This Here Is My New Sweetie

Have you ever seen a more lovely pug?
Oh how I adore her mug.
Her tongue is such a wonderous thing.
What happiness the sight of her brings.
Dearest Tuni, you're the one for me.
My love and kisses I send to thee!

My heart has been stolen.

Christmas Photo 2009

Mom got a photo that she was happy with.
She told dad that she could see the wonder
of Christmas in our eyes.
Dad said that what we were seeing
was him holding TREATS.

They are both right!
Wishing you all a
Very Merry Christmas:-)

XXX Christmas Photo

Hello everyone, its Gracie here...
Mom thought that she had the perfect photo
for our Christmas Cards.
She dressed us up in our new duds
(made by the famous Punchy)
and had us sit under our beautiful
Christmas Tree.
She double checked the picture
and she is soooooooooooooooo
glad that she took a really close look before printing them
all out and mailing them.
This is the perfect example of just how gross boy dogs are!

Check it out.
George here...I'm not gross you butthead.
I just made sure that we'll be getting more TREATS.
Mom will have to dress us up again and give us
goodies for sitting under this stupid tree.
And what good is a tree when you can't even tinkle on it - huh?
And it doesn't even smell like a tree.

Gracie here....George is a DD (dumb dog).
George here...who are you calling a DD?
It sure enough better not be me.
I'll tell mom, and I'm her favorite!
Gracie {sigh}...beam me up Scottie, cause I'm ready to go.

I Like My New Bed

I have terrible allergies.
I sneeze and cough all the time.
Mom was worried that my old bed was making them worse.
So, she got me a new one!

See how big it is?

She says that it's a crib mattress, whatever the heck that is.
Mom sprayed the mattress down with disinfectant.
(It sure doesn't smell as good as my old bed :-(
Then she put something called a mattress cover on it,
and topped that off with new sheets!

Now have to take a pink pill every morning
and every night.
Pink pills are perfect for girl dogs like me :-)

Mom hopes that the new bed and the pink pills
will help me to feel better.
My mom loves me a lot!

Nap Philosophy

Naps are a wonderful thing!

But you should always take them
with one eye open!

Yeah - we're still here.

Sorry that it's been so long between posts.
Mom has the pawsword, so we have
to wait for her to let us on to the

George - I got very very sick during the summer.
Over half of my trachea collapsed.
I coughed and coughed, and mom said
that I sounded as if I had the Croup.
I couldn't go outside so I had
to use my litterbox all the time.
I also got put on a DIET!

I'm doing so much better now.
We went to see Dr. Denezak last week.
Just for our 6 month check up.
Mom thought that I might have
lost 2 or 2.5 lbs.
I got on the scale...
I lost 4 whole pounds.
Everyone was jumping up and down
and telling me what a good job
I had done. It was waaaaaay cool.

Here is my new skinny self!

Now it's safe for me to get my teeth cleaned again.
They will use a different protocol on me
and I'll have both Dr. Denezak and
Dr. Rushing taking care of me.
Mom can't wait,
cause she says I have bad breath.

Gracie - Yep that's for sure!!!

George - Butt out, this is my post.
I'll let you know how things go.
I have to take
antibiotics for a week,
and then I'll go get them cleaned.

Lori, over at Pugsplace, posted this yesterday.

I copied it word for word!

Thanks Lori

H.R. 3501, the Humanity and Pets Partnered Through the Years (HAPPY) Act.

This Act would amend the Internal Revenue Code to allow an individual to deduct up to $3,500 for "qualified pet care expenses" for a legally owned, domesticated, live animal.

As Americans trim budgets to make ends meet, innocent animals should not go without adequate care. Even a small tax deduction for responsible pet owners will go a long way to meet the needs of companion animals, ease the tax burden of those who own a pet (63 percent of all households) and may even encourage more people to provide loving homes to the countless animals that fill America's shelters.

Please take a moment to sign the petition and urge your representative to co-sponsor H.R. 3501.

Go Here to send a letter!

Pass it along.

Here is a copy of the actual HAPPY bill:

(b) Clerical Amendment- The table of sections for part VII of subchapter B of chapter 1 of such Code is amended by striking the last item and inserting the following new items:

I George - Alas My Poor Life

I've had a ruff week.
I've had to get a BATH:-(
Seth put me in mom's shower and then hosed me down...If that wasn't bad enough, he poured soap on me...it smelled like coconut (not stinky at all;-(

I don't care for the fluffy look!

But now, at least I'm dry!

Then on Thursday night I started coughing really hard. Mom said that I sounded like I had The Croup. I didn't know what that was, but it sounded like poop - so I thought "that's a good thing". But apparently not...cause I had to go to the vets office on Friday.
Now don't get me wrong - I like going to the vets.
They are always really nice to me, and there is LOTS of good stuff to sniff...
...but mom looked so worried.
I got poked and prodded and ex-rayed.
Dr. Danezac said the good news, was that I didn't have peemonia.
The bad news, is that 1/2 of my trachea has collapsed.
Now, I'm not supposed to get hot or excited...
... and I have to take more pills ...
...and I have to go on another D*I*E*T.
I got a new bag of food and some cans of food too.
Mom started me on it last night, and I must say that the stuff tasted pretty good
I heard her say that she's starting me on green beans tonight.
What the heck did I do to deserve that?

It's soooooooooooooo hot here that the vet said that
I can only go outside to potty really early in the morning...
... like before the sun is up (and darn it - I like to sleep in)...
... and then way after it gets dark in the evening.
And I can't play around and sniff stuff - I just have to go out and get it done real quick.
The rest of the time I have to use my litter box!

Well enough about me...
...get your cameras out!
