Odds and Ends and an Annie Update ~

Here is a recent update I got from Annie's furever mom.  As most of you will remember, she is the pug-wannabee that I fostered for 16 months through Ohio Pug Rescue.  Lucky for her to be in the most perfect, loving home.  It was worth the wait!

"All is going very well with our little family! Annie is such a sweetie pie! :) I just got back from taking her to the farmers market and Starbucks-she loves the attention. Yesterday she went to school with me and the kids just loved her to pieces!! Also, she hiked 10 miles with us one day-she is a trooper! We always watch her really close to be sure she isn't overheating, but she keeps trucking right along. She also enjoys drinking from all the fresh running creeks-who would have thought a pug could hike like that. :) Sadly the weather is starting to get really hot so we'll probably be doing fewer hikes with our girl-need to keep her safe out there. 

We're still working in teaching her some manners. You wouldn't believe how accustomed she's become to riding in the back seat! She always wants to jump in back! We've even taught her to sit and wait before she can get out I'd the car-so we'll behaved! We took her to Kentucky a few weeks ago to visit family-she slept most of the trip!"

Annie has a better social life than I do :)

Thanks for all the lovely comments regarding my visit with hooker Sheila.  Here is part of what she had to say, "Thanks everyone for your very kind words.  Lauren has such sweet blogging friends."

Speaking of blogs, there's a relatively new blog you need to visit if you haven't already done so, Dogwood Farm.  Louise is a hooker, pug mom and a real sweetie!

It's been over two weeks and I've not heard from the winner of the rug pattern, so I've drawn a new name.  Congrats to NMK.  You must contact me within the week with your snail mail address to claim the pattern.

Thanks so much for stopping by.
Pug hugs :)
