Oblivious Bugg

Our neighbor is kind of crazy and her house mildly looks like a junkyard. But what's good about her is that she does a ton for feral cat rescue. There's even a beautiful black and white cat named Helen that hangs out in the ferns outside our porch. A different cat was hanging out today and poor Bugg was completely oblivious.

See Bugg? See what's behind her? She has no idea.

She literally had no idea:

Cat on the left, Bugg on the right.

Finally I had to point it out to the Bugg so she could have her sniffies and say her hello to the kitty.

Oh that Bugg...

Model Gals

My two beautiful girls probably read too much into those pampered Frenchies... they tried to model for Brian all day!

You know Dixie is serious when she shows off the whites of her eyes!

This picture melts my heart... they're so beautiful!

Wishing you all a great week!

Yummy Crinkly Pig!

Hi everydog it's Sophie. Any of you doggies read about Martha's pampered poochies? Yea guess what. I SAW IT. And I was not happy. Where are my our diamond collars and board games?

Mom made up for it by bringing us home this toy. It's a pig but with no stuffies! It has a crinkly water bottle instead.

We were so excited we didn't know how to approach it!

It makes a crinkle crinkle instead of a squeak... quite enticing! I bet those rich Frenchies at Martha's don't have this.

Dixie took an extra special liking to the pig.

We liked the pig so much we tired ourselves out and Dixie snuggled our crinklepig.

I don't know how the pig felt but Dixie looked content.

We hope none of you are too upset by the rich pampered poochies! Happy weekend!

Real Celeb Frenchies!

I've been enjoying Martha Stewart more and more because of her wedding lovelies, but was super-excited to find that her dogs also have a blog!

The Frenchies, Francesca and Sharkey, have their own blog on her site called The Daily Wag. Look how beautiful they are!

It's informative and entertaining, with tons of great pictures. I've added it to my list!

Go check out Franny & Sharkey's blog! But don't show your pups... they might be jealous of their celebrity status!

Poor Bugg, Poor Bernie

Poor, poor Bugg. She got "bugged" again on Thursday aka got bit by something outside which swelled up her lip. This has happened before but a quick search did not yield the past post so you can just take my word for it. Last time we went to the emergency vet and paid a cool $100 for a Benadryl. This time we were smart! It went down before I even got back from the store but we still gave her a little for discomfort. Enjoy the photos I attempted to take!

See that sweet mob-boss style floppy lip swell? No? Yea well this is pre-Benadryl and Bugg wouldn't keep still!

Poor Bugg!

I also mentioned poor Bernie in my post title. Bernie is my faithful computer (a black MacBook... see why I named him Bernie?) Well after his namesake died I was kind of worried about MY Bernie's safety. Turns out I just stink in general and dropped him and now he's a little worse for the wear. Including some probable internal damage and a nice big crack across the screen. I didn't use him (thus the lack of blog posts) while investigating his illness. The crack is just a flesh wound, but Mac won't investigate the internal damage without fixing everything (I guess it's a warranty thing?) and that would run me a cool $755. Sorry Mac, I don't even have half of that. So, it looks like I will continue to back up files and hope Bernie lives past the wedding. At which time we can hopefully afford his replacement!

And hopefully, he'll stay as healthy as a Bugg!

Look Alikes?

So we were browsing the internets searching for pug beauty tips (not that I, Sophie, need them, just looking to see if the trends have caught up with me yet) and found this card on etsy. It's by seller gemmabear.

I thought it was pretty neat, I mean, good message of course and a handsome little pug... but then it hit me... I think I know that pug?!?!?! I think it's my "fabulous" ex-boyfriend Sal!

I would know that salty scowl anywhere. But Salinger is usually better about neat and trim body grooming... I don't imagine that he'd leave stubble like the pug pictured. Maybe that was added for effect afterwards.

The shop also has prints and cards of some other dog types, like Bostons, Frenchies, and Chihuahuas! Check it out!

I hope you all learned a valuable lesson... photos from your past- even cheap modeling jobs you did to pay the rent- can come back to haunt you. Make 'em sign something.

Peanut.... Peanut Butter- and Snuggie!

Today, Brian finished off a near-empty container of peanut butter. Guess who helped clean it up?

Sophie was standing on her hind legs for SO LONG to get to the peanut-buttery goodness!

All three wanted in on this delicious treat!

Look at that form! She looks like a biped!

I took a video... but had a brain-fart and held the camera sideways. Nice right? My two jobs plus job 3 (wedding planning) have turned my brain to mush... sometimes I honestly can't function and think I have lost brain cells. Anyways, do a pug head tilt and check out Sophie's amazing form!!!!

I also wanted to do my part and support breast cancer research this month. While at Walgreen's, I noticed they had PINK SNUGGIES for just that purpose! Snuggie is donating $50,000 from Pink Snuggie sales to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. Walgreen's had it for only $14.99!!! I think it was $20+ at Bed Bath & Beyond.

Anyways, the pugs gave the Snuggie 3 paws up!

I'm honestly just flabbergasted by her cuteness!

Dixie snuggled up too! She's dreaming about her gift for Murphy for their one year anniversary... I can't wait to tell you all about it!

Harles is probably dreaming of Clover gal!

Am I the luckiest girl ever or what?

Everyone go get 1) some peanut butter for your pups and 2) a PINK SNUGGIE!
