Arrival Story:
When the Pens were in the playoffs in 2008, I thought one of the players had a cool name for a dog (I was planning an a little black and white girl Shih Tzu). Once we realized Priscilla needed a younger playmate, we sorta ruled out the Shih Tzu and started looking for a black female pug, after several disappointments with different rescues - we were just going to consider a puppy from a breeder. Friday at work, I received two emails from my friend who no longer runs a rescue, but knew were looking. The first was was from another rescue, saved from a puppmill, the second was Riley - yes he is a boy and so is Nicco - Patti and her powers of persation. LOL!!! Chris and I instantly fell in love with Riley from his picture -then we learned his name and knew it had to be Rutuu, we have a neice named Riley. I did meet the other pug and although she was aborable too - Rutuu stole our hearts from the start.

Ruutu just stole our hearts and fit right in. He and Prissi became fast friends and he gets along well with Nicco and Spike. He listens well, except at bedtime, he refuses to sleep on the floor and is a bed hog. He loves his crate, especilly his little black one he rides in the car in, he will try to get in anything that resembles it, including some of my purses (think I should take the hint and use smaller purses?).

My 8Th Birthday

WOW! What a busy day I had for my birthday!!

Started out having to refuse outside until I was wished a Happy Birthday by the 'rents.

Then the 'rents were off to ready to go some wheres. I was so excited when the big guy put my Crosby shirt on was so cold yesterday......I gots my Pens bandana on too and finally my fave harness, I knew I was going too!

Was not so happy at first, we were at the Tractor Supply Store and there were rescue pugs there, I could not believe I was working on my birthday.

It was kinda cool, I was an ambassador yesterday and not my usual seurity detial. But still there was no foods being passed my way, I had a grumpy look on my face.

Finally there were some treats and apples and peanut butter. As it started to get late Momma was shaking and Daddy left, I after him, but Momma said he would be right back, he went to grab her some lunch.

Oh YUM! have you ever had Logn John Silver's fries? Oh they are just the best! I can not believe Momma does not eat them. I was even a gentleman, I shared with all of the other puggies there.

Back in the car and a stop at Petsmart for me to pick out some treats and new toys. I even helped pick out a new crate for Jewels.

I have to tell you, Jewels likes her new crate so much she was even kissing on the big guy. Yeah, that lasted until this morning when he set off the smoke detector and she bit his tigh. Yes, I have a really awesome daddy, she still lives here.

Thanks for the rosies and birthday wishes. Momma will send some rosies back soon (she forgets about Dogster until she gets emails)

So the momma, her gets on these health kicks and makes smoothies in the morning to take to work, instead of using the whole banana, she shares a nibble with each of us furs. Delish......yummmy, yummy, yummmmmmy!

Today she makes us go outside for our banana treats.... WHAT?????

That crazy woman put my banana yummies in a block of ice!!!!! WHY??? WHAT????

Prissi was not happy either.....she wanted to take hers back in the house.

I had to work for it, but it was worth it and well, I had Jewels' too!


A New Years Eve Poem

Twas the night before New Years Day and not a bully was stirring, not even a pug, exhausted from their big day out.

Momma's uniforms hanging on the rod to dry, because she works every New Year Day and she only has two. The big evil meanies.

The Big Guy's hearty laughter at the Lone Ranger wakes me from my slumber to a smell that is oddly familiar, and not, I am hoping Momma does not think it was me in the house.

Our bellies are full, I am hoping we soon eat again and then slumber on our new Christmas blankies until the morning light.

At midnight the bubbly will flow and all will exclaim HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!
