Ellie's New Mom ~



I planned to do a witty post telling you about Ellie's new furever mom, but there is nothing witty to tell.  As most of you know, I have been "Ellie sitting" since Christmas Day.  Her mom was in a nursing home getting rehab and hoping to go home soon.  Unfortunately, she passed away unexpectedly.  It still is hard to believe.  
Judy adopted Ellie last year from a local rescue. This little thing had been found wandering the streets of Cleveland.  No one knows for how long, but it's a wonder she survived.  Oh, my how my friend LOVED this little girl.  She would just light up every time we visited.  If I hadn't become her furever mom, she would have been returned to rescue, had to adapt to another foster home and then to another forever home.  I'm sure she would have adjusted, but I just couldn't do that to her.  So this pug gal has adopted a little Jack Russell Terrier.  I will still volunteer with Ohio Pug Rescue, just not fostering.  I'll keep my blog name as Rugs and Pugs because Rugs and a Jack Russell Terrier just doesn't rhyme very well :)


Thanks so much for stopping by!
Pug (and JRT) hugs :)

  10. Somehow, I knew the ending to this story. Hmmmm....so, if you're not the evil one, does that really mean I am ??? ;o) Seriously....you have a heart of gold....and Ellie is blessed to have landed in your care. What a lucky lil' rascal she is. Her "other" mom is probably smirking down on you as we speak.... Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin

  28. Lauren,
    Congratulations on being owned by a Jack Russell Terrier. Honestly, if you coudn't have kept Ellie, I was so tempted to raise my hand and offer a home here in Florida as I loved my JRT, Molly, and hated when she went to the rainbow bridge. Ellie sounds like Molly in not being a hyper-active yapping JRT. Molly was very mellow and a snuggle-bun.
    Give Ellie a biscuit from me.

  30. It's not about the breed you love, it's about the love you breed. Glad she found her new home where she'll be loved and adored and offer you her love in return. Win-win.
