Special Sunflower Sisters Spotlight~ Sequoia and Petunia

We interrupt Wilma's Wednesday Words of Wisdom to bring you a very special post. I am very excited to present to you our second edition of the Special Sunflower Sister Spotlight.
This time around, we decided to honor Sequoia and Petunia.
They are moving across the whole country, and we would like to help them feel special during this time of transition

Before they left, I made secret arrangements to receive pictures and updates from the road. The Girls have been high-jacking their parents computer while they were sleeping to send word of their cross country adventure. 

Here they are at the start of their big move. 

First stop Indiana
Tuni and Sequoia were met at the Indy 500 by Salinger, Hank and Molly for some laps around the track

After a few laps everyone was feelin' the heat and decided to go over to the bar for some PBR

After sleeping off the brews, it was time to hit the road. This time they were headed toward Illinois Where everyone would be in for a big surprise.

Illinois is where. Josie's man Stubby  and Sequoia's sweetheart Anakin live. So they all planned to meet for some 4th of July fireworks in Chicago. Low and behold, when they got there Petunia's boyfriend Winston was there to meet them, all the way from Canada! He was so excited that his girl was coming to live near him, he decided to travel all that way to surprise her. Not only that, but unbeknown  to her, Josie arranged for Izzy to be surprised with a visit from her long lost sister Lizzy!
Needless to say, fireworks were flying all around that night.

Petunia and Winston were off getting popcorn for everyone when this picture was taken [read fotoflexer decided to stop working at this point in the project]

Next stop Kansas, hopefully for some bar b que!

The Slimmer Pugs  met up with Tuni and Sequoia at, get this, an 8 story tall Sunflower Club meeting headquarters!

They had an impromptu Sunflower meeting right there.
They all decided to let the boys stay. After all, they did the driving and provided crowd control.

Look out Melissa and Emmett, here we come!!

When they got to Colorado to meet up with Emmett they all decided it would be fun to get wild and do some white water rafting.

They had a blast with Emmett but it was time to go to
 sexy Nevada to meet Daisy.

They met Daisy at the Starbucks at the casino.
Everybody got lucky. 

Close to reaching their destination, they swung up through California to do some surfing with Bellatrix

When Tuni saw the size of the waves, she decided to do the smart thing and read on the beach while those young girls decided to risk life and paw.

Get ready  Tweedles
Tuni and Sequoia are on their way to visit before they reach their final destination.

That's all I have so far folks. Soon, our Sunflower sisters will be spreading the love all over Washington.
I hope they have as much fun there as they did getting there!


  1. OMG, I love this post! So creative and fun! I think my favorite is the white water rafting pic. Brilliant!

    Stay cool, all you puglets out there!

    Hank buddy,
    I definitely gotta party with you.You look like you were having a blast. Hi to Molly too!

    Hi Jen and "Lefty"
    I'm so glad your Momma is OK and she was actually having fun when she was on the floor. Foo, I am sending healing vibes to your eyes. I hope you are back to using both of 'em soon.

    Hi Kitty & Coco,
    Looks like fun over at the casino.Did you see all those winnings? I should go out and play a number today.Mom's groceries came to 77.78 today and the man behind her gave her a penny so she paid 77.77 on 7/7.

    Hey Bellatrix,
    Thanks for the nomination, maybe someone could submit the post to the academy. They might make an exception, seeing that a pug did it and everything.

    Josie, Izzy and Anakins,
    Thank you so much for the accolades. I'm glad your Momma liked it.I am still so excited for Tuni and Sequoia to see it. I'm glad you didn't get in trouble for sneaking out. Is Izzy home yet?

    Hi Puddles,
    Thanks for coming by. Glad to have you. We don't discriminate here. We love all dogs and some cats. We just love pugs extra.

    Hi Grammy I know thats you. That's cuz I'm smart.I used context clues. Glad you liked it.I wanted to do something extra special for Mom's Birthday!

  13. What an awesome pawsome post Wilma! We luvs it so's like you were sending a tribute out to everyone...even though it was specially meant for Tuni and Sequoia. The impromptu meeting in Goodland...a fair distance from where we live (outside Wichita, the Air Capital) was met by home cookin' and driving directions. It was raining otherwise...bummer...could have taken' them up to some Ghost Towns and did some rodeoing. But we dids hugs and send them on their way with smiles!
    Luvs you muchums!
