Our weekend with Harry

WARNING everyone...this is going to be a very LONG post, so you may want to clear your schedules, make a snack and have your calls held! We had SUCH a fun and very PUGCENTRIC weekend!

Friday evening, fellow blogger Heather and Harry Pugalicious arrived!
YAY they made it!

In true Salinger Pug form, I looked very concerned about the whole "visitor" situation...
Ummmmm....what do you mean they're staying all weekend????

We REEEALLY hate to tell all of you this...but Harry is even CUTER and SWEETER than he is in his pictures!!!
He's SUCH a laid back, chilled out puggy!

Of course like EVERY Pug...he loves FOOD!
Here's Daddy (a.k.a. Foodman) looking for some foodables in the fridge! Harry thought he was making him a snack!

Since Heather and Harry were staying with us all weekend, I decided that I'd better make friends with Heather...I decided to tell her all about our other puggy friends she was going to meet at Meetup on Saturday!

Mom was snuggling up with Harry and making him comfortable for his weekend getaway.
She mentioned something about Harry needing to be IRONED, but I stopped her (since the woman's iron skills are clearly lacking based on the last post we had!).

Mom and Heather did LOTS of laughing and squealing about how CUUUTE we puggies are!

I tried to get Heather to give me a bite of her dessert (apple crisp) but I think she wanted it all for herself!

Later that night, Pugsley and Lola came over with their mom Heather!!! Pugsley was VERY excited to meet Harry...
I tried to tell Pugsley that Harry only digs the LADIES, but he didn't listen!

Saturday morning, Mom, Holden and Heather took us to Falls Park here in Pendleton to walk around and enjoy the warm fall morning. We watched these ducks for a bit...

On the way home, we had to stop and show Harry some true Indiana cows!

Holden used to think that chocolate milk came from brown cows! HAHAHAHA

THEN it was time to go to the Indy Pug Meetup....

Since Halloween was last weekend, we had our costume contest this time! Mom put me in those farkakte doctor scrubs again!!!!
Here's Aunt Sarah (Hank and O'Mally's mom) "tucking a buck" as her vote for me in the contest (I came in third!)

Here is the winner....our buddy LILO dressed as MINNIE PEARL!

Here is Hank dressed in his normal daily attire (since he IS the King of the Hill).

We posed for our usual Indy Bloggers picture...but notice there are three RANDOM people in the back row on the right!!! NO clue who they are and they just crashed our picture!!!
Of course the Indy Bloggers are much too polite to kick them out of the we just went with it!

After the regular meetup...The Pug Posse's Vikki and Dennis were so nice to host a "mini meetup" at their house so everyone could hang out with Heather and love on Harry!!! As was a BLAST and everyone brought wonderful yummy foodables to share!

This is Rita from The Pug Corral trying to keep Harry from swiping her dinner!

Kelly J. and Mom modeling their adorable puggy shirts!
Mom wants to thank Kelly H. and Kelly J. for passing this shirt on to her!!! You ladies rock!

Heather and Harry's visit totally called for a big honkin' CAKE!
Don't worry...NO puggies were fed any of this chocolatey goodness!

Here is Kelly J. posing with Harry P.
He is such a superstar!!!

Here is another pic of the Indy Bloggers (with NO RANDOMS this time!)

I was getting sleepy, so I cuddled up with Heather....
...and was REEEEEEALLY happy to see her!!! (hahahahaa)

Back at our house, we snuggled some more...with this sweet squeaky giraffe that Heather and Harry brought for me!!!
Ahhhhhhh...SO nice! Heather...will you and Harry move to Indy???? ;-)

We had a nice long sleep and then this morning, the moms took Harry and I out walking in the 'hood again (as if we weren't exhausted enough already!!!)

I showed Harry how I like to dig in the sandbox (a.k.a. beach volleyball court)

Mom posed us on the pier together...

Then it was time for Harry and his mom Heather to go back home to Alabama. We had SO much fun with them this weekend and wish they lived closer! Thank you so much for making the trip up so we could all spend time with you and snuggle with sweet Harry!
...and don't do him justice at all!!!!!

Hope you both have a safe trip back home and please know that you're ALWAYS welcome here!!!!

Salinger dude! I'm speechless! You guys had way too much fun this weekend. I'm so jealous. I should have gotten Mom off her big a** and driven me down there to hang with you guys.

Harry looks super cool and his mom is so pretty. You and your peeps are such perfect hosts. I think there's a road trip to Indy in my future.

Stubby xoxo

Salinger, looks like a lot of fun. Sorry we missed it!

Yoda and Brutus said...

It was great seeing you this weekend - we had a blast. We were so exhausted that we have been sleeping most of the day (We did get up to eat and get snacks of course).

Tweedles -- that's me... said...

We TOTALLY enjoyed looking at every single picture and reading every single word!
All the puggies are so beautiful and all the moms so pretty.
It was sooo much fun reading about it,- thank you for sharing this wonderful time of friendship .
We wish we had a group like you do.

Yay, pictures!! What a great weekend you guys had!! And how nice of Harry and his mom to make the trip up to visit. Maybe now Salinger won't be so hesitant about this 'staying all weekend' thing guests do at times. If your weather was anything like ours here in Chicago, you had a beautiful weekend and from the pics, we know you had a good time!! Thank you so much for sharing!

Those were such great pictures you shared with us thanks. Your mom and her friend look like they had a good time. Careful of those Heather visitors...they couldn't share a crumb! not even a little taste...They probably won't be invited back
