Social network for pugs and their people.
Bella and I just came back from a very busy weekend. I turned 21 on Sunday and the family loaded up and drove to Grapevine for the Pug-O-Ween festival. It was a fun time, Bella was dressed as a purple butterfly and the place was full of adorable pugs, both big and small. There was a costume contest, which we didn't enter due to getting to the event late.
My mom got me a pug scarf, t-shirt, coasters, and small wall hanging. My apartment has somehow developed a dog theme without me realizing it, from the pug picture above my couch, to the chili pepper pug salt and pepper shakers. I have to put my foot down before it goes any further. My family is concerned, but it is partly their fault, I don't go out and get some of these things myself. Who knows, maybe I'll find someone who understands and will love my dog adorned abode. Until then, I will continue to be perceived as a crazy dog girl.
Anyways, back to Pug-O-Ween. When I say loaded up the family, I mean the whole family. My aunt, her two sons, her husband, my grandmother, my mom, my brother, Bella, and myself. We took two vehicles and DFW Pug Rescue received a sizable donation from just our entry fees. All proceeds from the event went to the rescue, which made my birthday that much better. I wish I could say that Bella had a good time, but she didn't. Bella was a bummer pug all day. She was very excited when we got there, bounding off of the car in her costume and walking with that pep in her step all the way inside. Then something must have happened to change her mood. She didn't want to associate with the other pugs, she wanted me to carry her, and Bella was just not a happy pug. I thought it had something to do with the loud noise from the announcer, Bella is not a fan of loudness and shows disapproval when the car radio volume is too high. Also, she wasn't "the pug". When we go to dog parks or out, she is "the pug". At Pug-O-Ween, there were sooo many pug babies getting attention. Bella was just another curly tail and squished face in the crowd. Hopefully next year she lightens up, because next year, Bella is going to win the costume contest, and sweep the pug races. Training begins today, and our costume ensemble is going to take the cake :)
Update on blood test: I'm not sure if I posted before the results of Bella's blood test. Today I called the doctor back, she had contacted me before to say that everything was normal, but she had to speak to me. I thought something was wrong, but she just told me everything was great, almost perfect, but if Bella continued to have seizures, we could treat them. I'm so happy for Bella's health, but after catching her drinking from a glass of water on the coffee table today, all is far from perfect with my bratty puggy.
