Our little pug Mona is a year and two months old, she is a happy little girl even though she is stubborn sometimes. She does not like the hot weather we have in Florida but managed to survive through the summer. She is smart and a sweetheart.
Hey guys I just found this, did you know you sent it to your self...LOL... I never got it, just happened to go to your page and found it. So glad Mona is doing well. Puga also got a little scar on her left eye from the stitches. It looks kindof like a Nike check. Hopefully it will fade in time, it's not to bad but I no it's there. Your word for the eye goop is nicer than mine, I call them eye boogers...LOL I spoke to the vet about her left eyelid drooping and he said to bring her in for him to look at, I had gone in to get something and just decided to mention it. It really has inproved some and doesn't do it all the time. I'll get around to it eventually. Now that more time has passed how is Mona doing and looking?
It's a long story and i won't go into it all but we seem to have a new member in our household. We recently rescued a 6yr old Jack Russell Terrior from my husbonds dead uncles condemed house. Did ya get all that? LOL Like I said long story but this poor little girl ahs been majorly neglected and abused. She is in sad shape and trusts no one. Was hoping to be able to find a home for her but it's looking like she will be ours. I posted pictures of her on my page, if you want to take a look. The first few days I had nicknamed her Kujo, She was not a happy camper, well she was just really scared and going into Kujo mode was her defense mechanism. She is slowly beginning to trust us, but we have to go very slowly and cannot mix her with the pugs yet.
Well send me a Mona update soon. Talk with ya'll later.
ps I think the new girls name is going to be Skippy
Hi Terry, first of all we want all the best wishes for this year for you and your husband as well for the babies. Hope Puga and Pixie enjoy a good, healthy and happy year and give you both, a lot of love and cheerful time.
We have been kind of busy as my oldest son and his wife, who live in Colombia, S.A., came to visit us for the holidays.
My husband said that Puga's bottom lid runs at night and leaves Puga behind.... lol.
Mona's eyes are still getting this secretion at night, something we were expecting will be done for good after the surgery and correction of her eyelashes and eyelids. But not. Every morning her eyes looks full of noodles, as we call them. We have to clean them really well and apply corn oil drops in each eye to lubricate them, as prescribed by the vet.
Mona got scars form the stitches on her left eye. We don't like the way it looks but....
Otherwise, she is doing good and we have showered her with more love.... as we Pugs lovers do.
Hope Puga gets her problem straighten up soon.
By the way, we noticed that Mona sleeps with her eyes open. Could be a problem but we don't know yet.
Let us know what goes on with Puga.
A hug for everybody, Dave & Pilar
Hey Dave, Pilar & Mona,
Hope ya'll had a blessed Christmas and a Happy New Year. Just checking in to see how sweet Mona was getting along now that a few weeks have passed since her surgery. I must say that I'm a little bit dissapointed in Puga's left eye. The bottom lid still drups somewhat and the eye runs a lot and gets crusted over at night. Not sure what to do. Need to consult my vet but I just keep thinking the only remedy is going to be to redo the eye and I just don't want to put her thru that again. As long as the eyelash problem is fixed I will probably just let it go. We shall see. Send us a update on Mona.
Glad to hear the good report on Mona. Oh the dreaded e-collar. I wish I had taken a video of Puga pushing Pixie around with it, it was so funny. People who aren't pug people just don't understand how we feel about our babies. Pugs are not like other dogs, they are special little people with 4 legs. It's just a connection that can't be explained, only pug people get it.
Hope ya'll have a blessed Christmas.
Terri, Puga & Pixie
Hello!! I'll keep Mona in my thoughts and hopefully next week you all can start having some fun again!! Poor Mona...it's no fun running around with the cone on!! Although Daisy did seem to do okay with hers, it's still a hassle. I cut her cone down quite a bit from the size it was when the vet gave it to us and this made it much easier to drink and move around. Just big enough so she couldn't scratch her face. And I think she had some fun bumping the cat around with the cone too!! LOL Hope all goes well next monday. Be sure to give me an update about Mona. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you all :-)
Hi Dave, Pilar, and Mona!! Daisy poked her eye on a thorn or something on one of our walks and it got pretty bad(eye drops every 2 hours) and wasn't healing. After 3 trips to the vet he decided to have her wear a cone for 2 weeks so she wouldn't injure it any more by scratching. It was actually her right eye that was hurt. The left eye just closed for the flash I think. The right eye was so big because of the dilating drops she was getting. It took about a week or so after stopping the drops and her eye is finally back to normal. Now I just hold my breath every time she sticks her head in the grass to smell something!! Hope little Mona is doing well too!!
"Update my boy milo still has them and is 10 soon. Raw diet calms the severity and frequency but he had one just now. He spaced out, got dizzy and flopped over onto his side. Went rigid for ten seconds and back to normal"
"Oh wow, Im sure i can remember when you got Linus?! Or he was very young. Wowee sure has flown by. How are they doing? Milos stroller has arrived today and I'm so excited to start getting him out and about alot easier now rather than a two…"
"Hi Sophie, it sure has been awhile, your daughter is very cute, and how old is Milo now. I know the time has flown by, Linus will be 10 and Lizzy 9. I hope all is well. This is the first I have been back to Pugslife in a few…"
Sad to say Sophie that most of the migrated to Facebook, I just gave up. Di and I remain I touch by email and I kept in touch with Pam in Arizona, and with Molly in California until she died last year, her and Izzy within months of each…"
"The pushchair came out of Amazon, around £40 Mark, not the greatest but we have had good use if it. We were considering buying a new one but they are really all of a muchness. If Milo is anything like Hektor he will love the fact that he can…"
