Welcome Summer 2010

Hello Peoples, Here it is, the unofficial start of Summer. After a pretty harsh winter we couldn't be happier. We hope all of you are celebrating the Memorial Day Holiday with lots of fun, friends, family and food. We will be picnicing and hiking, landscaping(with poop) and hanging loose.

As you know, us flat faced breeds can be pretty sensitive to the heat and humidity in the summer. Our friends over at Pug Possessed and Little Miss Pearl posted some excellent information about the dangers of summer heat at their blogs and I am going to send you to Sluggos rescue Curly Tail Rescue to check out there info.What ever you are doing have fun and be careful! Sluggo has something to say, for all of us...

Hi Everybody, Sluggo here. I wanted to be sure and offer up thanks and appreciation to all of the brave soldiers who have given their lives and continue to fight for our freedom. It is thanks them we can enjoy life, liberty and the pursuit of liver treats.

Thanks Sluggo. Hope you all have a great weekend. I can't wait to hear all about all the fabulous treats you manage to trick your people into!!

Wilma's Wednesday Words of Wisdom ~ Sunflower Club Edition

"Always stay true to yourself"

This week I figured I'd put out some wisdom that could carry over to our Sunflower Club. A sort of motto if you will.. I have many lessons to share with you, but I feel that this is one of  the most important ones. Above all we have to be the best self we can. We owe it to ourselves and we owe it to our people. Much of what I share with you is what has worked for me. But I only want you to take with you what helps you be great. After all, there is only one ME, and there's only one you. If you are a sweet, snuggly  pup be as sweet as you can. If you are a funny little clown, make 'em laugh til they cry. If you are a highfalutin' princess, make 'em bow at your paws. Are ya feelin' me?

So ,let me know what you think girls. This club is all of ours. If you have any ideas for other credos, please share. Make sure you tell your friends about the club. There is an open invitation for all girls. The more of us there are, the better we all will be.

Suflower Sisters unite! There's power in the flower!

Calling All Girls

  Sorry boys. but if you are reading this, please step away from the computer. Except Salinger, you are invited

Are they gone? Good.

OK ladies, I have a very special announcement. It all started back in the beginning of spring. An idea, inspired by Josie and Stubbys romance, to start an all girl club was born. Josie wanted to plant a Stubby flower.  I suggested a sunflower so it would grow so tall she could see Stubby from the top of it.
Then another brainstorming session took place on Those Elgin Pugs blog back when I was having a senior moment in April.
What am I talking about already, you are probably asking. It's called The Sunflower Club. Josie, Izzy, Brigitte and I are already Sunflower sisters, and we would like to invite you all to join us.
Mom and me have been working on making a logo, like a badge for all the sisters who would like to join. That is it at the beginning of the post.  It is also on our sidebar. All you have to do to join is leave a comment with your name, and then you can post the badge from the sidebar on your blog. We are going to be planting a giant sunflower, and you all can do the same. This is one of the ways we will be able to spy on boys.

 Now, I know there is already interest in the club. Pearl, Fifi, Bellatrix, Sequoia, Tuni, Stella and Betty. You guys are in. So go ahead and upload your badge if you like.
So far, there are no hard and fast rules to the club. But we can all work together to have it evolve into whatever we want. So enjoy and let your imaginations go wild. We are totally open to suggestions.

Sluggo Sneaks on By

Hi everybody! This here is Sluggo. I am kinda bein' sneaky here. Wilma is sleeping and I noticed the laptop was open. I've been wanting to tell everyone about the hike we went on this past weekend. I don't think Wilma was gonna share cuz there weren't any pictures of her from the trip. Well, there is one. (This is the part I know I'm gonna be in trouble for)

Me and Mom were walking together when she took this picture. She was laughing and saying something about a pug sh*tting in the woods. Wilma never even turned around, so she doesn't know about this picture. But there was other fun stuff we did, and cute pictures of me and Brigitte. So I said the heck with it, I'll just give her one of my looks and tell her what a sexy couger she is if she gets mad.

As we were walking along we saw alot of pretty things.

The ferns were just waking up, Mom called these fiddleheads. She said they are very tasty. They didn't smell very tasty.

Mom said she thought these were buttercups. She and Dad were recently taliking about not seeing buttercups in a long, long time. When she put the flower under her chin, it turned her chin yellow. She said it made her feel like a kid again. I wasn't really paying attention because when she said butter, I figured these thing must taste good. I was wrong.

What did taste good was the bread and cheese they brought for sustinence. They shared small pieces with us all.

