A Goodbye and a Pug Fight!

Hi everyone!
We heard some not so great news the other day from our good pal Harry and LuLu and their mom Heather. Their beloved Midi T. Kitty crossed the Rainbow Bridge on Monday.

Here is a rare pic of Harry and Midi sort of snuggling!
Go visit Harry's Blog and show some love if you haven't already...ok? Sweet Midi was almost 15 and she will be very missed. make all of you smile...we have a little something to share...

Mom's good friend Kyle (yeah, we agree...she REALLY needs to do more blogging!) sent this video to us. At first when mom saw the title, she got all mad thinking it was some kind of Michael Vick jackassery....
THEN we laughed! (Biggify to get the full effect)

SO accurate!

Happy Thursday everyone!!!

Brusha brusha brusha!

Our pal Brutus the Frenchie's mom is a dentist and clued us all in that this is National Pet Dental Hygiene Month!

SO...we're following the lead from our minty fresh pals, Bajas, Brutus, and Benny & Lily and showing you how I love having my teefs brushed!
FIRST...Mom loads up my brush with special BEEF teefpaste for doggies!

Then we brush brush brush!

Don't forget the back ones!

Hank and O'Mally's mom (Aunt Sarah) will be SO proud of me!!! (Because she's a Dental Hygienist and has to use that iron hook to make people's gums bleed all day).

Here's a video of me in full Dental hygienic action....

Since we're celebrating Pet Dental Hygiene thought this was the perfect time to post one of her FAVORITE old SNL bits (she has like a bazillion, but this one is REALLY funny!)

TASTES GREAT ON A CRACKER!!!! Mmmm....I'll have to try that with my BEEF teefpaste!

What the PUCK is all the excitement about????

OMG...the peeps have lost their minds!!!!
USA BEAT Team Canada in hockey last night!!! I'm sure all the screaming and yelling the peeps did really helped Team USA out!

It was kind of hard to choose sides because Mike Babcock is coaching Team Canada...and he is the coach of our Beloved Red Wings....BUT....on the other paw, THIS turdley whine-box is on Team Canada and mom can't stand him...

I told Mom I'd totally pee on Sidney Crosby's leg if I ever had the chance!

In the end...USA won and the peeps were waving these flags around in my face and disturbing my typically quiet evening...

This morning, mom explained to me that thirty years ago TODAY...THIS happened....

Wow....I guess I can be patriotic JUST for today....

Can you hear me now?

Remember my Pug stuffie PHOEBE and her ear issues? (click here for a refresher)'s the latest in the Phoebe ear saga....

"OMG...LOOK what SOMEONE did to Phoebe! Must have been another cat break-in!"

Looks like Phoebe will be headed to the ER....STAT!

Happy Sunday!

He blinded me with SCIENCE!!!!


Thank you Mr. Dolby!

Everyone settle down and be ready to be scientifically blown away!
FIRST up....check out Holden and his science project!!!!

He learned how MRI works! Notice the TWO ribbons on the table in front of him! The red was the "Participant" ribbon that everyone got and then the blue was the "FINALIST" ribbon! Holden didn't win the overall prize, but we are SO proud of him for doing such an awesome job all by himself on this informative project!

He even used an MRI film of his own HEAD!

WOW...look at his eyeballs! They look all buggy like MINE! Holden must be part PUG!

CONGRATULATIONS HOLDEN! We're so proud of you!!!!!

NOW....since Holden was being all smart and science-y, Pugsley and I decided to conduct our own experiment here at the house yesterday...

"Is it better to kiss the Cabana Boy or each other????"

A lot of preparation and scientific research went into this project, so we'll explain each step....

1. The "Grow Your Own Cabana Boy" (from Gunther, Stella and Betty) has been soaking in water for about a week now...

2. Light a candle to "set the mood"...

3. Kiss the Cabana Boy (we named him Renaldo)...
Pugsley was up first...

My turn...

4. we kiss each other....

5. Now time to enter all of our data....


I guess scientific data will have to wait. We have our answer right here.

Happy Friday everyone!!!!!

Happy Mardi Gras/Fat Tuesday/Paczki Day/Shrove Tuesday....Whatever Day!

I am celebrating this great day by sleeping in until the crack of 10:30am with Holden (who has ANOTHER snow day!).

NOW...because Mom is trying to be all green and more into recycling (thanks to STUBBY!)...we're going to re-use our Mardi Gras post from last year (because the pics make mom laugh!)



Bonjour everyone!!!!

I, Salinger The Pug want to wish each of you a very happy happy Mardi Gras!

