A Mild, Sunny Day In California Means Pugs Can Play

Yesterday was a PERFECT day. And it got even perfecter with a trip to the north bay and a visit with my PUG pals. It was great from start to finish as we left during the cool morning and drove for an hour. I say in the back seat in my crate and just wallowed in the sweet sea cooled air coming in through the window. I think it made me snooze a little because before I knew it we were there.

I have never been to Gerty's house before but heard it was a super place to hang out. Those reports were absolutely correct. Gerty has a big back yard with lots of decks and plants and a garden and GRASS!!!! She has green grass in her backyard! We don't because the water to keep it green would be too expensive. But Gerty lives near a creek and that keeps the soil nice and moist even if her 'rents are not constantly watering. It was a luxury to walk on it.

This is Gerty. Isn't she lovely? She turned 14 years young on Aug 27
We were among the first to arrive - however Tiffy beat us and Bellatrix arrived at the same time. As you may or may not know, Tiffy and Belli are my besties. I am always so thrilled when I see them. We were shuffled into the back yard and there we got to say our HELLOS and update each other on what we have been up to. It has been quite a while since we all had a pug (plus a chiwiwi) gathering, so we had a lot to catch up on.

This is a weird angle, MOM! Tiffy and me posing pretty

Soon the yard was covered in PUGS. Well, that is a little exaggeration but there were about 9 of us. That is quite a few. Let's see, there was Gerty, ME, Tiffy, Bellatrix, Hanna, Baloo, Phoebe, Fezzik, Ms. Ellie and Angel the chiwiwi. Such fun. 

Me and Phoebe. She is 11 or 12 years old now, I forget. She is a
funny funny dame, though.

We mostly wandered here and there checking out the smells and visiting with the humans. The humans were, of course, too busy EATING and chatting to really pay attention to us. Although, I have to admit I got a lot of pets, pats, and lovin' scritches behind my ears. It was PUG HEAVEN!

After a few hours, it started to get a little warm. That meant it was time to say goodbye. But before we left we too a group photo with our HUMOMS. I have a big smile on my face just thinking about it. I love this group so much.

Such fun. When Mom was a pilot on Untied Airlines, she used to practically LIVE at SFO. She loved the layovers there, especially the big chocolate chippy cookies at the Doubletree near the airport.
