As you can see by Harley's face here... we've been exhausting the pugs and boring them at the same time.
We've spent LOTS of time with family celebrating Christmas and our engagement! Barely any of it involved pugs though, poor things.
Laura and Kevin came over with Salinger last night! We've been talking about doing this all year, and we are glad we finally all got together. Look what they made us:
This cake was in addition to the wonderful champagne, lasagna and caesar salad. What great pug friends!
Since Sophie and Salinger are "in love" (aka Sophie is Salinger's "beard") we had them exchange gifts. The pugs got Salinger a turtle-tennis-ball without knowing that Laura is deathly afraid of turtles! Whoops! We decided he is now an armadillo.
Salinger also received a shirt to help beef up his manliness... "SUP DAWG?"
It was QUITE difficult to get our pugs to act civilized when presented with gifts. Harles went from being a fine gentleman to an unruly ingrate!
Check out the bitey-face going on with Harles and Dixie. It wasn't pretty. How embarrassing.
Dixie really wanted to be involved in the human parts of the dinner.
We attempted to get some pictures of Salinger and Sophie.
After tons of running around, the pugs did get some down time. I told Kevin to enjoy what I experience every day- the PUG PILE!
Then we took some cheesy pictures of us cutting our engagement cake! Good practice for our wedding! We are thinking of a destination wedding to Mexico in early 2010. If anyone has any tips or experience, shoot ideas to our puggy e-mail (listed on the right).
And I can't not throw in a photo of handsome Salinger when it also features a classic Dixie noseguard!
Thanks Laura, Kevin, and Salinger for the Christmas/engagement celebration! Hope you are all having fun winding down 2008, and thanks for all the congratulations!
