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!

No Addisons!

Found out a while ago Miley does not have Addisons. Thanks to all of you for your kind words and well wishes.

We also wanted to thank everyone for their kind words about Koko. My Dad is doing really good about the loss.

I've been bad about posting and commenting. My new goal is to try to post/comment a couple of times a week. I just can't do it every day.

Things here have been pretty good. I am seriously considering adopting Miley. She's been with us since March. I am very attached and I even think Brutus is use to her. I also had a friend tell me she's good for me in that she distracts me from work sometimes. I do have to say that sometimes when I take myself or life too seriously she reminds me that we should all live in the moment. She definitely lives in the moment. I have been holding out hope that a family or couple with another dog would adopt her. No such luck. Maybe there is a bigger plan.

What I struggle with is having all of these animials. I don't know. Also if I adopt her no way can I foster. I am barely making it with 2 dogs.

On a lighter note, the pugs have really enjoyed this cool weather. I have too!
