Welp this is officially my first football season EVER. I wasn't sure what to expect at first and I don't think any of my expectations could have ever been right because boy is this family football crazy! Last week mommy and mamie bought me a football t-shirt that says "Wide Retriever" on the back and I LOVE IT! I'll put my own head, own paws through it and just trot my lil butt around sportin my shirt but that's just the beginning of it!
Sunday was the first ever football day (other than some boring Thursday night stuff that nobody watched) and Sunday was hectic. Uncle Mac was over, big guy never moved from the tv, grandpa was screaming at the tv, even mamie and mommy were watching. It was CRAZY but I was alright with it because I got to wear my t-shirt, and I had people here to play with me!
I really thought Sunday would be the end of it for awhile but NOPER. Our team, the Buffalo Bills played on Monday night...who would've guessed? Once again I got to wear my shirt and trot around here driving everybody nutso as they scream and yell at the tv. I never thought the yelling could be any crazier than Sunday but apparently I was wrong, when it comes to our Buffalo Bills the screaming intensifies by a million...mommy hates it because she doesn't see the point of screaming at people who can't hear you and probably wouldn't care what you have to say even if they could hear you, but nobody can say anything like that to grandpa or he just gets nasty. Our game started out well...we were in New England playing the Patriots and WINNING, until about 2 minutes left in the game that is. Just when I got excited enough to think they'd actually done it, actually pulled off the upset on Monday night and on national tv..boom there's a fumble and a touch down for the Patriots who are now up 25-24. My Bills get the ball back for one last chance...just a field goal, that's all we need for this win...my heart is pounding, I'm watching, I'm waiting, I'm excited...and we do NOTHING at all. The game ends, we've lost 25-24, and this little puggie is a very upset little man. :'-( I hear we have games almost weekly (with the exception of something called a bye week) so I guess they have time to redeem themselves, lets hope they do it, I can't take many more games like that.
Well I'm all tuckered out from my ever so exciting weekend so I'm gonna go nap.

Well I've been neutered and "resting" since Wednesday now, which of course with me means neutered and running wild being a crazy lil man like I usually am, and boy today was NO different. Mommy and mamie kept talking about going to some Peach Festival thingy which meant two things to lil ole' me: 1.) FOOD - peaches are food, and it's a peach festival so there must be food, and 2.) PEOPLE - I LOVE people, and people LOVE festivals so of course I had to assume I'd be getting plenty of love. Just one problem, they weren't planning on taking me. Well boy did I make sure that changed. I ran around, I jumped up and down, I begged to be picked up, I ran to the door before they could, I made myself simply irresistible, and what happened? I went to the peach festival. Mommy loaded me into the car with my bag, and a water dish, and a bottle of water and off we went. The drive took forever because part of the highway was closed so we had to detour through a bad part of Buffalo to another highway entrance, but we finally made it to the festival in about TWICE the time it should have taken us. We parked the car and then we were off. We were stopped so many times by people saying "Oh lemme pet your pug" "Can I pet your puppy please" "Oh how cute is he?" yupper I'm adorable, now lemme go see the stuff and smell the food please. Unfortunately, meeting all of those people was the best part of the festival. Now don't get me wrong, we love meeting new people but I was super pumped about food and yummy goodness and tents to shop in and well that did not happen. There were a few tents here and there with peaches or peach flavored items (mommy bought peach pop, there was peach cobbler etc) but the rest of it was carnival food and ride and games. There were a couple of tents with stuff to buy but again, nothing really grand...all that caught our eyes was the doggy themed tent and of course I got something out of that deal...a peanut butter and jelly bone for the ride home MMMMMMM was that good. After that we were on our way back to the car...we spent more time in the car than at the festival, bummer.
After that mommy and mamie were hungry so they decided we were going to go to an eatery in East Aurora called Charlie's because the food is good AND there's outdoor seating so I could go too! We drove all the way there from Lewiston only to find out Charlie's was closed to the general public for a private party today...GRRRRRRRRRRRRR I was so looking forward to eating lunch with my humans in a restaurant!
Now that we're home mamie is preparing to go out to the casino with big guy and one of their friends tonight, so I get to be home with my mommy! I've a very tuckered out little man though so I think mommy may have it easy as I'll be napping a lot!
Alright, I'm off to bug mamie while I still have a chance!

