weekend! Can't wait to see all of the pics from Pugtoberfest!
