103011 BABY GIRL (6)

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.

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

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.

Medical Miracle

It has been three years since Baby Girl was at the University of Tennessee Small Animal Clinic to receive a titanium trachea stent. The average life expectancy after receiving the stent is 2 years, well, Baby Girl has shown that statistics wrong. This photo was taking in the hotel room the night before we met with the vet staff. I hugged BG tight and just cried that night. I had no idea what the next day would bring for her. It’s been a journey to say the least, but every day is a celebration that she is here with us.

It’s been three years since that fateful day when I went to pick up Baby Girl. For those of you who aren’t familiar with her story, she was an owner surrender into rescue. I drove to meet the family and when I got there, I saw the tiniest pug sitting in the back seat. She may have been small, but she made up for it in sass. The family was really sad that they had to give her up, but she was too sick for them. From that day on, she has made a huge impact in our lives. We love you Baby Girl!!!

Please excuse the food on her nose, face, and ears. She loves to eat!

Super Big & Teeny Tiny

We have nick named Peaches “Super Big.” Violet’s nick name is “Big ‘N” so when Peaches came to us my husband would say the Big One needs XX. And I would say which Big One; which he would reply Super Big. Baby Girl’s nick name is “Teeny Tiny”. She is only 10lbs. This afternoon I caught Super Big and Teeny Tiny taking a nap together today. This poor dog bed is probably only big enough for Baby Girl, but the two of them managed to squeeze in next to each other. Or rather Baby Girl on top of Super Big Peaches.

John Paul Pet Day or bath day

I use Paul Mitchell hair products and my pugs use John Paul Pet products. While giving the girls a bath, I strategically placed their John Paul Pet oatmeal shampoo & conditioner in the background. Of course, Baby Girl was her usual obstinate self in the sink. Lola acts like I am torturing her. Violet just stands there like an angel and lets me lather her up and condition her down. I was afraid that Peaches would not fit in the sink, but she did and she was a good girl. It was an afternoon of pugs getting their hair “did” and pawdicures.

This is what my pugs do in the morning

On any given Saturday morning while I am running around trying to get laundry started, dishes done, making a grocery list, etc; my pugs just lounge around on the couch. On a side note, I got the round dog bed that Baby Girl is sitting in at a dog show about 3 years ago. I bought it because of the cute canine print, but it has been the most covet dog bed by all the pugs. Thankfully, it is small enough that it can go in the washer because it gets a lot of use. We call it Baby Girl’s nest because she looks like a tiny bird sitting in it. Also we refer to her as a baby bird when she is squawking orders at us.

Merry White Christmas

Residents of Chattanooga, TN woke up to a White Christmas this year. I could not believe my eyes when we got up this morning. I was so excited, but the pugs not so much. Lola did run around some (she was wearing the pink coat). Baby Girl was just too cold (wearing the brown coat). And Violet was not fond of the snowing falling in her face (wearning the green coat). Do you know how hard it is to get three pugs to potty when it is in the 20s and snowing?

We look Violet to the beach for Thankgiving holidays. She is the most perfect pug. We are pretty sure she though that she was adopted by a family that lived in Florida. Sadly our vacation was short lived and we had to go back to Tennessee where it was freezing cold.
