Fatties in Fetties - GQ Pug Edition

vest from Aunty Melissa and
Cousin Emmypants

Howie sez Annie looks like an
overripe tomato in her new fettie
but Annie sez she is Da Bomb.

Howie aka GQ Puggy

The three fatties in their fetties from
Aunty Melissa and Cousin EmmyPants

The most exciting prezzies arrived at the Medina Foster Home for Wayward Pugs! Bran new sweater vests from Aunty Melissa and Cousin Emmy of PugNotes just in time to ring in the New Year! Howie enjoyed a special bonus moment of tearing up the tissue wrapping. Melissa of Pugnotes creates amazing designs and critter art and we have loved and adored her and her Activity Director and Number One Studio Assistant Emmy-Pants fur just about furever.

What a wonderful gift, we could not believe our eyes! Annie was feeling especially cute in her red outfit and immediately began shopping for matching shoes. Howie quickly discovered that wearing a fabulous blue sweater attracted treats from admiring hoomans and Java gave his beautiful orange sweater three toes up and circle snaps shortly before falling into a post-brekkies coma on his favorite pillow snuggled in the warm, soft outfit from his Aunty.

Thank you so much Melissa for these beautiful sweater vests! The fatties never looked so good!

Annie's Early Christmas Prezzy

This here is Anniebelly!

*blows kisses* Do you notice anything different about me?? Besides the fact I am wearing my adorable Christmas coat I mean. *bats eyelashes* Look closely, do you see anything PINK with HEARTS on it??? Something that might make a little puggy girl's heart go pitty pat if she were to receive it in the MAIL from her hunky hunky puggy boyfriend Bajas???

Well if THAT doesn't make your heart go pitty pat, here is something that will. Have you ever seen such a dreamboat Santy? This here is my boyfriend Bajas from way across the world. He sent me this sweet new prezzy collar and a card expressing his love and affection for me. And who can blame him? I am, after all, puggy-cuteness in every way! *Howie makes gagging motion with his paw*

Thank you Bajas Hunny Bunny for my howliday gift, I love you sweetie! I will airmail you a little kissy as a reward. xoxoxo

Thinking About an Angel at Christmas

The Jiggliest Angel

This week 2 years ago was the last good week little Winnie Wiggles had during her three month fight with GME encephalitis. Winnie was my heart, my velcro girl, and my best friend. My fondest hope is that I will see her again someday.

Heavenly Missive

Whippy creme and scrambled eggs are
Way up here in Heaven
In case you too
See only blue and
wonder what you're gettin

They're other things like angel wings
With fur that's never sheddin'.
There's no disease or achin knees
and wrinkles smooth and silken

I fall asleep and dream of you
and times when we were given
to sprint and run and tug on toys
and dash to mom for lovin.

Tonight no tears oh Howie dear
because I have been taken
I’ll kiss your cheek and whiskers sweet
And heal the ache within you.

The pain it fades and goes away
And even loss feels lighter
When time moves on then pushes back
All that separates us.

Ony the Pug - One Step at a time

Ony and Melissa, his foster mom

From Melissa, Ony's Foster Mom:
"Ony grows stronger every day and makes me realize that
hope is always there and to never give up.
I'm not giving up on him no matter what
because he has not given up on me."

Ony the Pug is 7 years old and has a hard time walking and standing up. Ony's family said they were moving and could not take him with them. He came to Dallas Fort Worth Pug Rescue about a week ago and was taken to our neurologist's office for a myelogram and a CT scan Wednesday. This will tell us if surgery will help him.

Dr. Ducote and her staff were encouraged with the progress Ony has made under his foster mom Melissa's care. He is now standing and walking - or trying to walk. Previously, he was incontinent and now is letting Melissa know when he needs to go out. She carries him out to the grass and he will relieve himself and walk over to the edge of her patio to be let back in. Melissa says he can maneuver on grass better than floors or concrete.

Ony is another little soul who gives those around him courage. We are going to do everything we can to help him get back his quality of life and find a loving home. We are so thankful to Melissa for the love she is giving him in his foster home.

A Handsome Cheesy Pug

Java Cheesy
Main Street Vet Clinic
Flower Mound, Texas

This here is Java Cheesy

I don't get to write often because I live with Annie and Howie and well, need I say more?? Yesterday I went to see Dr. Carter and got my teeth cleaned. This picture was taken by one of my adoring lady friends at the vet. Notice my minty clean breath? *breathes into your face with his minty clean breath*

Now I can blow kisses to all my honeys without fear of embarrassing bad breath. While I was asleep, Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman tickled my ears and found some cheese growing germs in there. They gave me a shot in my bee-hind and some pills. Imagine my worry to learn that my essential cheesiness could be taken away just like that? But Mom said that she is confident that after all this medicine is gone, my cheese will return again, just like the sunshine.

