Pictures to PROVE it!

Hey dogs, I'm BACK! I hear there was some controversy surrounding my time at Dr. H's place. I even brought some cat al-jerkies home for mommy so she has to use an inhaler. Mom and dad are trying to keep me calm and quiet but that just is NOT going to happen.

Check out my stichies!
You can take my girly parts away but you will NEVER get a hold of my bone!

An update:

I finally got through to a vet tech and she said Suki is doing great. In fact her words were "she is a HYPER little bugger!"

All is well. But do not doubt that I will have plenty to say this evening when we pick her up from the office.

Thank you again for all of the support! Dog blog people are the best.



Hi everyone, this is Suki's mom - I have hacked into her blogger to give you an update. Thanks so much for the well wishes, thoughts, and concern. Suki's dad dropped her off at the V.E.T. yesterday morning at about 9:00 a.m. and the tech told us to come back after 3:00 tomorrow (today). He was told to call at 4:00 yesterday to get an update, and both Leo and I have been calling ever since. Either no one picks up or the phone is busy - we both called pretty much incessantly from 3:30-7:30 last night, and I started making calls again this morning on my way to work at 8:00.

Of course we realize that no news is good news, but it is also frustrating and a little scary not being able to get a hold of anyone at the office. I will keep trying. I put up with the 8 cats and crazy asthma attacks and driving a half hour to get to this vet office when there are many veterinary offices right on my street. I'm just not sure we will take her back to this place. I'm worried about my baby and no one will pick up the damn phone!

Think lots of positive thoughts for us and hopefully someone will give us some good news soon.

Thanks again,

Spay Day

Tomorrow is my spay day. Wish me luck! Actually, wish my mommy luck dealing with it. She's pretty nervous. I'm not - I like Dr. H and his 129 office cats that give my mommy al-jerkies.

Here is a vintage chunky puppy picture of me for your viewing pleasure!

Run Free, Maggie

There sure are a lot of dogs and people who are going to miss you.

Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving, pups and people. Today I am thankful for mommy, daddy, grammie, grampa, aunti Maui, aunti Jen and Kim and my uncles Trigger and even Jakey. I am also thankful for all my DWB friends, foodables, treats and the fact that my mommy and daddy are finally getting hitched this year. I get to be the ring bear-errr (I'm working on my ROAR!). I hope this does not mean I have to wear a costume.

I am also thankful that Clover's spay surgery went well today. My spay day is next week.

Finally, I am thankful that I finally met this SNOW stuff in person. I LOVE YOU, SNOW! Mommy says I will be seeing a lot more of you this winter. Woo!

My V.E.T. & Other Updates

Good news, pups! Mommy, grammie, and grandpa took me to the V.E.T. over the weekend for my last shots for an ENTIRE YEAR. This makes me very happy. I'm a good girl at Dr. H's place but I'm not crazy about the shots.

I like Dr. H because he's kind of goofy looking with an Einstein 'do and a poofy mustache. The best part about the doc is that he loves pugs and gives me all sorts of hugs and kisses and attention and tells me how cute I am. Dr. H raises pugs and I think he said he is owned by eleven right now (some are puppies).

The doc weighed me and I now tip the scales at a whopping 13.5 ell-bees. He told mommy that I'll top out at 15 or 16 pounds, so I am almost a full grown pug-a-lug now. Mommy is relieved as she was worried she was going to have a 25 pounder on her hands. It seems I will be on the small side. No matter, I can still wrassle with the big doggins like nobody's bidness.
In other news, I busted out of my pink Puppia harness because I am STRONG so grammie had to order me a new one. Daddy was happy to hear that I'll be sporting a non-pink harness soon. Mommy reminded him that he's almost a married man anyhow so it doesn't really matter whether people question his preferences (um, does he prefer other kinds of dogs? Cats? I don't understand this one).

Finally, mommy and I are working feverishly on the Pay it Forward giftables. Mommy isn't the most crafty woman (certainly not like Jemima and Norman Featherstone's motherables!). She crafts like she drives: impatiently. But I can assure Clover, Sherman, Penny, Lola, Ike, and Balboa that I have tested your giftables and they have been approved. You might even find a few little renegade Suki Su hairs on the crafts as a bonus. But um, neither of us are sure when exactly these packages will be ready for mailing so hang tight, buddies!

OH YEAH! And I saw a commercial with some weirdo human posing as Chuck Norris. Do not be alarmed - the real Chuck Norris is a six-legged pink stuffy who lives in my toy basket and he is CERTAINLY not a republican. My Chuck Norris will kick Fake Chuck Norris' butt with six times the roundhouse.

THANK YOU, Jemima!

Today mommy and I received our Pay it Forward giftables from Ms. Jemima Jones and her mom, Rachele. OMD I LOVE THEM! Jemima and Rachele sent us homemade peanut butter and graham cracker TREATS. Mommy even had a little tasty-taste and totally approves (mommy actually has a habit of nibbling my gourmet treats out of curiosity). They also sent orange ASPCA bracelets (mommy's favorite color!), a new pink elephant toy, and a hand knit hat and mitten set for mommy!
I really like this elephant business! It reminds me of Eli (RIP) except it is squeakable and I love squeakies! Yoink!
The treats are DELECTABLE and I would say four jars is about enough to last me four hours. Just kidding! (Mommy made me write "just kidding." Since I can't open jars I suppose I will be subjected to treat rationing).
Of course mommy loves her new hat and mitten set, being a Minnesotan. Rachele, you are SO talented and the hat and mittens are beautiful!
Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Big Girl Birthday Wishes

My gal pal Suki (same name, different pug!) is ONE and lots of us doggies are whooping it up at Disney World in Florida this weekend. Isn't she a pretty girl?
Before I left mom made sure to pack my Mickey stuffy (because I would be lonely without him).
He is a good cuddler and his legs are made of rope. It doesn't get any better than that.Happy birthday, Suki!

What is Snow?

Nana Rita gave me my first winter coat.I'm all ready for the slopes! Just kidding, pugs don't ski.

The Window

Mommy and daddy moved their bed next to a big window (ignore how dirty they are - it's a rental!). This is pretty much the most exciting thing that has ever happened around here.
I like to stare out the window and look for Pedro.

The Halloween Story

Oh my dog, I am so sorry I have not updated in such a long time. We have been too busy with Halloween and mommy's long work hours to share this week. Mommy has been acting like a crazy picture lady though.

This is me, forlorn and hoping my DWB friends will remember me after this long, blogless week.
On Sunday we had Pug-O-Ween. This meant that I had to get up in the morning and endure costume torture. I am still trying to figure out why they dressed me up like a devil.

I would say I put up a good fight. But check out daddy - he seems to be enjoying this in the photographic evidence. Argh!
I hated that tail!
Onward to Pug-O-Ween. I had a twin! As you can see, we were the engine and caboose of the butt sniffin' train.
There were more pugs at this meet-up than I have ever seen in my entire life (probably around 100). Their humans dressed them up as spiders, skeletons, pumpkins, Yoda, Frankenstein, and even Fred & Wilma Flinstone!
I made a new BFF. Her name is Bindi (after Bindi Sue, daughter of the beloved Steve Irwin, whom mommy loves). When I wasn't begging for treats I was wrasslin' with her. She's four months old and about half my size. "What a little beauuuuty!" I realized at this meet-up that for my age I am large - and in charge - but not fat.
And oh yeah... we had a visitor from New York. What a crazy dude!
He may look odd but he gives really good butt scratches. I loved waking him up in the morning with my snotty sneezes and lots of puggy kisses. That dude loves to party!
