Mexican Leftovers ~

Yesterday, DSO, Ernestine and I took a little road trip about an hour and a half south.  Ernestine loves to go bye-byes.  Here she is sitting on what we call her catbird seat. 

 She is always checking out the scenery.

I just LOVE this face.
Our destination was to pick up a seventeen pound Mexican leftover.  See, whenever a pug comes in to Ohio Pug Rescue, she is given a unique name.  If not, OPR would have dozens of Franks (think Men in Black) and many Pugsleys.  To attain this goal, there is a monthly theme and the pugs are named accordingly.  One month the theme was Mexican food and since all the names were not used, this month the theme is leftover Mexican food :)
Meet Enchilada.  Here she is saying hi to Ernestine.   We call this a canine Google search.  {{Makes me glad I'm not a dog.}}  She is gathering information about Ernestine.  The picture is deceiving.  The girls are almost identical in size. 
Enchilada is a four and a half year old owner surrender.  She had been with the same family since she was eight weeks old.  A new grandbaby came to live with her people a year ago, and since then she has been jealous of the baby and has been pooping on the floor.  I am hoping I can turn this behavior around.  But . . . upon arrival at my house, I took her for a walk.  Nothing.  Not five minutes later she was pooping in my dining.  Momma was not a happy camper :(  Last night she was allowed the luxury of sleeping with me and she was a very good girl.  She started off on the spare pillow, but soon was pressed up against my body.  Today, she has barely been out of my sight.  So far, so good.  She is a cutie and quite the snugglebug.

Last night in the hooking room, she proceeded to climb on my huge pile of wool.

Here she sat for the entire time I was working on my applique piece.  {{Needless to say, the wool is now put away.}}

Ernestine has been visiting today and the girls are getting along just fine.
Please remember, if you are looking for a pet, be it a dog, cat, horse, even a skunk, PLEASE adopt, don't shop.
Thanks so much for stopping by.
Pug hugs :)


  1. Hi Lauren,
    I was all set to hear about some yummy Mexican leftovers!! lol
    Enchilada is so cute and so happy the girls get along so well!! Hoping the pooping issue is resolved! I would not be happy either!!
    Take care and good luck, my friend!
    Heart Hugs~

  2. After my boy Ben passed and was talking to his vet, they asked if I wanted to be a foster. Told them "No because I'd never want to give up the dog". I admire folks who can do that but don't think that I could care for them and then release.

  3. What a cutie. I had no idea where this Mexican leftover story was going but I like the yummy name.
    She took to you like a bear to honey.
    I have every confidence that you can train her with this emotional pooping.
    Good luck my friend.
    Hugs, Julia

  4. She is cute and you are patient.

  5. At first I thought you were going to talk about mexican leftovers. HA HA you fooled us, but Enchilada is a cutie. Hope she stays good for you. Janice

  6. She is a sweet pup and wonderful that you can foster them so they can find a new home. Sad that people cannot spend a little extra time to help retrain them in new situations.


  7. She is a really pretty girl. I hope you can get her trained after that bad habit. Earnestine is about the cutest dog ever. You are a good person Lauren to do that.

  8. How cute the girls are together. I'm sure you can help with her problem and she already is snuggling and wanting your attention. How sad pups must be when asked to leave their families. I can't imagine how heartbroken they are when left "out in the country" while their family drives away. Uh oh. Feeling the need to wield that stick again, must clean a rug.

  9. She is almost as cute as Ernestine and the names sure work well together.

  10. what an adorable pair...thank you so much for the love you give to these dogs...can't imagine giving up one of my fur kids for any reason...

  11. This little Mexican leftover struck my heart immediately! So sweet! Too bad I already have two rescues that are constantly on alert for any other dogs eyeing their forever home...
    Blessings, Patti

  12. So adorable....look at those wrinkles. She must feel so confused. Breaks my heart. You are good, Lauren.

  13. I would love to have those girls. Soon as I can retire ( in a year) I will have 2 more dogs, pugs preferably.
    I miss my Sissy and Olive dog
    They are so cute and glad they are making friends

  14. Enchilada is a cutie! I had to laugh at the Mexican leftovers...I thought you were going to show us a new recipe. SMILE. I've had Daisy for over 6 months and she has FINALLY stopped taking a potty break in the house. I was cleaning the carpet once a's been over a month, so I hope we are finally out of that stage! Enjoy your time with Enchilada.

  15. I hope you are successful with your new foster dog. Ernestine is so good to tolerate other pugs in her house.