Here's Brigitte in her bag that Dad carries her in. She gets to ride in her bag when we don't take her carriage. Doesn't she look so blissed out.
 I hope you all have a great weekend, and I hope Wilma doesn't get too mad about me hijacking her blog.

Shout out to my pal Anakin. He had stupid complications from his surgery last week and had to get more surgery. We are all hoping and wishing for him to have nothing but smooth sailing from here on out. Feel free to stop by  and offer a few words of encouragement to him and his fams.

Wilmas Wednesday Words of Wisdom~ I'm Just to Look At

"Don't touch me, I'm just to look at"

Welcome, students. Some of you will find todays lesson more difficult than others will. A limited number of you enlightened canines out there, already have this wisdom down pat. For the rest of you, what I'd like to teach you today, is more of an attitude than an edict. What you need to do when humans come around, to let them know how highly valued your attention is, is not to let them touch you. I know,I know, it sounds hard, but you can do it. It should look something like this...

Just a little step back

What they will often do, is  lean over to pet you. You may or may not be in the mood to be touched. Or maybe you don't particularly like or trust this person. They do not have the right or priviledge to feel your soft coat. They can not steal your affection away. Like I said, many of you will find this counter-intuitive. Like Brigitte and Sluggo. I show them again and again and they just can't seem to get it. They get so damn excited about the slightest bit of attention. Jumping up and down, spinning frantically, licking uncontrollably.Trust me when I tell you, it's not a good look. I'll even take it one step further. When your own humans slow down and sit at the end of the day, there is no need to run and leap into their laps.The're not going anywhere. In fact, for those of you out there who allow them to sleep with you, you're about to get at least 5 to 6 good hours of snuggle time. Let them miss you. Make them wait. Do like I do. Once everyone is settled in, get up out of whatever comfortable spot you are in, and run into the room. Make a grand entrance,on your terms. They'll love it, and you my friends will have demonstrated higher value.

Here's the upshot. Once you have mastered this tactic, you will then have a method for letting your truly favorite people know how great you think they are. That's right, there is a time and place to cut loose and go wild. You know who they are. Maybe it's a certain scent,or the fact they always give you turkey or ham when you see them( ~wink~ to Uncle Jimmy), or maybe they are the people of some of your favorite friends.Whatever the reason, you decide when to bestow the unbridled love and affection upon them. It will mean so much more.

Until next time, practice, practice, practice.
Master Wilma

Happy Birthday Anakin

Hey there everybody. I'd like to take this day to salute our friend Anakin. I believe today is his birthday cuz his girlfriend Sequoia posted a birthday greeting for him today.Under normal circumstances,I might be suggesting that he lay back,chill out and enjoy the day. Now, I certainly would recommend this activity, however I am adding an addendum since Anakins' circumstances are not normal. See Anakin found himself in a little trouble last week with some chicken.

This said chicken wound up in his belly, along with it's bones.This caused all kinds of problems, as you would imagine, and Anakin found himself  going under the knife to get rid of the damn things. So, instead of  having days like this...

I am going to wish him the return of days like this...

Happy Birthday Anakin!!! Many Happy Returns!!
                                                    Love, Wilma, Brigitte and Sluggo

The Check Up

Where we goin' Ma?

Lemme see, lemme see,c'mon move Sluggo

Why don't you guys just chill out and enjoy the ride?

I know where we are going, to the vet. Me and Sluggo are having our annual exam. Brigitte's just along for the ride

Really Mom?

Ah hahahahahahaha no shots for me

Hmff . That's not fair

So, we got to get seen by our new vet for the first time today.I knew I would like her 'cuz we met her at her open house, where she gave us lots of rubs and treats. I got an excellent bill of health with my nine year old self. Props to Britte and Sluggo who got really upset when they were trying to take my blood away.
Then it was Sluggo's turn. He did ok too. He needed his ear flushed out and the doc found a couple odd things. She said he had a prolapsed urethra and one of his pupils was sluggish. Pretty wierd huh? I told the vet his whole self is sluggish, he's Sluggo! Then she explained that one of his orbs' black spots reacts slow to a bright light. She told Mom just to keep an orb on his pee hole and she said he checked out fine neurolog...some long word I don't know. So maybe that's just how his orb is. Returning the favor, I yelled at the vet when they were taking his blood away. She just laughed and said I was cute. Well duh, I know I'm cute, I want you to stop poking my man.
Over all it was a good day cuz I got the Mom to spend lots of money. Now it's off to our accupuncture today. Mom said something about eating alot of  beans and pasta next week.Whatever, just keep the premium kibble coming.
Anybody out there have any experience about this prolapsed pee hole thing? Even though the vet told her not to , she's insisting on worrying about her little Sluggy Bee.
