Neda..your legacy will live on

Tuesday, April 12th, 2011

This story comes from the war torn country of Afghanistan. I can’t even wrap my head around all the conflict that encompasses that nation, but I can wrap my head around the story of Neda. I only know a portion of the story and I am going to share what I know. A little white puppy was found and taken in by a man who opened his arms and his heart to her. She was named Neda. Neda was loved and cared for; a plan was formed to get her from Afghanistan to the USA and out of harms way. Sadly, Neda got sick and didn’t make it. I can only imagine the sorrow for all of those who knew and loved her. The loss was immense, but she will never be forgotten. RIP Sweet Neda.

Through The Puppy Rescue Mission Neda’s Fund was created to help other dogs get much needed basic medical care while they are waiting to be transported to safety. Today, April 12th, marks their one year anniversary. You can help by spreading the word for and donating to help get dogs (and cats) to safety.

Peaches loves her breakfast

It didn’t take Peaches long to learn that on the weekends, Papa’s pugs get eggs for breakfast. She is very impatient and will bark at me to hurry up! She absolutely cracks me up in that I can just imagine her saying “I’m hungry”!!! Disclaimer for the photo below, that was eggs for all the pugs: Lola, Baby Girl, Violet, and Peaches.

Bruce-get out jail free

Monday, April 11th, 2011

On Saturday, Bruce broke loose from jail. Okay, it was not jail and he didn’t do anything but wag his tail. Volunteers from two states came together to rescue him. Bruce was turned into a local shelter because his family could not afford to take care of him. Sadly he is heart worm positive and the treatment can be very expensive. McKamey Animal Care & Adoption Center contacted Southeast Pug Rescue to see if we had a spot for Bruce. So with a lot of emails, a lot of planning, and a lot of miles, Bruce was safely transport to a foster home where he will be loved and cared for until he can get a clean bill of health.

Thanks to Trish, Tori, Susan, and Pat for helping to rescue this guy.

I love my Violet

Let me count the ways that I love Violet..

She has this awesome cobby body that has the cutest wobble when she walks.

She will give me kisses (okay I do put my face in hers so she probably just does that so I’ll leave her alone).

She will take a flying leap into my arms from the top of our 5 stairs to get to her food bowl. It is insane that she won’t go down the 5 stairs, but will climb them just fine. Who cares, I need to get a video of her jumping.

She will lie on her back cuddled up in my arms for hours.

I could go on, but I’ll save more for another post.

Note from Peaches

Hey y’all it’s me Peaches. Whew, things have been really busy at the ‘tonk and I have been working myself to the bone. I have even lost some weight on a low carb diet. A couple of people have noticed and said that I look really good (that made me blush). I did spend this past Sunday with my BFFs as it was Lola’s Birthday. We got our hair and nails done and just relaxed. That’s exactly how I like to spend my day off, hanging with the girls. Well, that’s about all for now. XOXO Peaches.

Happy 7th Birthday Lola

Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday Dear Lola, Happy Birthday to you! We love you Lola Bug!

Hey everyone, my 7th Birthday was Saturday, but my mom was too busy so we had to wait until Sunday to celebrate. I got my very own candle that looked like a cake. I sniffed it, but did not try to eat it. The best part was that I got a bone with my name on it written in purple icing. I was nice and let Peaches have some and she tried to hog the whole thing. My sisters and I got to play outside since the weather was so nice. My mom did give us a bath, which was really not my idea of a fun party. I can’t wait to see what this year brings. Love, Lola
