Cindy Lou Who ~

Not this Cindy Lou Who ~

But this one :)
Meet my new foster ~ Cindy Lou Who.  When I heard her name I was a bit befuddled, but my son reminded me that she was the little girl in The Grinch Who Stole Christmas.

There are angels on earth and the other day I met one named Vanny.  She is pug mom to Julio and lives in Queens, NY, but was visiting family in the Cleveland area for Christmas.  She was perusing Craigslist when she came upon a pug for sale for only $20.  An unspayed pug.  She was so worried about who might buy this girl and for what purpose, she went and got her knowing she could not take her home because of a one dog rule in her apartment.  She took her to the vet, bought her a crate, toys, jammies, food, etc.  She contacted Ohio Pug Rescue to save this girl, and now she is here with me.  Chompers (what kind of name is that for a girl?) is now Cindy Lou Who.  I'm guessing the theme for the month was characters in Christmas stories.  She is on an antibiotic for a UTI and she is having some real issues, hence the doggie diaper.  This is a first for me.  I'm hoping the meds kick in soon and it is nothing more serious.  This poor baby has obviously had MANY litters of puppies in her life.  The vet put her age at 5, but she looks much older.  She is the sweetest thing and has made herself quite at home.  Oh, and she is not quite a pug.  The vet says she's a puggle which was my first thought when I saw a picture of her.  She is now safe and that is the most important thing.
I can't believe I got a picture of my 3 favorite boys all smiling :)  Jake is now officially taller than his "little" Uncle Bill.  (My brother is "big" Uncle Bill.)  It looks like he soon will be as tall as his dad J.  He definitely looks like him.
Bill is on his way back home and will arrive in Las Vegas soon.  It is always so hard to say goodbye.  Both my boys have turned in to fine young men.  What more could a mom ask for?
I hope everyone has a safe and Happy New Year.
See you in 2019.
Thanks so much for stopping by.
Pug hugs :)

How wonderful to have had your boys with you at Christmas. They are quite handsome. Also what an angel indeed to save Cindy Lou Who and you also are an angel to take care of her. Janice

Bless your heart for fostering this cute little girl. I hope that she gets healthy soon too. I didn't know that there is such a thing as doggie diapers. Poor little girl. I'm sure she will do well with you. You have such a kind heart.

Jake is turning into a handsome man before our eyes. It seems a few years ago he was this cute little kid.
I'm so happy for you that you had all your boys with you for Christmas. They make you proud.
Wishing you a Happy New's Year's Eve and all the Best for 2019.
Hugs, Julia

What a sweet girl. I am so glad you have her now. That story just breaks my heart. I am glad she will have people to love on her.
Gosh, Jake has grown so much in the last year. I bet you are one proud Momma and grand mom! Nice looking gentlemen.
Have a wonderful start to the New Year.

Glad she is safe and cared for, wish they all were. Your week with your son went fast I'm sure, but how great they were all together. I can't believe how Jake has grown, time is flying isn't it? Happy new year to you! The wind is blowing out our power so I'm lighting a few candles!