Today was my big surgery day...the neuter. Bright and early this morning mommy, mamie and I were off to the vet's office. First they took me into the room and a vet I'd never seen before checked me out (don't be alarmed my brother's have seen him before and he has done both of their neuters as well). He checked my eyes, my ears, my throat, my everything, and then just when I thought I was being let free it happened...I was taken into one room where I was placed in a large cage and given some relaxation medicine and mommy and mamie were headed out the front door to go home...I was a well behaved big boy though and didn't make a fuss.
My surgery didn't start immediately, but it did start rather soon after they left and it lasted about 20 minutes. Around noon mamie called to check on me and not only was I out of surgery but I was already awake and starting to sit up on my own! When mommy got out of class she and mamie came to talk to the vet and pick me up and boy oh boy was I excited! The vet informed them that my surgery went well and that he also cleaned my ears, clipped my nails, and checked my eyes (again) while I was under anesthesia. See, during his initial pre-op exam he noticed something funny with my eyes (UGH not again) so while I was sleeping he stained them to make sure my ulceration wasn't back and it's not but there's definitely some inflammation so he said I'm going to have to stay permanently on my eye drops to prevent any ulcerations from happening..GRRRRRRRRRRR I HATE eyedrops.
After all of that happened we were off and running to get home before mommy had to work. Everybody expected me to be a very groggy little guy but guess what...I'm NOT I have been wreaking havoc all over this house since the minute I got home...everyone keeps stopping me from jumping onto things which is making me angry because I love to jump but they tell me that I could hurt myself and make myself bleed so I guess I'll have to listen.
I go back in about 10 days for suture removal but I only have 3 little sutures so that shouldn't be too bad. OH and I didn't even get e-collared!!!! GO ME! The vet tech said that since the office has to charge for the e-collars they try to steer clear of giving them out unless the dog has been a real problem, and I wasn't...I was a good boy! If anybody here starts to notice me chewing or anything then they'll have to call and get me an e-collar (or go to the pet store) but so far so good! Now if I could just figure out what the vet took from me...everybody keeps saying things like "Oh buddy they took 'em from ya huh?", "Oh poor Pucker you've got no nutters", I don't get it, I feel the same as I did before I went in, what's missing?! I guess with time I'll figure it out, or somebody will end up telling me. I hope it's nothing important though!
Alright I'm off to eat, and play, and sleep for awhile!

I only have one more day until my trip to the vet to be neutered and I still don't really know what that means. Mamie keeps telling me "Lick 'em while you got 'em" and Meaty keeps telling me that my neuticles are going where his went and that he doesn't know where they went but that he can't seem to find them anywhere. Mommy promised me I could take Blue to the vet with my Wednesday morning, and said mamie would pick me up when the vet says I am ready because she has to work...which she is unhappy about, but mamie promised me the doggie bed and everything so I think I'll be okay without mommy for a few hours. According to what I've been told this neuter is some kind of surgery too. I'm going to be put to sleep for awhile which is going to make me very drowsy for the remainder of my day and because of the sleepy time medicine they are giving me Wednesday morning I'm not allowed to eat ANYTHING after 6pm tomorrow and I can't drink anything after 12am...boy oh boy is that a long time! I'm not a big fan of the vet so it's possible that I'll be a monster when I first get there but once they calm me down and knock me out mommy thinks I'll be okay, and if I'm not Dr. Clauss will figure me out...good luck with that Dr. C...you well know that I am a huge monster, you better hope that medication keeps me drowsy as long as most puppers! I'm gonna be coming home with sutures which means....another e-collar. AARGGHH...I feel like I just got out of an e-collar and now I have to get a new one. Mommy says if I behave myself we can take it off but the instant I start trying to lick, chew, or scratch my sutures it's going back on. I must say, I myself don't have any confidence in my will-power...if they itch I will get to them, if they feel funny, I will get to them...pretty much what I'm say is, I WILL remain e-collared until my sutures come out because I am a monster. :-X
Well I'm off to go curl up on the couch and watch the Yankees game with grandpa, then maybe a nap til mamie and big guy come home for their party...then it's play time...til I tucker out at least!