*eyes droop* Well footheater friend is calling and my tum is full of Cowboy Cookout stew. We'll talk more after naptime, I promise.

Anniebelly aka Santa's Little Helper

This here is Anniebelly. I'm helping out around the
house today with the howliday undecorating activities.

This is little bear is soft and just the right
size for AnnieChewin.

If I only had thumbies, I could
free it from this here tree!

I suppose I'll just have to be happy with
chewing on it from a standing position.
*dramatic sigh*

It's just so hard to walk by without giving
it a good tug, though.

This is me with my Helpful Face on. Mommy bought this little
bear to help out children in emerging nations affected by HIV/AIDS.
Check out its home at The Mother Bear Project! Thank you Aunty Melissa and
EmittPants for all you do to help little peoples of the world.

Oscar The Pug, VIP

A day without Oscar is
like a day without sunshine!

We have the addition of a fourth little soul visiting this week - Oscar the Pug. Oscar first came to stay at the Medina Foster Home for Wayward Pugs three years ago after his family could no longer care for him. He was 11 years old when he first stepped paw inside my door.

As you can see, Oscar went on to great fame and fortune after his adoption by his furever family. Last year, he was selected as Mister January for the Dallas Fort Worth Pug Rescue Calendar. He is, undeniably, a hunky, good looking fellow, and his new family has him absolutely spoiled, as it should be.

If I had three wishes, one of them would be that every little creature, every cat and every dog, would have a safe home and loving family to care for them. Please remember animal rescue when you make out your gift lists at the end of this year. Every rescue organization is in greater need now than we have ever been before. And while you're at it, give your critters big hugs for me!

Oscar was Mister January for the Pug Rescue
Calendar last year. He is, after all,
a rather hunky, good looking fellow!

Me giving Oscar goodbye smoochies as he
prepared to leave on his adoption day 3 years ago.
To my right is my sweet velcro pug, Winnie Wiggles.

Howie Concerned About Annie's Crooked Head

This here is Howie:

I am still in charge of the blog even though I let Maw upload that mooshy picture of Java on his birthday. I decided to let that slide since we all got extra treats that day and all. I posted this here picture to show you guys my weird sister AnnieFattySmellyBelly with the crooked head. She is the fat one on the left.

I am real worried about her crooked head and I seg-jested to mama that we send her off to some special hospital in the Alps real soon so they could examine her and keep her for a few months of close bob-servation.

Maw acted like she didn't hear me. Can you believe it??? Anyway I also heard through the grapevine that my pal DozerPants escaped from prison and went off in search of mini meatloafs. DozerMan, if yew are readin this and you FIND them meatloafs, you can hide out at my house. I'll let you have Annie's pillow after she is exported to Switzerland.

Java Cheesy the Birthday Boy

Today is my birthday. As you can see,
I am a mature, handsome puggy man.

This is me when I was little. I was the
first puggy to join the Pugpant Household
and trained mom on all the important rules
of puggy ownership.

And because I was numero uno puggy, mom
had no clue about portion control, as you can
see from my belly. Alas, those days of endless
eating are over.

Howie Takes Over Blog and Posts His Favorite Pictures of Hisself

This here is Howie.

I'm takin over this here blog cause my maws a big LOSER. *makes L shape over his forehead, despite his lack of thumbs* She has been hangin out in da art studio makin a mess instead of lettin me check in on my mail and my girlfriends and sech.

Here is da first picture I am puttin on my blog since it is my favorite. I'm jest gonna post all my favorite pictures of myself from now on and pretend AnniSmelly has moved to Montana with PudgePants.

Aunty Mindy made me this here BAD PUGGY T shirt a long time ago. I am too fat to wear it now but I still love it. It's much better than that other thing maw was gonna make me wear fur PugOWeen but we won't talk about that. *gives Anniebelly the evil googley eye*

Maw made me wear this costume last year and I admit am am hansum but the hat kept fallin into my eyes and blockin my view of the food bowl so I ate it. Maw howled and hollered when she found out I ate the hat but it was leather so it was protein and good fur me. She needs to go eat some fiber and calm down or somethin.

If yew are gonna be at PugOWeen look for my maw. She will be the crazy one in the green T shirt runnin around takin pictures. She said I have to stay home cuz I don't know how to behave in public. Have you ever heard such hooey in your life??? sheesh.

An International Pug With Style and Charisma - Bajas

Annie's one true love, Bajas
Fearless and Handsome

An award for Annie
From Bajas Puggy

This here is Anniebelly

I was just doing my regular online shopping this morning on the PugNetwork when I discovered this amazing prezzy from Bajas, an international pug of intrigue who makes my heart go pitty pat.

Thank you for the cookies Bajas! *blows Bajas kisses* They are delish. I'm not real good at sharing, just ask the Stinky Boys. So I shall keep these all for myself and think of Bajas as I consume each one without inhaling, chewing, or pausing for a single breath.
