Arrival Story: Ming was adopted from the Oakland Animal shelter on 10/12/06, at the age of 4 1/2. He was surrended to the shelter with his mate Mia. Ming was used for breeding. Mia was adopted also. We brought Minnie to meet Ming and it was love at first sight. For all of us.
Bio: Ming is a purebred Pug. He has a very special trait.....his tongue hangs out. Very cute. He also did not have his eyes taken care of by his original owner, but now we have his vision problems under control with medication.
It's been a while since I posted in my diary. This year has been quite a year for little old me. In October, I was just about to celebrate my second year in my forever home, when I decided to get sick. Mommy and Daddy said I had a bladder stone blockage. I couldn't pee! I am a really good pee-er and this was just not right. I tried and I tried and nothing would come out. Mom and Dad rushed me to the emergency hospital and I had to stay there for 4 days. I had surgery and my little body sure did hurt. I was real happy to get home. Then after all the test results, it turn out I have a problem with my liver. They think I have a shunt in my liver. They said this means some blood does not pass through my liver to purify it. Mom and Dad were real worried. The Dr said that they could not operate and I should eat a special food called L/D. I like it, but so does Minnie. She tries to eat
it when I am not looking. BOL. She can have it though, I would rather have Pupperoni (which is off limits).
Mom says 2009 will be a much better year for me. I will stay healthy and I am having my 7th birthday on January 27. Stay tuned for some birthday pictures.
We have a fenced yard, and Minnie and me love to go out and sniff everything. I especially like to sniff minnies butt. Ha ha. I'm a pug, ya know.
Well my sister Minnie chases rabbits in the yard, so mom has to go out before us and chase the rabbits away. Now, yesterday, Dad told mom he saw a snake in the yard. He tried to get it out but it went under our deck. Mom is freakin out. She says that now she has to worry about us finding a snake and she gets really creeped out walking in the yard to chase the rabbits. She told daddy, what if that snake goes up my pant leg. Yikes! Mom has some imagination.
Any way, I told mom that I will take care of that snake if I see it. I could always pee on it. Yeah! That's it, what snake likes Pug Pee!
I tell ya, it's crazy around here! Ever since my sister Minnie started complaining about loosing things, the folks got this bright idea to wrap me in something they call a Belly Band. It goes around my belly, but I don't think thats what it's there for. It covers my little weenie. Why don't they call it a weenie band???? I don't mind it too much, it's not so uncomfortable, but when I do my manly marking, I feel very wet. Is that how this thing is supposed to work? I think I heard them saying that I won't like getting wet and I will stop marking. I sure hope they are right, cause I like the feel of the cool breezes.
