Snow day

Thank you Rosie for this lovely Lady Bug Award.



It represents the blogs that truly love someone or something. It´s a ladybug and they are know for giving us luck whenever we see one. So now I have to pass this on to other 5 blogs.

We'd like to pass this on to Melisa and Emmit, Coco, All of the pugs over at Pug Posse including foster brother Eddie!, Pearl, and Salinger.

Lastly, like others in the midwest we've gotten hammered with snow. I love it! Checkout my santa face in the end of the video. I have snow all over my face. The noise in the background is a neighbors snow blower. He was nice enough and clear our driveway!

Here is a short video of Bones and George Henry.

Delicacy!

Here is a picture of the most wonderful room in the house!



I try every day to get into that room. 4 boxes full of sweet chocolate.

Guess what I just found out! Mom puts all of the chunky parts in one place! Unfortunately she throws it away when the pail gets full! Can you believe that! Now I am just trying to get into the pail full of the sweet goodness. Heck with the boxes! I've found the mother load! I promise to share!

Failure



Mom has failed. We are keeping George Henry. She just couldn't part with him. He is too cute and too good of a kitty.

Welcome to the family young fella! The hazing will be swift and brutal!

Proof of how much I love snow and this cold weather

Temp outside 10 degrees! Mom got home and I took off outside before she could put me in the harness and leash! She thought I was just going to pee and come back inside. Sucker!

Tail wagging



Thanks for all of the comments and well wishes about our gotcha day. I don't know why but it was a big deal to me.

Does anyone elses dog or pug wag their tail in their sleep? It's funny because when Brutus does it his tail is almost straight. When he "wags" his tail or his butt I should say, when he is awake, his tail stays curly. Either way it's funny to watch.

Happy Tuesday everyone

1 Year Jan 12th!



Happy 1 Year "Gotcha Day" One year ago today I went down to Indy with Amy and mom picked me up to go to my forever home. Mom was a mess.

She bought a small 22 inch dog crate. Put it all together and put it in the car. She tried to put me in it! She quickly realized I am a big boy. So she let me in the car. I laid down on the seat and went to sleep. I was tired.

We finally got home. You didn't let me go to the bathroom so after about 5 mins in the house, I pooped. I had to go! What was I suppose to do?

She told me she was such a novice that she didn't realize she should have walked me or let me do my business before we went inside. Silly mom.

She also told me that she remembers the drive home she could smell that April my foster mom had given me a bath and I smelled good. She also said she could still smell that "dog" smell. I'm a dog and we have a smell. You humans do too. She says she doesn't notice the smell anymore. In fact she thinks I smell good. I don't know what her problem was, I've always smelled good.

That night Mom was all afraid of what I would do in the house because I wasn't crated. She gave me a benadryl to help me sleep. The next day was a sunday. So mom got up and went to get an appropriately sized crate. She took me with her in the car because she was afraid to leave me in the house. This was a win for me because I LOVE the car.

So mom was standing in line to exchange the crate and she got this feeling of panic. She had thoughts of me tearing up the car while she was inside. Remember this movie?



Little did she realize she has just adopted the perfect pug!

So on the way home she called her friend Mark and cried on the phone. "I don't know what I am doing" "I don't know if I can do this" She said she thinks about this now and laughs.

What a great year we've had. Silly mom bought that crate for nothing. After about a month she realized I am a very good boy.

Happy Monday Everyone!

Sleep


Mom is so tired. She got back from Boston and found out I was pretty tired too. Mom procrastinated on a grant and now is paying the price. She hates writing grants. But enough about her.

I am doing great. I had a fantastic time with the grandparents. They spoiled me. We have been enjoying some of the new shows, Nip/Tuck and Damages. If anyone is a Battlestar Gallactica fan this website is funny. It spoofs facebook.

In the meantime I am loving this cold weather. I make mom go on an extra long walk this morning before I went number 2. he he

Everyone wants to adopt GH

Greetings from Boston, it's Mom here. Finally some time on the computer! Reports are that the bru man is doing good along with the rest of the gang.

Lilly is very afraid of George Henry. I figured this would go away over a few weeks when she realized he's not going to hurt her. Well it hasn't. So I have decided to find GH a home. I would love to keep him as he is beautiful and a cutie but Lilly is just staying in my bedroom all the time and I miss her. On a side note I am only adopting GH out after a home visit and/or reference calls.

So I put an ad on craiglist, petfinder, and on the bulletin board at work. Here are some of the emails I've gotten so far.

Good news/bad news



Mom is leaving tomorrow to go see Mark her "friend" in Boston.



I can't imagine why she would want to go there?



I mean you can get good chowder here?

Luckily I charmed Grandma and she and grandpa are both are coming to stay with me or I should say "us" while Moms away. YES

On a side note, Grandma had a quilt made for mom. Mom can NOT sew but loves the new quilt. Of course she doesn't have the quilt here because she is afraid she will mess it up. The quilt is going to be entered in some shows or something. Then it will be retired on a quilt rack on the wall away from us animals!








Hope you are able to at least see it basically. She thinks if you click on the pictures you can see them larger.

So I will be suffering here with the grandparents while she is in Boston.

Happy New Year Indeed!