Well it has been quite some time since my last entry so I really don't know where to begin, though not too much exciting stuff has been going on around here.
I guess I should start with college. My mommy started something called college on Monday...well I shouldn't say started because she's already been through a couple years of it but then took a break, so I guess I should say: My mommy finally went back to college on Monday. I don't really know what college is, but I guess it's a place where she spends lots of time listening to people yell...err, lecture about topics in hopes that she and other students will pass any tests they are given. I thought this was a short-term thing, but come to find out, my mommy is going to be disappearing to this college place a few hours a day for a couple of years on her way to becoming something called an RN. I grrr you college for stealing my mommy.
I'm going to the vet EARLY Wednesday morning to be neutered. I don't know what that means yet but Meatball and Ozzy keep laughing at me, mommy keeps saying Wednesday night will be my most calm and peaceful ever....I don't like the sounds of that at all. Can anybody tell me what neutered is, or why Meatball and Ozzy find this so funny?
I've adopted a couple of new friends over the past few weeks. One of them is my bath cup...I like to carry it around in my mouth and play with it. A second one is the cap to mommy and mamie's foaming body wash that I carry around everywhere, and my third is a plastic easter egg, I like to break the egg in half and walk around with one half in my mouth like a pacifier. Mommy is shocked...I have all of these fabulous toys, and she's always concerned with getting me a new one if it's cute and now I neglect all of those toys for things I find around the house...what can I say I'm an odd ball.
Well I'm off to play with my egg and my mommy until she leaves for class, then maybe I'll nap until she comes home!

Last time I posted mommy was getting ready to travel to someplace called Toronto from Wednesday until Friday and I was convincing myself that I'd be so busy with mamie and big guy that I'd never even notice she was gone. Well, I really didn't notice too much because GUESS WHAT?! Mommy came home a day early...Thursday night instead of Friday, and what day did I first notice her missing? Thursday so it was more like I missed her for a few hours. See, a really bad batch of severe storms rolled through Toronto (just after she and her friend returned to the hotel from the zoo). These storms brought torrential downpours, high winds, LOTS of lightning, some hail and...not one, not two but THREE tornadoes. The power at the hotel was knocked out, the back up generator was struck by lightning...aka. NO backup generator, and they had no idea when power would be restored. So, after hearing that more severe storms would be rolling in on Friday morning (a morning in which mommy had no choice but to checkout and leave at 11am as that was the last day they booked) mommy and her friend decided that once things cleared up a bit on Thursday night they'd come home. Around 10:30pm mommy pulled back into the driveway safe and sound. She said she drove in quite a bit of rain and lightning but nothing any worse than usual, and luckily by the time she returned to the states the storm had already been (not near as bad) and gone from here!
I've been my usual mischievous self. But yesterday it kind of paid off. See I like to get under foot ALL of the time and mamie forgot about that somehow and managed to step on my back leg making me scream so what did she do? She put me in the car to take me to Taffy's (an outdoor hotdog,burger,milkshake stand) for my very own hot dog! Only problem there? It started to pour so no Taffy's for us...I got to go for a ride in the car, then mommy and mamie brought me home, went to dinner on their own, and then brought ME leftovers! That surely makes up for being stepped on. Maybe I should make sure to be stepped on and then scream more often!
Today is an icky day here. Mamie and big guy went to the fair with grandma and naturally it started to rain...mommy says it serves big guy right cuz last night he told her it wasn't raining at the fair and then she got there and it was pouring and she got soaked...so HEHE big guy pay back is a b*tch! I'm having a lazy day...the kind where I lay around and nap with grandpa on the couch, do some laundry and cleaning with mommy, take another nap, eat and play for a bit, and then nap some more, but I'm kind of enjoying it, it's nice and relaxing.
Alright well I'm off to nap again and then cause some trouble! I need to be well rested for mamie when she gets home so I can torment them all!! HEHEHEHEHE.

I guess I'll just start with yesterday... mommy found a baby bird all by his loneliness in our driveway yesterday afternoon. She ran in the house to grab mamie which of course led to all three of us boys having to run up the stairs and attempt to "sneak" out to take a peek too but we were caught. The poor little guy (who they named Fledge because he was a fledgling) was just sitting in the center of the driveway chirping away...still too young to fly even! Mamie called the vet you referred her to a wild animal rescue in the area called Messinger Woods. The woman at the rescue instructed mamie and mommy to let the bird be for awhile, while keeping an eye on him to see if his mommy or daddy came to retrieve him. Hours and hours passed by...4 or 5 to be exact and no sign of his mommy or his daddy so mamie called the nice woman back and then dropped Fledge off to her house where she diagnosed him as dehydrated but otherwise okay, she assumes that with as long as he was alone his mommy must be dead :'-( Anyways he is in good hands though and will be nursed back to health by the nice people at messinger woods and then released back into the wild. GOOD LUCK FLEDGE!!!
Today my mommy took her first ever trip to the spa! She was gone a very long time but came home very relaxed and with very pretty finger and toe nails! She said she doesn't know if she'd do a full spa trip again but could definitely see herself doing another pedicure in the near future! Tomorrow she leaves for Canada with one of her college friends, I'm not going but rest assured that I am in GREAT hands, I will be staying with mamie and big guy plus Unkie Jay and my grandparents! She's only going to be gone for a couple of days and I'll be very busy following mamie around, chewing on the big boys, and causing tons of trouble so I know the time will fly by and she'll be home before I even realize she was gone. :-D HAVE A GOOD TRIP MOM!!!!
Alright well I'm off to bed with mamie so I can be full of energy to play with mommy before she leaves in the morning!!

