Ok....are you ready to wrap your heads around a very cool/bizarre/sweet story? Once upon a time, back in 1992, Mom was a college senior and had a really nice boyfriend named Todd. Here's a pic of them at her sorority date party....
Now...fast forward to present day...Mom and Todd are still very good friends and have kept in touch all the while. Todd lives in Louisville, KY (about 3 hours south of Indy) and is a great daddy to two cute ShihTzus.
SO...a lady that Todd knows had this sweet Puggy named ZOE. For whatever reason, she decided that she deserved a better home that what the lady could give her, so she asked Todd if Zoe could come live with HIM and the ShihTzus....
Notice in this pic that there is a Todd, A Zoe, but NO ShihTzus!!!! They did NOT like each other AT ALL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Todd knows that Mom is a total Crazy Pug Lady and called and asked if SHE might want a sweet puggy girl OR if she knew anyone that would. WHAT TIMING!!!!!!! Mom said that she DID know of someone that was ready and willing to give this sweet Puggy a fabulous ForeverHome!
OH...this isn't terribly important...but Todd had been calling the puggy "Doris". He said the name suited her! HAHAHAAA
Mom and Todd synchronized their watches this morning, hopped in their cars, and met at the halfway point between Louisville and Indy so Mom could get sweet Zoe/Doris!
AWWWWWWW!!! She's SO SWEET!!!!
After a short visit, drink and a walk...mom loaded Zoe/Doris into her car, said "Goodbye" and "Thank you" to Todd and started the car....
Poor Zoe/Doris was so confused! She thought TODD was going to be her new Daddy!!!
Mom brought Zoe/Doris back to OUR house where I sniffed her and then decided that I should ignore her. Mom said I had to be NICE to her and that she was only going to stay with us for a few hours until her NEW MOMMY could come pick her up!
See there? If I don't LOOK at her....she's NOT there!!! GENIUS!!!!
Mom was all squealy over how CUTE Zoe/Doris was!
(Ignore Mom's hooves in this pic.....she knows she needs a pedicure)
Zoe/Doris LOOOOOVES her some belly rubs!!!!!
"MORE MORE MORE!!!"
THEN.....we heard a car pull up!!!! WHO could it BE?????
Zoe/Doris has a NEW MOMMY!!!!!!!!
SURPRISE!!!!!!! It's LYDIA!!! You may know her as Maggie's mom (not the Maggie that always stays with us....but the Maggie from Meetup that liked to hump Apollo!)
Most of you probably know that Sweet Maggie made a very sudden and unexpected trip to the Rainbow Bridge last month. Lydia has been looking and looking for another Puggy to love and help her heal. Mom knew this and thought this was a PERFECT match!
Lydia was SO HAPPY to meet her new baby!
She also agreed that Zoe/Doris was indeed a very pretty girl!!!!
Sweet Zoe/Doris fit into Maggie's pink harness and then sat with her new mommy for some snuggles!
"We're gonna make a GREAT team, mommy! GIRL POWER!"
After getting acquainted, Lydia and Zoe/Doris went home to get settled and start their new life together!
Look how HAPPY they both are!!!!!! Such BIG smiles!!!!
"Is she GONE yet, Mom???....I can't have this TWO PUG business going on around here!!!"
"Now can we PLEASE refocus your FULL attention back on MOI!????? JEEZ!!!"
***SALINGER'S NOTE*** Can you TOTALLY tell that this whole cockamaime story came from MOM??? Here's MY version.....
Mom talked on the phone with someone
Mom got in the car and left me home to watch Food Network for like 93939596848 hours.
Mom came back with this girl Pug that smelled funny and tried to bogart my toys and water bowl
Lydia came over and scratched my butt and told me I was cute (about dang time SOMEONE did!)
Lydia took the Girl Pug away
I had my house to myself again.
Don't Tell Mom
