Please - Just a Whisper of a Taste

Is that for ME????

The thing most of you may not know is I am on a pretty strict diet regimen. That is why I have such a slender profile and slim waist. I get 1/3 of a cup of food at 6am and 6pm. When I get treats they are usually something like a carrot, lettuce, broccoli, and so on. I am not allowed to be fed from the table - people food is a no-no - and if I beg at the table I am usually put in my room.

So there we were at Bellatrix's PAWty and we are not only allowed at the restaurant but also UNDER THE TABLES! OMD! This is gonna be TERRIBLE, I thought. I mean, to be so close to THEIR food and yet it will be so FAR away from our tummys!

Imagine my surprise when all of a sudden my Mommy #2's hand came down by my nose and OFFERS me a sweet potato fry!!!! Granted, only 1, but A SWEET POTATO FRY!!!! I no sooner gobbled that down when there was her hand again - this time with LETTUCE with a sliver of MAYO on it!!!! I think I was delirious by this time because these are treats I NEVER get at home.

I truly felt I had died and gone to PUGGY HEAVEN when the *Cotton Candy came and . . . need I say more?

* Cotton Candy is this incredible confection made by simultaneously melting and spinning sugar at a fast speed until thin threads shoot out. The threads are then "spun" around a stick, cone, hand, whatever.

My Pawty Pawsee

This dude was the Pawty overlord. He made sure everypuggy had fun

So I know Bellatrix has given the lowdown on her Birthday Bash of the YEAR but I wanted to share my portraits of all of my new furiends. Take your insulin and prepare for SWEETNESS overload!

Spencer - Bellatrix's BF
Ladies and gents - THE WORST picture
of Puglet that you will EVER
see! His face says DEPRIVED of a
Tasty morsal!!!

Bellatrix the Birthday Gal

Frank, Puglet's pal - he charmed all the
girls and Gran'rents

Sweet Zoe - she and Phoebe were older than
the rest but still kept up

Group shot, surprisingly we were all
kinda stationary for a split second

Me, trying to be extra cute for

DUTCH!!!! Why'd ya let them do that to

Mochi, Noodle's, not Noodles's new
Noodle channeling his inner
EWOK. He really has a very SWEET
Me and my PAWSOME goodie bag. In the
background are Noodle's and Mochi's Grandma
and Mommy. They are SUPER COOL!!
Birthday PAWties are so fun but so tiring at the same time. I BARELY made it to the car to drive home. . . In fact, I INSISTED that Mommy #1 CARRY ME to the car! But whoa! I had fun and I cannot wait to see my PAWsee again.

There's Gotta Be a MORNING AFTER

Bellatrix's Goody Bags were FILLED with so much FUN!!!!!

Sorry everypuggy. I am afraid I am still a little, shall we say, hungover from Bellatrix's PAWsome 2nd BIRTHDAY PAWty! I had so much fun. As soon as I can move again, I will put together the pictures of the GANG!!!! I had such a blast.
Oh, Mommy . . .  I need another ICE PACK, moan!
Oh . . . and maybe that little cookie over there on the left side of the pile.

Foggy Thoughts

I was feeling GOOD - all sunny and bright
Then the fog came back - and it looks like NIGHT
I can't wake up and I'm feelin a CHILL
Reality is such an ICY bitter pill
The WEATHERdude says we will see SUN
But I can tell it has not yet begun
Breakin' up and movin away
Go AWAY FOG - let the SUNSHINE stay!

. . .  "But Mommy," I cried. "I DON'T want to be stuck in a kennel even if it IS DISNEY!"
Mommy totally sympathized with me " I didn't think THIS is what they meant when they told me Disneyland was totally pet friendly. I think I have a plan, though," she said quietly.

It was later in the day, during the PARADE that Mommy came back to get me. "Shhhhhhh," she said "And follow me." It was easy to be quiet because during the PARADE the air is filled with music and cheering. Plus every CAST MEMBER was busy making sure the PARADE went off without incident.

Out the BACKDOOR we went, quietly so as not to disturb ANYdog. Next thing I knew WE WERE IN THE PARK BEHIND THE SCENES. And there, waiting, was the ol' mouse himself M-I-C-K-E-Y!!!!! Mommy had told him how disappointed I was to be stuck in the KENNEL and asked if he could say HELLO to me just to cheer me up. But MICKEY being MICKEY, he decided to make my day something I would never forget - a TOUR of the park AND my own PUGsonal guide HIM!!!!!

As you can tell from the pictures, I did EVERYTHING there was to do and had so much fun!!!
The day turned out so marvelous and I could hardly believe my buggy PUGGY eyes. And the TREATS!!!! Popcorn! Mickey Mouse shaped ice creams! Churros!!! And the BEST SNACK OF ALL -

 . . . . . . Noodles, oh Noodles . . . It is time to wake up SLEEPYHEAD! Noodles!!! That must be SOME DREAM if you don't want to get up and EAT!