Today's vet appointment went very well...I even behaved, for the most part...when I say behaved I mean I didn't bark and growl at every other dog in the waiting room, I usually play bark and play growl and try to pull my way over to them and play but mamie and mommy won't let me...hmmph so today I just didn't bother.
Dr. Clauss came in and looked over my head and said it looks FANTASTIC. He still can't guarantee how much of a scar I'll have versus how much hair will grow back but he does believe that enough of my hair (if not all) will grow back that people won't be able to notice my scar! He said that if it really bothers mamie and mommy he could remove the scar, pull my skin, and suture it but that he doesn't recommend it as it is not medically necessary...mamie and mommy said NO WAY JOSE if the scar stays the scar stays. ALL of the black pigment is back to under my nose, NO more neosporin, and I don't have to follow up with Dr. Clauss once a week anymore as he says "Until the next incident"! I wasn't as fantastic of a boy when they tried to clip my nails, I hate having my nails clipped so I whine and scream and squirm like they're trying to kill me which according to the vet is a PUG thing not just a PUCK thing :-P
While we were at the vet mommy and mamie set up something called a neuter for me. I don't know what that is but I know I have to be to the vet super early that morning, no food after 6 the night before, and no water after midnight. I also know Meaty and Ozzy both laughed at me. PSH on them, I'm a big boy I can take anything they throw at me just fine!
Well I'm a very sleepy boy today...I've been staying up all night mouse hunting plus I had a busy day so I'm gonna go nap!

Well what's new in the world of Sir Puck? I've been a good boy lately! Actually mamie called me the best, fabulous, top dog, and why? Well I woke her up at 2 o'clock this morning barking and growling my full head off...sounds like a bad boy thing right? Well, I didn't stop and mamie noticed I was staring at the ground and quickly became freaked out about the prospect of me possibly seeing a ghost or something so she flipped on the light and guess what she found (well I found but she noticed because of me)! It was a MOUSE! A living, breathing, creepy, disgusting looking mouse that quickly scurried back up the inside of the wall and disappeared. Mamie set traps so hopefully that booger will be caught and removed from MY house for good real soon! GO ME!
Mommy's feeling a bit down in the dumps lately. Her boyfriend is leaving on vacation with his family for 8 days to California so mommy is kind of sad... a little because she fears the plane ride he has, and a little because she's going to miss him. To make matters a little harder she's on vacation from work from this Friday to next Friday. She has her own things planned to keep herself busy but she's still pretty down. I keep trying to be my usual goofy self to help cheer her up but it only works for a little while :-(
I go to the vet on Wednesday so he can check up on my head. It's looking really good! The spot is shrinking more and more which means I am getting more and more hair back... at least that's what mamie and mommy tell me, I'll let everyone know more once I see what Dr. Clauss says about me!
Alright I'm off to hunt mice, beg food, and power nap!

Day by Day I'm getting MUCH better! The black pigment is almost completely back on the spot under my nose, and the remaining scab on my head finally fell off yesterday... now I have NO E-collar and NO icky redness to my skin, just a bald spot that reveals healthy looking skin AND some small hairs that are trying to grow back! I go back to the vet for a re-check Wednesday morning but I should be perfectly fine!
I had a bit of an urpy tum tum this morning...all over mamie's downstairs but that passed as quickly as it came and now I am causing my usual amount of trouble again! I even found my favorite toy... a cap (too large to swallow so no worries) that I stole off mommy and mamie's bodywash in the bathroom and have been running around with it in my mouth non-stop!
Well I'm off to power nap and cause more trouble! I'll post updates from the vet as soon as we have them!
