How to Properly Eat Ice Cream by Linus Puggy

Hi there, this here is Linus Super Pup.
Today's lesson is how to eat ice cream
like a champion puggy. First you find the right bowl.
Next, you instruct your hooman to fill it
to the brim with your favorite flavor.

Next you express your appreciation by making loud
smacking noises. Be sure to use your face as a handy
ice cream scoop, getting bits of yumminess way up
into the snorfley wrinkle above your itty bitty nose.

Uncle Howie taught me that this is a good place to store
snacks fur later consumption, plus the ice cream ferments
and gives off a pleasing cheesy aroma after a few days there.
This concludes your Lesson Fur Today on how to properly
eat Puggy Ice Cream.

Working Fur the Snuggle Puggle

Eduardo Puggle, CEO

Hey Eduardo, Mom said it's TUESDAY so
we decided to help her in the kitchen for

It's a tough job, but as Bossman EduardoPuggle
likes to say, "That's why they call it work!!!"

The best part about helpin in the kitchen
is licking the bowl!

Lickin the spoon is not fur
sissypugs, either. It's a big job
and it requires total focus and

There's always that tough spot just around
the back that's so hard to reach....

The best part is mom doesn't have to
wash the dishes after. We've made sure
they're bran spankin clean!!!

Annie's Blushing Valentine

Annie is not known for sharing.

From Anniebelly Bossybritches:

I took time out from beating up my stinky brother Howie today to pick up a very special delivery. Handsome Bajas left me this message today for Valentine's. It's obvious he adores me, and who can blame him? *bats eyelashes* I know all you puggy girls are lookin' at Bajas and thinkin' how cute he is, just remember you can look but don't sniff. He belongs to me!!

I love you Bajas, my little hunney bunney puggy of love...

Howie's Thoughts on Valentines and Romantical Things

Ever since I got this new tie from Aunty Laura, I've been rethinking the whole Valentine thing. After all, there is food involved, yes? Cuppycakes and crunchy heart candy thingies that occasionally fall on the floor to get eaten by mooo-wah... (That's french fur "me")!

Well then the Mom took off my new Valentine tie and said THIS TIE was fur going to WORK. WORK? what the heck is that? I been working fur Eduardo Snuggle Puggle, but accordin' to the terms of the Puggle Contract, I didn't have to actually go nowhere fur that.

I mean, yes, I did some PERCH NAPPIN fur the Snuggle Puggle, which was actually multi-taskin cuz I was fartin too. But this whole GO TO work thing has me pur-plexed. Do they have food at this place called work?

Remembering Two Little Angels


Winnie loved her Aunty Sharon, who brought
her beautiful prezzies, like this velour blue dress.

Winnie says thanks fur the dress Aunty Sharon!

One more smoochy for Aunty Sharon,
who color coordinated her wardrobe with Wiggles.

These are some of my favorite pictures from April 2005 when Sharon and her little Gracie came over for a playdate. Sharon always brought presents for the puggies, and Winnie Wiggles is pictured wearing the lovely velour dress Sharon brought her. Winnie especially loved the dress Sharon brought her because it showed off her rolls and rolls of jiggley loveliness.

Winnie and Gracie both went to the rainbow bridge last year, leaving broken hearts and many tears in their wake. Sharon and I miss our girls, but we remember them every day with so much love. These pictures always make me smile. They captured such happy moments.

Six Things That Make Howie Happy

Punchy sent me a note that I gotta report
six things that make me happy. I'm thinkin
real hard about it, and I think I got it now.

My friend the kibble container, he
makes me very happy. I like to spend
time with him in his pantry house from
time to time just to say hello.

Meaty muffins. yummmmmmmm. What's
not to like about meaty muffins? They got meat!
mmmm. They got muffin! mmmmmmm

Birthday cookies are also something that
make me real happy. Even if it's not my
birthday, if you were to say, send me a cookie,
I'd be real happy. Just speaking rhetorically that is.

Barkin at them dang birds. I do enjoy
doing that quite a bit.

Chewin on stuff I'm not sposed to be
chewin on always makes me happy.

Yummy chewy bones also happen to
make me very happy.

Here's my happy face. Mom says I had
just had a bath in this picture, but I don't
believe her fur a second. Why on earth
would I be happy about that???

Linus showin Uncle Howie his good side

Much to Annie's consternation, Scout decides

So, do you think this will earn us extra treats later?

Scout tells Linus that girls rule, and he should just get used to it.

Howie thinkin about hidin under the bed.

Okay you pups. Listen up to Uncle Howie.
When the cookie jar rattles,
run head over heels into the house and
knock over anydoggy that gets in your way.
That's the first lesson yew need to learn around here.

Scout sure does got some sharp teefies.

Mmmm, Scout's elbow tastes delishush!

From Uncle Java:
Um, you young folks might want to settle down a little.
Somepuggy could get hurt!

Uh oh, the little one in pink is looking me in the eye.


Scout discovers the weakest link!

The whole meetup crowd!