The SKY is, uh GRAY and the day is . . .

And the DAY is MONDAY
It still SEEMS like Summer
But the day is a BUMMER
Mommys got up and started to HURRY
They dressed and packed up in a FLURRY
I am left here - HOME alone
Just ME and a little leftover bone
I think I will PONDER a sunnier day
Before SCHOOL took my Mommys away

Dreaming Up An Adventure

Ummmm! Mommy . . . This is not exactly what I had in mind . . . I need to put on my THINKING BONNET and come up with an escape to the PARK plan.

And My DREAM Continues

And So MY DREAM Continues. . .

Heading down Highway Number Five
Speeding along and feeling quite ALIVE
Where is my final DESTINATION
This is gonna be the BEST vacation

We drove for what seemed like a BAZILLION hours through the farmlands of California. The weather was warm and the traffic mild (it got crazy much later). We made as few stops as we could because we wanted to GET THERE.

It was taking much longer than driving to Tahoe. Like 999,999,999 hours longer and equally more distant!
Finally . . . there it was . . . on the horizon . . .

Oh Mommys!!!! I cried! I have ALWAYS wanted to go here . . . thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!

 My family and I were sitting at the dinner table discussing the end of the SUMMER and what it meant to all of us. We had already been to TAHOE - which was magical to say the least - but we all felt there was one more adventure just waiting to happen.

So we packed up the car, grabbed water and snacks and headed to the open road. We were VAGABONDS - GYPSIES going where the WIND will take us. CAREFREE. . . .

Hey! Where Did I Go?

Hello everyone,
It has not escaped my notice that I have been missing from Blogville for a couple of days. I plan to make it all up to you as soon as I get my photos off of the camera card. It is SOOOOOO hard to do without those dang thumbs!
I will tell you it was a RARE treat and not everypuggy gets to go on such a marvelous adventure. The worst part of the whole TRAVEL THINGY was TRAFFIC! I do not like sitting in traffic AT ALL.

Click the word TRAFFIC!!!! in the caption to see what I mean.

Tap-dancing into Tuesday

It's TUESDAY and I am a-raring to go
From SF to San Diego
Grab your cane and your very best hat
We're tap tap tapping so we don't get FAT

I woke up this morn, ready to ROCK
Put on my shoe and bright white sock
MOONDANCE with me across the tile
We're gonna make it last a while

Woohoo and Yippity Yay
I can do this ALL DAY
I loves to give myself the chance
To spend the day doin' nuttin' but DANCE

Monday - REALLY?

Can it possibly be?
Is it Monday again?
I had such a whirlwind weekend - you know I am back on my own turf again and this weekend was all about catching up on yard duty and corner snuffling. Dawn to dusk - I tell you it is exhausting work.
To make matters worse, the yardwork kicked up a little allergy action as well do I have been sneezing and my eyes are watering.
I am a wreck!
I think I will stay this way until Tuesday rolls around and I can function more normally.

Does anyone know the way to Bora Bora?

So I heard Gracie is turning 10 years old and to celebrate she went to Bora Bora SANS 'RENTS!!! AND she has decided to throw a beach PAWty to end all beach PAWties! I am raring to go but I am sorta clueless as to where Bora Bora is.

Gracie, I'm a-comin' as soon as I know WHERE I am a-comin' to.

This not That SPOT

I ponder from this spot
It isn't cold or hot
I like that it is near
The food I find so dear

I ponder 'bout the day
I ponder where to play
I ponder what to eat
And I ponder about my seat

I ponder from the floor
Making sure to clear the door
And away from sliding chairs
Which might pinch my fawny hairs

I ponder from this spot
And more likely than not
I will find myself a treat
Somewhere near my feet

Biking Bliss

Beautiful Lake Tahoe
Incredibly warm sunny days
Kick me outta the House early
In the Meadows I plays
Note how well I run
Gotta keep up with the fun

Biking is a lot of work
Lovin' every minute
It took a while to learn it
Still fears inside me lurk
Stay away from the wheels!

End of Vacation Blues

I woke up this morning and my Mommys were getting ready FOR WORK!.
I thought to myself, I know what is happening. My Mommys are LEAVING ME.
BUT I WENT OUTSIDE, like usual, to do my bidness and then ate BREAKFAST.
Afterward, I ran UPSTAIRS to my Mommy #2's bedroom and snuggled up on the carpet by the bed.
I wouldn't BUDGE. When Mommy #2 came in, I gave her an I-DARE-YOU look.
You know what happened next? She grabbed me and took me DOWNSTAIRS!
My mommy gave me a Chicken strip and I ran into my room.  I TOTALLY FELL FOR THE PLOY!
Next thing I knew, I looked and saw my MOMMY #1 close the door. 
I MISS LAKE TAHOE where they don't have to work.

Now I am waiting for my Mommys to come back.
