Special Road Trip...Official Pug Business (part 1)

Mom and I had to share our superexcitingawesome ROAD TRIP we had this weekend!!!!

She packed up a bag for her and THIS bag for ME!!!! You can tell it's mine by the luggage tag!

We drove for a while and then mom started having to stop the car at like FOUR of these drive thru windows and give them money!

BUT...we totally got ripped off....they didn't give us any McCheesyBurgers in return! WTF???

After a while, Mom stopped the car and I found myself in front of a familiar door...hmmmm....this porch totally smells familiar......

Mom explained to me that we HAD been here before...but there was a change and a BIG SURPRISE for me! was Aunt Michele, Uncle Gerry and TIFFY!!!!!

I got a little hello kiss from Tiffy and we had a good hello sniff!

Tiffy has settled in very nicely and really seems to LOVE her new forever home!

I totally wanted this BED! Have you ever seen anything so FABULOUS in all your life?????

Of course Tiffy and I got to play, but mom explained to me that she was there on "Official Pug Business". You see, back after Stubby went to the rainbow bridge...Mom promised Auntie Michele that she was going to take her shopping to buy a tree or shrub to plant in honor of Stubby. Mom thought Stubby would have REALLY liked that idea with him being such a Green Pug!

Here are Gerry and Michele holding up Stubby's special memory quilt that was a gift from a bunch of us blogger buddies that knew and loved Stubby. We talked about what a great Puggy Stubby was, and thought this was the perfect weekend to plant because his 14th birthday would have been on Friday, May 13!

Uncle Gerry got Tiffy and I some POPEYES for lunch, also in honor of Stubby!

NOM NOM NOM NOM!!!! Be sure to CLICK HERE to go to Tiffy's blog and read about her very first Popeye's experience! HAHAHA!

After lunch, Mom and Michele went to Hawthorn Gardens to shop. Aunt Michele picked out a beautiful pink flowering Sweet Almond shrub. We think it's perfect!

Uncle Gerry did all the hard work and dug the hole and positioned the shrub just right.

We can't wait to see pics of Stubby's Shrub grow and flower over the years! We think this is a GREAT way to keep his memory alive!

Stubby...the Most Interesting, and longest armed Pug in the World!

I told Tiffy all kinds of stories about the things Stubby and I had discussed over the few years that I knew him. I told her she had some BIG PugShoes to fill, but she told me she was up to the challenge and THEN kicked my butt at a nice game of "Chase"!

WHOOOOOO!!! I'm TIRED! TiffyGirl wore my PugButt OUT!!!

I'm going to get some ZZZZZZZZs and will fill you in on the rest of our visit tomorrow!!!!

Hi Salinger,
I could not wait to read this posty!
I know Tiffy was so excited to see you, and I could tell that you were excited to see her.
Oh Salinger the tree you all picked out is perfect. It is beautiful, and it will grow so proudly in honor of Stubby.
I am so happy that you were able to travel those many many miles to see Tiffy's family.
Me and my moms watched the video 4 times, and it made us laugh.
You and Tiffy running and playing was the highlight of our day!
You are both precious,,,,,
What a wonderful way to honor Stubby.
What a wondeful visit.
Thank you for sharing it with us,

Tiffy said...

This was the best weekend ever! I had such a great time with you, Salinger. I'm so glad we finally got to meet, eat, and play.

Thank you so much for planting the sweet almond in my backyard. I will water it every day and it will get big and strong just like Stubby was. He would have loved the little shrub and I know he's looked down from the bridge watching over it.
