Originally uploaded by Papa’s Pugs

Sadly, just a couple of days after turning 13 years old, Baby Girl’s health took a turn for the worse. With a heavy heart, we had to make the decision to ease her from this world. Run free little girl, run to the Rainbow Bridge where you can breathe easy and walk without pain. The past three and a half years have revolved around taking care of Baby Girl and making sure that she was happy and healthy. And then suddenly, our world has become so normal. The tears are still flowing as we adjust to life without that tiny bundle of a pug.

We are forever grateful to SouthEast Pug Rescue & Adoption for bringing Baby Girl into our lives. Without the dedication of volunteers, Baby Girl would not have had the opportunity to come into rescue. Without the financial support, pugs would not have the opportunity for rehabilitation and the hope to be adopted to a new loving family. www.rescuepug.com

We would also like to thank all of the support we received from our collapsing trachea group-Yorkie Angel Patrol.

Happy 13th Birthday Baby Girl

Baby Girl turned 13 years old on October 28th. We didn’t take our official pictures until the 30th though. We were so happy to celebrate such a milestone.

Pugfest! This event is the first thing that goes on my calendar each year. It is SouthEast Pug Rescue & Adoption’s biggest fundraiser. All I can say is that if you haven’t been, you are missing out! There are costume contests, vendors with all kinds of pug items, tables with SEPRA t-shirts, silent auction items, and raffles for fantastic items. But the best thing is ALL the pugs! There are pugs in all shapes and sizes. www.rescuepug.com

Gus is the most amazing pug

In October, we made our annual pilgrimage to Georgia for SouthEast Pug Rescue & Adoption’s Pugfest. The Friday night before the big event we met the most amazing pug-Gus! Gus is 15 years and 10 months old that was rescued by SEPRA and adopted by Jonathan ten years ago. Although, he can’t walk due to a bad back, he is carted around in little red wagon sporting some serious style. Gus is one of those pugs that you see and you want to hold and cuddle and snuggle, which is exactly what I did to him. Gus travelled all the way from Florida with Jonathan as his driver. Instead of Driving Miss Daisy, it was Driving Mister Gus. Jonathan is an amazing caregiver for Gus and is an inspiration to all pug people. You can tell a pug and a person made a huge impression on you if you are still talking about how lucky you were to meet them weeks later. If you would like a little piece of Gus, you can order one of SEPRA’s 2012 calendars where he is the cover pug. www.rescuepug.com
