522 Days . . .

. . . but who's counting?

Over the last 522 days, I've shown this face many times.  I've said it's a face only a mother could love :)

Yesterday, DSO and I took Annie 2 1/2 hours south to just outside of Columbus, Ohio.  KaSandra and Travis were anxious to meet Annie, and I think it was love at first sight.  She wanted a pug ~ he wanted a dog that could go for a hike.  I do believe Annie is the perfect fit.  I am so happy for Annie!!!  Aren't they just the cutest family?  Thank you KaSandra and Travis for adopting my Annie Banannie!!!

And while I'm on the subject, PLEASE . . . if you are considering adding a pet to your family, consider adoption.  If you must purchase, DO NOT purchase from a pet store.  Chances are the animal came from a  puppy mill and they are not nice places.

Thanks so much for stopping by.
As always, even though I am pugless, pug hugs : )


  1. everyone has a big smile even annie it must be hard to say good bye though.

  2. What a wonderful forever family for Annie...looks like she's smiling in the picture wit the three of them.

  3. Awwww! What a great looking family! I hope Annie lives happily ever after now!

  6. Awesome news! Ia m so happy for Annie!They look like a great family!Hugs,Jen

  7. I am so glad she found a home. She needed a good home. I agree, it is always important to adopt.
    I always felt so bad that Annie hadn't found her family.
    Good job.

  8. Yay Annie Banannie! At last a furever home! They look like they will be very happy together. Thanks for sharing with us Lauren. I know you are thrilled and I am thrilled to hear it too. Hugs, Lori

  9. Woo Hoo!! Looks like a wonderful family for Annie. So happy for her!!

    Have a good night~Becky

  10. Good for you Annie! The new family looks very happy!

  11. Annie, congratulations! I am so happy and excited for you! What a wonderful furever family, a win win situation for all. I admit I am going to miss that beautiful face of your's. Hugs, Julie.

  12. Our area does not have many dogs available. My guy is older now and sick, so we are giving him meds and loving him and as long as he is happy and content, we will keep up the treatments. He is a border collie, so hard to see him sick, he loves to play but now he can't even hear,so you can't even talk to him, which he loves.


  13. Oh, you're pug less today but I doubt that will last long! You're such a good soul, there will be a little homeless pug knocking on the door of your heart soon!!!

  14. How wonderful for Annie.
    You have such a big loving heart.
    Woolie Hugs

  15. So happy Annie found her forever home! Warm Blessings!~Amy

  16. Aaaaaw! They are a cute family!
    Glad Anie has found a forever home at long last.

    I know you will miss her, but I'm sure you won't be pugless for long.
    There is always another one needing a loving heart.

  17. So glad Annie found her forever home! Also, thanks again for reminding people to adopt pets....there are so many out there who need good homes. My happiest day was when our local Petland went out of business!

  18. Oh...I'm going to miss that Annie girl! They look like a happy family!

  19. Oh Lauren, so happy Annie has a forever home, but I will miss her beautiful face, I hope she will be so loved ....I will always rescue a throwaway, Hugs Francine.

  20. AMEN.... Poor Annie, she was so patient waiting for just the right home. I hope that she'll be very happy with a nice little family.

    I'm so glad for all of you. I'm sure that they will keep you in touch of how well she is adjusting. Her tongue has even straightened for the photo opp.

    One more feather in your hat Lauren for being so kind to pugs.

  21. sooo happy for annie and all! sending prayers for ellies sure she is lonesome. now with annie gone. love all the show of rugs and really like your pup rug in the previous post. enjoy your day lauren! i woke to -22 below not including the wind chill....

  22. Oh Lauren I'll bet you're so happy for Annie but also a little sad. I hope she is very happy with her new family and adapts well.

  23. Congratulations!!!!! Annie has her forever home now. And one more to go.


  24. Congratulations, Lauren. Please be sure to have updates on Annie in her new home. She is and will always be part of our family as well.
    Also, thanks for plugging adoptions. Through the years, all but three of my dogs have been adoptees and those were back when I entertained ideas of becoming a breeder. So glad I decided not to as I am happier now finding a dog who really needs my loving care. You are a great example of the foster moms who keep our loving dogs until they go to the right forever home.


  25. Congratulations to Annie. You're going to miss that little girl. Thank you for all you do for our poor little "furry kids"....I sure wish they could talk. It would make things so much easeier wouldn't it? You're an angel!!


  26. I am happy that Annie finally found her furever home! I am sure you will miss her, having been with you for so long, I am sure it is hard to let them go! But there will be another to take her place! You do a good thing!