In honor of the big day, mom was nice enough to let me stick my head in an almost empty can of her favorite Cafe Du Monde coffee from N'awlins
"Mmmm....can we get some beignets over here????"

She let me play with her voodoo doll
"Heh heh heh....WHO'S gonna get it today???"

I won't even TELL you the degrading things I had to do for these beads...
"Oh no...if the crew from Pugs Gone Wild shows up, I'm in trouble!"

Mom also wants to pass along a BIG "HAPPY PACZKI DAY" to all of her friends and family from the Detroit area! For those of you up there....have a prune paczki for her...they're her favorite!!!!

Hot Valentine's Date with Pugsley!

I had a hot Valentine's Date with my BPF/Life Partner PUGSLEY! I spent all day getting ready and mom even helped me light some CANDLES!

We exchanged Valentines!!!

Pugsley brought me this sultry pic valentine...AND

My favorite treats from Three Dog Bakery!!!!

Here is Heather showing Pugsley and Lola the valentine I made for them...

Then we got to sample the yummy peanut butter treats that mom made!

Oh, my dearest Pugsley....I love you more than a fat kid loves cake!!!!

We should run away to Vermont and have a Civil Union!!!!

Wait....Dad says that Puggy unions really aren't legal ANYWAY, so maybe we can just "tie the knot" this summer with all of our friends around? YAY!!!!!!!

We can serve cocktail weiners and mini meatballs in the park!!!! How perfect!!!!

We celebrated our "engagement" with some drinks (water for puggies and MaiTais for hoomans)


Before Pugsley had to go home, we took our "official" engagement photo...

I asked mom to send it in to the newspaper, but she didn't think they'd print a Puggy announcement, much less one for a "civil union" such as ours, SO we'll have to settle for sharing our excitement with our blogger buddies!

Happy Valentine's Day everyone!!!

Happy Valentine's Day (a.k.a. stupid Hallmark Holiday as mom and dad call it)!!!

Hi everyone and Puggy kisses to all!

Here I am looking all "romantical" and dashing in my official 2010 Valentine Picture....

Poor Molly O'Mally got the wrong idea from the Valentine I sent to her and Hank. Sheesh....poor girl has NO gaydar at all! (hahahaha!) Jump on over and pay the poor ol' gal a visit ok?

I participated in Stubby's ValenPug exchange with a few others and just LOOK at all these cool Valentines I got!

Mom says it's ridiculously sad that I get more mail than she and dad!

Of course I love ALL the Valentines I got, but I have a special fondness for this one from my BPF/Life partner, PUGSLEY.... sweet!!!!

Stay tuned tomorrow for a special Valentine's post of the wonderful evening Pugsley and I had!!!!

Enjoy your Valentine's Day/Hallmark Holiday everyone! We hope you all take full advantage of this day designed around 'getting it on' AND chocolate!!!!

Frigid Frosty Friday (with Freezing Fog!)

BRRRRRR!!!! It was SIX degrees here this morning (SIX!) Holden has school, but they were running on a 2 hour delay because of the freezing fog. Look what it did to the trees!

Don't worry about me! I found a nice sunny patch in the front doorway.

Happy Friday and stay warm everyone!

ANOTHER snow day!!!!

You've probably heard by now that "Snowmageddon" has blanketed the Midwest and east coast, causing schools to close and Pugs to remain home snuggled with their hooman siblings and do things like this...


We hope you're staying warm and safe wherever you are!!!

Superbowl festivities and possible explanation...

Ugh...good morning after a heartbreaking Superbowl Sunday everyone. By now, you all know that our beloved Colts LOST to the Saints (yeah...they showed us "Who Dat" all right!)

We had a fun time here at our are some pics (and can you believe that mom didn't get ANY of the food?)

Holden (with BLUE hair) and I waiting for our friends to arrive...

Here I am with Holden and his friend Katelin. She is a Steelers fan, but that's ok.

Here are our friends the Aikens...all bunched up like a log ride!

Watching the game with Daddy...

The designated "girls only couch"...

Katelin, Sydney and Mom

And FINALLY....a picture that was taken last November of Heather (Harry Pugalicious' mom) when she was here visiting. She wanted to SEE Lucas Oil Stadium (where the Colts play) and we think she laid some kind of voodoo/gris gris on our Colts back then so they would be sure to lose the is proof of her casting this odd "spell" using what could ONLY be some sort of ancient magic gesture....

We didn't think we believed in all that hooey...but we are kind of thinking twice this morning!

Congrats Saints and Saints fans!

Happy Monday everyone!
