Is it too early for Christmas?

The Papas are celebrating early. This time of the year gets so crazy so we had the pugs’ picture taken early at McKamey Care & Adoption Center. Happy Holidays from Violet & Lola

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.

Today, Victoria Stilwell was at McKamey Animal Care & Adoption Center talking about positive reinforcement dog training. She is an amazing speaker, trainer, and advocate. She also did a book signing-that’s me in the photo with her!

Originally uploaded by Papa’s Pugs

I guess it is a good thing that I am so far behind in my blogging because I got my mom one of these sculptures for Christmas (hers was of a cat) so I really could not “advertise” what I had gotten her back in October. But anyway…a friend of mine and I went to the McKamey Animal Care and Adoption Center’s Paws Around the World event. It was very nice and worth every center for the price of a ticket. They have fabulous buffet tables set up with different themes of food. A local artist had created these metal sculptures as center pieces on each table. You could “adopt” a dog or a cat and the money went for a good cause-real dogs and cats that need homes. The real center of attention was the guest speaker, Victoria Stilwell from “It’s Me or the Dog” television show. She is well known positive reinforcement dog trainer, but she is also an advocate for animal welfare. More about Victoria Stilwell in the next post…

Doggie Paddle at Warner Park

Yes, the dogs can go in the pool! I think that this was our 3rd or 4th year for Doggie Paddle at Warner Park. On the last day of the season, Warner Park opens the pool to dogs and their owners to come swimming. There is a small admission fee and all the proceeds go to The McKamey Care & Adoption Center. This year Lola and I went to enjoy some sun and then cool off in the water. I will readily admit that Lola does not love it, but it is fun for me to take her so she endures it.
