Thanks for the comments, Little miss Edith was on her first outing when she met her old uncle who can still show a clean pair of heels when necessary. She was lovely, Hektor does not really make dog friends, he much prefers their owners. His only real girl friend lives round the corner. Rosabella is a big Yorkie Lass who he actually runs around with when they can.
Hi Julie, Bear and Andy must be in seven heaven with their new sister and Sassy could not have a better home with you. Buggy must have been looking down and thinking you could do with a girl this time. Di was wondering as well if she was like Andy and a bit of a poodle. Good that they are all getting on.
Hektor is a lot better, now eating which he was not doing earlier yesterday but he seems to be a bit runny in the motion bracket. I think he will be fine in a little while, dogs are more fortunate than us in having a shorter digestive tract and he is not running all the time, are you enjoying similar weather to Di, we on the other hand have had really cold winds even though it has been mostly dry. We have been trying to get the veggies in to the ground but this evening we have a frost warning so it looks like they will be in the garage instead.
Love to my boys and to my new little lady. Love from Hektor who is presently snoring on his cool pad, why I do not know it is not that warm. I think he likes to warm it up and use it like heating.
Hi Julie. I have no idea why you cannot get me through my email it is zero one not the letter O jus in case that is the problem.
Di has contacted Christine who says she is going to address the problem.
We have similar problems all over with tree branches every where and as you know the last thing you want is your pug walking into one.
We have joined you today with snow, it was freezing yesterday and we got caught coming home in the car with the first snow shower, since then we got a hard frost last night and snow. It has been snowing quite heavily for all of today with a wind getting up. We had a yellow alert for snow and wind, tomorrow is to be almost as bad but Saturday and Sunday at least the snow will go. I was just about set to take Hektor up the local field but I had just suggested it when the heaviest snow storm yet came down. I am watching the sky right now and it is getting ready for another one. So I think regardless of his lordship it will be down the park, I am just watching a couple of dogs running around as I type. I will have to wait so unsocial Hektor can have peace, sometimes he is just terrible.
Well January, soon be spring, maybe sooner for you than us. generally May before it looks like spring and that is usually when it is ending everywhere else.
Well one way or another we can keep in touch, my e-mail is firstname.lastname@example.org so with that if we lose Pugslife we can still speak.
Sorry to hear you are still so cold. It may be that by the end of the week we will join you. Presently we have clear skies which is nice because we were so dark all weekend but cold wind and this is to get stronger.
Hektor seems to have discovered a new lease of life, must be the tiny amount of weight he has lost. Unfortunately he has also discovered his voice as well which is driving us mad presently.
Hi Julie, I have seen the news for around the Eastern States and you seem to have been ahead of the curve. I know you do not need me to tell you to take care because you always do.
We on the other hand have warm moist air coming up from the Azores which is giving us fog and general rawness. It has never brightened up today and the lights have been on in the house all day if we have been in.
Di seems to have snow as well and as I said to her the Central States of Europe are under a blanket as well. We shall see a return of the cold around Thursday but I doubt any snow.
Morning Julie, yes we got a little yesterday, but it cleared by afternoon. We are getting more right now, this one looks to be maybe more then yesterday which was only an inch. We are on that border where we could get the three inches or just the one, so by noon time I guess we will know where we stand with it. Linus and Lizzy do not like the cold, Linus can take the snow better then Lizzy she will run into the garage if the door is open, if not she will not leave the back steps. I have to make her go do her business, and sometimes she will hold until she really has to go. Glad you are handling your weather well, you are the one who has to be really careful as you seem to get it both ways, really cold and the snow. I think we will see 50 again in the middle of this up coming week.
Hi Julie, seems Pugslife is in breakdown modes, could not get to reply to your comment on Pugslife and members. I agree that with simply us three, you, Di and me being on here with Konrad off and on as well it is simply not alive any more. I did get a reply from Jackie and Guido last month but I have no heard from any of our usual and much missed members. I am not on Facebook and have no intention of joining if I can help it. So good luck with getting some back.
New Year was it's usual quiet self, apart from the fireworks which upset Hektor, no not in the usual way he just wants to go out and give them what's what.
How is the snow, we had a day of frost but nothing else and today has been warmer, so much that Hektor has enjpyed being out.
Julie love all the pictures of the kids, I could not respond to all of them, I have having a little trouble opening some of them, my computer, I am sure. Anyway just wanted to tell you I loved seeing them. Hugs Diane
Thanks Julie - interesting that we can organize so many humans to love and protect pugs....also wish I could share my wife's comments to the family members, using the latest pic of our pug Champy...its like using an avatar to make nice and encouraging comments...
Hi Julie! With all that gingerbread and the baked apples, I think we should all be visiting you right now! Izzy is fine. Her typical autumn problem with a few light skin allergies, but otherwise a joy. And she just dances around our apt. :) It's such a lovely day here, I have two windows wide open while wearing a tank top! But the nights are cool, so we really have to snuggle. Hope your snow arrives soon... but without the ice and sleet. Big hugs, Molly and Izzy
Happy December right back at you Julie. Cannot believe another year is just about over. Just sitting here remembering that dad will not be here this year for Christmas, hard to believe it will be a year he is gone come March. The holiday will not be the same with him not here, my mom is having a hard time, just wants Christmas to go on by, and I do understand her feelings, but I tell her we must move onward dad would want that.
Well we are having rain today and tomorrow is suppose to be heavy rain, but then nice after that, so I think I will decorate our front of the house on the weekend. Got my wreath for the front door yesterday, and that is hung up, doing a little at a time, but it will get done, then maybe I will do some pictures.
Sorry Julie, just caught this today, have a wonderful Thanksgiving day tomorrow, and as I said to Di, hear from you after. Away to post a couple of relevant pictures from my Hols. Big hugs and kisses to my lads
Hey Julie, just getting back to you, I saw your messages, but I have been busy like you with my knitting. I know what you mean about the three under the tree, but just think how cute that would be. I can imagine bear being way to big to sit under there, he would I am sure knock everything all over the place. LOL Am getting ready for my Thanksgiving dinner, my sister and her husband and daughter and grandson will be joining me my mom Henry and Carl, so there will be 8 of us this year for dinner. Sister is going to surprise my mom, so it should be nice.
"Boy that was one brave Pug, though not unusual. I have always disagreed with the books which say that Pugs are not guard dog material. Ours is one who would take anyone on who broke into his home. From an early age, still only month old he decided…"
We would like to wish everyone a Happy and Safe Memorial Day Weekend as we all gather together with family and friends let's all remember those who can not be here whether they be persons or those precious four-pawed wonders.We would like to send our love from our home to yours enjoy the weekend and stay safe everyone. Love,Julie & the Furbabies!…See More
