Arrival Story:
I flew to Denver on Tuesday June the 29th to pick up my sweet Ming Ming. Our meeting was the result of fate & destiny at it's finest - thus the name Ming Ming (Ming means fate/destiny in Chinese). I had been waiting to adopt a Pug puppy for almost a year when I found my sweet Ming Ming - On the day that my original breeder decided to completely "dog" me out ("dog" - get it? :) When I got the first photo of her I sent it to my best friend Sam and she immediately said, "MING MING!" "She looks like a Ming Ming". The next day I found out that "Ming" means fate/destiny in Chinese. God, I love stories like this! It just proves that some things are meant to be. So here we are, with a disasterous plane ride and a 10 hour ordeal at the Phoenix airport behind us, Ming Ming is finally right where she belongs, at home with us. She's spread nothing but joy along the way and is truly like my second child. She is just a lover - giving kisses & hugs whenever possible & pretty much sleeping the rest of the day away.

Ming Ming is an American Lo-Sze Pugg, and she was born just outside of Denver, in Colorado. The American Lo-Sze Pugg(TM) dog, fondly known as the American Pugg or ALP, can be summed up in one word "comical". Their whimsical smooshy face promptly wiggles into your heart. They are like brightly costumed jesters of royal courts with their antics and indeed, that was their only job some 2,000 years past in the Imperial palaces of China. As small as they are, the American Lo-Sze Pugg (TM) Dog (ALP) have all the love to give that a larger dog does, but they're more compact, as well as easy to lift and transport. Because they are affectionate and lapsize they are hits as therapy dogs. These little guys are often the choice for people in apartments. People who want more than one dog might choose this breed. They also tend to be sociable and tolerant of other pets such as cats and birds. ALP Dogs are winsome little clowns ready at all times to be your families jester and are truly enchanting companions of ancient lineage. Ming Ming is a "fuzzy". ALP's come in fuzzy or short coat all born in the same litter. Fuzzies have the same wonderful temperament,but with a bit longer and softer hair.

The Adventures of Ming Ming

My First Vacation

Mom and Dad took off to Puerto Vallarta for Thanksgiving and I got to go to Auntie Sam's to bond with my cousins Shaggy & Misha. Did I ever have fun! I got to eat good dog food (not that all natural crap that my mom tries to feed me), I learned to walk on a leash and got taken for walks (ok, it was a bit rough at first, but I got the swing of it!), and I got to sleep IN THE BED! Can you believe that? Ever since those 20 peeing on the bed incidences my Mommy doesn't let me sleep with her, but maybe now that I've proven myself on vacation, she'll give in. I had SUCH a great time at Auntie Sammy's but I did miss my parents too. I wish we could all live in one big house so that I didn't have to choose! Oh well.


A year in the life...

It's sad to say that Ming Ming turned 1 in May and this is the first update I've done for her. It's been a crazy ride with my little Mingers. After challenges with her peeing & pooping every where, to chewing up all of my son's toys, to completely destroying all of my outside irrigation and electrical lines - we've emerged a healthy and happy family.
I swear it was the day of her Birthday that she suddenly changed - no longer this out of control puppy that jumped on everyone that came to visit, she now prefers cuddling and laying around the house or playing in her big backyard. A few months ago our neighbors moved in with "MOO!", and what I was sure would be a Ming Ming mauling, turned into the cutest and most loving lil doggy friendship ever! We have a hole under the fence for her to go back and forth and she now has the run of TWO huge yards and the love of "MOO!", in addition to the detest she gets from Harley (our 8 years old, 18lb black pussy!).
Ming Ming is a very sweet & silly girl who tends to leave an impression of everyone she meets. She's little, but mighty, and we wouldn't trade her for the the world!
